Deliveroo launched in the UAE in November 2015 and has partnered with some of the UAE’s best-loved restaurants to bring great food straight to people’s front doors.
We currently operate in Dubai, Abu Dhabi, Sharjah, North Sharjah, Al-Ain and Ajman.
Deliveroo launched Editions, a delivery-only kitchen concept, in 2017, making it possible for restaurants to reach customers in areas beyond their current range of access. With four locations across the city, Editions is supporting restaurants in serving new and existing customers. Our fourth site located in Hessa Street is the largest Editions site globally.
Globally Deliveroo works with over 140,000 best-loved restaurants and takeaways, as well as over 100,000 riders to provide the best food delivery experience in the world. Deliveroo is headquartered in London, with around 2,000 employees in offices around the globe.
Deliveroo operates in nearly 800 towns and cities across 11 markets, including Australia, Belgium, France, Hong Kong, Italy, Ireland, Netherlands, Singapore,United Arab Emirates, Kuwait and the United Kingdom
Deliveroo is on a mission to transform the way you order food. We partner with the best restaurants in the business – from local hotspots to national favourites – and bring you the food you love, right to your door.
With thousands of choices and a fleet of our own delivery riders, we’ll have your order with you in an average of 32 minutes.
Deliveroo is a British tech success story. When Will Shu, Deliveroo’s founder and CEO, moved to London, he was surprised to find that it was nearly impossible to get great quality food delivered. He made it his personal mission to bring the best local restaurants direct to customers’ doors. The business was launched in 2013 with Will as our very first rider.
You can order either on the website or by using the Deliveroo app, available on iOS and Android. Simply add your address to find all the great restaurants delivering in your area, choose your food and place your order.
Once the restaurant receives your order, they’ll get to work preparing your food and then carefully package it. Once it's all ready to go, a rider will pick it up and bring it to you.
If you want to be super-organised, you can also order up to 24 hours in advance with a scheduled delivery.
We personally curate a high-quality and diverse selection of restaurants in your area. This can range from a top neighbourhood Lebanese to a much loved home grown burger chain.
We deliver every day from morning until late at night, and different restaurants and grocery partners will have different opening times. Visit the homepage or the app to see which restaurants are available in your area.
Once you’ve placed your order, it’s sent directly to the restaurant for them to prepare and package. Once it’s ready, a rider will pick up your order and bring it to your delivery address.
We do. You can make your choice of card or cash payment on the ‘checkout’ page when you are ready to place your order.
Whether you tip or not is completely up to you. You can tip in the app when placing your order or tip in cash when the rider delivers your food. Riders receive 100% of all tips.
The minimum order amount can vary depending on which restaurant you’re ordering from. If there’s a minimum order amount, you’ll be informed at checkout before you place your order.
If you have a voucher code, you can redeem this in the app or on the website.
If you’re using the app, go to your account and add the code into the ‘Add Voucher Code’ field. On the website, click ‘Add Promo Code’ on the checkout page.
We encourage restaurants to always use the same pricing for delivery as they do for their in-house menu, although there may be exceptions. Pricing for each menu item is clearly displayed in the app. If you have any questions about menu pricing, please contact the restaurant directly.
Yes! You can schedule orders for up to one day in advance.
Yes, you can! Click on the ‘Pickup’ tab on the Deliveroo homepage to see which restaurants are available for Pickup in your area.
Packaging always depends on the type of food and restaurant you’re ordering from. Restaurants take great care to use packaging that maintains the correct temperature for as long as possible.
If you have suggestions regarding the packaging or appearance of your food when it’s delivered, please contact us on email@example.com and we’ll pass on your feedback to the restaurant.
We have a dedicated team that looks after your entire Deliveroo experience, from the moment you place an order right through to it arriving with you.
However, we do understand that sometimes things might go wrong. If this is the case, you can use the Help function in the Deliveroo app to speak to our customer service team and report any issues.
You can also contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
You can contact our Customer Service team via the Help function in the app and we’ll do our best to make sure you get all the items you want added to your order.
Deliveroo has an on-time service guarantee for when things don’t go entirely to plan. You’ll automatically receive AED30 in Deliveroo credits within 24 hours of your order being late. Where we can, we will always try and proactively call you if we become aware that your order might not arrive within the estimated time of delivery, and our team will work to get your order to you as quickly as possible.
If you think you won’t be at the delivery address in time to receive your order, please let us know by using the Help function in the Deliveroo app.
