"The other day I went to McDonald’s with a friend to have a midnight snack, we saw this scene and were very touched.
"Not because of his actions and the exclusion of inconvenience to him.
"Instead, he was very loving towards that person and patient when he helped him to bite the burger.
"Thank you for helping him to eat a full meal so he can continue with his life."
A spokesman from McDonald's confirmed to Apply Daily that the incident took place at around 11pm on March 2.
They added the worker is a 19-year-old university student known only as 'He'.
He is said to be studying at Meiho University in Pingtung County and has worked at the fast food company in his spare time for two years.
The spokesman added that when the disabled man entered the restaurant, He asked him to wait upstairs.
When the teenager served the customer his food, He saw the man struggling to pick up his burger, so asked if he could help.
McDonald's said it would award the young employee for his act of kindness.
