Lost in translation is the only phrase that comes to mind after reading the menu card from a restaurant in Saudi Arabia. As it happens when travelling to different countries, language can become a barrier when it comes to communication. But the effort of one restaurant in translating the item on its menu from Arabic to English has left netizens in splits.Also Read - Post COVID-19, Travel Will Resemble Scene From Sci-fi Movie And we Agree With Anand Mahindra
A post that was shared on Twitter by user Vlada from Canada showed a picture of the menu from a restaurant in Saudi Arabia which had on one side the dishes printed in Arabic and on the other in English.
