A SUNSHINE Coast business has failed to 'curry' favour online, after a social media post about a discarded food order went sour.

Noosa's Curry Junction Cafe and Indian Restaurant took to Facebook to talk about something that left them feeling "really upset."

"Around 5.10pm one lady came to restaurant and placed order for three naan breads," the post read.

"I asked (for the) money and she said she will be back in ten minutes, please get my order ready, I will be back from (the) bank.

"We trusted on her and get order ready but she didn't come to pick up order.

"Really sad (because the) kitchen team does hard work and if someone does (things) like that (it is) really sad."

The post urged others not to do this to businesses, before offering to identify the "local lady" by posting a photo of her from their security tapes.

Social media was quick to heat up over the post, with the online community quickly labelling the complaint as "petty."

"This is a lot of fuss over three poxy naans Curry Junction. You've no idea why that woman didn't come back. This post hasn't helped your business," James French commented.

John Freyer pointed out that there are bigger problems happening in the world... like the mystery of his missing letterbox.

"Seriously ....just get over it and 'curry on!'," he said.

"There's more bigger issues happening in the world right now like my letterbox being stolen the other night and me seeing it floating down Weyba Creek the next morning."

Curry-themed puns aside, some were harsh with their criticism.

"This was obviously not intentional and really poor form to complain online about something so trivial, I'm so glad you weren't petty enough to put the poor woman's picture up," Ruth Hussey said.

Others were more gentle with their advice.

"Suggestion: take the money for the order before making it. Shouldn't have to, but sadly there are some who only think about themselves," Leanne-Harry Bailey commented.
