Our budget doesn't always allow for hotel stays, so we're open to accepting complimentary hotel stays. Acceptance is at our discretion, so we will still continue to be honest about our experience and stay. Please note this is only applicable for hotel reviews, and not restaurants.
Ratings are considered within the context of what each restaurant is hoping to establish. For example, we judge a buth kade as a buth kade and a French restaurant as a French restaurant.
Here’s what the stars mean:
YAMU’s primary source of revenue is currently advertising. However, Editorial and Advertising are strictly separate. If there’s a conflict, Editorial wins. The value we deliver to advertisers depends on us being a trusted and popular resource for users. Therefore the user always comes first.
Written features and videos (never reviews) can be sponsored by brands, but the content of the feature is entirely at the discretion of YAMU’s editorial team.
We’re not really sure that a MA in Culinary Critique exists, but even if it did, none of us have one. We don’t claim to be experts or gourmets, we’re experienced writers who enjoy good food. We try to give our readers an honest impression of our dining experiences, as we would to a friend.
We’ve collectively dined at over 800 restaurants in Sri Lanka alone. We’ve sampled a broad range of cuisines from around the world and most of us are experienced, published writers.
Sorry, we don’t remove reviews. If you’re really unhappy with your review or feel like we’ve been unfair, you can talk to us about it (preferably without yelling). Our editorial team will review your complaint and, if justified, will return for another review.
Apologies. Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll fix this ASAP.
You probably violated the comment policy.
No, as dope as your hair undoubtedly is, we don’t actually buy or distribute human hair. We’re not sure why we keep getting asked this. Try Trendz hair salon.
