Zomato, a restaurant search and discovery service, has announced a partnership with Uber, the taxi app, to enhance the experience of its users.
Zomato said it aims to bring the seamless Uber experience to its own app by enabling users to book cabs to the restaurant where they are planning to eat.
The partnership has been rolled out to Zomato users in the UK and South Africa for now and will soon get rolled out to customers in other markets where Zomato and Uber share presence.
The feature will initially be available to Zomato users in London, Johannesburg, Cape Town, and Durban, and will subsequently be rolled out to users in other key markets.
“Uber will also bring Zomato content closer to its users over the next few months, to showcase nearby restaurants when passengers arrive at their destination,” it said.
Once a user has found a place to dine at or have drinks at using the Zomato app, a single tap on the Uber button on the restaurant page will allow one to find the nearest Uber.
In addition to seeing the estimated fare and how long it will take for the Uber to arrive, one will also be able to choose the Uber service that best suits one’s need, Zomato said.
