Frequently Asked Questions


What is World of Mouth?

World of Mouth is an independent restaurant guide powered by a global community of culinary experts. Together we are building the world’s best restaurant guide that's genuinely up-to-date and gives recommendations to every taste, mood, and wallet. Our mission is to connect passionate foodies with inspiring restaurants.

World of Mouth is for people who care about food and want to know the places right now, in their hometown and every place they visit. Does this mean fine dining, trendy new openings, wine bars, or street food? All of them.

What's the problem with current guides?

The noise of innumerable online reviews and the manipulation of paid sponsorships make it hard to find trustworthy guides on where to dine. World of Mouth removes the effort of sifting through ratings by providing recommendations from the world’s most trusted experts.

What kind of restaurants should I add to my recommendations?

Our focus is on the great places you’d recommend to a friend. Add anything from a white tablecloth joint to a hot dog cart that you genuinely think is worth visiting. Tips and for creating a good recommendation read our community guidelines.

How do I add a recommendation?

To add a new recommendation, tap the “+” button on the navigation bar at the bottom of the screen. Choose "Recommend" and search for the name of the restaurant, whether it's already in the app or you want to add a new place for other World of Mouth users to discover. You are now ready to write your recommendation.

I can't find a restaurant I want to recommend from the Search. What to do?

Try to add the location (city) in the search after the name of the restaurant. If the restaurant still doesn't appear, it is because the restaurant search is provided by a third operator and is limited to businesses registered on Google. We are working on this to get all the hidden spots on the World of Mouth map too.
