Hello Internet! DJRomanJ here! Today we explore one of the few delivery services in Vancouver called Foodsters.ca. Foodsters will pick up and deliver any order from any restaurant in Vancouver and drop it off at your location for the price of $10 plus the cost of food.
This means you can order from any restaurant that does not deliver, and have it delivered to your doorstep. This opens the opportunity to enjoy restaurant menus that were only exclusively to, pick up or dine-in only, now at home. This Food Service allows us to have restaurants such as Phnom Penh, Kimura, Sushi Yama, JapaDog, etc, all delivered!
This past weekend I tried Foodsters Urban Delivery for the first time. I made an order for Banana Leaf at 1030pm on the Foodsters website. Foodsters pre-authorizes your credit card. Foodsters sends an email confirming or denying your order. I would prefer a phone call, because my order was denied; Banana Leaf already had last call. I didn’t realize my order was denied until I checked my email 10 minutes later. Foodsters notified me via email and via twitter and I placed another order. For my second attempt I made an order for Sushi Yama at 1045pm. In about 30-40 minutes, I received a call from a Foodster employee stating that they were outside of the house with my order.
Overall, I would say the delivery service was good. I was hesitant to order food online for the first time but Foodsters delivered, literally. I was able to receive my order in a timely matter. I would probably use their services again. If you’re ordering outside of the Vancouver Area, delivery will cost more, 20$. For example, if Foodster has to drive to Burnaby to delivery your order, Foodster charges 20$ instead of 10$ for delivery, it’s better to have a large order with a group of people if you live outside of the Vancouver Area.
