Dirty restaurants or canteens can be the root cause of serious health issues and foodborne illnesses. This is why it’s important to inform about any unsanitary practices or uncleanliness you observe at a restaurant. Whether it's suspiciously spoiled ingredients, unwashed produce, or an overall filthy kitchen, speaking up can help protect other diners.
By informing the appropriate authorities or the restaurant management about the issue, you can help prevent these health risks and ensure that the restaurant takes steps to improve its hygiene practices. Additionally, reporting a dirty restaurant can hold the establishment accountable for its actions and ensure that it takes responsibility for maintaining a clean and safe environment for its customers.
If you have experienced an unsafe or unhealthy food experience due to hygiene issues at a restaurant, there are a few steps you can take to report the problem:

I am writing today regarding the restaurant (name of restaurant), located at (full address details) where I recently experienced an event which disgusted me so much that I will never return to the restaurant again.
I highly suggest that the Department of Health & Hygiene investigates their health and safety licence, as well as the cleanliness of their food serving areas, kitchens and general hygiene of the staff preparing and serving the food to customers.
Going out to eat is supposed to be one of life's pleasures, something to be enjoyed, where the customer puts their trust in the restaurant's reputation as well as food hygiene in the kitchen.
During my recent visit to (name of restaurant) I ordered (details of the dish). Only moments after starting to eat I noticed (details of what you found in your dish). I immediately felt sick and called over the staff.
They apologized and removed my dish and asked me if I wanted something else! I declined to order something else, as my appetite was completely gone, I asked for some tea. My partner who was with me and had ordered the same thing, no longer wanted to eat their meal either, as knowing that the dishes were prepared together in the same kitchen was enough to put us both off the food.
When the bill arrived, I was surprised there was a bill at all! With such an incident, the restaurant should have made the entire meal and tea complimentary! My tea was not even complimentary! Complete lack of customer service and the entire experience has disgusted me that I will never go there again.
Please look into the matter; this restaurant should be closed down for severe lack of hygiene!
