Uber can now deliver food - these are some of the restaurants to choose from


Uber has introduced its food delivery service to the UK.

UberEATS allows users to have food delivered from nearby restaurants within 30 minutes via a dedicated app and website.

And the restaurants you can hail a takeaway from in central London include The Good Life Eatery, Hotbox, Chilango, Pho, Comptoir Libanais and the frozen yoghurt cafe Snog.

The capital is the second city in Europe to have access to the app, which uses the same tracking features and cashless technology as the original Uber, to choose from the menus of an initial 150 restaurants in central London.

They then deliver the food by bicycle and scooter messengers between 11am and 11pm.

The app shows an average of around 20 participating restaurants in the immediate area, their menus and photos of meals, and users can enter any special instructions or allergy notes.


Uber has promised deliveries will be with customers within 30 minutes of placing the order or the next delivery is free up to a cost of £20 - although it's only committing to the guarantee for the first month.

The delivery fee will be between £2 and £2.50 after an initial month-long free period, and there is no minimum price of an order.

Uber said it would be expanding the delivery area and choice of restaurants over the coming weeks.

Alex Czarnecki, the general manager of UberEATS in London, said the service's point of difference was the choice of "very high-quality" restaurants on offer and the lack of a minimum spend - particularly attractive to those eating alone.

He said: "We're really excited to be launching in London, one of the food capitals of the world.

"The UberEATS app has been a huge success in every city we've launched in and we think Londoners will love it too."

Well, it seems like the app has been popular so far today... although maybe a little too popular at times.
