Online restaurant and nightlife guide Zomato lands in Johannesburg


Everyone likes a good night out but it isn’t always easy heading outside the places that you frequent on a regular basis. There are ways around that in the form of nightlife guides and the latest of these to land on South African shores is Zomato.

Launched for Johannesburg earlier this month, Zomato covers more than 2000 locations in Jozi. Details on these locations is available either online or via Zomato’s mobile apps, which are available for Android, BlackBerry and iOS devices so far. The mobile app, in addition to providing user reviews, scans of various menus and details about eating establishments, also suggests locations to users based on their current location.

Zomato founder and CEO Deepinder Goyal said in a statement “We’ve been growing aggressively over the past few months, and South Africa was always on our minds. The market has great potential, with lots of restaurants, and a high internet and smartphone penetration. Moreover, it’s a vibrant country where people are passionate about food. We’ll also be launching in Cape Town soon, and look forward to South Africa becoming a key business hub for us.”

Zomato was founded in 2008 in New Delhi and now covers over 95,000 locations across 21 cities in seven countries.
