Frequently asked questions

GENERAL

Your account

Is my credit card information safe?

Absolutely. Grain does not store any of this sensitive information on our servers. We use Stripe as our payment processor. Stripe has been audited by a PCI-certified auditor and is certified to PCI Service Provider Level 1. This is the most stringent level of certification available in the payments industry.

How can I get free food?

That is the dream. Share the promo code from your account page with your friends. When they sign up with your code and place their first order with us, you will both get $5 worth of Grain credits.

Can I transfer Grain credits to a friend or exchange them for cash?

Although we want you to make the most of your purchased Grain credits, please note they are non-transferable and non-refundable. They cannot be exchanged for cash in part or full.

Will my Grain credits expire?

Your Grain credits never expire, ever (unless you spend them of course).

Food

Is Grain Halal?

Grain Catering is certified Halal.

We have just moved our online restaurant operations to a new kitchen and will be getting our Halal certification for our new facility very soon.

Rest assured as we are still using 100% Halal-certified ingredients for our entire menu.

How does it work?

1. Choose and order easily
Choose what you like from our menu - we are always changing it up. It just takes a few simple clicks to place an order.

How do I know whether my order is confirmed?

An order confirmation will be sent to the email address you signed up with.

All delivery details (e.g. delivery timing, address), fees and charges on your order confirmation are assumed to be accurate. If there are any discrepancies, let us know within 5 minutes of receiving your order confirmation via email and we will do our best to fix it.

What happens if I need to cancel my order?

1. For pre-orders
Cancellations need to be made at least 12 hours before serving time. A full refund will be made in Grain credits.

2. For same day orders
You can cancel within 5 minutes via email or through our hotline after your order is placed. Cancellation requests beyond this time frame will not be eligible for any refunds. This 5-minute window begins when you receive your order confirmation via email.

3. For orders above $300
Cancellations made by 3PM, 2 days before serving date, will be eligible for a 50% refund. For example, if your serving date is on Sep 14, you can cancel your order before 3PM on Sep 12 to get a 50% refund.

Any cancellations made after that time period will not be eligible for any refund.

Something’s come up, can I reschedule my order to another day?

Sure thing, just let us know at least 12 hours ahead of time and we will be happy to move things around.

For same day orders, we will be happy to do so if you let us know within 5 minutes of placing the order via email or through our hotline.

For the avoidance of doubt, this 5-minute window begins when you receive your order confirmation via email.

Can I change the location of my delivery?

1. For pre-orders:
With at least 12 hour’s notice, we will do our best to change your delivery address for you - this will be at our discretion as we are a small team.

2. For same day orders
As our delivery areas are segregated based on hubs and the capacity we have at each hub differs, we will not be able to accommodate for same day changes in delivery areas.

What happens if I am not around when my delivery courier arrives?

When our couriers arrive at your specified delivery location, they will give you a ring or drop you a text so you know your meal has arrived.

If they can’t get hold of you, our Customer Care team will also reach out and try to contact you via phone or email.

Our couriers will wait up to 10 minutes before heading to their next location. Once this time has elapsed, redelivery can be requested. However, it will be chargeable depending on location and the delivery timing will be at our discretion and logistic capacity.

Please ensure your contact details are correct as we will not be able to refund/reschedule orders that were not fulfilled due to incorrect delivery and/or contact details.

If you won’t be at your delivery location during the allotted time slot, please drop us an email at [email protected] or give us a call at +65 3163 5335. We will be happy to leave the food at your doorstep or with the reception.

Food

How can delivery food taste great?

We prepare the food fresh every day. They are produced in small batches and kept it in a controlled temperature. During our R&D processes, we also constantly track the quality of our meals. These steps help us make sure that you always receive your meals at their very best in terms of both nutrition and taste.

What is in my meal?

We want you to know exactly what goes into every dish we prepare, so you can view the full list of ingredients as well as major allergens by clicking on the picture of the dish. (We can’t list “love” though).

How long will my meal keep for?

We prepare our meals fresh every day so they are best consumed within 2-3 hours of delivery.
