Some business attributes for my business are incorrect? Can I fix the business attributes?

Business attributes are used for customers to describe each business in a quantitative manner. The types of attributes that can be set for each business depends on the categories assigned to the business. Attribute values are set based on votes from our customers so Starz cannot change their value. Yes, we too love democracy!

For example, if 5 customers identify a restaurant to be in the Rs.100-Rs.599 range, and 7 customers place it in the Rs.500-Rs.999 range, then it would be shown as being in the Rs.500-Rs.999 range. If you believe that this classification is incorrect, you can encourage more of your customers to set the attributes for your business so the correct attribute value is selected.
