2. Deliveroo

Deliveroo is very similar to Postmates. Ordering that comfort food, health food or local favourite is easy thanks to Deliveroo’s extensive range of restaurants with food being delivered to your door in around 30 minutes. Expect longer from premium restaurants, but that is to be expected. The Deliveroo app tracks the rider in real-time, and if your meal includes alcohol, they can deliver that too. There are even catering options for work functions. You’ll earn 1000 Qantas Points for your first-ever Deliveroo order. Once you’ve ordered four or more times in a calendar month, you’ll receive an additional 200 Qantas Points.

3. Uber Eats

Ride-sharing app turned delivery service Uber Eats will help you find the local flavours you crave and deliver to your door with “uber speed.” Their words, not mine. Browse local restaurants and fast food favourites or go directly to what you want by searching names, dishes or cuisine. You can pay for food via your Uber account, and track the rider every step of the way. You better believe Uber Eats can deliver alcohol with meals.

Wishful Thinking

Below is a list of popular food delivery services overseas that are not yet available in Australia:


Postmates is an American exclusive food delivery app that deserves a place way in Sydney and Melbourne. This ingenious app has the largest on-demand network in the industry. Beyond food, Postmates can deliver groceries and alcohol for your next house party. Our favourite trait of Postmates and something we would like the local food delivery brands to adopt is the subscription plan. With Postmates, you pay around $8 USD per month and receive unlimited deliveries at no extra cost.
