The Review Owl is written and managed by Saranya, a structural engineer and a freelance writer. Being an Indian settled in the Sultanate of Oman, Saranya provides her review writing services mainly in Bangalore and Muscat.

The Review Owl was started in April 2020 to help people find things they would love. Often, when faced with multiple choices of equally wonderful things, people look for reviews to help them make an informed choice and Saranya aims to help people with this.
