The millionaire, who does not want to be named, was having a meal with two friends before paying the bill which came to around £100 pounds.
He entered his pin code into the card machine as usual but eagle-eyed restaurant owner spotted that the payment of £1,006,082.04 had been authorised by the bank.
He jokingly told the man that he had just paid for the most expensive meal in the world.
Mr Wahid, 51, who has been in the industry for over 30 years, said: ‘When he came to pay I gave him the card machine and he asked to put in the amount himself but it didn’t go through.
‘I then had to phone the bank for him and I answered all of the questions and they then gave me the confirmation code.
‘At this time he still had the card machine so I never saw the amount he had typed in.
‘But 10 minutes later I took the machine and looked at it and I just said ‘oh my god what’s happened, what have you done my friend’.
‘I looked at the receipt and then he looked at it and he just said ‘oh my’
‘He then rang his bank up to say it was the wrong amount and cancel it before paying the correct amount.’
‘This has to be one of the most expensive meals there has ever been.
‘I have never experienced anything like this. It was really, really shocking. I still can’t believe it.’
