Amazon.com Inc. has extended its U.S. restaurant delivery service to London, entering a fiercely competitive market as it seeks to capture more of Britons’ online food spending and expand the use of its same-day delivery app.

The free, one-hour service is available in certain post codes for the online retailer’s Prime customers, and includes restaurants such as Michelin-starred Benares, Levant, Strada and Crazy Bear. The service started in Amazon’s hometown of Seattle last year and is now in a dozen U.S. cities. It follows the online retailer’s June introduction of U.K. grocery deliveries under the Amazon Fresh banner.
