CON: Where ChowNow beats us.

✅ ChowNow beats us when it comes to table reservations and online payment processing. They can also make a custom-built app for your restaurant.


🚫 Kyte currently does not offer table reservations. However, you can add a direct contact link to your digital menu. We also don't process payments for you. Customers would have to pay on the spot, over the phone or with another payment solution.
