Fake restaurant becomes London's top-rated eatery

A non-existent restaurant supposedly based in a garden shed briefly became London's top eating place on travel and restaurant website TripAdvisor, who on Thursday hit back at the hoaxers.
"As there is no incentive for anyone in the real world to create a fake restaurant it is not a problem we experience with our regular community — therefore this 'test' is not a real world example," it said.
"One day, sitting in the shed I live in, I had a revelation: within the current climate of misinformation... maybe a fake restaurant is possible?"
