1) When submitting food poi's, do ensure that it is of reasonable quality to you. If it comes recommended by someone you trust that's also good enough.
2) When submitting food poi, please ensure you put "Restaurant" in front and not at the back. Name should always follow the signboards when possible. There will be some scenarios where exceptions are made.
a) places such as old town white coffee, old boy kopitiam, mcdonalds, pizza hut and all those whereby without mentioning the word restaurant it is already understandable that it is a place for food.
b) some shops have chinese or indian characters only. your translation might be required and during translation please place "Restaurant" at the front unless that description is unnecessary. This scenario i will leave to your discretion.
Apart from that, if the word restaurant comes behind, please place it in front.
example: Ah Lim seafood and Syed Abu restaurant. Change it to Restaurant Ah Lim seafood and Restaurant Syed Abu.
example2: A taste of India. Change to Restaurant A Taste of India.
example3: KFC & Pizza Hut & Swensens Ice Cream. Leave it as KFC and Pizza Hut and Swensens Ice Cream.
example4: 咖喱鱼头 Change to Restaurant Curry Fish Head.
3) Give as much information as possible. tel numbers and operating hours or days would be of great help. recommendations on orders would be great. Halal or non halal or pork free or vegetarian is also of great value. any little detail, helps !
