It was supposed to be August 29, 1997. But since Sarah and gang blew up Cyberdyne, that's changed. Judgement Day was not averted, only postponed.

The machines are coming.

Well, it is 2009 already... and this is how one orders pizza in India.

My son wanted Domino's pizza today, and so I look up the menu on the web.

These guys too cheap to pay their hosting bill despite charging arm and leg for Pizza. And this is not the first time, I have seen this message before at the same site.

Therefore, we don't really have to worry them getting into our financial and health data. They won't pay for such connectivity.

In Delhi we have this excellent website FoodieBay: Food Guide for Delhi NCR, Mumbai and Kolkata with Menu with scanned menus of almost all neighborhood restaurants across the city!

just minutes back i ordered from pizza hut online and hungrily waiting for it to arrive. And then I see this on TBHP.

Here is something that might interest you. once you order on dominos, it shows the status.
Rachel has started preparing the pizza -> rachel has put it in oven -> the pizza is out and being packed -> Jim has taken the bag and is out the door -> within 5 mins I get a knock at the door.

may be we are getting there, slowly.

too bad they don't accept coupons at my local dominos so I ended up ordering from pizza hut.

looks like it started in 2008. what's funny is till a few weeks back, my neighborhood dominos would not accept online orders at all.

Where's your Domino's pizza? Track it online - USATODAY.com

I am pretty sure it started in 2007 or before

+1 Pizza hut has started adding Service Taxes with your bill.
Service Tax + Vat + Menu card price = Actual Price. :(

I saw the earliest online Pizza ordering website in 1994. It was implemented by a Pizza shop rather than a Pizza company. I was very tempted to order, but I was in NJ and the Pizza shop was in Palo Alto. Where else could a Pizza shop have online ordering, when most of the world hadn't heard of www or even Internet.

GoGola is found at many places in Mumbai. Generally outside cinema houses and Big Bazaars. Costs about 30 rs for 1 gola and is nowhere near the taste of the local golawala. No thanks, I prefer the one for 5 bucks
