Want to order a quick, gourmet meal without much thought — then FreshMenu is available to your rescue! Available in select areas of Bangalore, Mumbai & Delhi, FreshMenu delivers delicious and healthy continental meals at reasonable prices within the hour.
How to Order from FreshMenu
The website is where I prefer to order, even though they do have apps available (Android & IOS). The website is quite nice with decadent images of food as the primary focus! It’s well-organised and unbelievable simple to use. You scroll down, see delicious pics of food and click buy now! That’s about it. You could go into the details page to learn about the meal but I don’t find it necessary.
Once you order — you are requested to input your personal details and taken to a payment link. You can request your delivery time or just let them order immediately. Superbly simple!
The Daily FreshMenu Menu & Order Timings
The menu is quite limited with no more than twenty items available at a time. It’s a daily rotating menu so you’ll see different items every day — varying from Italian & European (pastas, grilled chicken, salads, fish, etc) to Chinese (hakka noodles with chicken, rolls, etc) to American (sandwiches, burgers, sliders) and desserts (cakes, cookies).
There are no Indian meals available, which is unfortunate (there’s only so much gourmet food my Indian taste buds can have). I think some healthy rolls Indian-style would be a good addition to the menu.
You can order lunch between 12pm and 3pm and dinner between 7pm and 10.30pm. During these hours you will see a more varied menu. If you order between or before these times, you will see their ‘All Day Menu’ — basically sandwiches, burgers, salads, tapas platters and desserts. Most hot meals won’t be available during these times.
Delivery & Packaging
Delivery is incredibly fast — usually within 30 minutes. My one big complaint with FreshMenu is their delivery process. Every time I’ve ordered, the delivery boys have called repeatedly asking for instructions of where to deliver. Come on, guys… the address is given to you, why are you bugging me about it?
The packaging of the food is tasteful and quite nice. The containers seem to be very well thought out and tailored to FreshMenu. Again one complaint would be against the excessive use of plastic — not the most eco-friendly product.
FreshMenu Flavours & Food Quality
What’s great about FreshMenu that the ingredients are fresh and flavourful. The meals are usually excellently balanced — it feels like a gourmet experience rather than a packaged meal. Kudos to the chefs for the balanced flavours as well as created unusual dishes.
I have ordered the spaghetti with chicken meat balls (which was nice and peppery with a tangy tomato sauce although the meatballs were a little dry), Caesar salad (which was scrumptious — delicious lettuce leaves, olives, shredded chicken, onions and (somewhat soggy) croutons with mayo), and the Sumo Chicken Burger (not my favourite, a little too large and messy — the chicken patty again was a little to dry for my liking), and the chocolate chip cookies (large, crisp but a little too sweet for me).
It really feels like restaurant-quality food and reasonable prices delivered to your home.
The prices are somewhat expensive for regular consumption. The chicken burger, for example, costs Rs 250. The chicken Caesar salad was for Rs 150. The cookies were for Rs 80.
While the prices are very reasonable for the quality of food, it is a little too expensive for daily consumption.
However, after having tried Spoonjoy (read my review), I much, much prefer FreshMenu meals.
