This also includes specific tastes of users such as dietary restrictions and specializations. It must also show a large number of options for both cost-effective and high-end restaurants.

Great information

Users not only choose restaurants based on their past experiences but try out new ones through the information provided in the food delivery app. Any great food delivery app needs to provide extensive amounts of information related to the restaurants, the dishes and even the ratings and reviews left by customers.

Easy customization

Users should also be able to easily customize their orders through the food delivery app. Not everyone will accept the dish as it. It also applies to the sizes of the portions and the number of accompaniments that the user requires. The food delivery app needs to make space for easy customization for the convenience of the user.

Push notifications

Push notifications are another feature that food delivery apps need to have. Through push notifications, the user will understand when their order has been confirmed, when it has been picked up by the delivery courier and when it is on the way without opening the app time and again.

Food reviewers and bloggers are not the only ones who like leaving reviews for restaurants. Users require this feature to be present in food delivery apps as they often check out new restaurants and dishes based on the reviews left by other customers. Food delivery apps need to make provisions for users to be able to rate the restaurant as well as the delivery.

Good customer support

When we physically eat in a restaurant, it is always easy to request modifications, ask to speak to the manager and even send back the food. However, while ordering food at home, this may not be possible. For this, every food delivery app needs to have a great customer support team who are ready to take on requests and complaints at all points of the day.
