Zomato, the popular restaurant search and discovery service, has expanded further into the Middle East with the launch of its Lebanon section. Zomato covers over 3,800 restaurants in Beirut and is available on web and mobile (iOS, Android, Windows Phone, and Blackberry).
Zomato provides detailed information for over 3,800 restaurants in Beirut for anyone looking to dine out, get food delivered, or order takeaway. One can browse through restaurant information, read and write restaurant reviews, share pictures, and build a personal network of people whose opinions they trust. It also offers prospects for business owners to reach out to and engage with a highly targeted audience. Zomato’s award-winning mobile app allows users to discover restaurants around them based on their physical location, in addition to providing information for all restaurants in the city.
Deepinder Goyal, Founder and CEO of Zomato said, “We're excited to include Lebanon in our growing list of global cities. The Middle East is a very promising market for us and we plan to foray into more cities in the region over the next twelve months. Beginning today, people across Beirut can read restaurant reviews, discover places to eat at in the city and share their food journeys within their network.”
Karl Baz, Country Manager, Zomato Lebanon, said, “This is an exciting phase for us. We believe that we can disrupt restaurant discovery in Lebanon with our rich content-driven model. We believe that Zomato will change the way people look for restaurant recommendations around them, whether they're looking for the best Mezzeh or the most popular sushi joint. We're excited to bring Zomato to Lebanon and help the folks here find great places to eat. I was a big Zomato fan in Dubai and every time I visited Lebanon I couldn't find a single online resource to help me make dining or delivery choices. Well, here it is.”
