    Australian local business review site Rayv has launched a few new features, making the site even more useful to even more people.

    First of all they’ve expanded beyond Sydney into Brisbane. You can access the Brisbane site directly or you can navigate as normal to the homepage and switch between cities using the location drop down menu at the top right of the website.

    Interestingly, the location drop down menu has an option for country and a bunch of space under Brisbane, suggesting there’ll be more geographies covered by Rayv in the near future.

    The other prominent feature is that they’re now providing the ability to make live reservations at over 250 of Sydney’s most popular restaurants, with new restaurants being added on a weekly basis.

    You can now find your favourite restaurant, interact with its booking calendar in real-time and make your reservation online.  This is not a ‘wishlist’ booking. It’s real-time, guaranteed and powered by another Aussie startup, Dimmi, which is nice to see.

    Congrats to Ian McCallam and the team over at Rayv for making an excellent site even better.
