The long and much-awaited day is finally here. We can’t tell you how very ‘APPY we are to present before you, for you – your very own JUST EAT app!!! Ooooh sorry, big mistake, not just one app, but THREE Apps – Android, iPhone AND Windows 8! Too much to handle all at once?? Well, we’re also overcome with emotion and just can’t contain our happiness, so here goes… Hip Hip HURRAY! Three cheers for us!
First of all, we had the pleasure of freeing you from your kitchen. We brought you to your desktops and laptops to order food online. And now we proudly move on to the next level – we free you from the tyranny of cooking plus poring over your laptops to get your food! With these apps, you get to carry JUST EAT with you in your pockets, all the time. Hungry at any time of the day?? Not to worry. Whip out your cell phone and we’re just a few seconds away!
What all you can do with your new app:
- Choose your favourite from more than 2500 restaurants. Or locate the eatery closest to you.
- Pick your favourite cuisine. We have 52+ (gulp!). Yes
- An array of greater than 2.5 lakh dishes. (We actually counted how many we had )
- Want to eat out instead of ordering in? Give your better half a surprise. Book a table online at his/her favourite fine dine.
…and there’s LOTS more. Go on, explore the apps and tell us what all you found. We would love to hear how happy (or sad – though we seriously doubt it) we’ve made you… waiting eagerly for your reviews.
Android phone users, you’d love the JUST EAT Android App we made for you. Apple users, here’s our JUST EAT iPhone App for you – we’re going to become the apple of your eye in no time at all, we’re positive about that And last but not the least, for our new Windows 8 users, the JUST EAT Windows 8 App, to make your experience even better.
Well, we’re well on our way to put a complete end to the tyranny of cooking. Thanks for supporting this noble cause of ours
And remember – Don’t Cook, JUST EAT!

Yes, we are. Very sorry for what happened yesterday. It so happened that our servers started acting funny all of a sudden. We were initially relaxed as we expected them to get back to normal in, at the most, a few seconds. But then, as fate would have it, they seemed to have temporarily lost it. And it was then that the geeks in our office were summoned to sit up and take notice.
We love serving our foodies. And it is only because of big-time foodies like you (thank you! ) that we managed to fix up the glitches soon and get back to taking your orders.
We messed up a few orders along the way – we admit it (sob! ) But we did everything we could at the moment to get our system up and running again, because we knew we just couldn’t afford to lose you.
Thank you for bearing with us. And really sorry to those we let down. We promise to take extra care in future.
Keep JUST EATing!

- A person with a high degree of skill in or knowledge of restaurants and food; (here) A restaurateur.
- A highly experienced person in the field of restaurants who has gone through the ups and downs of the restaurant business.
- Possessing special knowledge about how to take the plunge in the restaurant business as well as how to convert stumbling blocks into stepping stones.
- An expert in this.
So how have you been? We’ve recently been quite busy – the outcome of which has been our ‘Fooxpert Speaks’ section.
More than 2500 of your favourite restaurants on board, there’s JustEat for you. That adds up to 2500+ ‘Fooxperts’ as we call them (see meaning above). Yeah, yeah, we know how much all you foodies love eating but then we also know that there are those of you who dream of getting into this restaurant business and taking it on full time – after all, it’s the privilege of a select few to convert their hobby into their profession! Our new section is especially for those people (in addition to those, of course, who – like me – are plain inquisitive to know about how their favourite restaurants started!).
And so, we have chalked out a plan to catch hold of each and every ‘Fooxpert’ we can and make him narrate his restaurant story – where the idea of starting it all came from, how did he manage to begin from scratch, how does he overcome the hurdles along the way; so on and so forth. Plus some special advice in the end for budding entrepreneurs.
Here’s the first one, where we caught up with Mr Ravi from Birinz who had a little chat with us:
Chatting over Biryani – Birinz, BTM
What’s more, in the coming write-ups, you can also find out what foodies like you think about their favourite restaurants up close, while having their meals!
Who knows, we might catch you next one of these days on our regular rounds to these restaurants! Seeya there!

Basmati? Oh, yeah. We’re sure you know what it is. It’s a type of rice we generally eat. To be more specific, it is a type of long-grain Indian rice known for its delicious flavour and fragrance.
Let’s come straight to the point. It’s just that people like you have been suffering since time immemorial. Suffering a lot, day in and day out. Doing what? Cooking at home, of course! I mean, get up in the morning, and ‘Cook’. It’s not even half day and go ‘Cook’ again. And to top it all, ‘Cook’ before you go to bed as well! Don’t you have anything better to do? Cook, Cook, Cook… Phew! Totally ridiculous – this way you spend almost half your life cooking, huh! Go get yourself a life, people…
And so, here’s Mr Basmati, sent from the heavens above, to act as your saviour. He says he’s had enough what with all the people cooking all the time and spending all their day in the kitchen – and he’s out on a journey to spread the JUST EAT word. JustEat? Yep. Don’t Cook, Just Eat! Like that.
Cooking is monotonous. It makes the mind numb and makes you dumb. It dulls your senses and makes you act weirdly. How? Well, think of a prison cell where a prisoner spends most of his day. Now think of your kitchen, where you spend most of your day. Get it? That’s how cooking makes you act weird. Obviously, anyone who spends so much time cooped up in a room (‘cooking’ of all things) is weird.
Cooking involves Fire. Knives. Spices. Still wanna risk it? Well, our celebrity chef won’t let you. He’s a professional at cooking and he believes that cooking is hazardous and not for mere mortals. So there. Try it if you dare. But then don’t blame Mr Basmati if you end up ‘disaster-ed’ with a few burnt fingers or teary eyes plus an empty stomach. Because Mr Basmati has already warned you.
Here’s an end to complicated recipes, crappy knives and an absolute waste of time. It’s high time we shout it out at the top of our voices from the rooftops: Don’t Cook, JUST EAT!
