Sussex takeaway owner turns up at customer’s house after review slams lack of free poppadom

A furious Sussex takeaway owner turned up at a customer’s house to challenge him amid a row over a free poppadom.

Inspector Darren Taylor of Mid Sussex Police said a man in the area wrote an online review complaining that ‘no matter how much you spend you don’t even get a free poppadom’ after buying an Indian takeaway on Friday evening (February 19).

But after writing the review the Haywards Heath takeaway’s owner turned up on the customer’s doorstep to take issue with the review. Inspector Taylor said: “Next thing he knows the owner of said restaurant has rocked up at his home address challenging him about this review.”

He confirmed the confrontation was just verbal and said no further action was taken after police were made aware of the incident.
