1. Dash.menu: Sample food through FIDEOS before ordering
For long, while ordering or dining out, users couldn’t really sample their food. However, entry of Dash in India’s food-tech domain disrupts that status quo. Giving a break from the traditional paper or digital menus, Dash creates bite-sized fideos, short for food-videos. It helps users ‘see’ what they are ordering, exactly how the food is prepared or how it would look. Dash, thus, takes away the dependency on a trained staff or on the ability of users to decipher a well-articulate menu. It helps restaurants and cloud kitchens to upsell while minimising the buyer’s remorse.
2. Swiggy – Easy deliveries within 40 mins
The brand promises to fill provide exclusive cuisine in under 40-minutes. Helping customers to order food from top-rated restaurants in the vicinity, Swiggly also allows them to track the order in real-time.

Swiggy has also ventured into the cloud-kitchen model, driven to provide the best experience to its customers.
3. Zomato – From ordering-in to dining-out
From ordering-in to booking a table at a restaurant, Zomato covers the full spectrum of services that a passionate foodie would need. Planning a date? Looking for bars with live-music or wish to order comfort food? Zomato will take care of it all. The home-grown brand has made its way to over 20 countries in the world, including Sri Lanka, UK, New Zealand, UAE, Qatar, and more.
4. Faasos: Scrumptious food and beverage
Faasos is a chain of restaurants and nearly 75 cloud kitchens, owning brands like Ovenstory, Behrouz Biryani, and Kettle & Eggs.
