A Woolworths customer shared a hilarious handwritten product review of a butter chicken ready-made meal he discovered while perusing at his local store.

The shopper was in the refrigerator aisle at Woolies Marrickville Metro in Sydney's inner west when he noticed the unusual note of Coco Earth Butter Chicken with Naan.

"Someone left this review of a butter chicken meal at Woolies today," wrote the shopper in a Reddit post.

The accompanying note provides a savage review of the microwave meal.

"Sauce OK. Chicken like eating old rope. Naan – inedible unless you like eating rubber. Same with Tikka," the note said.

The customer's post quickly captured the attention of other Aussies, who have upvoted it over 2,000 times and offered their own take on the unconventional review.

"Oh my God, can you even call that stuff naan? It's gotta be one of the worst things I've ever eaten. I hate letting food go to waste but I made an exception for these abominations," wrote one shopper.

“Have to agree. The naan was tough as rubber with no flavour. The chicken was OK,” chimed a second.

While a third joked you’d be “better off eating the bowl” than eating the butter chicken.

'Normalise reviews in Woolworths', shoppers say

Meanwhile, several shoppers claimed the review was “amazing” and called for supermarkets to normalise these customer reviews.

"Can we normalise this?" one person asked.

"Normalise reviews in Woolworths. I haven't heard of that brand before, but now I know to keep avoiding it," wrote a second.

Others questioned whether it was the original poster who had written the review himself.

"By 'someone' do you mean you wrote it, took a picture, and then scurried out of the store?" asked a skeptical Redditor.

Another chimed: "That's precisely what I thought too."

However, the original poster quickly shut down the speculation by revealing he is vegan.

"Nah, considering I'm vegan, I would never buy this," he responded. So it seems a budding food critic is out there somewhere.
