Four customers wrecked a porridge restaurant along Upper Serangoon Road after a dispute over their bill.

A cleaner at the restaurant told Shin Min that the customers got into a heated argument with the eatery's staff over their meal's price.

They then tossed the dishes onto the ground and flipped the table, shattering its marble top.

The four then picked up restaurant's wooden chairs and smashed the glass surfaces in the serving area.

Eatery staff called the police, the group reportedly left before officers arrived.

Staff told Shin Min that no employees or customers were hurt in the incident.

A photo of the restaurant showed broken glass all over the floor and a few damaged chairs.
