Grab Singapore vs Airasia Dine-in Services: Promotions, Discounts, Cuisines & More
The term ‘Super-app’ is used when we are describing an application that combines multiple services and features into a single platform.
Essentially, it goes beyond the traditional concept of a standalone app by integrating various functions and services, allowing users to access a wide range of features within a single application.
What’s the first app that comes to your mind?
Mine is, Grab.
From ride-hailing to food delivery, Grab is now a super-app that offers transportation, food delivery, shopping, financial services, entertainment, travel, and more. With a full suite of services under its belt, on 1 June 2023, the company further introduced its new Dine-in BETA services, offering its users dining vouchers at discounted rates!
Just days after, AirAsia also launched a dine-in feature on its travel super-app that offers travel-related services from booking of flights to accommodations, to insurance, shopping and transportation.
What are the similarities and differences of both apps? Well, we’ve got you covered in this article. Let’s zoom in on their product features!

AirAsia Food’s Dine-in Service
On the contrary, the AirAsia superapp’s Dine-in service allows users to discover and book new restaurants near them, or places where they want to travel to, including Jakarta, Bangkok, Chiang Mai, Pattaya and Phuket.
This feature is in fact, powered by Eatigo, the restaurant reservation platform that offers dine-in promotions at different hours. Essentially, the discounts offered on AirAsia are time-dependent and you may get discounts of up to 50 per cent, alongside 100 AirAsia points with every reservation you make.
Yup, you can make a reservation using the AirAsia app.
We won’t know if there are plans to expand this feature in Singapore, but before that, you now have an option to dine in Malaysia at discounted rates.
It’s easy to cross the causeway with the KTM train service and if you’re planning to go in soon on a public holiday, you can consider downloading the app as there are over 600 popular and up-and-coming restaurants to choose.
The service is available in Bukit Bintang, Petaling Jaya, Kuala Lumpur, Klang/Shah Alam, Cheras/Ampang, Bangsar, Damansara, Puchong, Old Klang Road, Mont Kiara, Subang Jaya, Putrajaya/Cyberjaya/Seremban, Kepong, Genting Highlands, and Sri Petaling.
