Jamie Oliver may be a world renowned chef with best-selling books and beloved cooking shows, but that doesn’t mean he’s immune to a bad review from time to time.
And one of those restaurants is Jamie Oliver’s Diner in Budapest, which has a been whacked with a bunch of one star reviews.
One disgruntled customer was so horrified by the experience that he suggested he would ‘rather die’ than go back.
The scathing review, which was posted on Tripadvisor, read: “I thought that Jamie Oliver was famous for helping children eat better in food cafeterias. Well, probably he did. All the bad food he took from the cafeteria he brought on the table at this restaurant.
“The salads were sweet, the sweet potatoes seemed to be made from cake batter, and the sauces were sweet. I will send my hospital the invoice for diabetes.
“This restaurant was an experience indeed. Asked if I would repeat it I will happily say: I’d rather die.”
Another person wrote: “Drinks arrived wrong and had to wait for them to be changed. It took 1hr 20 minutes for food to arrive. No service whatsoever! Food overcooked. Don’t bother wasting your time.”
And a third warned other diners to ‘avoid this place like the plague.’
A fourth furious foodie even went as far as to call it the ‘worst restaurant in Budapest’, describing the food as ‘not eatable.’
One customer even claimed that they were served undercooked chicken.
“Waited over 1.25 hours for burger, chips and chicken meals. When it finally arrived the chicken was raw, bloody and cold inside”, they wrote.
“The food and service is an insult to the food industry and surely has no link to the man himself Jamie Oliver. The settings may look nice but trust me, avoid this place like the plague – it’s terrible!”
Poor Jamie Oliver!
That being said, Jamie’s Diner in Budapest also has a tonne of positive reviews to even things out.
“Outstanding service!” wrote one happy customer. “Food is great. Really enjoyed my meal and very hot ristretto. This one I would highly recommend.”
A second raved: “What a treat! One off my bucket list. Superb fun manager that made the whole vibe. The chicken wings are spectacular.”
So it’s not all bad! Just maybe check out one of Jamie’s other restaurants before you go for this one, eh?
