It has partnered with over 12,000 restaurants across these locations.

These are the highlights:

• Main course: the Indian cuisine--in its various north and south avatars--emerged more popular than its American and Chinese competitors.

Most popular non-vegetarian main course item was chicken biryani, except in Delhi-NCR where top six dishes were dal makhani-naan, burgers, chole bhature, egg rolls, masala dosa and pav bhaji.

• Biryani capital, Hyderabad, made up for Delhi’s underwhelming response by ordering biryani even during snack time--between lunch and dinner--when orders in other cities gravitated toward street food and burgers.

• Regional cuisines held sway in their geographies and in diametrically opposite locations. For example Delhi-NCR, apart from ordering chole bhature, loved to order masala dosa.

Similarly, Chennai showed a healthy appetite for north Indian delicacies. Mumbai remained truly cosmopolitan by ordering from every cuisine, and Chinese dishes found favor mostly in Delhi-NCR and Kolkata.

• Most price-conscious city - Price-wise, Pune came out as the most price-conscious city due to its large student population. Rest of the locations did not seem to see the price as a barrier to getting good food home delivered instantly.
