Thanks to the broadband revolution in Pakistan, ordering food online has become the most convenient way. It has removed the torturous ritual of explaining your order by phone, or a risk of misunderstanding by the person to whom you want to place an order.
14th Street Pizza (as far as I know) was perhaps the pioneer in providing customers an option of ordering food online. For me, it is really convenient to select all the toppings and flavor of the pizza online rather than a person telling me about all the options on the phone.
Foodpanda is the most famous online food ordering platform in Pakistan. They even offer a designated application on various smartphone platforms, leading to simplification of the whole ordering process. The company ensures that latest menus are also uploaded on their website (and the app) so that you can easily choose what you want to eat.
Foortal is another online website that offers you services similar to Foodpanda, but they do not update the menus of many restaurants periodically. Furthermore, they do not even have many restaurants on their panel compared to the reigning giant.
Urbanite is also making its name in the online food ordering websites. I found the interface of Urbanite the best compared to Food Panda and Foortal. Currently, the website has more than 100 restaurants on its panel and charges reasonable amount for delivery.
This revolution for me is very exciting. Especially since I don't really love spending my credit on ordering food and would rather just do it with a few clicks of my mouse.
However, if restaurants themselves start offering online order services, it will be more convenient for everyone. Just imagine not going through the hassle of telling someone from Subway what vegetables you want in your sub and just selecting them from an online menu! :D
So when was the last time you ordered food online? Share your experience!
