Manish Goyal, an IIT Bombay graduate launched Foodies Compass, a food lover’s guide. They provide information related to food with food pictures, ratings and reviews.

“As a backpacker and traveller, there was always this problem of what to order due to lack of visual and credible sources. So, we introduced this website and app where people can see visuals of food before they order,” said Goyal.   

Foodies Compass is serving to more than 150 restaurants in Gurgaon, with their pictorial menus and they look forward to expand their outlets to other cities as well.
