The advertisements published on the FoodOndoor Platform are independent of the reviews received by such advertisers.
We are a neutral platform and we don't arbitrate disputes, however in case if someone writes a review that the restaurant does not consider to be true, the best option for the restaurant representative would be to contact the reviewer or post a public response in order to clear up any misunderstandings. If the Restaurant believes that any particular user's review violates any of the FoodOndoor policies, the restaurant may write to us at firstname.lastname@example.org and bring such violation to our attention. FoodOndoor may remove the review in its sole discretion if review is in violation of the Terms, or content guidelines and policies or otherwise harmful to the Services.
