I woke up with a sudden craving for Indian food this morning. Yes, this morning. It was quickly followed by a craving for pizza but the Indian food craving won. I know a good Indian restaurant within walking distance from where I live but it’s a bit pricey and I really didn’t want to pay an arm and a leg for a meal.
I’ve seen Uber Eats advertise lots of interesting dishes before so I looked into it and was lucky to find a Butter Chicken Wrap. I dove right into the experience and took them for my very first test drive.
I rated each element of the entire experience with emojis to have some fun with this. My (somewhat) sincere apologies go out in advance to vegetarians, people who love chickens (as pets), and those who suffer from Alektorophobia for the poultry themed rating scale used in the writing of this post.
I was able to select from a curated menu from a number of different restaurants in the area. It really was as easy as ordering an Uber ride. I was lucky to find a Butter Chicken Wrap which was exactly what I was craving! In less than a few minutes I had lunch coming my way!
ACCURACY OF ETA
Have you ever noticed that sometimes the Uber App tells you your ride is going to be there for you in 5 minutes…for like 15 minutes!? Well, I was curious if this would happen here and it did but not by much. I checked out at 11:34 AM, at which time the ETA was ~11 minutes. The food was ready in my hands at 11:48 AM so it was only late by a few minutes. A perfect rating would have been given had they delivered on time or less.
Indian food always makes feel all warm and fuzzy inside, but that’s not what I was rating here. I wanted to see if the food would be hot, or at least very warm, and it was! The driver even warned me the container was warm so I was very happy! They get five big, fat, juicy chickens for this!
NAPKINS, UTENSILS, ETC.
Big fail here guys. Now, it was a chicken wrap which means I could have technically eaten the thing with my hands with the need for utensils, but the fact that they didn’t bother to include a fork and knife or even napkins is pretty thoughtless. This may be a restaurant fail rather than an Uber Eats fail so I’m gonna go neutral here with only three chickens and a poultry leg.
Although I could have easily eaten two orders of this stuff, I must say that I was quite happy with the portion. I could have maybe used a bit more filling (potatoes and chicken) but I can say that about any meal I really like.
Nothing short of incredible! The quality of the food was awesome! I gobbled it up in no time! They get high chicken emoji marks here and I threw in an extra turkey emoji for the restaurant that deserves the praise here, which is Glory of India in Parkdale.
The whole thing cost me $10.17 CDN, which is pretty reasonable considering all of the above. I will definitely keep a lookout next time Uber Eats offers this meal.
I am quite pleased with the whole experience and will definitely use Uber Eats again. This is a welcomed addition to my take out roster
Have you ordered using Uber Eats yet? Do you have any complaints or feedback about the service?
