Japan’s first gourmet restaurant delivery app launches

Gourmet restaurant delivery app Food-e has launched in central Tokyo, the first digital solution of its kind in Japan.

Food-e offers food delivery service from a collection of Tokyo’s top restaurants, including Nobu Tokyo, Elio Locanda, Oak Door, Shunbou and Chinaroom. All restaurants on the delivery app are exclusive to the platform.

Food-e is also the first delivery app offering bilingual customer service to both restaurants and users in Japan.

According to the company, food will be delivered in high-quality packaging, with hot and cold items separated to ensure temperature control.

During the first phase of its launch, Food-e is only available in a 5km radius of Nishi Azabu. The company said it will roll out in other parts of Tokyo and major Japanese cities in near future.
