12:51 (Around the Cluck)

Restaurants British Angel

They say: ‘So, this is something that has been in the background for a while now, and wasn’t expecting to launch in these uncertain times. Around the Cluck is a delivery service by Chef James Cochran, focusing on his famous buttermilk Jamaican jerk chicken. As well as chicken, we have vegetarian options, amazing sides and of course our famous scotch bonnet jam.’ 

Order via (3.5 mile radius), Deliveroo (2 mile radius), Uber Eats (2 mile radius).


Restaurants Middle Eastern Soho

Berenjak is restarting service with a load of new sites across London. It’s a smart move for London’s very own prince of Persia. It will be delivering its signature koobideh and jujeh kababs, and a selection of mazeh including its mast o khiar and kashk e bademjoom.

Berenjak East Delivery covers Clerkenwell, Hoxton, The City, Shoreditch, Whitechapel and Bethnal Green

Friday-Sunday only.

Bone Daddies

Restaurants Japanese Old Street
The cult Japanese restaurant group is launching its #BoneAtHome delivery and collection menu from early May from its Bermondsey and Old Street ramen bars. The menu features a selection of its signature ramens including Bone Daddies’ tonkotsu, T22, vegetarian mushroom ramen, plus its Korean fried chicken wings, sweet spicy pigs’ bones and tofu poke.

The full delivery and takeaway menu and order details are available on the BD website:


Restaurants Indian Bank

Brigadiers is reopening its kitchen to deliver Indian barbecue classics to the hungry masses. Okay, not the masses. The select few. Still, if you want a well-posh curry, you could do a LOT worse. Its delivery menu features the return of the Brigadiers original BBQ butter chicken wings and the Brigadiers mixed grill, while fresh Indian mangoes, currently in season, will be available for dessert.  

Areas covered include Covent Garden, Clerkenwell, Hoxton, The City, Shoreditch, Whitechapel and Bethnal Green, via Deliveroo.

Casa do Frango

Restaurants Portuguese Shoreditch

This chicken restaurant is still doing piri-piri chicken, plus Portuguese pastries and other stuff via Deliveroo from both its sites (Borough and Shoreditch). Also, they’re giving free meals to NHS staff. Nice one.

More details on its site.



Restaurants Indian Shoreditch

Dishoom is back in business doing deliveries from its branches in King’s Cross, Shoreditch and Kensington. They promise many of the café favourites, including street-food staple vada pau, chilli chicken and keema pau, plus hearty fodder like biryanis, chicken ruby, mattar paneer and Dishoom’s legendary house black daal. Plus, there are drinks, including the Thums Up, Limca and Pallonji’s Raspberry Soda. Everything will be available for delivery via Deliveroo from 11.30am to 10.30pm. As in the restaurants, Dishoom is donating a charity meal with every order. 

Dishoom to Your Door is available via Deliveroo now.


Restaurants Indian Spitalfields

Gunpowder has a new menu designed for sharing at home, including crispy pork ribs with tamarind sauce, organic tandoor baby chicken and fried Karwari soft shell crab. It’s also adapted some of its most popular dishes for takeaway. Maa’s Kashmiri lamb chops have been transformed into a more carry-out-friendly spiced curry and there are new weekly specials using cuts from the restaurant’s local meat supplier. There’s also dessert in the form of Gunpowder’s Old Monk rum pudding with custard, plus booze and stuff.

Gunpowder’s new menu launches Sat May 23. It’s available Thu-Fri, 4pm-8pm and Sat-Sun, noon-6pm. Collection from Gunpowder Spitalfields. Delivery through Slerp and Deliveroo. 


Hanoi Café

Restaurants Vietnamese Hoxton

In its owners’ own words, Hanoi Café offers ‘homemade Vietnamese cuisine in a relaxed atmosphere’, which is a pretty accurate description of this charming ‘mom and pop’ restaurant. Although it’s currently closed, it’s on Deliveroo, or email or WhatsApp (+971544452798) for collection. 

