Group dining gets an online makeover
PLANNING a family lunch or an office dinner but simply cannot fix on a price and place? TableTime.in a new platform helps you get the best restaurant deals or crafts special meals for you. An initiative of Media Forge Business Solutions, co-founder and CEO, Hiren Doshi says that it was the daily concern that co-workers had about lunches and expense, that triggered the website. “One of the main concerns is budget. We help you pick food joints and choose how much you’d like to spend,” he tells us, adding that they have deals to suit every budget — from as low as Rs. 180 per person to indulgent fine-dining options that start at Rs. 4,000.
Deal or no deal
We love that TableTime meticulously explains how the deal will benefit you and how much you’ll be saving compared to other similar websites. Most of the deals are personalised to suit customers, and the trend is fast catching on, with restaurants who usually don’t offer any fixed price options now jumping the bandwagon.
TableTime has 100 restaurants, including Windmills Craftworks, Blimey, Biere Club and The Black Pearl on its growing list with over 200 crafted deals to offer. All you need to do is check for deals on the site and specify the group size and you’ll get confirmed reservations. For restaurant owners worried about bogus reservations, Doshi assures us that bookings are verified manually and are 100 per cent genuine. “People are welcome to send us suggestions of restaurants too as we plan on getting more options online too,” says Doshi, explaining that they hope to soon be ‘the most preferred website while planning a group meal’. A mobile app is also on the cards for them. Details: tabletime.in
