Why do some restaurants have 'Sponsored' under their names?
Typically, we determine a restaurant’s ranking by its distance from the customer, quality of reviews and popularity. The higher the restaurant scores in these three areas, the better its ranking order will be.
However, restaurants can pay to appear higher in the restaurant list. When a restaurant does so, we indicate this with the word ‘Sponsored’. Distance, reviews and popularity still affect the position of a sponsored restaurant.
