Sydney, we’ve been cooking up something new, an app that makes getting great food as easy as requesting a ride. Whether it’s acclaimed dishes from hatted restaurants such as Three Blue Ducks & Saké, or meals from your local favourites such as Fratelli Fresh & Spice Alley – your favourite restaurants are now available through UberEATS, 7 days a week.

It’s like Uber, but for food.

*Please note, your UberEATS app may be called ‘UberEATS Melbourne’ in the app store, but rest assured this is the correct app to access UberEATS in Sydney (cheeky Melbourne, trying to keep it all to themselves).

Featured restaurants include: Three Blue Ducks, Butter, On It burgers and Thievery.

“With such a beautiful cityscape, it’s no wonder Sydneysiders have a reputation for eating out. Whether it’s the local Italian on the beach, the fancy restaurant with a harbour-view, or a trendy newbie in the inner suburbs, Sydney is the ultimate foodie city.

Today we’re super excited to be bringing Sydneysiders their favourite restaurants directly to their door, with the launch of the UberEATS app in Sydney.

UberEATS will help more people access the city’s great food from top restaurants in their suburb and beyond.” – David Rohrsheim, General Manager, Uber Australia and New Zealand said in a statement

FULL RELEASE: 

Sydney’s breathtaking harbour and beautiful beaches might get all the fame and glory on postcards, but it’s often the local culinary experiences that Sydneysiders associate their favourite moments and memories with.

The family owned pizzeria you’ve been going to since you were a kid, the fancy restaurant you like to show off to visiting friends and family, or the trendy new place on the corner that’s your little ‘secret’.

With extended hours of operation from 11.00am to 10.00pm, seven days a week, Sydneysiders can download and open the UberEATS app – available oniOS and Android – to get great food, delivered quickly to their door anywhere in Sydney’s inner suburbs.
