Lets dispaly the ratings in terms of visual like if customer has given 2 rating then display two star, if 5 then 5 star.

Following Dax measure uses the Dax function REPT, that repeats text a given number of times , for text we provide a UNICHAR Code number 11088 that returns the yellow star character.

Ratings = REPT(UNICHAR(11088), AVERAGE(CutomerFeedback[ServiceFeedback]) )

Lets use matrix visual to dispaly the Customer and ratings given by them.
