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.

If you haven’t been, you must head here soon because you will be hard pressed to find this level of customer service anywhere else. The staff here are super friendly and want to keep loyal customers coming back, which is where Zephop has become a part of their success story.

You must sign up to Zephop to join over a 1000 happy customers and redeem free rewards every time to go to a restaurant or cafe or even a boutique. What are you waiting for? Just go to zephop.com/signup

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!

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.
