Little Miss Sunshine (02-02-2015)
I had one bad expierence just yesterday. Kenilworth pub for lunch. I ordered a bacon lettuce avocado and tomato sandwich. menu said it came with chips and crumbed onion rings. after waiting such a long time, my beeper went off, so I go to the counter to collect my meal. there was this huge burger with everything on it, it was about 10 inches high. I said that is not what I ordered, so the guys in the kitchen said go back to the front counter. so then I was given more change, obviously the burger was more expensive, and so my order was put through again. once more after waiting about another 20 mins, I got the meal. I was expecting a sandwich but it was a huge bun, the onion rings were stone cold. the chips were burning your mouth hot, the bacon inside the bun was totally cold, it was cooked, but had no heat left. and the whole thing was over powered by a mayonnaise, that was not even mentioned on the menu. so all up a total mess. By the time I actually got the meal I was so hungry I ate it, but I certainly didn't enjoy it. marie
This was ages ago but my friend found a caterpillar in her salad and the owner refused to refund her money. Gross!
Mine isn't that bad. It was 18th birthday. 15 of us went out to dinner. Between the first meal being brought out and the last was over 2 hours and one meal was brought out with frozen green prawns on it. Apparently the chef could only cook one meal at a time. :/
The other was at a school function at a restaurant. We had all preordered and prepaid our meals a week before. After 1 and 1/2 hours waiting we all had to leave for the ceremony. Half of the group hadn't got our meals.
There have been numerous. One time I ordered a curry at a reputable restaurant. All was well until I bit into a piece of broken glass. I then managed to dig out a few smaller pieces. The waiter didn't seem concerned and asked me to order something else. I said it was dangerous and that other people may have been served glass. He then said I could have my meal for free. He still didn't get it so I got louder and louder until he felt it better to go to other people with the same dish and remove their food. It was a busy Friday night and it really concerned me that people were still being served the curry.
Not as bad as some...
At a bistro for a b'day, we all ordered, as did other tables. Waiter brought out a meal & took it to a table that had ordered after us. Then brought out more meals which came to our table. One person at our table got missed. It was realised that the first meal was taken to the wrong table so the waiter went over & got the meal off them & brought it to our table. It was half eaten...
Needless to say it got sent back.

Didn't happen to me but my brother and his family. They were out at a restaurant for dinner and just as they were about to eat one of them found a used bandaid in their meal. They got up and left in disgust without saying anything or paying.
Mine was a few weeks ago. I am a vegan so anytime we book a restaurant we always check that they are willing to provide a vegan meal for me. So we booked this restaurant for a birthday that was supposedly awesome. We had been looking forward to it since our relatives travelled 10 hours up for the dinner. Get to the restaurant and sat down, ordered some drinks and were handed our menus. I reminded the waitress that we had a vegan at our table and she said "A what?" I then had to educate her on what a vegan was. The chef was in no mood for vegans and obviously had a personal problem with the idea of a vegan. So our much looked forward to dinner ended up being my entire family gorging on massive seafood platters and gorgeous meals while I sat with absolutely nothing.
Some might say that's my own fault for being a vegan but we had checked and confirmed that they could prepare a vegan meal yet on the night decided they had no tolerance for vegans, even though we spent over $400 there!
I went home and ate baked beans on rye 😣
