Amazon Prime Members in London Can Now Get Food Delivered Straight to Their Door
Options range from Michelin-starred restaurants to lunchtime favorites.
Amazon Prime members in select London postcodes will now be able to access the company’s restaurant delivery service.
Through the Prime Now app, Amazon will offer customers the ability to browse through participating restaurants, look at menus, place orders, and track the status of their delivery in real time.
Restaurants available for the service cover a wide range, from Michelin-starred restaurants like Benares to lunchtime favorites like Pod and Tossed.
Amazon is promising transparent pricing on its items, meaning customers can expect “no menu markups or hidden service fees,” according to a statement on Wednesday.
“Home delivery is something we have long considered, but haven’t been confident that the food would arrive in the best conditions,” said Daniel Creedon, the head chef and manager or Archipelago, in a statement.
Amazon started its restaurant delivery service in Seattle, Washington, in 2015 and has expanded to several U.S. cities including Miami, Baltimore, Portland, Dallas, San Francisco, and Los Angeles.
Customers can expect deliveries within an hour of the order being placed, with the average delivery time taking less than 45 minutes, according to Amazon.
