  • 🫶🏽 Pro:
  • Orders are received within 02-03 minutes
  • Fast delivery
  • Attractive good deals and discount codes daily
  • 🤔 Cons:
  • Quite complicated app
  • Higher shipping fee

Grab food is the top-of-mind choice for Saigonese office workers to cope with the all-year-round hot weather or allow them whenever they get a little bit lazy to dine out. The service partners with a huge number of shippers, which guarantee your booking are responded in the fastest pace. There's a saying that: You can find a Grab shipper every 3 meters square from where you stand.  

Grab is for us, personally, a really good and trustworthy source to seek evaluations over the restaurant we're considering. Grab allows their user to rate and leave feedback on the dishes and the services they tried. You can just trust your gut and the app's star review system to ensure a savoring meal.

  • 📍 The service is available in 16 provinces.
  • ✔️ Locals rate:
  • 🫶🏽 Pro:
  • Intuitive interface
  • Fair shipping fee
  • Cover the most vendors, in term of quantity
  • 🤔 Cons:
  • Less deals and promotions comparing to Grab Food

The first thing I like about this Shopee Food application is that it has an intuitive interface, making it easy to find dishes, view food reviews and view order delivery routes. It also covers more than 37,000 shops in Ho Chi Minh City, relatively the most stored compared to other apps.

There is the promotion freeship within 5 km, or promotion by time frame. As a result, you can save some money from delivery fee if you know some great restaurant within 5 km from your place. It is something very different from other food delivery applications. In comparition with Grab, Now has less promotional codes for customers, but it directly reduces the price of food.

You can also book a table in a restaurant, shop essentials and groceries like medicine, fresh food, and even cosmetics.


3. Baemin – A user-friendly one

When you first experience the Baemin application, you can easily get used to its interface because of its friendliness, clearness and logical layout. Baemin's iconic image is a chubby cat riding a motorbike, wearing a helmet, looking quite cute and close. This is commendable for Baemin so that users can access the application quickly.

In addition to paying through cash, you can also use bank cards or the integrated Momo e-wallet and the payment is secure.

Plus, there are many promotions and quite high discounts, at 50 - 60% and maximum 50-80 thousand Vietnam Dong. This is obviously the best feature of Baemin compared to other apps. If you want to save money, this app should be the first choice.

Besides ordering and delivering food, the Beamin application can help you "go to the market" at Lotte Mart stores and supermarkets. This is for people who don’t want to wait in line in the cashier stall for a long time.

Importantly, you can choose from diverse dishes, which are regularly updated, from big brands to popular, food for many ages

Finally, you can save the address for the next time you order. This means that you don't have to type the address, you can make a note of the address more specifically for the shipper to deliver more easily, and reduce the seasoning like no chillies.

From my perspective, it depends on certain need, I will choose the most suitable app. For example, if I have to order food for a group of friends or for my whole family, I will prefer Now, because there is a group booking section, and it is easier for me to split the fee for each member, or when I want to try a new restaurant, I will use Now because there are many restaurants. When I eat personally, GrabFood would be the best choise because of the reasonable fee and you can also earn membership points. Personally, I will often wonder between the first 3 apps and choose when the app offers the best price.
