Tapping on the app, you are introduced to the Recommendations page, which lets you discover new places to order from under relevant categories like all restaurants serving breakfast or providing express delivery or serving top cuisines; and then flaunt them to your peers.

The page comprises various collections dedicated to popular themes that lets all the users have more options to discover.
The new app also cares for your cravings. If you are looking for a specific dish, you will be able to search that too! The‘Dish Search’ will allow you to search whatever you are looking for and will list down restaurants delivering that to your doorstep. The app is going to ensure the most personalised experience than ever before. The users will be able to reorder with ease, enjoy a one tap payment process and save money through attractive discounts all in one go!
