Food – The most important element of any food review. This rating is primary focused on the quality of the food on its own and also as a secondary factor takes on the other 3 criteria to form the score. Food score is based on taste of dishes, use of flavour, presentation – impressive artistry in dishes, balance and depth of flavour in dishes, while using quality ingredients. i.e freshness of meat/chicken/vegetables. High scores are even for making it a hugely memorable experience for the diner.

Service – Customer service, the politeness of staff and waiters. Attentiveness of waiters must lead to good satisfaction levels. Service with a smile please!

Atmosphere – Looks of a where we eat are important, this takes into account of the decor and everything that comes with it. Design of most aspects, such as Menu design, lighting, Seating arrangements, tableware, music, wall, floor, ceilings, acoustics and other features like waterfalls, view etc

Value – Value is based on the price of said meal against the all the above criteria. Value takes into consideration the location of the restaurant, (i,e East London Vs Mayfair, you can’t expect prices to be the name) The phrase you get what you paid for comes to mind, Good food and service comes at a premium usually. Value will depend on an individual bases. Portion sizes and what you get for your money also is taken into account. Comparisons will be drawn against food of similar cuisine and location to formulate this score.
