Zomato and Uber have teamed up to bring more users to each product and improve the users overall experience.

The partnership makes it easier for Zomato users to utilise Uber to book a car to their eatery of choice. This makes the entire dining experience ‘incredibly easy’, says Zomato.

Once a user has found a place to dine at or have drinks at using the Zomato app, they can tap on the Uber button on the restaurant page to find the nearest Uber.

In addition to seeing the estimated fare and how long it will take for the Uber to arrive, users will also be able to choose the Uber service that best suits their need.

This feature has already been rolled out in London and South Africa, and will now be rolled out to Zomato users in 27 cities in 13 countries including New Zealand.

Pankaj Chaddah, Zomato co-founder and COO, says, “We're constantly looking for ways to make every meal, for everyone, a great experience.

“This partnership makes eating out more convenient with the Zomato app connecting to Uber services seamlessly.”

Eric Alexander, Uber head of business Asia, says, “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. Through this API integration, Zomato users in 13 countries will now be able to reach those hidden gems in their cities seamlessly and in style.”
