Daily: Jom Makan Malaysia with UberEATS!

Malaysians rejoice! The popular ridesharing app, Uber has recently launched another interesting idea for Malaysians. The launch in Malaysia marks another milestone for UberEATS, which is presently in 27 countries and over 100 cities globally. Shri Chakravarthy Gopalakrishnan, General Manager of UberEATS (Malaysia & Singapore) said, “We are delighted to announce that UberEATS is now live in Malaysia! At Uber, we’re always looking for ways to bring Malaysians more choices at the touch of a button. This time, we are bringing consumers, restaurant-partners, and delivery-partners together in a digital marketplace celebrating Malaysia’s great cuisine and love of food. Using the power of Uber’s technology, we are going to help Malaysians enjoy the right food they want, right now - at the touch of a button.”

With their hectic urban lifestyles, Kuala Lumpur foodies will no longer need to brave traffic, fight for parking, or line up in queues to enjoy the wide array of foods, beverages and desserts from over 200 restaurant partners available on the UberEATS app at launch. Shri said, “With UberEATS, Malaysians can now tap a button and enjoy their favourite meals with comfort and convenience. We want you to be able to eat what you want, when you want. Whether you’re at the park, exploring the city, or coordinating dinner from your desk - find what you’re craving, tap a button, and we’ll handle the rest.”

Initial restaurants on the app comprise a mix of Malaysian favourites along with other Asian and Western delights from Kuala Lumpur-based restaurant partners. Among the restaurant partners currently active on the platform are Nasi Lemak Antarabangsa, Inside Scoop, Sitka Restaurant and Mikey’s Original New York Pizza.

UberEATS will begin serving KL neighbourhoods, in the Kuala Lumpur central business district, Bangsar and Damansara Heights from 9.00am to midnight, seven days a week; with plans to grow quickly and in the near future. Payment will be made through credit and debit cards, with an initial delivery time of 35 minutes. There will be a RM5.00 delivery fee and no minimum order. Additionally, UberEATS Malaysia has worked closely with JAKIM to ensure its delivery methods address concerns over halal requirements.

UberEATS also provides another avenue for delivery partners at more times of the day. “Uber’s technology aims to make things better for all, and UberEATS is no exception. With this rollout, we are also creating flexible earning opportunities for more Malaysians who delight in connecting people with their food,” added Shri. 

We got to try some of the fine dining food which Uber EATS will be offering to its customers.
