Uber’s standalone food delivery service – UberEATS – has arrived in Mumbai. At launch, it’ll be available in Powai, Bandra East, Bandra Kurla Complex, and the west-lying regions from Lower Parel uptown to Andheri (see map below). Though there is no minimum order size, a delivery fee of Rs. 15 will be levied on each order.
At the moment, UberEATS is limited neighbourhoods in Worli, Juhu, Bandra West, and Powai and more areas are expected soon. Unlike Swiggy and Zomato, UberEATS allows a user to schedule an order in advance. The company mentioned that it has currently partnered with 200 restaurants in Mumbai. Note that in January, Uber was taking user input by asking them to list their favourite restaurants in their city, other than independently getting restaurants and cab drivers onboard. It is also aggregating services from existing kitchen players like Holachef, InnerChef and Fresh Menu.
UberEATS is currently available in 78 cities and includes Amsterdam, Brussels, Dubai, Hong Kong, Johannesburg, London, Lyon, Singapore, Stockholm, Taipei, Tokyo, Milan, Paris, Vienna, and multiple cities in the US, Australia, Canada, and Mexico.
Initial restaurant partners in Mumbai include The Bohri Kitchen, Nom Nom, The Bombay Canteen, The Good Wife, Fresh Menu and Le 15, along with global brands such as Krispy Kreme and Chilli’s. Orders can be placed 24×7, depending on whether restaurants are operating and accepting orders. Uber has also tied up with Paytm for cashless payments. Users in Mumbai can start using the service now by downloading the app or visiting ubereats.com.
