Featured Review – The Lab

Nestled in the by-lanes of Walkeshwar, ‘The Lab’ offers a cozy, comfortable vibe that all of us dream of! A small outlet with colourful low-seated chairs, walls embellished with quirky frames, and paired up with good music, The Lab is an innovative outlet where science and fiction dominates your brain! Have plenty of time to kill? You’ve come to the right place. With exciting board games, The Lab promises you more than a few hours of fun. And the best part is the absolutely delicious food you’re about to order that won’t burn a hole in your pocket. So if you’ve got a few hours and yet are on a budget, head to The Lab!

Are you a hard-core vegetarian? No problem, plenty to choose from. Taking you back to your school days, The Lab is a themed around science, so much so that food and drinks are served in flasks and test tubes! Is the nostalgia already hitting you?

Let me tell you a secret. The best way to earn those amazing Zephop points is to try the Hummus and Pita bread for starters. The creamy texture of the hummus with finely chopped herbs and chilli flakes adorning the olive oil dressing in chickpea-based dip will blow your mind away. If your motto in life is ‘fries before guys’ then it’s about time you try the Mac & Cheese fries. To all the cheese lovers out there, try their crispy cheese balls, which is absolutely a Zephop fav!

Ready for some main course or are you already full? Indulge in some beautiful Penne Arrabbiata Pasta or the perfectly baked Mushroom Pizza. If your tummy still nods a big YES to desserts, slurp into an indulgent Oreo Shake or a Classic Belgian Waffle. This is the best way to earn some Zephop points.

Cannot get over how amazing and fun The Lab is? Come join and sign up at Zephop, to Discover many more breathtaking places. Remember, there is no other place where you can avail the best deals, free rewards, and tons of goodies when you sign up with our loyalty management program. We’re always pumped to hear comments from you, so please drop by your comments and suggestions below! Until next time, From Zephop, with Love!

Featured Review – Zinga

Hello lovers of food and great times! Today we wanted to tell you all about a great place to hang out in Vashi, called Zinga. This past week we have had a wonderful and hugely successful milestone here at Zephop. Over ₹ 10,00,000 worth of points have gone through the Zephop platform since our inception. We have been excited about this and there have been high-fives all round!

The ambience and facilities at Zinga hit home on many counts. There’s free WiFi, the decor is lovely and it is really easy to get to. The cuisine is mainly seafood and Malwani, but don’t let that distract you from the vegetarian dishes. All their courses are packed with beautiful flavours that hit the palate just right.

Why not go to our Discover page and check them out? To redeem some of those Zephop points, we recommend trying the Bombil fry or the Mutton Hirwa Masala Thali. We guarantee you will enjoy these.

Featured Review – WTF What’s the Flavour

We’ve not featured a place for a while, so it was high time to start talking about a great new place in Nerul called WTF, who have decided to take customer engagement to the next level by partnering with us here at Zephop. WTF opened in January this year and has already become a hotspot in the area. Here’s why…

The location is great as they are located in close proximity to a lot of colleges – those in SIES or DY Patil will know what we’re on about. The ambience is lively and the vibe is great, especially with the quirky art deco wall. It serves as a backdrop to what we think will be great conversations. It is a great place to either go for a quick bite at lunch hour but at the same time it has enough choice on the menu to host a nice dinner as well. WTF is very pocket friendly and the quality of food as well the portion sizes are great. So when it is your turn to pick up the tab, you might want to take your friends here and maybe redeem some of those Zephop points that are burning a hole in your virtual pocket!

They do a lot of great cold drinks and milkshakes as well, and you can redeem some Zephop points on a scrumptious milkshake or iced tea. WTF are well known for their flavour packed burgers and you must also try the Chicken Sandwich (Grilled Cheese/Mayo). These get consistently good reviews. Sides are to die for, take a look at their chilli cheese fries for instance.

Everything that WTF is doing, we have thoroughly enjoyed. They are invested and excited about being a part of the Zephop story. So when you go there, try out some of our recommendations, redeem some rewards, show them some love, and don’t forget to have a fabulous time! Till next time, eat well!

Here at Zephop, we can’t quite decide whether we love the rains or not. Well, we do love the pitter-patter of raindrops and curling up with a cozy cuppa and design some Zephop collateral. But we’re not enjoying the trek about towns when it’s pouring heaven’s insides! New things continue to happen at Zephop, and for August, it’s Pune places.

Featured Review – Cafe Istaa

There’s a famous saying that “Big things come in small packages.” This is especially true for our latest business-on-board, Cafe Istaa. A small place that packs a punch, with great food, great service, and an awesome ambience. This is a business that cares about the likes and wants of its customers and so, have partnered with us here at Zephop to bring the best rewards to customers.