Honest Burgers x Brindisa
Honest Burgers x Brindisa

Honest Burgers

Restaurants Burgers Spitalfields

Honest Burgers are open for delivery across their numerous London branches. If that weren’t good enough news, they’re partnering with tapas kings Brindisa to bring you the limited-edition Chimichurri Burger, a hot mess of patty, chorizo, manchego, chipotle and chimichurri. With a side of rosemary chips, it’s £14, and frankly sounds like money well spent. It’s available until July 6 (though we could always start a petition to retain it).

Order on Deliveroo.

Order via Deliveroo.


Hot Stone

Restaurants Japanese Angel

For obvious reasons, Angel’s great cook-at-the-table steak and sushi joint is closed for now. However, it’s introduced not one but two fresh new delivery concepts: Makiboom and Momo Club London. The former does cutesy sushi in the shape of pandas and whatnot, and latter supplies delish Nepalese dumplings. They are also donating 10 percent of all sales to the NHS. Bravo!

Order via Deliveroo and Uber Eats.

Famous as a cash-only haunt serving up vegan Sichuan street food, Mao Chow has gone cashless for its bespoke delivery service during the coronavirus crisis. Here’s the drill: text 07593 824557 with your order, address and any delivery instructions; after that you’ll receive a confirmation message and link for payment; once payment has been completed your MC ‘cowboy’ will be on his way asap. 

Last orders for delivery, 9.30pm; delivery fee £3.99; minimum order £20; coverage, within one mile of the restaurant.

Patty & Bun

Restaurants Burgers London Fields

Restaurants Contemporary European Hackney

They say: ‘We’re scrounging and clawing to stay in existence and each day news updates inform what we both can and more importantly should do. So with that in mind, we’ve pivoted and we’re launching Peg Pick-Me-Up Kiosk. Thursday-Sunday 4pm to 9pm we’ll be down here cooking food & selling wine for you to take away.’

Follow their Insta for updates. 



Restaurants Contemporary European Hackney

Pidgin’s take on elegant seasonal European food has transmuted into Homing Pidgin (nice!) – like, Hackney’s swankiest food delivery service. Menus (Thursday-Sunday) are released for sale at 9pm on Sunday night, in a Glastonbury-style ticket frenzy. Unsurprisingly, they go fast, but the fastest-finger-first nonsense is well worth it (you’d only be on eBay cluttering up your flat otherwise). Hell, they even do Negronis. Delicious and fancy AF.

Restaurants British Spitalfields

Poppies Spitalfields has reopened, with the Soho and Camden branches following suit shortly. They will be open daily from noon to 8pm for takeaway, click and collect and delivery. The menu features the usual faves – battered haddock, pies, saveloy, battered sausage – all wrapped in Poppies’s quaint faux-newsprint, and all served with a portion of chips.


Quality Chop House

Restaurants British Clerkenwell

 QCH offshoot Quality Wines is offering a no-choice three-course menu for collection and delivery. It’s not cheap at £45 for two people, but it’s pretty fancy, with mains like venison-ragù pappardelle and desserts like chocolate torte. Chuck in one of their awesome bottles and staying in’s suddenly like going out. Available Wednesday to Saturday.

Collect from the Farringdon Road store, 5pm-7pm. Delivery available (£5) for postcodes within a three-mile radius of Farringdon Road, delivered between 5pm and 7pm that night.

Restaurants Thai Leytonstone

Singburi, a tiny family-run Thai café on a nondescript stretch of Leytonstone High Road, was constantly packed to the rafters with a discipleship of canny locals. Those same locals have prompted the venue (which is closed for now) to keep going with a takeaway menu revealed daily through the joint’s Instagram page. It’s like the internet never happened.


Restaurants Cafés Dalston

Delivery’s not just for dinner, you know. Dalston’s Snackbar is encouraging lunchtime self-isolating with deliveries of its rice bowls, toasties and more within a three-mile radius between 11am and 3pm. Have a power lunch!
