Additionally, we found that there is a three times increase in Zomato traffic on Gold vis-a-vis non-Gold restaurants. The increase in inbound requests from restaurant partners (more than 200 per month as we speak) further reinstates the excitement for Zomato Gold in the restaurant owner community.”
