How many times have any of these happened to you? Run out of booze while having a party, felt hungry at weird hours of the night, have a group of friends over for a late night football match and opened the refrigerator door to find nothing inside? I’m guessing a lot of hands are raised. In a city which never sleeps most of the grocery stores around are shut and with the latest deadline situation, most of the late night eateries are shut too. Fret not, two late night delivery websites have been providing Mumbai with food, booze and even cigarettes at odd hours.

Fly by knight started by former Google employee Neha Jain and her business partner Jude DeSouza have been catering to Mumbaikars in need of food and smokes during late hours at night. They service residents from Colaba to Goregaon between 11 pm to 4 am. Fly by Knight provides dishes like fried rice, chicken gravy, veg noodles, biryanis, chips, pav bhaji, brownies, chocolates, soda, Red Bull, aerated drinks, condoms, smokes and our all time favourite late night snack – Maggi! They also offer the not so usual item – Eno! Their mode of payment is cash on delivery and they take at least 45 minutes to deliver at your doorstep. They do charge Rs 100 as convenience fee for orders below Rs.500 but there is no minimum value order required. They do sell most of the items at MRP and the food prices start from Rs 200.

Madbites, formerly known as MadOrders, started in 2011 by young lads, Gautam Udani, Avik Chatterjee and Jigar Zatakia, has been serving up hot food from their kitchen in Saki Naka to the hungry souls of Mumbai from 8:00 pm to 4:00 am. Their menu is pretty impressive with a wide selection of salads, nachos, pastas, sandwiches, burgers, pizzas, Chinese, biryanis, desserts and aerated drinks. Select the food items that will cater to your cravings, fill in your details, get an email confirmation and pay when the food arrives at your door step! Their menu offers options for vegetarian, non vegetarians and they also serve Jain food. The dishes on their menu range from an ice cream at Rs 45 to Chicken biryani for Rs 200. Mad Bites also has a ‘No door bell’ policy. Once the delivery boy reaches outside your house they’ll call you for collecting the parcel making sure they don’t disturb anyone. With food packed neatly with plastic cutlery Mad Bites has tried to help feed our growling stomachs at random hours at night.
