Online restaurant search and discovery service 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.

According to the report, 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,” the companies were quoted in a
statement as saying.

Commenting on the development, Zomato Co-Founder and COO Pankaj
Chaddah told the Indian Express, “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. Users
will also be able to choose the Uber service that best suits them, says Zomato.

“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 was quoted in the report as saying.

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.

The announcement comes after Zomato’s recent acquisition of NexTable, an
online table reservation platform

based in Charlotte, North Carolina. NexTable will soon be renamed
to Zomato Book. The
NexTable team along with CEO and founder TC DeSilva will be joining the Zomato
team.

NexTable allows customers to make restaurant
reservations online in real time, and includes table management and marketing
tools for restaurants. Zomato had already announced online reservation for app
users in Dubai.
