Fasso founder funds new food discovery startup Quinto


Jaydeep Barman supports the app that focuses on the dish rather than the restaurant.

While experts believe that food discovery space is crowded in India, Sahil Khan and Hrishikesh Rajpathak think otherwise. The duo started mobile focused food discovery startup Quinto in August last year and now it has raised an undisclosed amount of funding from Jaydeep Barman of Faaso.

Quinto lets users search and discover dishes with crowdsourced ratings with the aim of answering questions like, ‘Where’s the best chicken biryani around or best dish to order at any particular restaurant?’

The seed round will be used to ramp up their engineering and marketing team. “We will allocate sigificant chunk of fund towards personalized recommendation engine, creating extended food ontologies, and improve the natural language processing engine that will help us to interact with users in innovative ways as well as data collection,” said co-founder Sahil Khan.

Quinto also got selected for TiE Bootcamp where they tweaked up their product last year. Contrary to experts’ belief about the crowded food discovery space, the duo thinks there is still a lot to be done. Zomato and a few others have done a fantastic job in addressing the use case of restaurant discovery and finding peripheral information regarding restaurants.
