Worst Restaurant Experience?

Ask a Question

so tonight I went to a local restaurant that usually is pretty decent and had my worst ever dining experience. The staff were rude, the manager Just was something else, given dirty high chairs because they were “too busy to clean Them” and so much more. It’s so frustrating I’ve worked in this industry for years-granted on the other side of the door (a chef) but even I know without paying customers you don’t get paid. I never complain because I know how hard it is to work in this business but for once I felt certain that complaining was absolutely the right thing to do! so I just wondered if anyone had any bad experiences in a restaurant?

We went with a friend to an Indian restaurant near to High Park and all the food tastes like it was made with instant sauce... What u can buy from supermarkets for £1.It was also very expensive, even cheap tak away taste better than that food. Also they gave small portions, but from that food it was enough.

I know there are good chefs in some places, working hard... But when a chef does patak sauce instead of cooking curry paste lol... That is something straight should go to Kitchen Hell..


I actually won a £50 voucher for a relatively local restaurant. It’s always busy but I had an awful meal, so glad we didn’t have to pay full price just an extra £20 or so.


We have a weatherspoon and I did in joy there food. But last time I was in for a meal it was all full. The food was cold. The place was untied . Dishes left on table. But I've since find out it's up for sale. ☹☹


I hope you emailed a complaint ? Let us know the outcome if you did. Or did u complain on the spot and get any money off ?


Via email Because I’m not good with confrontation. we will see what they say.


I went to a local restaurant (and yes, I realise this wasn't the restaurant's fault) but the couple in the booth behind us were arguing. Really arguing. The man was yelling his head off, the woman was retaliating in kind and there was an infant in a car seat crying. It was just very aggressive (on both sides) and I was kinda astonished no-one really asked them to quieten it down or leave. Lots of people tutting and looking shocked but just letting them get on with it. We went and cancelled our order and left.


Yes, I went once (and the last ever time) to a chain restaurant (F&Bs) and ordered a chicken dish. When I tried to cut into the chicken it was solid inside. Upon investigation it was still frozen. I called for the manager and stated, calmly, that I would not like a replacement, I expect I should not pay for the drinks or starters, and that he should check immediately that the staff in the kitchen were capable of following the microwaving instructions in order not to poison the other clients. He accepted that this would be a fair thing to do. So I said goodbye and that I would never come again to the restaurant chain and that I would tell all my friends and colleagues about the incident. I never officially complained to the company. Does anyone think I should have?


Absolutely, I’m a timid creature so if I need to complain It Needs to be really awful. I emailed them. I don’t expect anything other than an apology but if you don’t complain or pass on your experience so many others will experience it!
