We all know the relief of having food delivered to your doorstep instead of cooking, after a long day at work. I attribute the growth of these services to the Covid pandemic when we couldn’t go to restaurants and had to have our favorite meals delivered. Their convenience is unmatched. Here is my top 9 list of food delivery apps in Nairobi.
Glovo is more than a food delivery app. It’s an on-demand courier service that buys, picks, and delivers products ordered through the app. This includes supermarket shopping or the purchase of beauty products. They have a huge number of food vendors (restaurants, fast food joints, etc) and offer some of the most affordable delivery fees.
2) Uber Eats Kenya
Uber eats Kenya is among the more popular services because of its taxi service app, Uber. Uber eats makes it easy to discover new places to eat and have them delivered to you. You can place your order and track it minute by minute till it gets to you.

Jumia Food is one of the best and most used food delivery providers in Nairobi, working with over 180 restaurants that offer all types of cuisines (fast food, Chinese food Kenyan delicacies, and more) With the huge number of riders at its disposal, you get your order in no time plus the delivery fee is fairly low.
4) Dial a Delivery
Dial a delivery is often used to deliver food from the well-known fast-food joints like Chicken Inn and Pizza Inn. It also offers delivery of liquor and other drinks through its dial-a-drink app. Dial a delivery is widely used but not in comparison to the previous3 apps.

I am a charismatic 23-year-old student at the University of Nairobi. I enjoy traveling be it planned or impromptu. I also enjoy partying. I'll be there with a drink in my cup all through the night, chasing the sun. Life's too short not to choose the fast lane. Carpe diem!
