Zomato’s food ordering app Zomato Order extended to Mumbai & Pune

Zomato

Zomato’s food ordering app Zomato Order has now been extended to Mumbai. The company claims that the app lists around 1000 restaurants in Mumbai where users can order from. Zomato Order is currently available on Android and iOS. Interestingly, the Google Play Store page of the app mentions that the service is already available in Bangalore as well, besides Delhi-NCR and Mumbai, and also mentions that the service will be extended to Hyderabad, Pune and Kolkata very soon.

However, it seems that the service is already live in Pune. We tried placing an order from a restaurant called RushHrs in Kothrud, Pune using the Zomato Order app, and were able to add dishes and enter delivery address.

The Gurgaon-headquartered company launched Zomato Order last month. At the time, the service was only available in Delhi-NCR. Note that currently, users can only pay through cash on delivery, however the company mentioned that online payments option will be enabled on the app by next weekend.

Note that Zomato’s Pay with Cashless system was launched in Dubai, in April this year, and was expected to be launched in India at the end of the month. This online payment product allows a user to open a tab by visiting the Cashless integrated restaurant’s page on the Zomato app and tapping on “Pay with Zomato Cashless”. The bill would be settled using the user’s credit card. It’s available on both Android and iOS.

While it might seem a bit strange why Zomato launched a separate app for food ordering, the company had said that this allows them to build lightweight apps and focus on specific problems faced by users. Also, the flagship Zomato app and Zomato Order are connected. So, if you decide on a restaurant you want to order from on the Zomato app, one tap will redirect you to that restaurant’s page on the Zomato Order app.

Urbanspoon shut down: Earlier this week, Zomato shutdown the Urbanspoon site, about five months after acquiring it, and started redirecting Urbanspoon users to its own platform. The company said that this decision was taken due to the expense of maintaining two platforms at a time.
