The post was shared on Twitter by user @WittenbergJason. It garnered 162k likes and 15k retweets since the time it was shared. “Spice level warning 0-5. We will no longer issue refunds when you order your food spicy and can’t handle it,” read the notice. The notice was directed at the US citizens who couldn’t bear the extra spicy zing of Thai food and may have demanded refunds in the past when they couldn’t digest the fiery dishes at the restaurant.

According to a Twitter user, the local palates in Fargo are such that they even think tomato ketchup is spicy. A bevy of other users reacted to the viral tweet, sharing their experiences with the piquant cuisines of South Asia. Some said that the restaurant staff automatically tuned down the spices keeping in mind the taste profiles of US citizens.
