So if you are planning to go out for a Romantic Dinner, Dining with kids, Girls night out, Beer in a bar etc, Zomato guide is the place to search best of restaurants in its category.
Print and paper quality is world-class and coupled with beautiful pictures, and an appropriate font size that does not strain the eyes. The guide also provides QR codes for all listed restaurants enabling users to check updated menus, contact information and other details for the restaurants on their smartphones. Listing is based on user ratings given on net by the online users. Some may say that this is the most democratic way to go, but most of us know how easy it is to skew the rating by related parties in their favor by logging in through different accounts.
