order food online

I believe some people will find this site helpful (at least I did). After you write your PLZ (zip code,postal code), you have a list of restaurants that delived in your area and you can order online.

The menus are available along with customers' ratings and ave time for delivery.

Re: order food online

I just wanted to state that I didn`t have any good experience with eat.ch.

I ordered asian food in Zurich via eat.ch. First thing is, most restaurants already have delivery service. When I ordered via eat.ch, I had to pay them an extra fee on top of the price form the restaurant (I get it, that is how they make their money, but still). And in the end they came 45 minutes later than agreed on. The food was completely cold. The delivery guy said he had picked up our food first, then had to collect some more, that is why it took him longer.
Based on this one time experience, I cannot recommend ordering with eat.ch. At least I never did it again.

Re: order food online

Just as an aside - the profit margins in gastronomy are very small in Switzerland, so unless there is a mark-up, services like eat.ch may be useful for the consumer and help a business get exposure, but they may be disadvantaged by the concept long-term. However, it will also become a necessity for them to use the platform as more and more people choose to order there rather than contact the business directly. Something to keep in mind...

Re: order food online

Eat-in, take-out, and delivery are each different concepts. Just because all is about food and eating it is still not the same. A costumer who orders something does not mean you have lost a costumer which would dine sur place.

Do make my point more clear:

Eat the food of your favorite restaurant. In your favorite formal dress.
Do it once as eat-in, take-out, and finally as delivery. What's your favorite option?

Eat the food of your favorite restaurant. In your favorite PJ.
Do it once as eat-in, take-out, and finally as delivery. What's your favorite option?

Re: order food online

I've used both eat.ch and foodarena.ch. They both work pretty much the same. Only had two bad experiences, which is about 2% of all orders. The first was whereby I ordered with about one minute to closing for the resto in question and received a confirmation that the food would be delivered around 50 hours later. The food turned up, nevertheless. Second bad experience was ordering but the resto wasn't open (in spite of eat.ch saying it was), and then the order was cancelled. No issues with the credit card refund, it just added 30 minutes to our wait (and we were already crazy starving).

Both of these sites have decent iOS apps that I've used without a hitch too.

Tips:
1. Pay with cash so if it goes wrong, you've lost nothing.
2. Pay attention to your phone and wait for the confirmation email that says the resto has received your order before getting excited.
3. Plan ahead as we've never received anything before a 40 minute wait.

Really the quality varies hugely with each resto (obviously), and the quality in my opinion hasn't really ever correlated with the review star ratings. Once you find a good resto, stick with it, basically. But now I'm stating the obvious.

Hope that all helps!

Niko
