Zomato restaurant finder app gives you restaurant recommendations around you and lets you look at menus, pictures, contact info, and directions for 120,000 restaurants in 35 cities across 11 countries. The app allows you to check ratings and reviews of restaurants in your city which you can search for by location, cuisine, or name.
The app just updated to version 3, and has a completely refreshed design which as the changelog suggests… ‘will make the last one look like 1990's’. While it has always been a frequently used app for me (I’m in the ‘live to eat’ side of the fence), it is easily one of the best apps on my list now.
With the update, Zomato claims that the location-detection is faster and more reliable, allowing the app to provide one-tap access to restaurants near you, sorted by distance.
Apart from the neat, fluid design, the app also introduces several new features. The popular mood-based recommendation is now available within the app. The app introduces Dish Searches which allows you to search for the dish you prefer among 3 million dishes being served, and the app would recommend relevant restaurants.
Zomato now also intends to be a ‘Foodspotting’ app, and allows you to upload pictures from restaurants to share with the world, a nifty feature for those who don’t have the patience or inclination to write reviews.
The app can be downloaded for free on Windows Phone 7.x and Windows Phone 8 from the Windows Phone Store. If you eat out or order in often, download the app, and pin it to your Start screen!
