With the aim to make UberEATS synonymous with effortless food delivery, we want people across the country to experience the ease of ordering their favorite food at the push of a button. Whether it’s ordering a chicken roll in Gurugram, vada pav in Mumbai or dosa in Bengaluru, all consumers should have to do is fire up the UberEATS app.”

UberEATS is here to help everyone discover great food through the perfect pairing of amazing restaurant partners, our technology, and the Uber delivery network.
