EazyDiner, a restaurant reservation startup (similar to Zomato’s recently acquired NexTable) has raised an undisclosed amount of funding in seed round. The round was led by an undisclosed angle investor along with Deepak Shahdadpuri and Gulpreet Kohli.
EazyDiner, which was founded in 2014 by Vir Sanghvi along with other hoteliers and restaurateurs, is a dining platform that offers reviews, recommendations, insiders’ tips, dining concierge services and deals with every reservation. You can avail the services via both, an app and through phone.
It currently operates in Delhi NCR region with more than 8,000 restaurant listed on its platform, along with their respective menus. It currently allows users to reserve restaurants online from 300 restaurants in its database.
The EazyDiner mobile app is currently available only for Android platform, with an iOS launch coming soon. The startup is offering a special deal with every booking through its platform which ranges from a complimentary glass of wine or beer to complimentary appetisers, or a full main course/dessert to discount on meal or royalty points.
By the end of July, the company is planning to expand to over 7,500 restaurants with 500 partner restaurants where it will allow online reservations and exclusive deals. It will also roll out its service to Bangalore, Pune, Chennai, Hyderabad, etc. by the end of this year.
Deepak Shahdadpuri, Managing Director at DSG Consumer Partners, said,
The F&B sector in India has been relatively slow to adopt new technologies, in tandem with the change in eating habits, lifestyle trends and consumer behaviour. EazyDiner is a platform that serves the needs of both the restaurants and diners.
One of the biggest player in this market, Zomato has just acquired US-based online booking platform named NexTable and is preparing to launch restaurant reservation service in India and other markets, by the name of ZomatoBook.
Other players in the market includes WowTables, which was earlier known as GourmetItUp and has raised $3,00,000 in funding. TimesCity acquired DineOut last year, which also offered similar services.
