What is the tax payable at a restaurant in hyderabad.?

I went to a restaurant in Hyderabad today. When they presented the bill, it had a service tax charge of 10%, and on top of that, a VAT of 14.5%. this seemed very weird and looks like a rip off. I asked the manager and he mumbled an unsatisfactory response. can someone please clarify.
thank you

  1. he definitely cheated you…

    no restaurant in India can charge you more that 12.5%……

    VAT will only come in picture when you buy any product from them…..

    moreover service tax and VAT are totally different things…..

    if you have the bill with you…….go and file a case in consumer court without a delay….
