In response to Chahar's complaint, Zomato promptly issued an apology, expressing genuine concern over his experience and pledging to address the issue promptly. However, Chahar remained firm in his stance, emphasizing that a mere refund would not suffice, as the inconvenience caused by hunger cannot be compensated for with money.
