My Regrets ordering food online | Not doing the same mistake again.

avatar

Comfort me by saying, I'm not the only one who got defrauded by an online food order.

I usually order food from well-known restaurants. They deliver good food, on time. It's not like I feel 100% satisfied every single time. But never felt like crying over my food.

A few days ago I choose one popular international food delivery app. I ordered Thai chicken, chicken nachos, and a small Pizza. My mistake was I fall for the discount. I didn't take the time to see the restaurant review. Also, it was not a well-known restaurant.

Anyway, the food was delivered on time. But what I got?

It doesn't look bad, I know.

The food was cold, even the fries. The nachos were soggy. I would not say the taste was too bad compared to its price. Well, I was not expecting anything better. But no one can eat soggy nachos, they could provide the toppings separately, right?

I had to throw one-third of the nachos.

Anyway, now let's talk about the pizza!

I don't know if I should call it even a pizza or not.

It was loaded with raw tomatoes, onion, cucumbers, and whatnot. Also, it was literally on bread, not pizza crust. I would not mind if they advertise this like the photo.

And the Thai chicken!

It was cold, burnt in some places, felt like fried on spoiled oil.

I hate wasting/throwing away food. But this time I had no other option than to throw a portion of my food. I reviewed the restaurant. But maybe people will fall for the discount like me without going through the reviews.

It was a bad experience in many many good experiences.

I believe restaurant owners should be a little more honest. Coz this food literally ruined my afternoon mood.

I'm not gonna make the same mistake again, I hope you will also not gonna do that.

Have a good day, everyone.

I know how it feels, especially when the order is late and cold, feels like an absolute waste of money. Always check the reviews, especially the number of ratings to the actual rating ratio. Even though big restaurants do mess up their orders sometimes, most of the time the food is already cold after reaching.

It was a mistake, I don't usually order from such restaurants. Anyway, I will be careful from next.
Thanks :)

OMG! Why'd they deliver a thing as that. Looking at the so called pizza it's not pizza at all and doesn't look attractive to me in any way. Seems they really don't have customers that's why they are less experienced and brought you something far from what you ordered. Take heart!

They thought they can get away and do business like this for long. But that's not true, we all know that. Any way I will be careful from next.
Thanks.

Oh man, it looks horrible! While the pandemic appeared, a lot of online ordering was done here. Not just by us, but by many people, especially when the restaurants had to close, it felt good that we could at least support some of them by ordering online. There are 2 big food ordering companies here, and one of them is considerably better than the other but charges a much higher delivery fee where the other often has free delivery. I have to admit, that whenever I complain, there is always some sort of compensation. With the less great company, it's often a higher compensation than the other one that usually offers free delivery tokens only. BUT I know not that you should let your voice be heard because otherwise nothing will change. I hope they at least offered you some sort of compensation as well?

Funny thing is that when you browse through our online food delivery apps nowadays (since a month or 6 this is the case) you will find many supermarkets added, but also normal stores and people with webshops that added their store there. Quite lucrative as you can deliver your items to the client the same day instead of dealing with postal companies (which is a pain here :) )

One of the upsides and good things that came forward due to the pandemic, people getting creative and this is a big plus if you ask me. Too bad most of the other things coming forward from it are horrible ;)

I have many many good experiences with ordering food online. It saved me during pandemics, during my sick days, and so on.
We should check the ratings. But because of false advertisement, it's become difficult. Anyway, it was a bad experience, I have to be careful about this from next.
Thanks for adding your words.

Oh I agree totally, it would have been a lot harder during the pandemic while mostly inside. I totally appreciate all the shops and stores stepping up and adding their products to those delivery services as well! It's cheaper than normal delivery. And the thing I hate the most about false advertisement is the fake pictures. I usually have a nose for them, but if I miss it, opening the order will make it clear instantly. Have a nice day!
