What happens after I have placed my order?
The order arrives in our system and is directly sent to the restaurant you have ordered from. After a few seconds the restaurant receives the order by fax, email or our own software T-Connect. If the restaurant has no connection, your order will be passed by phone by a member of our call center. This way you can always be sure that your order will be correctly sent to the chosen restaurant.
Once the restaurant has received all the details of your order, it is their responsibility to prepare and deliver your meal. Takeaway.com is only responsible for the communication of the order, not for the final product (service, quality of the food and delivery).
What happens if the restaurant is unexpectedly closed and that they forgot to inform Takeaway.com? We will immediately contact you by phone to cancel your order. If we are unable to reach you by phone, we will send you a cancellation email.
How long does a delivery take?
On average, it takes 45-60 minutes from the moment when the order is placed until the moment it's delivered. The delivery time can vary from one restaurant to another and depends on the number of orders the restaurants has to prepare. Keep in mind that on Sundays, it may take a little longer as restaurants are very busy.
It is also possible to select the time you wish to receive your order. You can select this on the checkout page. The selected time will be noted in the confirmation email.
Takeaway.com is not responsible for the restaurant's delivery times. If ever a restaurant can't deliver at the requested time, they must contact the customer a.s.a.p. to inform them of the delay.
If your order was not delivered on time, please call the restaurant on the phone number provided in the confirmation e-mail or contact our customer service.

My order was not delivered
If your order was not delivered, there are two possible scenarios:
1. The restaurant received the order but did not deliver it
In this case, our confirmation system shows that the restaurant has confirmed the receipt of your order but the restaurant unfortunately did not deliver it. It is possible that your order was lost at the restaurant or that they decided for some reason not to deliver it. In any case, the restaurant is responsible for the delivery and must contact you to inform you, if for any reason, your order cannot be delivered. You should call the restaurant on the phone number provided in the confirmation email to find out what went wrong. We also ask you to send your complaint to our customer service, so that we can find out the exact reason why your order was not delivered and if necessary take action.

In case of a change in the order or the delivery time, they must inform you, the customer. If you were not informed in time, please send your complaint to our customer service and we will contact the restaurant to discuss the problem.
2. The restaurant is not responding
In this case our call centre was not able to send your order to the restaurant because the restaurant was not responding. In this kind of situation we are unfortunately forced to cancel the order. Takeaway.com will always first try to contact you by phone, and if you don't pick up we will send you a cancellation email. For this reason it is very important that you enter a valid phone number and email address when ordering.
