    Food Panda can be better if their search engine works. right now, of you want to order food, you will have to go through all the restaurants one by one to find your choice. or when you want to search for a particular dish, the search engine doesn’t return any results. whether you search for restaurants or dishes, the search engine will always give you the very annoying default return..”That is not on the menu yet.” GRRRRR!!! food panda!!!

    McDonald’s in Foodpanda has 50% discount as long as you order at least 350 pesos. But Foodpanda didn’t honor it, said that McDonals doesnt have that promo, I presented them with screenshots as evidence but received by dumb CSRs. If you are using Foodpanda and going to avail a promo, have a screen recorder app so they can’t deny the evidence.
