A bit about them: Australian journalist and food author Dani Valent has been a restaurant critic for almost 20 years, with a weekly restaurant column in Melbourne’s Sunday Age since 2006.

“My approach is to always take a restaurant on its own terms: there’s no point slamming a burger joint because it doesn’t have white tablecloths. I try to be constructive in my criticism and I’ve always got the diner in mind: there are many places you could choose to go. Why should it be here?”
