A Woolworths customer’s savage review of a popular microwaveable meal found in-store warning others not to buy it has gone viral online.

A Sydneysider was buying groceries at Woolies Marrickville Metro in the inner west when they spotted a bizarre handwritten note attached to a Coco Earth Butter Chicken with Naan meal on the shelf.

The critic rated the sauce as ‘OK’ but slammed the rest of the premade meal, which costs $6 and is ready to eat after 90 seconds in the microwave.

‘Chicken like eating old rope. Naan – inedible unless you like eating rubber. Same with Tikka,’ the note read.

A photo of the note was uploaded to Reddit two days ago, where it has since been upvoted 2,000 times.

‘Someone left this review of a butter chicken meal at Woolies today,’ the post was captioned.

‘I’ve had those, you’re better off eating the bowl,’ one user commented.

Another added: ‘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.’

A third wrote: ‘Any time you can buy chicken which is covered in anything (sauce, coating, etc) I guarantee it will be the most garbage tier chicken.’

Many were grateful for the critic’s honest review, who was hailed a hero online.

‘Not the hero we wanted but the hero we needed,’ one person commented. 

A second wrote: ‘The people needed to know, and this shopper delivered.
