A RESTAURANT owner has hit back at a diner who claimed their meal was ruined and that they were "assaulted by garlic".
The mystery eater, who goes by the username charliewarlie91, left a searing review on Tripadvisor of his meal at Delgado's in Warrington.
"Starter was poor value for money and tasteless… very disappointed," the irate customer wrote.
Charliewarlier91 described his starter and main as being "toxic with garlic", complaining that he had "never felt so assaulted with garlic in my life".
He wrote: "The pasta dish was more of a garlic soup with barely any chicken in it.
"It was inedible [and] I was embarrassed and disappointed I suggested coming here based on previous good reviews.

"We had some pizza garlic bread [and] again [it was] chewy strange tasting dough, something was off. I was just speechless."
He added: "Wouldn't recommend anyone risk eating here."
Delgado's owner Andrew S hit back at the harshly worded review with a stellar come back of his own.
He said the customer ordered the "Toscana which says on the menu 'chicken and sautéed garlic mushroom in a garlic sauce served with tagliatelle'" as well as a garlic bread pizza.

"So you ordered garlic in garlic with garlic yet complained it's too garlicky!" Andrew shot back.
He also accused the customer of uploading a picture of a meal "half eaten with hardly any pasta left making it look more saucy" and said no other customers complained about the pizza dough, which all came from the same batch.
He added: "The waiters did 2 checkback with you to ask if everything was OK and you didn't say you wasn't happy.
"If you had mentioned it at the time we would have made you another dish of your choice but you kept quiet and ran straight to Tripadvisor.
"I feel embarrassed for YOU reading your review".
