One Stop Portal to Get Food to Your Door!

Are you hungry but feeling too lazy to cook or even to go out, but you do not speak Vietnamese or don’t want to spend hours check which of your favourite restaurants have a “working” web page? Well if this describes you, as it does me, you may be very happy to know that someone has done a lot of the hard work for you, and made the experience of ordering food online in Vietnam a very easy one.

Although I have never been too keen on take away food, I used to do so several times a week until I moved to Vietnam; here the language barrier and the lack of easy-to-understand menus/web pages nearly killed my delivery food consumption; at work, due to lack of time, we tried many times to order food over the phone. But there was always something (a lot) “lost in translation,” making ordering very frustrating. Therefore, I was delighted to discover a new excellent service, Foodpanda, that gives you access to virtually every restaurant offering delivery, allowing you to order without the need to speak to anyone!

Foodpanda is very easy to use: you select your city, your district and it provides with an extensive list of the restaurants delivering to your door. In a very simple way it also informs you of the likely delivery time, the minimum order and any delivery charges. Then you choose what you want from the menu, and voi la, it is delivered to your door! Totally fuss free, easy and quick, what else can you ask for?

Foodpanda started operating in Vietnam a year ago, and now has a network of over 800 restaurants. I am a regular of Chez Guido, which offers an extensive menu of both Asian and Western food: the variety is great, the quality and prices are good, and they always deliver fast. I have become addicted to their asparagus and crab soup which is amazing!

And, if language is not an issue for you, Foodpanda still offers the big advantage of accessing a huge selection of takeaway menus through a single portal, saving you time. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do!

Foodpanda is currently running a photo contest with a chance to win an Ipad Mini! Share your coolest and most creative photo showing love for cute pandas on your blog or website and send the blog/website link to contest@foodpanda.com.  Every participant who submits a photo will receive a 2D movie ticket as well.
