    As the country returns to post-pandemic normalcy, and restaurants, pubs and bars across the country are welcoming eager diners, India’s largest dining out and restaurant tech platform, Dineout has unveiled a revamped reviews & rating section that will allow food connoisseurs to share their dining-out experiences on the Dineout app. This feature aims to help diners get genuine restaurant recommendations from thousands of verified reviews available on the platform, and book a table at the restaurant they find the most appealing.

    Dineout observed a surge in the number of customers on its platform & app, who are constantly looking for recommendations, reviews, ambience, food and much more at a restaurant. The new ‘Reviews & rating’ feature on Dineout will offer users the option to add photos and reviews at any of its 50,000+ partner restaurants across the country. With relevant sub-parameters such as Food, Ambience, Hygiene, Verified Reviews etc, now every diner can make informed gastronomical choices for themselves & their loved ones. Additionally, they can also share reviews they found useful while making dining out plans, or follow the Reviewer Profiles of their fellow foodies on Dineout.
