America with the launch of its Toronto section.

The service covers over
11,000 restaurants in the Greater Toronto Area and is available on web and mobile (iOS, Android, Windows Phone, and BlackBerry).

The Zomato app provides detailed information for over 11,000
restaurants, for customers looking to dine out, get
food delivered, or order takeout. One can browse through restaurant
information, read and write restaurant reviews, share pictures, and
build a personal network of people whose opinions they trust. The service also allows business owners to reach out to and
engage with a highly targeted audience. The mobile
app allows users to discover restaurants around them based on their
physical location, in addition to providing information for all
restaurants in the city.

"We're proud to include Toronto in our growing list of world-class
cities. It boasts of a vibrant restaurant industry, and Canada is a
hugely promising market for us," said Deepinder Goyal, founder and CEO of Zomato, in a news release.
"We've earmarked US$10 million for our
expansion in Canada, and are committed to making Zomato the go-to
restaurant discovery service in the country. Canada is truly a great
starting point for us before we think of getting into the United
States."

"We aim to have a 50-member team within
the next twelve months. Over the next few months, we plan to expand to
other cities across Canada, including Vancouver, Montreal, Ottawa, and
Calgary," said Jeremy Potvin, Zomato Canada's country manager in the release.

Zomato plans to further expand its reach across
Australia, Europe, South-East Asia, the Middle East and the Americas, in
the coming months.
