An Easier Way to Order Takeaway PLUS a Giveaway!

Just when you thought ordering takeaway couldn't get easier, it has. 

Forget scrambling through your junk drawer for takeaway menus, or hastily throwing your couch cushions off to search for hidden change to pay the delivery guy - EatNow has made ordering takeaway easier, stress free and still just as delicious.

When EatNow asked Jesse and I if we'd like to try out their service, we couldn't say no. We'd been seeing ads for months for different online takeaway ordering services - but we'd also been a little bit wary. 

Call me a chicken, but I usually like to hear about someone else's positive experience before trying something myself. So we decided to be the Guinea Pigs.... 

On Sunday afternoon, we were just finishing putting up our Christmas lights (post coming soon!) when Jesse asked the inevitable question; "What's for dinner?
Usually I cook dinner every night, however, Jesse and the family order takeaway once or twice a month as a special treat.

I had a leftover homemade GF pizza base in the fridge so I was sorted (it's impossible to find GF takeaway near us!), so it was takeaway for dinner for the SIL family after a day of super hard work. 

So whilst we finished off the lights, I opened up the EatNow App on my iPhone and scrolled through to find a restaurant. As it was a Sunday night, some local places weren't open, however, Satay Inn Asian Restaurant was - and they delivered to our area!

We ordered Dim Sim, Spring Rolls, Fried Rice (which Katrina said was the best ever), Sweet and Sour Pork, Calamari in Chilli Salt and Pepper (which the whole family loved) and Shredded Fried Beef ($50 in total) and placed the order, paying via PayPal on the app. 

5 minutes later, I received a text confirming our order and 30 minutes later the doorbell rang and the food was here (15 minutes earlier than the estimated arrival time!) and all we had to do was bring it inside as everything had already been paid. 

The SIL Family crowned Satay Inn Asian Restaurant the best Asian food (after recent disappointments with local faves) and dinner was ordered, delivered and eaten in an hour! 

But best of all? We want to buy dinner for one of you!
