How does the Website work ?
Ordering food from Foodpands is just four quick fast steps.
Step 1: Enter your city and location in the home page and hit the find food button. You get a whole list of restaurants with option to sort cuisines by relevance, rating, minimum order value or Delivery fee options. Pick the restaurant you like and order. The food can be ordered from 11AM to 11PM only, it’s because all the restaurants generally takes orders during this time.
Step 2 : Once you have identified the restaurant , you can now order the food you like. Browse the menu and select the items you will like to order and add to cart. Interesting part I noticed is if you try to order food before 11AM or after 11PM , the site simply refuses to take order, it says “Food Panda “ is closed.
Step 3 : Now that you have selected the menu items, hit the “Order Now” button, add your delivery address and you can decide to pay online or pay cash on delivery. The payment process is simple and standard, you can pay by Credit card, Debit card or Internet banking.
Step 4 : Now that you have placed the ordered, you should now receive an SMS confirmation. So that’s it! Just wait for the ordered to be delivered.
Once you have received the order, you can now decide to rate the restaurant and write a review in the restaurants page , so that others can know how the experience was. I liked this review system as it lets one know the overall service , quality of food and overall experience.
Do try ordering and share your experience by putting it on the comments system
