  • I ordered food through Biteclub app and got confirmation of that order after 10 Minutes, so its almost 70 minutes, but it is not the end. Thought I did not get any information of my order even after 2 hours, I called up restaurant, but they said they didn’t receive the order. I tried calling Biteclub… got a pre recorded msg we will call you in 10 to 15 minutes… still no call….it was online paid order… no food… don’t know about payment….which was not served at all & no information or intimation about that.they have closed for the day, mailed about this & till now no reply on mail neither any call …. Where is my food? or where is my money? Biteclub is a junk food ordering site. They serve cold food which almost lost all its aroma. C'mon what is the purpose of ordering such expensive food if they cannot maintain its essence. I can have a better Brown Sugar Ham Steak visiting TGIF than ordering food from Biteclub. They are just junk of chefs and mismanaged staff.
