Zomato, the restaurant search and discovery service that’s raised a whopping $55 million in VC, is making good on its promise to continue expanding to more countries beyond its origins in India. The 2008-founded company - which counts Yelp, IAC-owned Urbanspoon, Priceline-acquired OpenTable, and TripAdvisor as competitors - is adding a presence in Central and Eastern Europe by means of two local acquisitions. It’s gobbled up the Czech Republic’s Lunchtime.cz and Slovakia’s Obedovat.sk - the leading restaurant guides in their respective countries, according to Zomato - for a combined $3.25 million. This follows the acquisition of New Zealand-based restaurant search service MenuMania in July and means the service is now available in various cities in 15 countries, with the startup targeting a further ten or so in the coming months. Zomato co-founder Pankaj Chaddah tells me this will include, Poland, Ireland, Malaysia, Vietnam, Lebanon, Jordan, Kuwait and Canada — with the U.S. notably still missing in action.
