Food is everywhere and there’s a plethora of restaurants, but the act of sitting down to a well-prepared meal at a nice restaurant is becoming ever more important in our lives. MangoPlate is a smart application that removes the uncertainties about dining out: What’s on the menu? Is the food any good? How’s the atmosphere? What’s the price? Can I trust the reviews? MangoPlate eliminates these nagging questions and provides optimized restaurant recommendations customized to the user’s preferences.
Launched in 2013 as a user-participatory information service, MangoPlate is more than a simple search engine. It recommends personalized choices based on big data and the user’s location information. In just four years since its launch, the application exceeded 3 million cumulative downloads, and in addition to the Korean and English language services, it’s now offered in Chinese. With last year’s opening of the Chinese webpage (www.mangoplate.com/zh), the app has attracted a great number of Chinese tourists as its users, providing information about popular hot spots and unique foods in addition to the information on 4,300 restaurants previously offered in Chinese. It’s safe to say that MangoPlate has now become an absolute necessity among Chinese tourists.
Fast and easy restaurant search
|MangoPlate provides optimized restaurant information through screening options including region, food type, and price. For example,when filtered through the option settings “Incheon Yeonsu-gu,” “All Cuisines,” “~₩10,000,” and “Parking Available,” the results show a list of restaurants that meet all the requirements. Browse through each result, or sort by rating or distance and just pick the top result. When hunger kicks in but it’s hard to decide what to have, get help from the recommended keywords or other reviewers.|
|On MangoPlate, you won’t see fake reviews posted by professional bloggers or advertising agencies. Only authentic reviews on restaurants and dishes personally visited and tasted by customers make the cut, which is the core and basis of this service. If users attempt posting advertisements posing as reviews, thepostings are immediately filtered and deleted through MangoPlate’s unique algorithm. Restaurants proven to be connected to the malicious posts are subject to penalty.|