The cafe has a relaxing, calm and quiet atmosphere. It is perfect to go to in a big group with your friends for a catch up during your summer break. There’s seating both indoors as well as outdoors, for those breezy evenings, that you can spend relaxing on the artificial green carpet. With the fountain thrown in for good measure, it is perfection.

Why not try the Paneer Tikka Sandwich or the Mumbai Grilled Sandwich? We hear that their Cheesy Fries are epic too – buttery , crispy, cheesy and full of perfect flavours and herbs. And then use your Zephop points to redeem against some delicious rewards, like Nachos with Salsa or a Margherita pizza. The palette of taste and colours are delicately balanced, we love the chef!

A delightful little addition is their baked goodies cabinet. Full of yummy things to die for – this has a selection of snacks – pastries, puffs, cakes, which are regularly updated. Located just opposite SIES college, it is an ideal hangout spot to get to.

Everything that Cafe Istaa is doing, we have thoroughly enjoyed. They are invested and excited about being a part of the Zephop story, so when you go there, try out some of our recommendations, redeem some rewards, show them some love, and don’t forget to have a fabulous time!

Featured Review – Satkar

Hi there, from Zephop! This week we are talking about Satkar. Now, a lot of people were disappointed when a previous outlet of this restaurant was shut. But, fear not, true to their brand value and loyalty to their customers, they have come back with a super yum menu and great service. They prove that by coming on board with Zephop, they are going for customer delight and care about their loyalty as well.

So why these guys? Well really, why not? Positioned well for attracting students and professionals alike, Satkar is a great spot with budget-friendly food and drinks on offer. Take a look at this, for instance… drool!

Now that it is getting into summers proper, there is a lot of joy in the simplicity of good vegetarian food. You can get Zephop points when you order an Onion Rawa Dosa, which we thought was very tasty. When you have points to redeem, you can use them to get a Paneer Schezwan Dosa or a Mexican Dosa, maybe. You could try a tasty Grilled Sandwich or for a fuller option, go for the Mushroom Fried Rice or the Manchow Noodles.

The ambience of this place goes with the food, it does what it says on the tin. The service enchants and overall, it is a great place to go either with friends, or family, or even colleagues. Because of its location, the latter seems to be a popular choice with people. You can book a table here for free too.

We hope this has sold Satkar to you. If you decide to choose this place for your next meal, tell us about it in the Comments section? Oh, and don’t forget to sign up to Zephop to get those deals. Until next time, have a great time dining!

Featured Review – Spice Kitchen

Hello from us here at Zephop! Here we will explore why we partner with the businesses we do. We’ll talk about the most exciting deals and special events and offers that will excite you. Today we are talking about Spice Kitchen.

Spice Kitchen was one of our first onboarded businesses. They were very keen to partner with us to engage with their customer better and to increase their offering based on need and desire.

We love how budget-friendly this place is! Two people can comfortably dine for ₹500 to ₹700. And where else these days can you have a Murg Kullar Biriyani for ₹270 only!? Super love. Located in Chembur’s cool hangout spot, the ambience is great to go with the yum dishes.

Free rewards that can be redeemed for Zephop points include a whole range of delicious snacks, drinks, main courses, and even combos. You can get deals for as little as 500 points and if you wanted to save up for a special treat, we do like the idea of ‘Tandoori Bharwan Aloo’ or ‘Aagri Chicken Handi’. Hmmm, this is making me very hungry!

You can book a table here for free and catch sports live on their LCD screens. The menu includes Indian and Chinese dishes, but don’t think that’s limiting, because really, the strength here is the Biriyanis!

We hope this has sold Spice Kitchen to you. If you decide to choose this place for your next meal, tell us about it? Oh, and don’t forget to sign up to Zephop to get those deals. Until next time, cheers!

Café XO is not only a great place to hang out, it is special to us at Zephop for another reason as well.  They were our first onboarded business. By placing their faith and investing their time with the Zephop team, they have already placed themselves as leaders of customer engagement and satisfaction. So why these guys?

Well really, why not? Positioned well for attracting students and professionals alike, Café XO is Chembur’s cool hangout spot with budget-friendly food and drinks on offer. Great ambience, good food, fab service – what’s not to love, we say! Take a look at this, for instance… drool!

Free rewards that can be redeemed for Zephop points include a whole range of delicious snacks, drinks, main courses, and even combos. You can get deals for as little as 500 points and if you wanted to save up for a special treat, we do like the idea of “Bangkok Cooler + Veg Quesadilla/Paneer Satay” as a combo for 5000 points.

You can book a table here for free, catch sports live on their LCD screens. The menu is varied; cuisines being Indian, Chinese, Tandoor, Continental, Thai, and Italian. All kinds of alcohol is also served, including some good draught beer!

We hope this has sold Café XO to you. So scoot along to grab a deal or two! And let us know what you think in the Comments section!
