EPICURIOUS locals and travelers in Malaysia will be delighted to know that GrabFood is set to launch in the country on May 28, 2018.

This is coming after Uber announced two months ago that Grab will be taking over Uber’s operations and assets in Southeast Asia as both ride-sharing giants will merge into one, effectively turning Grab into a ride-hailing juggernaut.

The much-anticipated food delivery service will connect consumers to over 300 of Malaysia’s kitchens, from local and Asian delights to halal and non-halal cuisine, as well as modern and traditional desserts.

Some mouthwatering Malaysian favorites include KGB (Bangsar), Makirito, La Juiceria Superfood Cafe, Humble Chef, Inside Scoop, Devi’s Corner, and more.

Need meals and snacks delivered right to your doorstep?

Get on the GrabFood app, order your grub, and pay seamlessly via GrabPay, Grab’s cashless payment method.

Also, keep in mind that operating hours depends on your area and the restaurant’s hours.

That having said, GrabFood begins delivering as early as 8am and run as late as 11pm.

Here are some things you need to know before you place your order:

  • No minimum order: From light bites to big meals, order to your heart’s desire without any minimum order requirement.
  • Food prices: The vast majority of menu prices on GrabFood will be the same as they are in-store. In some cases, menu prices on GrabFood may be higher than in-store prices.
  • Flat rate delivery service: GrabFood delivery fee is set at a flat rate of RM5 per order so you can satisfy your cravings at any time of the day.
  • Schedule orders in advance: Have a party to host? Plan and order meals up to five days in advance. On the day of the delivery, simply track the status of your order in the app. Then, kick back, relax and wait for your food to be delivered to you.
  • Get rewarded for every order: Every GrabFood order gives you GrabRewards points which can be used to redeem goodies and perks. RM1 = five GrabRewards points. Points can be used to redeem rides or any discounts from the GrabRewards catalog.

GrabFood is currently only available in Mont Kiara, Sri Hartamas, Bukit Damansara and Bangsar.

It will be serving five additional areas including Kampung Baru, Chow Kit, KL City Centre, Titiwangsa, and Setiawangsa, with more areas to follow in the coming weeks.
