Customers ordering in for iftar and suhoor can enjoy up to 50% off their orders through the app. Careem Food optimizes the accuracy of food order delivery estimates by assigning Captains to orders based on their proximity to the restaurant and delivery location, and working with restaurants to ensure orders are dispatched on time.
