    Yes, tip him; a small amount will probably help with the food come out better. : (0 votes)
    No, don't tip him; you're tipping for services at the end when you get the bill. : (10 votes)

    These people are professionals, and are not going to give you a sub-standard banquet just because they didn’t get a pre-tip.  I have never heard of such a thing.  I mean if that was the way they worked, then word of mouth alone would dictate they are not the people to go to for anything.  I think you should keep in your pocket until after.

    @JellyBelly_Luv: Honestly if hes providing the service at the hotel that you booked then why would he get a tip?? And a $300 one at that? Seriously, its his job to cook food, I dont get tipped for doing my job correctly.

    I’ve heard something about “tips” meaning “to insure proper service”…meaning, yes, you should give some ahead of time, and more later if it’s good.  Still, I wouldn’t risk it.
