Foodies know one of the best ways to find great food in a new city is by talking to locals. The Zomato mobile app facilitates that kind of discussion online, bringing only the best restaurant suggestions. Users can define their dining parameters to find the perfect restaurant for the occasion.
Zomato is like a search engine that finds all the best local restaurants in your area. It features online complete menus, user reviews and ratings, and the app integrates with Google Maps for directions. In some countries, Zomato allows users to order food from restaurants online for delivery. The app features granular search options for restaurants, cafes, pubs, and bars. Users can search by restaurant name or type – such as Indian or Greek food.
