Total expenses were higher at Rs 3,383 crore. The same was Rs 2,485 crore in the corresponding period a year ago, as per the exchange filing.

With the results, the Deepinder Goyal-founded company saw a third straight quarter of profitable earnings, amid the e-commerce sector pressured by high inflation and muted demand.

Notably, Indian consumers ordered more food from restaurants during the ICC Men's Cricket World Cup between October 5 and November 19. The festive season also helped Zomato and rival Softbank-backed Swiggy bring in maximum  yearly sales share and boost its topline.

For the mainstay food delivery business, revenue grew 48 per cent for the quarter while that from its quick commerce division, Blinkit, was more than double.
