There is hardly anyone who must have not heard of Swiggy, right? It is available on both Android and IOS and you can also order from their website. It is one of the largest food delivery and ordering platform. It has its headquarters in Banglore although it is now expanded in about 100 Indian cities and it serves about 300 plus cities in India. It was founded by Sriharsha Majety and Nandan Reddy in 2014. Ordering on this app is really simple. All you have to do is open the Swiggy app and click on the webpage ‘ Locate Me’ or enter a location. Then choose a restaurant that you want to order from, which is in your neighbourhood and select the meal of your choice. Now click checkout and enter further delivery information. Click order now and select a payment option and enter your address details. The average delivery time is 60 minutes. 

The best feature of this app is that the interface is easy to use and Swiggy provides the menu list with images by the side so it is easier to decide what to order. If you want to order from nearby restaurants, this app is great because it will get your food delivered in minutes. You can also track where your food is through this app through the GPS live tracking and they also give you the phone number of the agent so that you can make a call. You are allowed to pay by credit card or debit card or mobile wallets so you don’t need to always have cash on you. A con of this app is that Swiggy only features those restaurants in the Top 10 with whom it has an exclusive partnership and they may not be the ones that serve the best food, yet the human tendency is such that we will order from the top 10 options only. 

It has a 3.5 rating on Google play store and a 4.5 rating on apple store.

Zomato was founded in 2008 by Deepinder Goyal and Pankaj Chaddah. It provides menus of various restaurants, reviews of the restaurants by users and you can also order from the restaurants who have partnered with them. Their headquarters are in gurugram, Haryana but their service is available in 24 countries. It is available to download on Android and iOS. 

A unique feature of Zomato is that you can book a table for any restaurant through this app. You can follow your friends or foodies on the app so that you are more informed about the kind of food restaurants serve and whether it is worth it to eat at these restaurants. Zomato also allows you to pick up the food from your favourite restaurant by yourself so you can have food on the go. Zomato provides full details of the restaurants on their website like the food menu, images, phone number, direction to the restaurant and reviews. 

The pros of ordering from Zomato are that their customer service team is great and will always ensure that they make up for their mistake( when it rarely happens). There are no cons that I can think of. 

Zomato has 4.5 stars on Google play store and 4.5 on the Apple store as well. The approximate delivery time for Zomato is 38 minutes.

Users can read the menus, order and pay for food from participating restaurants and pay through the card on the app as well. The best part about using UberEats is that they give you meals at such a cheap rate that nobody can beat those prices. Also, they are constantly innovating to give their users the best experiences. They are soon going to be using drones to deliver food to their customer which is great. The con could be that sometimes you may not get everything that you order; however they are quick to make things right. 

This app has got a 4 rating on the Google store and 4.5 on the Apple store. Their average delivery time is 15 minutes.

Travelkhana is surely a unique concept. What it does it that it connects several restaurants to the Indian Rail network. It was founded by Pushpinder Singh in 2000 and its headquarters are in Jangpura, Delhi. It is available on Android and iOS. 

To order from Travelkhana you have to select a station where you want your food delivered. Choose from a variety of delicious meals and track your food in real-time from your berth and enjoy yummy meals delivered to you on time. 

The pros of ordering from this place is that the food is really fresh because of their patented technology and the passenger gets a variety of choices so that they can order food as per their liking. 

The cons are that the food arrives late sometimes and there have been cases when passengers have not got their food, which is terrible because you do not have any other options to arrange for when you are on a train. 

This app has a rating of 3.5 on google play store and 2 on apple play store.

The pros of ordering from this app is that it allows pre-orders several hours before the delivery, displays the live location of the delivery driver. The con is that it does not offer many delivery options. It has difficulty locating the user based on the type-in address as well.
