Prerequisites

  • Python
  • Selenium
  • Chrome Browser and Chrome Driver
  • VPN and the Browser extension for the VPN should be installed in your Chrome browser.
  • Beautiful Soup.
  • Change the driver path in the script to match yours.

Notes

  • Avoid making too many requests. There is a limit and a blocker for webscraping implemented by grab.com that’s why you need to increase the timeout.
  • Vpn location can be any country in Asia.
  • Selenium is highly unstable, so at times you might get some errors. Do not fret 🙂 just restart the script.
  • Running the driver as Headless strangely doesn’t work properly because of the proxy problem and since i am using a vpn extension you need to use actual proxy addresses to get it working. So the GUI has to pop up. 👀
  • You can adjust the sliced_links depending on how many restaurants longitude and latitude you want to scrape.
