There is literally an explosion of food delivery apps in the world. One gives you one advantage; the other has some other benefit. However, being humans we’ve always been on the lookout for a little more than we are already getting.
Talabat (pronounced thal-a-buth) emerged as the biggest online food ordering platform in the Middle East. With more than 4300 restaurant partners, Talabat.com literally covers every imaginable cuisine that a restaurant can offer.
Here we are trying to illuminate all the negatives and positives of the app.

Why we like Talabat?
Always an Offer available
The app will never disappoint you when it comes to offers. There is some kind of a discount or a reward always available on the application. You will find that most food delivery apps charge a premium amount for getting the food of your choice delivered to your place, but with Talabat, it’s always cheaper.
Midnight craving answered
Talabat has many restaurant partners that run 24X7. In fact, they have some fantastic night only options as well. With this app with you, you will never go hungry, even if it is the dead of the night. Party food got over? No worries! Just pick up your phone and Talabat more food!
Food for the health conscious as well
This app not only caters to the hungry snackers or fast food lovers, but also has multiple options for people who like eating healthy. Regardless of whether you are on a low carb diet, or a keto one, this app will find something for you. Not a regular healthy food eater? Well, some of the mouth watering options of the app will introduce the healthy way of life to many people.
What we don’t like about Talabat
Too many options
Although it is said that having options is a good thing, but the problem with a giant app like Talabat is that it makes choosing a very painful task. There are so many options to choose from that it can be very confusing. They have a partnership with close to 4,300 restaurants, each with its myriad of menu offerings. That’s a lot of food!
Does not support Credit Card Payments
This is by far the biggest downside of the app. People don’t always like paying by cash. Especially when the world is slowly inching its way towards a more cash less economy, thinking of a food delivery website or application that does not support card payment makes life a little difficult for its users.
The Talabat website and App are restricted to Kuwait, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, United Arab Emirates, Oman, Qatar and Jordan. That’s not enough, is it? They have been able to set up a strong hold in the Middle East; they haven’t really explored anything at all outside of that region. For a user who has been dependent on Talabat, moving to a different region might be a little unnerving because they’d be too used to the myriad of options that Talabat offers.
In closing, it wouldn’t be a far stretch to say that the app and the website is quite a reputable app with thousands of users across the Middle East. The app has developed a very loyal user base that is committed to ordering food only through them.
The User interface of the app seems to be very fluid. It glides easily and intuitively without any hassles at all. As a user this app is a box full of many offers, food options and custom home delivery at any time of the day or night.
