Need Help? These Are Our Most popular Questions

How will I know if my order has been confirmed?

We want you to enjoy your takeaway. Here’s how you can check that your order has been confirmed:

1. You’ll receive an email confirmation when your restaurant has accepted your order
2. Didn’t get an email? Login to your account and check your orders page
3. If the status of your order says ‘accepted’, your order is being prepared and will be ready for collection or delivery at the time stated.

You can also check your order using our Android or iPhone APP.

My payment failed. What can I do?

Don’t worry, there are lots of reasons why a payment may fail. Before considering other options you might want to check:

1. That you’ve entered the correct expiry date
2. That you’ve entered the correct billing address. This needs to be the same address that the card is registered to.
3. That you’re using the correct card – it’s easy to pick the wrong one!

If the payment is still not going through you can either select a different card to pay with or pay cash on delivery or collection. You’ll need to select this option as you checkout.

Other FAQs

I have food allergies. What should I do?

If you have a food allergy that could be dangerous to your health, we strongly advise that you contact your chosen restaurant to discuss your options. Please contact us if you’d like to be put into contact with a restaurant using our live chat or contact us form.

We work closely with all our restaurants but they are independent businesses and are individually responsible for preparing your order. We are unable to personally check each restaurant’s policy with regards to allergies and, as a consequence, it’s important that you contact your chosen restaurant directly to check their policies and ensure that you won’t be affected by their food.
