Food writer Vir Sanghvi launches integrated restaurant platform EazyDiner

In collaboration with India’s hoteliers and restaurateurs, Vir Sanghvi, food writer and TV host has launched EazyDiner, restaurant reservation platform that offers expert reviews, recommendations, deals with every reservation, insiders’ tips and an exclusive dining concierge service.

Deepak Shahdadpuri, MD - DSG Consumer Partners, and Gulpreet Kohli, Ex MD – ChrysCapital have led the first round of funding.

Featuring over 8000 restaurants, 200 bars, and 600 critic reviews, EazyDiner is a marketplace for restaurants and a one stop shop for researching and booking over 300 selected restaurants. As per the press release, it is the only dining platform that helps a diner gets great deals and discounts with every reservation, in addition to earning points for every table booking.

Vir Sanghvi, Co-Founder, EazyDiner, said, “The restaurant revolution is here. More restaurants are opening than ever before and Indians are eating out more frequently. EazyDiner is ways of helping diners make the right choices and putting restaurants in touch with the modern Indian diner. The site contains the most up-to-date information on dining trends and our concierges are on hand to guide diners through the restaurant world. Plus, every booking through EazyDiner comes with an EazyDeal which could save diners anything from 10 per cent to 50 per cent of the total bill.  This is the only restaurant site with authority and influence." 

Deepak Shahdadpuri, MD, DSG Consumer Partners, commented, “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 behavior. EazyDiner is a platform that serves the needs of both the restaurants and diners. The company’s vision is to reduce as much friction as possible in the dining out experience from discovery, search and reservations.”

He added, “EazyDiner brings together everything a diner is looking for: curated content, top critic reviews, real time online reservations, a concierge service and a dining loyalty program. Diners love being able to get real time confirmation when booking with restaurant partners. Restaurants can now use EazyDiner’s reach and marketing to attract more guests to dine with them. EazyDiner is led by a team of very experienced hospitality professionals who understand the needs and pain points of the industry and are now leveraging technology to address them.”

EazyDiner will be launched in Mumbai on the 1st of July with complete listing details of over 7500 restaurants in addition to 500 partner restaurants with online reservations and exclusive deals. EazyDiner will roll out operations in Bangalore, Hyderabad, Pune and Chennai within this year.
