London’s restaurants may have temporarily closed their doors, but if you’ve had enough of supermarket spag bol you can take advantage of a new trend: restaurant home delivery. Companies such as Deliveroo (who are now offering a no-contact drop-off service) already provide extensive London coverage, but some of London’s best restaurants are taking matters into their own hands. From Italian to Chinese, here’s our pick, if you fancy eating in style while self-isolating – just remember that details change all the time, so always check with the venues’ websites and social channels for the latest info.

If your restaurant is currently open for deliveries or takeaways, tell us! helplondon@timeout.com

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.

Poppies

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.

Santa Maria

Restaurants Pizza Fulham

In London, you’ll be hard-pressed to find better, more traditional Neapolitan pizza than at Santa Maria, who have spearheaded a renaissance for the doughy staple from their base in Ealing for a few years now, picking up plenty of accolades along the way. Branches are now serving via Deliveroo for a decidedly upmarket cardboard box on your lap.

Singburi

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.

Sushisamba x Duck & Waffle

Restaurants Fusion Covent Garden

In what has to be the most bougie home delivery service this side of the three wise men turning up bearing gifts, Sushisamba and Duck & Waffle in Covent Garden have teamed up to deliver the picks of their respective menu to selected postcodes via Supper. Hold on to your hatsies – options include a whole chicken for just south of 60 quid, and a kobe beef churrasco for £337 (and you still have to reheat it at home!). As they say in those adverts for cruises, create some memories…

Spice Box

Restaurants Indian Walthamstow

The owner of this enterprising Indian vegan spot was determined to keep the residents of E17 well fed and originally ran the delivery service as a one-woman show. Luckily Uber Eats has now taken over and increased the coverage.
