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

  26. When involved into the crypto world, it's necessary to remember that Research topics for cryptocurrency can be limitless and as various as the coins in crypto or, in the language of cryptocurrency. I found that the purple "Doll's Rating System" was an informative tool in my journey of self-discovery as I tried to see through the masks I was presented with. The disclaimers are clear and the rating system blunt, and they seem to me like a stalwart mate who leads me from the maze of choices
