Don't do that, that is a very bad database design. For several reasons:

1. You are storing data in the metadata of the database. The database design should not change when you store data in it.

2. You would have to create the SQL dynamically to access the data. That makes the system less robust, and it has bad effects on caching in the database.

3. Searching for data across reviews gets extremely inefficient, as you would have to open all tables and get the data for each review separately.

Just store all the reviews in the same table.

Advice about what? Identifying the records in the table?

Use whatever you had planned to use for uniquely naming the tables, for identifying the records instead.
