Since we moved to the UK we have discovered the joys of takeaways. In the days of the fast-moving world takeaways help you save time and enjoy a delicious meal without much effort. Britain is the country of takeaways, everybody loves takeaways here – starting with most popular (relatively local) meals such as kebabs, fish & chips, burgers and pizzas and going all in for Indian or Chinese.
Ordering takeaway over the phone
Since this is the service of increasing popularity you have probably noticed by now that the variety is pretty incredible. Meals can come from East such as Bangladeshi, Nepalese, Pakistani, Japanese, Turkish, Thai as well as from West – American, Mexican, Jamaican, etc. What I personally hate is deciding on takeaway. And what usually happens I go either for the one that I always do, or for the one which menu is on my coffee table. Since if I want to order over the phone, I have to actually know who to call and therefore I either have to google for phone numbers or have that freaking menu. And if I google for phone number I still have to freakin’ have the menu!
Here is a solution and its benefits:
- No more hassle with the menus all around your house
- No more hassle on finding local takeaways
- No more hassle with cash (unless you prefer)
- And lots lots lots lots of choice
- Estimated delivery time
Ordering takeaway over the Internet
So we introduce the online ordering of takeaways! This is now the only way how we order our takeaways and this is the best with all of the above benefits.
Probably the majority you have now tried Domino’s Pizza but have tried ordering it online? Well for me personally it is much more convenient rather than trying to explain over the phone what a party of 6 wants or doesn’t want on each of their pizzas or trying to remember who wants what side. Usually after the delivery is made you discover something’s missing or you have extra. So Domino’s Pizza were more or less the first ones who re-invented the way to order takeaways. And their website is amazing! You can choose all of your meals and even apply the discount codes if you are lucky to find some on the internet or on paper brochures.
So following this idea the major takeaways websites have recently launched. In fact that’s a lie. They have not launched just recently. They actually existed for a long time but they finally made enough money to advertise themselves on TV and so. Here are our two favourites:
We cannot really decide which one we like more as they have very similar principle, however, the offer of the takeaways is a little bit bigger on Just-eat.co.uk, whilst Hungryhouse.co.uk offers some different takeaways. So basically you need to check out both before you order.
The best feature of these is that you can rate the takeaways and then, for example, if you are new to the area or new to the cuisine you are trying out, you can sort them in an order of customer rating what makes your choice much more reliable.
And some extra websites that we found on google (I love how obvious website names are):
- 5pm.co.uk – they do 10% off your first order
- eatitnow.co.uk – only specialise in Pizza, Chinese & Indian food
- fillmybelly.com – no extra charge for using your credit card
Our favourite is still Chinese! Especially, Cantonese style Sweet & Sour dishes.
We hope you will enjoy your weekend takeaway treats even more with this convenient way of ordering them! Enjoy your meals!
