|You can order food online from over 750 restaurants using Foodpanda.pk|
I just love the convenience of ordering things online. Pakistan is a little behind the times when it comes to ecommerce but all that is changing. Not every business is geared to managing online orders, which is why it’s great when service providers like Foodpanda set up shop here in Pakistan.

Foodpanda.pk is a food ordering service that lets you order from over 700 restaurants in Pakistan. It’s an egalitarian outfit that delivers from all sorts of outlets – you can order from restaurants as diverse as Biryani Centre, Waheed Kebab House, KFC and Café Flo.
Checkout is easy too – quite a few restaurants accept online Visa payments but all accept cash on delivery. Unless you’re paying by card, the only thing you have to plug in is your address and that’s it. You can create an account after you first order so you don’t even have to type in your details every time. They even have a app, which you can download from iTunes or Google Play, which makes the process even easier.
|Foodpanda regularly hosts great deals|
So far Karachi has been treated to some brilliant deals – with as much as 50% off at places like Hoagies and Dominos. The trouble is that deals tend to be massively oversubscribed and restaurants frequently cannot cope with the scale of orders that a Foodpanda deal rakes in. If you order early on during a deal you should be fine but leave it too late and you could face delays and mixups. When there’s no special deal clogging up the system, it all works pretty smoothly.

As a foodie, it’s great to have such a huge range of cuisines at your fingertips. Of course, many things are best eaten at the venue, straight from the chefs hands so-to-speak. However, if you’re going to order takeout, nothing beats the convenience and variety offered by a service like Foodpanda.
