Food App ‘detectives’ head to the Gold Coast

DOZENS of ‘dining detectives’ are hitting the streets of the Gold Coast to search for the city’s best restaurants, cafes and cars.

They’ll be sourcing a swathe of data this week, including restaurants’ menus, photographs and opening hours, to be uploaded onto Zomato within the month.

Recently transitioned from Urbanspoon earlier this year, Zomato is a similar restaurant review site.


Zomato combines Urbanspoon’s user-generated content with expert content from Zomato’s own ‘feet on the street’, including curated collections such as ‘Trending this Week’, ‘Date Night’ and ‘Kickass Burgers’.

The platform also includes social features such as a personalised food journey timeline and inspiration from fellow foodies in the form of a diner’s newsfeed – meaning Gold Coast’s foodies will never be stuck for inspiration on where to eat out.

For Gold Coast’s restaurant owners, Zomato is aiming to help merchants more effectively connect with customers – and potential customers.
