(FOX 11) - Do you choose your restaurants based on online reviews?
If so, this story may shock you.
Turns out a top-rated restaurant doesn't even exist!
The Shed at Dulwich in London climbed its way to the number one spot on Tripadvisordot.com.
But it was all one man's elaborate plan to prove how easy it is to manipulate review sites.
It took the top spot in just months - beating out thousands of real restaurants.
'The Shed' even had its own website and wikipedia page and was also recognized by food critics who praised the restaurant for its apparent mystery and exclusivity.
