The job of a food critic is quite challenging! There is a misconception about food critics that they enjoy incredible privileges such as free foods and drinks, amazing perks and so on. But it is in fact not true! The job of a food critic is a double-edged sword, there are other considerations than simply eating and writing about it. They must make multiple visits to the restaurant and keep a close watch on various aspects like food, ambience and service before penning their review. Hence they must be honest and thoughtful about what they write. They also have to bear the brunt of restaurants for negative reviews. Recognising their unparalleled efforts, we at Bonusapp have decided to honour such deserving Indian food critics who voice their opinion in a compelling way and have succeeded in leaving an indelible mark. We have aligned the list of the amazing Top 10 Indian food critics – 2018 alphabetically rather than assigning any particular ranking.
