How often do you get time to visit a restaurant and have the food of your choice? After the busy day and traveling through the traffic do you still have enough energy left in you?
If you answered in negative to these questions, welcome to the world of online food services. With the rise in e-commerce in India, you have a lot more option than what you ever had before.
Now you won’t need to travel to your favorite restaurants or food points to satisfy your hunger and taste buds.
Below is a compilation of the options you have to deliver your food online. Have it in the confines of your home or take the delivered food to your terrace to have a moonlight dinner.
5 Great sites to order food
Previously hungryzone.com, is a renowned website. It has hundreds of restaurants across top Indian cities that can serve you food hot and fresh. I personally prefer justeat as this site has more restaurants in a locality. The order placement process is quite simple too.
From the home page, you just need to select the city of your residence. It will then prompt you with the available localities for your city. Just select the locality where you want your food to deliver and it will show you the entire restaurant list.
You also have the option to filter the restaurants by different criteria like rating, minimum order etc. Now select your favorite restaurant to find the menu from which you can order your items. Don’t forget to check if there are offers and discounts available in a few food points.
You can pay upfront through Credit/Debit, online banking or can prefer cash on delivery method.
If discounts and offers are what you are looking for then foodpanda is the perfect place to search for. They have more restaurant filter options than Justeat. Selections based upon pre-order and night delivery are unique in this website. The order placement workflow mostly remains same and easy to follow. Enter the coupon code to get a sweet deal !
You can pay upfront through Credit/Debit, online banking or can use the cash on delivery method. Compared to Foodpanda, I found Justeat support a little better though.
Another food ordering site with regular discounts and offers. This site is my favorite hunting ground for ordering food economically. They offer heavy discounts for your first order through their website. So if you happen to be a new user, I would suggest you right away to use TastyKhana to place your order.
Their homepage rocks, and better compared to Justeat or Foodpanda as they provide you with a simple search box where you type your locality, building name or other landmark information to get the list of available restaurants. This feature is not available with their competitors.
The ordering process remains same, but the whole experience of ordering in TastyKhana is better than any other site. On the flipper side, sometime I have seen their site crashing due to the heavy traffic load, which may be just temporary.
Again here, you have option to pay upfront through Credit/Debit, online banking or can use the cash on delivery method.
Though I don’t personally use this site, this is another option to look for to check for offers and discounts. In my opinion if you can get a good offer for your favorite restaurants in any of the sites, you can try using that because the quality of food doesn’t change because you order from a particular site and not other.
Yummybay provides a direct search of restaurant by name or your location which can sometime come very handy. They also throw up multiple offers in a bid to compete with their more popular counterparts.
The delivery options remain the same.
I liked their concept of classifying food items that you can order into classes – Breakfast, Restaurant Food, Home Chefs, Meat and Fish, Vegetable and Fruits, Cakes.
Though they are not an exclusive food-ordering site only. I would like to look forward to this latest entrant in ecommerce space. Their website looks promising
Right now they just have Cash on Delivery mode of payment, which acts to their disadvantage.
If you come across more such decent food delivery service site, please do let me know.
