MAD Orders (Mad Bites) – ordering food late night in Mumbai
Was having a conversation with a friend on GTalk when the subject of ordering food at night came up. She stays with friends in Bombay and finds it a pain to order food when staying back late in office, or even at home sometimes, as most food outlets shut shop by 11pm.
Came across this new venture called MAD Orders (now known as Mad Bites). Started by a team of IT professionals from an office in Ghatkopar(E), they promise to deliver piping hot food to you between 11pm and 7am the next day. The modus operandi is simple. You register on their site or call them on +91 8080204041 to place your order.
The menu seems pretty decent at first glance and it has both veg and non-veg food comprising of Pav Bhaji, Burgers, Pizzas, Sandwiches, Soft drinks and Desserts. The food in the pictures above definitely looks yummy 🙂
They’ve mentioned corporate incentives on their site, but it isn’t immediately clear how these will be doled out. Nowadays many companies have in-house canteens, especially those that have employees working from 11pm to 7am, often called the graveyard shift. The canteen is on the premises and quickly accessible, though quality depends on the caterer and varies from company to company. It remains to be seen whether MAD Orders can successfully wean away employees from their canteens.
On the residential front, they don’t yet deliver to all locations but that should be sorted out once they ramp up and roll out services across the entire city.
Let’s see how they fare – if you’ve already experienced their food and service, do share your thoughts in the comments.
