What's better than being able to dine-in at restaurants? 1-for-1 deals & discounts.

Dine in at restaurants without breaking the bank.

With the 10 per cent service charge, dining-in at restaurants can be costly.

In fact, some might even choose to not dine-in completely in order to save money – more power (and money) to them.

While others might consider this extreme, there’s nothing wrong with wanting to save money.

On the other hand, there’s also nothing wrong with wanting to indulge in a treat once in a while.

I mean, you do you.

Personally, I try to strike a balance by choosing to only dine-in at restaurants with promotions to control my purse strings.

If you’re like me and want to dine-in without breaking the bank, consider pandapro, which has new dine-in discounts of one-for-one offers and up to 30 per cent at participating restaurants.

What is pandapro?

A monthly subscription plan by foodpanda, pandapro members get to enjoy three offers from the new dine-in option: one-for-one offers or up to 30 per cent off at participating restaurants.

Members can also benefit on a monthly basis for orders made on foodpanda.

This includes free delivery at selected restaurants, 20 per cent off deals on selected restaurants, and 5 per cent additional discounts on pick-up, which are all unlimited.

Additionally, pandapro members also receive two 10 per cent discount vouchers on pandamart each month.

Restaurants with one-for-one offers
