Back

DFDL’s Vinay Ahuja and Company’s Co-founder and Group CFO Discuss Eatigo’s Success in Bringing Technology Used in Airline Ticket and Hotel Room Reservations to the Restaurant Table
Episode 4: Changing Dining Habits

In this video Sid discusses differences in dining habits, comparing the experiences of his native India where eating out is usually a social event to Thailand where it is a casual part of day-to-day life, and Singapore with its heavy reservation culture. He comments on Eatigo’s experience upon entering the Malaysian market and having to adapt to radically different dining habits. He notes for example how the festival of Ramadan not only affects the Muslim community but the wider population as a whole, transforming dining into a universal activity in which all take part and dine together as a community.
