Foodpanda is one of the best-known online food delivery services in Malaysia and Asia. It provides a wide range of restaurant selections on the platform for you to choose from. No matter how bad is the review from others on FoodPanda, We personally consider Foodpanda as my personal top online food delivery service. Ordering food from foodpanda is relatively simple and easy.

👉 Foodpanda apps will show the list of restaurants near your delivery address.
You can narrow down the list based on your preference such as cuisine, budget, vegetarian, halal and many more. Foodpanda accepts online payment, credit cards and even cash on delivery. The delivery charges apply according to the distance of the restaurant you order. Nowadays, they even offer PICKUP. You make your food order online and self pick up the item with a discount offer. Personally, I usually look out to use their online vouchers to set off against my order. The voucher codes differ on a monthly basis. Just keep yourself updated before place your next order.
GrabFood considers one of the best online food delivery in Malaysia. I would say GrabFood has a wider range of restaurants in their listing. Especially the big chain restaurant and even more than 10km restaurant are on the list as well. But of course with higher delivery fees. One benefit of placing the order through GrabFood is you can accumulate points. The voucher codes here are pretty much limited especially for a single person. However, if you are placing a large meal, it could be savings, here.
Personally, the writer thinks most Malaysian use these 2 food delivery. Although, there is more another medium-size online food delivery service player in the market. We couldn't verify their service. Here at cindyrina.com, we only list down services we have tried or the ones with a good reputation in the market.
Personally, only tried this delivery service during their start-up days as DahMakan. It was on a subscription basis. Instead of having the choice of the restaurant listed on the website. They have their own kitchen and meal preparation. The menu choices are kind of limited pre-fix with some selection based on your preference. The service was kind of ok and acceptable at that time. Now they have changed to Pop Meals, the menu is still on standard selection and interestingly look delicious too. The writer will try this out and update soon.
Ever since the pandemic started, not many can fly freely. Air Asia has been suiting the environment to stay afloat and survive the business. They have a venture into the food delivery business, which deserve a round applause. Personally, haven't tried their Air Asia food delivery, but have tried food delivery using the Santan food business under Air Asia wings as well. The food was alright from Santan.
The writer wants to list out other online food delivery services but couldn't do so, since no experience placing orders from them. If to list other available food delivery, there are many in the list. Some of them are top Malaysian Marketplace, Shopee which is nothing new to most Malaysian. Shopee has newly ventured into Shopee Eats. If you haven't registered with Shopee yet, please use our Shopee referral link here. You will get 25% cashback from your first purchase using the code CINDY445
