EazyDiner Prime Review

By | November 16, 2018

Founded in 2015 by Vir Sanghvi and other top hoteliers, EazyDiner is a restaurant table reservation platform similar to Dineout & Zomato. Eazydiner is backed by the Cricketer Yuvraj Singh and he’s not only a brand ambassador but also an investor as he had invested in EazyDiner via his venture capital.

By early 2018, Eazydiner in partnership with American Express launched the premium dining program called EazyDiner Prime that comes with up to 50% discounts on the total bill and in some restaurants in addition to the discount, there are premium complimentary drinks for the entire table. The Eazydiner Prime membership is now available for public too.

Why EazyDiner Prime

I’ve been using Dineout for quite sometime as i had some credits in the Dineout Pay wallet. Now that i’ve used all of it, i’ve been searching for better offers across various dining apps. That’s when i came across Eazydiner Prime through Amex promo and was surprised to see 25% off on many restaurants even in Chennai.

Good thing is that many restaurants in SPG/Marriott hotels are included in their network too. This makes my life easier as i stay frequently at Marriott properties in recent times.

How to get?

My Experience

I recently used the Eazydiner at Aloft Chennai OMR – IT Expressway for a lunch buffet when i was on the way to Taj Fisherman’s Cove. I booked a table just for myself with Eazydiner Prime offer: 25% off on bill amount and called up the restaurant to re-confirm. They had various options in Buffet ranging from 650-1500 INR and i went with the lowest.

I had been to this property earlier for a night stay but this time it was just for lunch. It was surprising to note that they were treating me like a super premium customer. Maybe because it was due to Eazydiner Prime or maybe as i went alone? not sure!

The guys at restaurant were quite kind and a lady was trying to proactively help me with all available food options. She prepared some special pasta for me like this:

Food @ Aloft Chennai

Then comes the billing part. Looks like the restaurant manager was kinda surprised to see someone avail a deep discounted offer and he even came to my table to politely check where/how i booked it!

Anyway, the overall experience using Eazydiner was quite good and the lunch buffet too was delicious. I saved ~Rs.160 which isn’t much, but if you’re dining as a group, you could save a lot!

Offers

They run different offers ranging from 25-50% off on bill and also the 1-1 deals. Recently they were running an “eat out festival” with 50% off on the bill and a lot more.

Just to compare, if i had been to above restaurant during this period, i would have saved 50% instead of 25%. You’ll need to pay for the coupon anyway, which costs: ~Rs.100

New to Eazydiner? Download the app and use the referral code: SIDDH9511 to get Rs.500

 

Bottomline

With a recent funding (41 Crores), a significant portion of it goes to expand its presence and to improve its loyalty programme — EazyDiner Prime. You wouldn’t have missed the Eazydiner eat-out festival promos by any chance, did you?! They’re leaving no stones un-turned to capture the market share.

  • Cardexpert Rating: 4/5 

Overall, its a wonderful app with neat & clean UI and the Amex Offer to get complimentary access to Eazydiner Prime is like icing on the cake. That’s the 6th reason why you should have American Express credit card in your wallet!

    Eat out festival works without Prime membership too, btw. Most places listed under 25-30% off with Prime reservations usually offer 15-20% to non-Prime.

    Still good, but just pointing it out that a significant benefit awaits even for non-frequent users who don’t want to spend on membership.

    For me, it goes Nearbuy > Zomato Gold > EazyDiner > Dineout. Nothing beats Nearbuy currently. Prepaid deals are insane and no membership to buy. Of course, EazyDiner will win out if you compare only 5-star hotels.

    That said, it also currently free with Citi Prestige. You buy it and they give you 100% cash back.

      True, I’ve seen hell a lot of offers on Nearbuy for salon/spa but haven’t used for Dining yet.

        Hi Sid, On Other Citi Credit card 50% cashback offer is going on till 30 Nov.

        I think it also depends on city. In Gurgaon, Nearbuy has crazy offers like 2 500ml craft beers for 99. 2 pints and a starter at 129.

        BTW I’m not sure if it is common knowledge but you can mix offers from 2 apps. I do it when I redeem eat out festival coupons. I get EazyDiner discount and then use Nearbuy as payment method to get 30+30 discount on the bill.

    There’s also an ongoing promotion till 30th Nov for Citi Prestige CardMembers offering 100% Cashback on EazyDiner Prime subscription.

    Siddharth, is there any cap of any kind on the amount when availing discount on the food bill?

    Ok here is the loophole I found out in free Amex eazydiner prime membership. I have a membership rewards card which was valid for 90 days complimentary eazydiner prime membership, and I had used it some 3 mktnhs back, while that offer was still available. Now 90 days got over yesterday, and I was left as non prime and didn’t want to shell out 2500 rupees. Hence I tried to avail this 1 year offer and to my surprise it got activated. I again used my same membership rewards card, and when it asked Me card type I simply selected platinum card. And it got approved instantly and now I have 1 year free membership

    I have all the 3 but zomato gold beats hands down. I save Rs8k last weekend on my alcohol bill just because of zomato gold. One more thing easydiner prime also adevertise about getting free round of drinks in every booking, is it true. Guys if you buy swiggy super membership for 3 months costing Re120 you get to months all cities 3 months dineout gourmet passport free.

    Nearbuy becomes useful when u have small bill and u pay through its wallet as u get 40% or Rs300 back.

      In some places you do get a complimentary pour of particular drink. It will say so just like the discount % if the place offers it. It depends on country-wide promos of liquor brands. Recently it has been Dewar’s 30ml pour on a lot of places.

        Enroll for the offer through Amex link (Google it). Fill in all the details and don’t choose any card from the drop-down menu.

    You can also try gourmet passport from dineout. They have 1+1 buffet, or 1+1 food/drinks in many restaurants. You can get upto 3 free, meaning if 6 people are dining, 3 will be free with a single membership itself. This is better than zomato, but I think zomato works in more restaurants.
    Only thing is that they give 3 free per restaurant, which you can use in single visit or multiple.

    I have been using EazyDiner since years for booking so accumulated 8k EazyDiner points which I redemeed to buy Prime membership. Since then have been using this app in many Delhi/Gurgaon restaurants to get 25-50% off for myself and my friends. Feels to have deep discounts at good places. I also have Zomato Gold but it’s usage is very limited to food for 1 free dish which is cheapest also, seems Zomato should work more for better discounts.
    And as my other friends said here, it’s a news to me that Amex Plat Travel Card can also be used to get complimentary membership, hopefully will use it next year 😉
