Stepping up the food delivery game.
Prepare to get fatter, Bangkokians: UberEats has finally arrived here.
Launched in 2014, this app by the American ride sharing service Uber delivers food straight to your door.
UberEats is now in 57 cities around the world, with Bangkok being the fifth in Asia following Singapore, Tokyo, Hong Kong and Taipei.
Launched today, the app covers more than 100 restaurants in Bangkok, from comforting street-food places like Hai Som Tam Convent and Bundit Kim Kao Mun Gai to foodie favorites like Appia, Daniel Thaiger and Ippudo.
The app highlights nearby restaurants that can provide delivery in under 30 minutes and gives you real-time updates about your order.
For now, they only deliver to Sathorn, Silom, Pathumwan, Phloen Chit, Nana, Asoke, Phrom Phong, Thonglor, Ekkamai and China Town, from 10am-10pm.
Delivery is free (for now), and you can only pay for your order with credit or debit card. UberEats is available on iOS and Android, see www.ubereats.com/bangkok.
What does this mean for Bangkok’s other food delivery services? We can only think more competition is a good thing.
