Certain principles and guidelines are laid out for the restaurants to follow to get them registered with Zomato. Those guidelines are defined as:

Restaurant Name

Inside the Zomato application users identify restaurants and search for them using Restaurant Names. And that’s why the restaurant owners should keep their restaurant names as engaging and as attractive as possible, and keeping at least, should  mention them during their registration process. It should be the name which is on board of your offline shop. The taglines and abbreviations are not accepted in the names.

Restaurant Address

The restaurant address should be properly mentioned and needs to be in a standardized manner as per guidelines because this is the key which guides the customers to the restaurants. If your restaurant is in a building above the ground floor then one should mention the specific floor number for easily locating the diners. More than one landmark and abbreviations  should be mentioned in the restaurant address because it may confuse the customers.

Restaurant Features

The restaurant should also mention restaurant features related to their restaurants for comprehensive understanding of the diners. One needs to fill these attributes during the registration process because people make decisions of where to dine based upon their facilities. Those features can be like:

Whether the restaurant is pure veg or allows both veg and non-veg, availability of WI-Fi, facility of exclusive Happy Hours or if Smoking Area is provided or not.

Business Hours

The restaurant owner should responsibly mention the time at which they start their services or uptill which time they end servicing. If the takeaway or delivery hours and dine-in hours are different from each other, then one should mention it during the registration process.


The facade, ambience and food helps people to get a detailed understanding and decide where to place orders. The facade pictures are the pictures of the restaurant from the exterior and the entrance. The ambience pictures are the pictures which showcases the interior of the restaurant, lighting and sitting arrangement of the restaurant. The food pictures are the pictures of the food the restaurant offers and is specialized in. No images with people are to be put up as directed by Zomato. 


The diners rely highly upon the menus of the restaurants for deciding which restaurant to choose for placing their order and how much it would cost them. Avoid putting up menus without prices because it may affect the user’s decision and he may not even consider your restaurant for placing the order. Only the relevant text should be put on the Zomato application.