Your rider will always try to call you if there’s an issue once they reach your delivery address. If they’re unable to contact you, our Customer Service team will try and reach you via phone and email. Please check your emails during the delivery time for any updates.
If we can’t contact you and are unable to deliver the order, your rider will wait for up to 10 minutes before leaving. In this event, you’ll still be charged for your order. To prevent this from happening, it’s always a good idea to double-check your contact and address details.
Our absolute priority is to offer the safest service possible to customers, riders and restaurants. We have taken a number of important actions, focused on extreme safety measures for restaurants, riders and customers. For example, we have introduced contactless delivery, restaurant management rules for order delivery and very strict hygiene guidelines for restaurants and riders. We are also in daily contact with local health officials to make sure we are offering the most up to date guidance and safest service possible. We realise this is an extremely concerning period for everyone and want to ensure our riders, restaurant partners and customers are supported during and beyond this unprecedented time.
Customers can choose ‘Contact-free delivery’ at check-out. Riders will be able to see when a customer has selected this option in the order’s delivery notes and will then follow a simple process to ensure there is no contact when the food is delivered.
Riders will be asked to let the customer know they have arrived, place the order outside their door, step a safe distance back and wait nearby for the customer to collect the food before the order can be completed. Riders are also able to make orders contact-free if they wish by letting customers know through the app before they arrive.
Since the outbreak of COVID-19 we have and continue to do everything we can to support riders:
COVID kit: Since the start of the pandemic, Deliveroo has continued to take industry-leading safety measures against COVID-19, including the provision of Personal Protection Equipment (PPE) to all riders, as well as being the first to launch contactless delivery.
We are working with restaurants to optimise their operations for delivery, and we are doing everything we can to make sure people still have access to the food they want and need.
Our customer care team is on hand to support our customers with any outstanding queries or complaints.
We have dedicated teams in place to support our customers, riders and restaurant partners during this worrying time. Please send us an email to email@example.com or you can send a message in-app.
The delivery fee is variable, based on your location. Some restaurants use their own delivery drivers. In that case, the restaurant sets its own delivery fee.
You pay less for nearby restaurants and you'll always know how much before selecting a restaurant.
This allows us to power your experience with Deliveroo, including adding new features and providing great customer service. A minimum or maximum amount may apply to the service fee, but you will always see the exact amount at checkout.
The service fee is calculated based on the order amount prior to any promotions or discounts which may apply to your order.
When you want to order less than the restaurant's minimum spend, you'll see this fee. To remove it, add more to your basket.
Sorry, this offer is only valid for new users of Deliveroo. And don't keep making accounts, we'll know! (And you wouldn't like us when we're angry). To find out more, please go to our T&C's.

Once you’ve ordered several times, we’ll email you your link so you can share it with your friends, family, colleagues, anyone and everyone.

At Deliveroo we want our customers, riders and restaurant and grocery partners to have the best possible food delivery experience. At the same time, we want to ensure that the communities we work with are safe. These guidelines are designed to help ensure that everyone who uses the Deliveroo platform has a safe and positive experience.
Be respectful: Our riders are at the heart of our business, collecting food from our restaurant and grocery partners and delivering it to your door. We ask that you treat riders with respect and report any behaviour that you find unprofessional to us directly by contacting Customer Support, so we can take appropriate action. We want everyone who uses Deliveroo to have a great experience, and being respectful to one another is key.
Be prompt: When you receive a notification that your rider is on their way to you, please ensure that you are ready to collect your food at the time indicated in the app. This is so that our riders do not have to spend time waiting around for customers to come and collect their food when they could be working. Additionally, we ask that you use ‘Delivery notes’ at checkout to indicate where you would like your food to be delivered to, so that your rider does not have to search for your location.
Fraud: Fraudulent activity undermines the trust that we have built with our community. Committing fraud is a criminal offence. We have a number of measures in place to monitor fraudulent activity from customers, as well as riders and restaurants and grocery partners. If an account is found or suspected to be engaging in fraudulent activity, we will take action which may result in:
How we investigate potential infringement
If we are made aware of a customer who is acting in breach of these guidelines, we will investigate the report before taking any action on the account. These investigations are always led by someone on our team, and customers will always be notified if we decide to take any action. We have shared similar guidelines with riders, which you can read about here, and restaurants and grocery partners, which you can read about here.
