foodpanda Comes To Brunei!

One thing I hate to do the most is to talk on the phone. I dislike calling restaurants to make reservation or to order food for delivery but it seems like it’s the one and only thing everyone around me loves making me do!

So I usually fancy restaurants that provides online ordering system.

And as if my wish has been granted –Β  foodpanda is now in Brunei! I am sure you have seen a lot of the adverts on Facebook right?

Now what exactly is foodpanda?

foodpanda is an online food delivery portal. It operates in over 41 countries, including 15 countries in Asia. We collaborate with restaurants and bring their food to your home as per your order. The recent addition is of course Brunei and we are overjoyed that within a month we have been able to collaborate with big restaurant chains like KFC, Kenny Rogers, Burger King, Swensen’s, Papparich, Fish & Co. and lots of others. Our service is available in Bandar Seri Begawan and in the near future we will definitely be focusing on spreading the service to more cities and more areas.

The downside is that the locations are still limited BUT don’t worry, since they have just recently launched their service in Brunei, they will slowly spread their wings to more locations (my area, please!)

As for now, their service is available at the following locations: Bandar, Batu Bersurat, Berakas, Berangan, Beribi, Gadong, Kianggeh, Kiarong, Kiulap, Mata-Mata, Menglait, Rimba, Serusop, Telanai, Tumasek and Tungku.

Now, how do you use their service?

Open foodpanda Brunei’s website which is http://www.foodpanda.com.bn . Enter City and Area (eg Bandar Seri Begawan – Rimba) and then click “Find food now!” You will then be directed to a page containing a list of restaurants that deliver to your area. Pick the one you prefer and the available information related to the restaurant will be shown – for example the delivery fee, delivery time, min delivery price, menu, reviews and other information. Pick the dishes you want to order and then click on “Proceed to checkout”. Enter the details and click on “Place order now” and then wa-la! You are done. All you need to do is wait for the deliveryman and pay cash on delivery! Easy-peasy.
No more “No! You call them! No! I don’t want to!” (Or is that just me……….. lol!)

What? You’re not on your laptop but you are grumpy and hungry and you can’t even be bothered to get your laptop?

Yay to mobile apps! Yay! Do you know that foodpanda is available on Google Play, App Store and Windows Phone Store! The app works just like the website. It is definitely fool-proof and easy to use (isn’t that the whole point of their motto? Easy, fast, convenient.)

Pick your country, city and location and click Show Restaurants (or you can Log In or Create Account first. Although you can do so before you checkout). The rest of the steps are as show on the images below πŸ˜€

But remember, each restaurants have their minimum order (eg $15 above) and most of them provides free delivery. All you gotta do is check the details of the restaurant you wish to order from.

Now that I think about it… ordering food to be delivered to my Uni is even better! Especially when we are cramped with tons of assignments and going out just to get food is a hassle sometimes (so we usually end up just munching on snacks instead of proper meal 😦 )

Thank you foodpanda! Another problem of mine is solved – that makes it two problems. Or three. First, no more calling. Second, yay to delivery to school. Third, you don’t even have to go out – except to meet the delivery man.
