I emailed Zomato a few days ago. I asked what they charge restaurants to remove poor reviews. There has been no reply to date.

Hi Warehi,

Thanks for writing in.

Being a restaurant discovery and reviewing platform, we act only as an intermediary to facilitate restaurant and customer interaction. Any feedback that is posted on Zomato and is in violation of our guidelines is removed immediately. However, if we cannot confirm a violation, we're not in a position to remove reviews.

Please do feel free to write back to me in case you feel that there might a review that violates our guidelines and is live on your restaurant page, and we'll surely take a look into the matter at the earliest.
