Disclaimer and The Purple Doll's Rating System

Friday, May 20, 2016


The Purple Doll contains restaurant reviews, food product reviews, recipes and other occasional non-food-related random ramblings.

⇒ While I attend food tasting invitations from restaurants and accept products for review, I give out 100% honest opinion and do not take any means of compensation in exchange for a positive review.

I like eating out and reviewing restaurants and food, but please bear in mind that I don't have a proper culinary background. My palate is not as sensitive as those of acclaimed food critics, so my reviews come from a yuppie-who-loves-eating-out's point of view.

I offer ad spaces on my blog, but it's subject for approval based on relevance and my personal feelings toward the brand. (I can't advertise something I hate.) I don't have total control over my Google AdSense, Nuffnang and Innity ads though.

I usually hold contests and giveaways in partnership with sponsors. However, this doesn't directly reflect positive opinion on the said brand. (I normally include a review with my contests and giveaways, you can tell if I'm a big fan of the company/brand or not.)

If you're a blogger who would like to use some of my photos, make sure to link back to my blog. For commercial use, please email me first at sumi@thepurpledoll.net.



The Purple Doll uses a rating system for restaurant reviews according to these criteria:

⇒ Taste: Overall flavor, my general impression on the dishes, plating
⇒ Ambiance: Conduciveness of the place, cleanliness, noise level
⇒ Service: Hospitality, courteousness, promptness (mostly for front of the house)
⇒ Price: Affordability, reasonableness of pricing in relation to taste and portion sizes
⇒ Overall Value: My general impression about the whole restaurant

While these criteria, especially the taste, are very subjective, I try and rate them as objectively as I can -- with the point of view of a modern 20-something yuppie who knows a thing or two about food. (I'm not too nit-picky, but I'm not very lenient either.)

5 - Very Good (Definitely worth coming back for again and again!)
4 - Generally Good (I see myself coming back some time soon.)
3 - Generally Satisfactory (Will eat here again after a while.)
2 - Improvement Necessary (Won't be coming back any time soon.)
1 - Major Improvement Necessary (Will never ever come back!)
0 - Worst of the worsts! (Why don't you close down already?)
*Half points for something in between

  2. Yesterday, while I was at work, my cousin stole my iPad and tested to see if it can survive a 40 foot drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation. My apple ipad is now broken and she has 83 views. I know this is completely off topic but I had to share it with someone! aol login
