Yandex.Food

App Store Rating: 4.8 out of 5.0

Availability: 24 cities in Russia

Unites thousands of restaurants of different typeslevel throughout Russia - from McDonald's to fashionable establishments. The application has a convenient division into types of food (burgers, sushi, healthy food, Italian cuisine, veggie for vegetarians, even shawarma is placed in a separate category), and in the list you will see only those establishments from which delivery to your address is available. At the same time, Yandex displays not only the places from which couriers deliver, but also restaurants with their own delivery. This is convenient when you need to order food from different restaurants - for example, for yourself and colleagues at work - but you don’t want to jump from site to site or make a lot of calls.

The delivery cost is indicated on the establishment's page,as well as the minimum order. If the couriers are too busy (for example, during lunch or evening), the delivery cost will be increased and the corresponding icon will appear. The system here is the same as “increased demand” in Yandex.Taxi, and this status is temporary. Sometimes it is enough to wait 5 minutes for the delivery cost to become normal.

A convenient feature of this application is the ability tomap to track what stage your order is at and where the courier is located. You also receive notifications at every stage: the order has been accepted and it has been transferred to the kitchen > The kitchen has started working on the order > the order is ready and handed over to the courier > the courier arrived at the place.

Chibbis

App Store Rating: 4.8 out of 5.0

Availability: 51 cities in Russia

This service is interesting because, despiteAn extensive map of available cities, it is not presented in Moscow and St. Petersburg and focuses on regions. This is the philosophy of the creators of the service, and in the near future the situation is unlikely to change. Ordering can be made both in the app and on the Chibbis website.

Popular fast food chains like the sameMcDonald's is not here, but there are many local non-network sushi shops and cafes. There is a system of bonuses: free food can be obtained for points (given for registering and writing reviews, as well as charged for each order).

Delivery Club

App Store Rating: 4.8 out of 5.0

Availability: 63 cities in Russia

The functionality of the application is similar to Yandex.In food, although, let’s be honest, the design of Delivery is inferior to the colorful visualization of Yandex. But this is more than compensated for by the fact that Delivery covers twice as many cities. You can order any food here: from boxes of healthy food selected by nutritionists like GrowFood to chicken from KFC or burgers from McDonald's. However, for the last two fast food restaurants, delivery areas are quite limited - this is partly due to the fact that Delivery began testing delivery from McDonald's only in January of this year.

There is a search by names of dishes (as opposed tosame as Yandex, where you have to scroll through the entire menu to find the right dish). Promotions are listed in a separate tab. In addition, one of the important features of the Delivery Club is “food for points.” For each order you receive points, which can then be exchanged for free food. A limited range of dishes and not all restaurants participate in the promotion; you can find such dishes, again, through the search (checkbox “Food for points”).

ZakaZaka

App Store Rating: 4.9 out of 5.0

Availability: 82 cities in Russia

Although ZakaZaka and Delivery Group have the same owner(Mail.Ru Group), these food delivery services continue to operate separately, so do not be surprised that there is a Delivery logo on the loading screen in ZakaZaka. This delivery is presented in a huge number of cities and has an impressive catalog. Objectively speaking, the catalog here is even too large: such a number of restaurants with unknown names are not in any of the presented applications. On the one hand, there is a large selection – this is a plus and business support, but on the other hand – sometimes you want to choose from trusted places, and not scroll through dozens of nonames.

Important advantage:ZakaZaka works not only with restaurants, but also with shops, markets and confectionery shops. Thus, delivery can be ordered from the fish shop “Your People”, Danilovsky Market, “Syroedova”, Pizzateka, “Taiga Shop”, etc. In Moscow and St. Petersburg, the choice in this category is significantly higher than in the regions, but there are offers outside MKAD and Ring Road.

In addition, in ZakaZaka you can see the menu eventhose cafes that are now closed. This allows, for example, even at night to decide what you will order in the morning to work. As in the Delivery Club, users are rewarded with points, which can then be exchanged for food.
