The Story


In 2011, Chope founder and CEO Arrif Ziaudeen faced a problem that just wouldn’t go away: he couldn’t get seats at his favourite restaurants and the long queues were a pain. This led to a bigger question: why couldn’t he just book online without picking up the phone? With steely determination, he set out on a mission to improve the lives of Singaporeans who love food but detest long wait times.

Five years on, Chope has expanded to five other cities (Shanghai, Hong Kong, Bangkok, Jakarta, Bali). Armed with an 80-member team hailing from all over the world but united by a fiery passion for good food and fuss-free dining, we’re here to improve the lives of hungry diners all across Asia. Heck, we even play cupid.

With Chope, you can reserve a table at over 1000 top restaurants instantly, for free, wherever you are. You’ll discover exciting new restaurants, get the inside scoop on can’t miss dishes, earn free meals just by booking, and gain access to exclusive promotions only for Chope users!
