Talk of the Town
Tash’s provides digital ordering
Select dishes and pay on phone, from your table
Tash’s Craft Bar has introduced a contactless digital menu to make eating out safer and more convenient in these Covid times.
Rather than a waitron taking your order, each table has a QR code assigned to it which you can scan on your phone with a QR scanner.
If you don’t have a scanner you can download it from the Google Play Store.
The scan takes you to Tash’s digital menu, which includes almost the entire menu.
Browse the menu and click on your choices of food and drink to add them to your cart.
Once having chosen what you want, go to your cart to send your order to the kitchen.
The kitchen then receives the order digitally and begins preparing your food.
Diners have the choice of each using their own phone to scan the QR code and order, for individual billing, or if they want a combined bill they can place the order through one phone.
The waitron only appears to bring your food and drinks to the table.
To pay the bill, go to checkout and fill in the fields for your bank card number, phone number and the amount, including the tip.
Customers who have Zapper or PayPal on their phones can also use those apps. I tried the digital menu last Friday, ordering a blueberry daiquiri (R39), one of Tash’s mocktails during this time of the booze ban. Made with fresh blueberries it was thick and refreshing.
Other flavours available are mango, pineapple, strawberry and mint, and plain strawberry.
I also had a tomahawk steak, which is on special on Saturdays for R169. The steak was succulent and delicious, and was well-accompanied by garlic mini fries and coleslaw.
The contactless digital menu is a convenient innovation, but customers can still choose to order the traditional way through a waitron.
