Dineout, table reservation and restaurant promotion service in India, has announced its partnership with Carlson Rezidor Hotel Group. Building on the success of a pilot exercise undertaken in 2016, Dineout, with this partnership, will help Carlson Rezidor Hotels Group accelerate its growth in F&B segments in India. This partnership will enable Dineout users access to the Carlson Rezidor Hotels Group’s portfolio of hotels across India. Guests will be able to experience cuisines such as Neung Roi, fine Thai dining at Radisson Blu Plaza New Delhi or The Great Kebab Factory available at many hotel locations, and enjoy ongoing promotions by booking instantly, 24/7 on Dineout’s table reservation system.
“As one of the leading international hospitality operators in India, we have established a nationwide presence and deep understanding of this key market. F&B is an important component of the hospitality business, bringing about a culinary experience for guests as well. With the evolving technological landscape aided by increased Internet penetration and use of smartphones, we recognise the need to provide a solution for our F&B outlets and are delighted to partner with Dineout,” said Raj Rana, CEO – South Asia, Carlson Rezidor Hotel Group.
“The Indian F&B market is changing every day, and Dineout has the pulse of the discerning Indian diner. We see tremendous value in being able to offer our users world-class F&B from one of the world’s largest hotel groups. We will leverage our experience and insights in the industry to help the Carlson Rezidor’s F&B offerings realise their full potential in India,” said Ankit Mehrotra, co-founder, Dineout.

Dineout is their first port of call to research F&B destinations and discover unique dining experiences. Dineout’s technology exposes customers to more brand experiences through their devices and social media, while helping our hotels and their F&B outlets achieve greater competitive advantage,” added Sandy Russell, vice president – Asia Pacific, Carlson Rezidor Hotel Group.
