Zomato launches Collections & groups restaurants into themes

The clever folks over at Zomato have added a new fun feature to their restaurant app. You can now search for reviews and spots to eat that suit the scene you’re planning to set.

Want to find the most romantic restaurants in Johannesburg? Or possibly looking for the ideal location to have cocktails with the girls? Zomato now offers you the option to search groupings and categories that do just that. Restaurants are categorised into the type of scene they’d suit and you can narrow down your search for the perfect place to eat. Some of the collections include Late Nighters, PetFriendly and Romantic Dining.

Added to that, Collections will also let you browse popular themes specific to the city you’re in – so think ‘Gastropubs’ in London or ‘Beach Bars’ in Lisbon. What a great way to eat and discover a new city!

“Having added a social layer to restaurant discovery, we wanted to go a step further and provide information that foodies want, but may not necessarily want to search for. With Collections, we’ve turned popular theme­ based searches into bite ­sized lists of restaurants that address specific use-cases. In addition to the search aspect of Zomato, Collections opens up a whole new world from the discover point of view” ~ Deepinder Goyal, Founder and CEO, Zomato.

We’d like to propose a “they have free WiFi” category be added!
