Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

My wife and I enjoyed a wonderful dinner filled with much appreciation from all the guys at MASSA. Definitely, a unique experience, with delicious food and service that exceeds the standards found in most restaurants. Super friendly people, eager to explain to you about the...dishes, their ingredients and part of the history of Türkiye, definitely a place to return and to recommend to anyone who wants to spend quality time, surrounded by people who make an effort to give the best of each of them.More
