Bing partners with Zomato to integrate restaurant information in search results
Bing has partnered with Zomato to offer restaurant search and reviews in a seamless fashion. The integration offers a mix of features including real time reviews, ratings, directions, travel time, and other details that appear right from the search results. Founded in 2008, Zomato is a restaurant search and discovery service that currently operates in 23 countries.
While searching for a restaurant, users can now see three latest ratings and reviews from the food providers directly on Bing with a link to quickly access all reviews. You can check the images of dishes in the menu and the restaurant ambience/indoor images to decide for a place.
Bing also helps users with the phone number, hours the restaurant is open, as well as the address and directions from their place to contact or get to the restaurant of their choice. There’s also a menu option that can help users save time by deciding the items that they plan to devour beforehand during their visit to a restaurant.
For the restaurants that have partnered with Zomato, users can book a table in advance or order food online from Bing and get it delivered at their doorstep.
