We’ve all been there – ordering a takeaway only to find they’ve left off your six McNuggets, or that you’ve received an order for a family of four.
Well, we might have all been there, but it’s safe to say we haven’t been here .
A woman went viral on Twitter last night after she shared what had shown up in her Turkish takeaway in Clapton, Hackney.

She had ordered a pot of garlic sauce with her meal, but what showed up was something more extreme – a whole cardboard box of it.
She wrote on Twitter : “Ordered a 250ml portion of garlic sauce with our takeaway and I dunno what I was expecting but it wasn’t this.”
The tweet quickly amassed over 12,000 likes, and commenters began sharing their own takeaway stories.
One wrote: “Don’t know why this reminds me of the time my wife ordered some sort of chocolate brownie pudding and the pub kitchen mixed up the white chocolate sauce with the caesar dressing.
“She ate half of it before she realised.”
Another said: “At a Chinese all you can eat buffet, my mum once took what she thought was a banana fritter and smothered it in golden syrup, only to find it was battered chicken!”
Another user replied: “Actually that sounds fine.”

One story read: “On holiday in Spain, I ordered a chocolate and hazelnut calzone for dessert.
“Chef got mixed up and poured chocolate sauce all over someone else’s ham and cheese calzone which was then served to me!”
The enormous garlic dip was delivered from a Turkish restaurant named Dom’s Place, which describes itself as serving traditional Turkish food with a modern twist.
