Online restaurant guide Zomato and taxi hailing app Uber have entered into a partnership to enable users book cabs to the restaurant they are planning to eat at.
Zomato will bring the Uber experience to the Zomato app, enabling users to book cabs to the restaurant they are planning to eat at, the two companies said in a statement.
The feature has been made available to Zomato users in London and South Africa, and will now be rolled out to users in other key markets.
“This partnership has been rolled out to Zomato users in 27 cities across 13 countries – India, Australia, Canada, the United Kingdom, South Africa, Indonesia, New Zealand, the Philippines, Portugal, Qatar, Turkey, UAE and the United States,” it added.
Commenting on the development, Zomato Co-Founder and COO Pankaj Chaddah said: “This partnership makes eating out more convenient with the Zomato app connecting to Uber services seamlessly.”
Once a user has found a place to dine at or have drinks at using the Zomato app, a tap on the Uber button on the restaurant page will allow one to find the nearest Uber cab.
“We are delighted to be expanding the scope of our partnership with Zomato. Across six continents, Uber allows riders to connect with their cities in new ways,” Uber Head of Business – Asia, Eric Alexander said.
Zomato is a restaurant search and discovery app, providing in-depth information for over 1 million restaurants across 22 countries. Uber is currently present in over 300 cities in 56 countries.
