“We deliver food in more than 1,000 cities across India. In addition to the food and climate, every region and city has its own unique dialect and language that changes as we move across different parts. People speak in different dialects – ones they’ve grown up with and feel most comfortable interacting with.” the company said.

Zomato wants to offer this personal touch to the Zomato app, so it’s more relatable for our customers, it added. The platform said it aims to continuously work on improving the quality of its regional apps to make them more accurate and contextual.
