It's become an everyday routine for everyone to order food online. Who is going to cook after a long and hectic day anyway?
However, a video of a delivery guy eating food supposed to be delivered is going viral and will make you may reconsider ordering food from Zomato.
The video was shared on Twitter with the caption, 'This is what happens when you use coupon codes all the time.'

Many thanks @ZomatoIN ensuring that food has been properly cooked N it's taste well. Don't forget to reward this staff for his extra effort for tasting. His act will definitely boost your business in long run. Cc @Ani59236160 @DRPRADIPBARUAH2— Pranjal Bordoloi (@bordoloi1984) December 10, 2018
Zomato shared a statement on Twitter after the incident.
If true, this is unfortunate and not in line with our beliefs. We take this very seriously and will soon introduce tamper-proof tapes, and other precautionary measures to ensure we safeguard against this.

The delivery boy, since the incident, has been taken off Zomato's platform.
This incident makes us question Zomato's procedure in ensuring that the food we order is safe and hygienic. How safe is it to order food from their app?
Also, is Zomato overworking its delivery personnel? Looking at how hungry the guy in the video is, are their working conditions actually conducive?
