Each and every booking with EazyDiner comes with a special EazyDeal, ranging from free alcoholic drinks or desserts or appetizers to 50 per cent off on the total bill. No meal comes without a deal.
With each booking, one also earns EazyPoints, which can be redeemed for an array of delicious treats. One can earn points for booking through EazyDiner as well as by leaving user reviews on restaurant profiles. The more points you earn, the more delicious and exciting the rewards become.
