Uber Eats, the food delivery app by ride-sharing company Uber, is now available in Dhaka. Connecting people to the food they love, Uber Eats is an on-demand food delivery app that helps bring food to customers in a convenient and reliable manner from restaurants in their neighbourhood. With over 150 restaurant partners on board in the launch phase, foodies in Dhaka will be able to order food from their favorite restaurants such as Sushi Samurai, Pizza Guy, 

Cheez, Tehari Avenue, Salam’s Kitchen, Sultan’s Dine, Madchef and Chillox and many more at the click of a button, within the comfort of their home. In the launch phase, Uber Eats will be available for consumers across key neighbourhoods in the city such as Gulshan, Banani and Baridhara. “The introduction of Uber Eats in Dhaka is a major step towards Uber’s commitment to Bangladesh. With the technology that Uber is known for, we aim to create a marketplace that is bringing value to our consumers, restaurant partners and delivery partners.

 For consumers it is the ease of ordering their favourite food with just a few taps. For restaurant partners Uber Eats not only gets their food across to consumers but also empowers them with actionable data and insights to improve business efficiency. We are excited about the potential Bangladesh holds and look forward to a successful innings here,” said Bhavik Rathod - Head of Uber Eats India & South Asia.

“Everyone in Dhaka city is enthusiastic about food and it is what binds people together. With the coming of Uber Eats in the city, we are confident that businesses like ours will surface beyond physical boundaries and achieve higher efficiencies. We are confident that our dishes will be delivered at Uber speed to consumers. We look forward to a great partnership with Uber Eats,” said Labib Tarafdar, Partner of Madchef & Cheez.

The Uber Eats app is separate to the Uber app that people use to request a ride. The app has been built specifically to make food delivery as seamless as possible, at the tap of a button.
