Foodies have a new way of talking about their favorite restaurants thanks to upcoming review sections coming to DoorDash.
Now you won’t have to switch between Google reviews and DoorDash app (opens in new tab) to see if the food in a restaurant is good. Written revisions are being added to condense all this information together as a direct update to the Original public comments (opens in new tab). With this update, people will be able to go into more detail about why their favorite food spot is so good. DoorDash also hopes these reviews will provide public feedback to restaurateurs on things they can improve.
The second resource, Most Liked Items, is linked to Written Reviews. Let’s say you’ve chosen a restaurant based on its good reviews, but you don’t know what to order from the menu. You can narrow down your decision thanks to the most liked items, which allows people to rate individual dishes. DoorDash claims that there will be a “thumbs up” and “thumbs down” icon next to each menu item. The top three rated cards will appear with a “Most Likes” tag next to them.
If you want to see the most popular restaurants in your area, DoorDash is adding new top 10 lists. The restaurants that appear on the list change based on user ratings and how often people order. So entries are dynamic and you might end up discovering a new favorite place.
And the last resort is Most Loved All Stars. As the name suggests, it is a collection of the top rated restaurants in the United States, Australia and Canada. You can view the list of US 100 entries (opens in new tab) and the 15-entry australian (opens in new tab) list on DoorDash’s commercial website. However, as of this writing, the Canadian list has yet to be released.
According to a DoorDash representative, the most liked items and written reviews will be released in the US and select markets in Australia and Canada. Top 10 lists will be available in certain areas of the US, Australia, Canada and Japan. So far, these are the only countries that have these features. It is not known if there are plans to expand to other countries.
If you live in any of these countries, we recommend that you update your DoorDash app so you can start reviewing.
Over the past few months, DoorDash has been improving its platform to be more customer friendly. In early April, the company added a new DashPass Service for Students which cuts the normal cost of a subscription in half. Other perks include no delivery fee (as long as you meet the minimum subtotal), five percent credit back, and access to exclusive menu items.
If you order a lot and want to save money, has introduced a new app called Too Good To Go that helps you find deals.
