With the world on pause due to the Covid-19 coronavirus outbreak, venues are temporarily closed and Tokyo might even be placed under lockdown if people don't start taking preventative measures, such as staying at home and self-isolate. If you're practising self-quarantine and working from home – good on you – food delivery services are the best way to 'eat out' while you stay in.

Aside from the pizza places which are now offering zero-contact deliveries to help with social distancing, here are the most convenient and easy-to-use food delivery services in Tokyo. We've included a few English-friendly websites and apps, plus a couple of Japanese-only options if you want to explore more food choices.

RECOMMENDED: Stay indoors and experience Japan from your home

Did you know Uber Eats is available in both English and Japanese in Japan? Just head to the website or download the app and input your address to find out which restaurants and cafés deliver to your area. There's a huge range of options, whether you’re craving that late-night burger, a proper bowl of ramen or a refreshing bubble tea. Once your order is on the way, you can even track it via GPS and see the estimated arrival time on the app.

For something a little more upscale, FineDine can deliver fancy and gourmet meals to your door. It serves all of Tokyo plus selected areas in Kanagawa and Saitama. Orders can be placed either over the phone, online or through the app. Food options range from fancy fugu (pufferfish) courses and fresh-off-the-teppanyaki dishes to quality kaisendon, tempura soba and more. FineDine frequently adds new restaurants to its list, so check the site regularly.

Demae-can

Demae-can is a Japanese-only website and app boasting delivery from over 20,000 restaurants. With so much choice, it can be hard to decide what to eat, but luckily Demae-can's categories and suggestions make it easy to narrow things down, whether you're in the mood for Italian, Japanese or even dim sum. It's worth checking out the coupon page for some deep discounts.
