The Rolling Stones star Mick Jagger reportedly left a USD 500 tip, that’s Rs 34,079 approximately, for the staff at an eatery in New York. An upscale Chinese eatery, situated in New York, is a favourite among the A-list, with Cuba Gooding Jr, Rita Ora and previously visiting for some food.

When Jagger swung by the restaurant earlier this week with a group of five, plus security, he reportedly left a USD 500 tip for a USD 478 bill, reported TMZ.

Jagger and his friends ordered big, tucking into lettuce wraps, tuna tartare, chicken satays and green prawns for starters. The party then moved onto an order of noodles and peking duck, before finishing with baked alaska for dessert.

Eyewitnesses say The Rolling Stones legend ate his meal quickly and was very polite to staff.

Jagger joins a growing list of 2016’s most generous celebrity tippers, which also includes Jim Carrey, who is said to have left USD 225 for a USD 151 bill and Amy Schumer, who went one better, by gifting a lucky waitress USD 1,000 on a USD 77 tab at Broadway’s Richard Rodgers Theatre when she watched Hamilton.
