  • On my previous visit, this dish tasted better.

  • I preferred this meal on my previous visit.

  • I'd like to make a complaint. This meal tasted better the last time I visited.

You can refer to the food as a 'meal' or 'dish' unless it is a specific food.
By saying ' on my previous visit' you will let the restaurant know that you have been here before.
You can also begin your sentence with, "I'd like to make a complaint."This prepares your waiter and also ensures that you are talking to the correct person. For example - they may want to call over the chef or a senior member of staff to listen to your problem.

  • The last time I ordered this dish, it tasted better.

    play icon

  • The food tasted better when I was here before.

    play icon

  • Upon my last visit, the food tasted better.

    play icon

When making a complaint to the waiter/waitress you can say "The last time I ordered this dish, it tasted better." or "Upon my last visit, the food tasted better." Both of these responses can appropriately give feedback to the chef through the other staff.

If you were making a comment to a friend, family member, or co worker you were eating with you would say something casual like "The food tasted better when I was here before."

  • This dish tasted better last time I had it.

    play icon

  • I prefer the way this dish tastes the last time I had it.

    play icon

  • Last time I ordered this dish, it tasted better.

    play icon

All three of these phrases say that the food was better the last time than it was on your most recent visit. The first phrase is probably the most simple.

  • I have been to this restaurant before, but the food tasted better last time.

    play icon

Examples:

I have eaten here before, I enjoyed the food more the last time I was here.

The food used to be better at this restaurant.

I enjoyed the food more the last time that I was here.

Maybe they have changed chef's here, this dish tasted better the last time that I was here.

The two sentences you see provided above are excellent ways to express to your listener that the meal you had was better before. In the first sentence you will see the term last time. This term means before. This term is appropriate for informal settings, like talking with close friends or family. It would make a great addition to your vocabulary.

  • It tasted better the last time

    play icon

  • It seems to me that the quality of the food was much better the last time

    play icon

When we go to restaurants, we always expect the food to be great. It is unfortunate at times that we have bad experiences and we have to complain. We don't necessarily have to complain to the restaurant but we can complain to the person we are with. If the last time the food was great then we expect that the second time.

These two sentences are very good ways of expressing that you are not happy with the quality of food on this visit, compared to the last visit.

こう言えますよ、
❶It tasted better before.
(前の方が美味しかった)。

❷The food used to be better.
(料理前の方が良かった)。

お気に入りのレストランの質(quality) や味( flavor) が落ちると本当残念ですよね。

参考に!

  • This does not taste as good as before

    play icon

  • The standard of food has lowered since the last time I've been here

    play icon

  • I've had this dish prepared better before

    play icon

'This does not taste as good as before' this phrase tells them that what you are eating does not taste as good as it has previously

'The standard of food has lowered since the last time I've been here' this phrase says that normal good food here has lowered in standard since your previous visit

' I've had this dish prepared better before' this phrase explains that some time previously you've had the same dish made better /made tastier

Here are three very similar sentences to describe this concept but all have one thing that changes it from the other. The first example is very general and talks about, "before," in a general past moment, whereas the second and third use the words, "last time," to refer to the last time you were at the restaurant or, "the first time," to talk about the very first time you tried a dish in comparison to others.

  • This dish tasted better before.

When you want to express that a certain dish in a restaurant you have had before tasted better; then you may explain this in the following ways:
-It tasted better the last time I was here.
-This dish tasted better before.
-I had this dish here before and it tasted better the last time.

  • What a disappointment! It was better the last time.

    play icon

  • I was expecting it to be as good as the last time I tried it.

    play icon

  • I was let down by my experience this time. It was better before.

    play icon

When we have tried something before and we enjoyed it, then we have an expectation or standard of how it should taste. Then we feel let down or disappointed when things do not meet our previous expectation.
When we enjoyed it before we can say 'the last time'.
We can also say that we expected it to be as good as the time we had before, meaning of a similar standard.

  • Not as good as it used to be...the quality has slipped.

    play icon

  • The food was disappointing, it's not as good as used to be. The quality has slipped.

    play icon

Now and again we may find ourselves disappointed when we return to a favourite restaurant only to find the quality has deteriorated.
In this situation we could simply say, it's not as good as it used to be.
It is not uncommon for an establishment to become complacent when they have established a good reputation and have a good clientele.

  • It has been better.

    play icon

  • I have had better here.

    play icon

  • It was better last time.

    play icon

It has been better.
I have had better here.
It was better last time.

When you are in a restaurant that you have been in before and you want to say that the food you had was better the last time you were there, or it was better in general, then you can say one of these three sentences.

I hope this helps.
Have a great day.

You would like to mention in a restaurant that when you went there before, the meal tasted better. In that case, depending on how critical you want to be, one of the above suggestions may be suitable.

  • I preferred the way this dish was prepared the last time I was here.

    play icon

  • Has this recipe been changed? I preferred how it tasted before.

    play icon

1. I preferred the way this dish was prepared the last time I was here.
To prepare a dish means to cook, fry, steam or bake something.
The last time means the previous time.
Another example:
The last time I ate here, the restaurant was under different management.

2. Has this recipe been changed? I preferred how it tasted before.
By asking whether the recipe has been changed, you are making the
restaurant staff aware that you have clearly noticed the difference in
taste.
"...how it tasted before." This is a clear but polite indication that you
do not like the new recipe.

  • Have you changed the recipe? Since, the meal isn't as nice as the first time I came.

    play icon

  • This restaurant has gone down in my estimation.

    play icon

  • When I came before, the dish was much better.

    play icon

The first one is saying that they must have done something different to the food.
"Gone down in my estimation," is a common phrase to show that in our opinion something has got worse.
