A diner at a Sydney restaurant has posted a video of a “horrible experience” where she was served a steak covered in live maggots.

Stella Kim said she was dining at The Ranch in North Ryde to celebrate a 1000-day anniversary with her boyfriend last Wednesday, and was served a steak “full of worms”.

Ms Kim posted a video to her Facebook page which appears to show a steak crawling with maggots.

“Live worms [were] coming out of the steak,” she said in her post.

“We couldn’t believe this was happening at one of the big restaurants in Australia … don’t know how many people are affected by this.

“I wish no-one has to go through this horrible experience. We have lost our appetite.”

Hi everyone, I would like to share my horrible experience at The Ranch Hotel, North Ryde on Wednesday night 27th Sep. 2017. We ordered steaks and one of our steak was full of worms. Live worms coming out of the steak. We couldn’t believe this was happening at one of the big restaurant in Australia. Don’t know how many people are affected by this. Here’s a video. Sorry you have to see this. On top of that the Ranch has been deleting our reviews also their whole tab for reviews at their Facebook page has been disappeared recently. I hope NSW Food Authority City of Ryde take some actions to deal with this offensive and disgusting service, as they are putting a lot of diners at risk. I wish no one has to go through this horrible experience. We have lost our appetite. Also Ranch has been saying this happened instantaneously and worm bursted out somewhat like the Big Bang that created our universe. If someone is expert in biology and thermodynamics please review the video so that they are educated on food handling.

The video has been shared and commented on thousands of times.

Ms Kim said the restaurant offered them a refund and $150 in vouchers.

Andrew Yong, legal officer for the ALH Group which owns The Ranch, told the ABC the restaurant had apologised to Ms Kim but he was not sure if compensation had been offered.

He said The Ranch had conducted its own internal investigation into the incident and had determined the maggots were likely laid after the steak was cooked.

Mr Yong said it was an isolated event at The Ranch and more than 260 steaks were served that same night without incident.

He said the company had spoken to City of Ryde Council and were happy for them to conduct any investigations into the incident.

Stella Kim said she reported the incident to the NSW Food Authority and North Ryde council however the NSW Food Authority said it had not received a complaint.
