Info Post
Are you the one who surfs the net for hours to find restaurants located near you to order food online? If your answer is yes, you are just like me. I tend to browse for good restaurants that offers home delivery option especially when I am sick and find ways to feed my family or wanted to try something new at home apart from my homemade food. And more often I land for the Pizza since it is the only one I know that offers online food ordering easy.

Though online ordering of lifestyle goods, fashion accessories and electronics items with home delivery have grown tremendously each year with big retailers like EBay, Amazon, Flipkart, etc. there was one area that I feel has been neglected for long. It's Food. My mindset changed when I happen to stumble upon FoodPanda.in. After all, food has not been neglected and in minutes, I started browsing and ordered my first food online. It was an easy and hassle free experiment and now made a way to form a blog post.

Other features:

Restaurant Delivery and Pick up Timings
There are many food outlets in Food Panda website which offers options to pay through credit card and Net banking (see below image). You also have an option to pre-order your foods or cakes by choosing your delivery date and time. This is a lovely option when it comes to order cakes for special events and birthdays.

Another impressive feature is that some restaurants which specialises in Fast foods, wraps and Pizzas in Food Panda do allow you to select your choice of base, add-ons and toppings along with the required price needed for the same.

I really like these impressive features which makes food ordering comfy by offering different choices of restaurant available near my location and also different mode of payments. It is a boon especially for the old or the sick peoples who can't travel long just to order food. I really do hope by adding more cities in future, even people living in small cities like can enjoy food delivery to home. Food Panda also serves as an alternative option for people who look out to try new dishes, arrival for sudden guests, ordering foods for special events, get-together and parties.

Now come on friends and readers, do tell me how soon are you to order or test this online food ordering platform FoodPanda.in? What are your views on this website?

    Pathetic service once twice its same… First they say estimate time is 60 min .. But one need to be prepaired , you are not gonna get you food before 2 hrs , they addvertise saying you will get HOT food but when u receive the food it will look like its been hours that the food is out of the kitchen , Not only this it happend to me twice both the time I got a confirmation mail and msg saying my order is confirmed and after waiting for 60 min whn I call the reasturant to know where is my food , I got another surprise waiting for me …HELLO! Madem we dnt receive any order from food panda

    Amazing after waiting for more than hour we get nthong not even the cold food ..isn’t this awsum

    I told the reasturant people that how is it possible , after a confirmation msg even I got a call from food panda saying the order I have placed is not available can we replace it , and I said yes you can , and now you telling me you dnt receive the order ..GREAT !!

    Icing on the cake is ..they have option of night delivery but their customer service working hour is 11am to 11 pm so if u have placed your order like me around 10 pm and after waiting for their estimate time if you dn't get your food then dnt let your face get red and blue in anger becoz there s no way you ll get an answer from food panda as they are off duty by now .. SIMPLE

    I request people not to order food using FOOD PANDA , they give you discounts but that discount is not even worth of all this time we waste jst for waiting for that cold , sogi food or you can be at my place with not getting your food only

    SAY BIG NO NO TO FOOD PANDA
