While going out and about is all well and good (check out the cheap eats we found in Sydney and Melbourne), with all the new delivery apps now it’s super easy to just stay in, get comfy on the couch, watch the latest episode of Gogglebox and get those delicious cheap eats from around your city delivered straight to your door!

So which food delivery app should you use? We’ve compared 4 of them so you can see what they all offer:

 

Menulog

Can use for pick up or delivery

Where:  All capital cities and surrounding suburbs

Delivery charge?  Depends on the restaurant, some have standard free delivery or free delivery for over a minimum order amount.

Minimum order amount?  Again dependant on the restaurant but is clearly stated when you order – often it’s around $20 – $30.

Menulog has a massive catalogue of restaurants on it (8000+) and some really useful features like ratings and reviews from other users on the restaurants, their food and their delivery experience, and a repeat ordering feature so you can just reorder your favourites quickly and easily.

They also have loyalty discounts and first-time freebies and specials, and a best price guarantee.

 

Foodora (previously Suppertime)

Can use for pick up or delivery

Where:  Sydney, Melbourne & Brisbane

Delivery charge? Yep, there’s a $5 delivery charge

Minimum order amount?  Depends on the restaurant but usually around $20

Foodora sells itself on the fact that its food partners are only the highest quality local restaurants and there are some pretty fancy names in their catalogue! They also guarantee the lowest online prices, you can track your order in real time and can even order up to 2 days in advance (if you’re a planner!)

Share rewards: They offer an invite your friends discount code which rewards you with $10 and $10 for them when they use your code for their first order on the app.

 

Deliveroo

Can use for delivery only

Where:  Sydney, Melbourne & Brisbane

Delivery charge?  Yep, there’s a $5 delivery charge

Minimum order amount?  No, but you will be charged a $4 surcharge if your order totals less than $17 in value

Deliveroo allows you to track your food in real time and have dedicated delivery bike and scooter couriers which allow them to zip through traffic and keep delivery times to usually under 30min.

They have some restaurants that are exclusive to their app only and as a bonus you can also earn Qantas Frequent Flyers points for each order by storing your frequent flyer number in the app.

Share rewards:  They offer an invite your friends discount code which rewards you with $5 and $5 for them when they use your code for their first order on the app.
