Hi friends ,
Today i have to share a great find with you all ..”JUST EAT India” – India’s largest online food ordering portal and table reservation website !!
I enjoy cooking at home and believe that cooking at home is much a better option. But sometimes i too feel lazy / dont have time to cook / bored and tired of eating my own cooked food and crave for some change. I enjoy eating out for one more reason- it helps me in trying out different cuisines, to explore different flavors, seek new food experience and finally to recreate those dishes in my kitchen, in my style and share with you all.
But traffic jams,searching for parking,booking the table,waiting and in between many a things spoil the day. Uff ..its all such a mess!! By the time we get the table we would be so exhausted and whole enthu of eating out would have vanished.And i would be feeling – “Gosh, instead of going through all this it was better that i cooked something very simple and enjoyed at home with all ..”
I know many would be nodding reading this, as im sure its not only me who would have gone through all this.As a solution to this issue, many restaurants have now started home delivery. But then it has its own drawbacks.Search for the restaurant number and then place an order.When placing orders via telephones there is no updated menu available in front of us.You call up the restaurant during its peak hour to order your favorite dishes and on the other end you find a person who either keeps you waiting or is in a hurry to take the order and cut your call. In such a scenario,there are full chances of making and taking hasty and erroneous orders.But still somehow we have adjusted and stuck to it.
One day when i received a mail from JUST EAT offering a gift voucher to review their service, i was startled,overjoyed.What ??!! do we have online food ordering and table booking service ??!! I have been enjoying online shopping these days for all stuffs but online food ordering ,was something that i had never heard of. So before accepting to review ,i landed on their site for the first time. OMG!! It was something like Jabong , Myntra..– all brands at same place; here all restaurants at same place.I could no longer wait to try it. And WOW!!it worked like a charm.Just enjoyed eating through JUST EAT. I find the site very useful and would personally always prefer ordering through this rather than ordering food through telephone.
Below is my detailed experience with JUST EAT, how it works and what i liked most :

I really feel this concept is amazing and especially for busy city like Bangalore where people are always stuck in their office,meetings,traffic,weekend parties…Now no more worrying,just order food from where ever you are and whenever you are free – “JUST EAT …”.
Though they currently cater only to -Bangalore,Chennai,Delhi,Mumbai n Pune,but since JUST EAT is expanding and growing fast , i’m sure they will reach whole of India soon…Kudos and all the best to their team !!!
