If you want to ensure that you're getting the best experience when dining it, you'll want to note down the master chef's golden rules and keep them in mind the next time you visit a restaurant.
According to the Daily Mail, Ramsay's 3 tips and tricks when dining out are:
1. Skip the specials
The specials are apparently just a trap to get you to dine off the second menu. Ramsay explains that "specials are there to disappear throughout the evening. When they list 10 specials, that’s not special.
2. Be wary of menu items with exaggerated titles
Ramsay says less is more when it comes to the names of the dishes on the menu. Restaurants are notorious for using titles like "world famous" to boost a certain item but that is usually based on just a handful of opinions and don't mean much.
"They start coming up with these terminologies, saying “and the wicked, famous, best in the country profiteroles.” Who said that? Who named that?" asks Ramsay.
