We compare popular food delivery service apps including Uber Eats, Deliveroo and Menulog, to find out which ones are easiest to use and the kind of meals they have on offer. 

This assessment is a bit different to most of our research, due to the nature of investigating software and apps. Programs like these are always changing, thanks to constant software updates from the developers. Therefore, our results should be viewed as a guide.

  • Our buying guide outlines how these services work and considers whether they're reputable or not.
  • How we test explains our rigorous review methods. We look at these services through the same eyes as a typical Australian ordering a meal via an app.

We look at:

  • Ease of use when setting up the app, creating an account and ordering a meal.
  • Tools and features that the app provides after ordering (such as delivery tracking).
  • Information that the app provides about the food outlet and menu.
  • The number of available food outlets.
  • Special dietary options such as vegetarian, gluten free and Halal.

We've reviewed food delivery services because we understand that many people will use them. We feel that it's important to inform you of the advantages and disadvantages of using each app and the overall experience. However, we will not recommend any of these services due to the alleged ethical and legal issues.
