The customer added the $500 tip on top of their almost $35 meal and included a note to the business on the receipt.
“To help with the broken window,” it read.
Tây Giang Restaurant, whose owner is @CaroWyn_’s uncle, has been the target of a series of vandalisms resulting in his windows being destroyed, she wrote.
“Every time he fixes the window, it’s only a matter of days before it’s broken again,” she said.
The Twitter user said the patron’s actions “restored” her “faith in humanity.”
There has been a rise in anti-Asian attacks nationwide, with San Francisco seeing a rise in hate crimes by 140% and Los Angeles experiencing an 80% rise in the first quarter of 2021, NextShark previously reported.
