Sometimes, we can’t leave the house. Sometimes, we can’t muster the energy to cook. Either way, don’t fret, because we’ve rounded up the city’s best food delivery options! Whether you’re looking for a high-end roast or merely craving a curry, get ready to have a delicious meal delivered to your door. Plus, with the new COVID restrictions in play, now is as good a time as any to get acquainted (or reacquainted) with some of Hong Kong’s best delivery and takeaway menus!
Food delivery via app
Whoever invented the food delivery app deserves a medal. It’s so easy (most of the time). Note that some areas of Hong Kong, like outlying islands and Discovery Bay, are not serviced by these apps, so check to make sure your area is covered before you rely on a delivery service. Here are your options for food delivery apps:
GO by Black Sheep Restaurants
Some of the city’s most delicious venues are on this app. Instead of participating in the bigger apps, Black Sheep restaurants created their own. You can order delivery or pick up via the GO app. They often have good promos and deals across different restaurants. Download via the App Store or Google Play.
One of the city’s more popular delivery apps. We like it because you can search by area and cuisine. You can find local eats but also decide you want to be healthy and see what options are available. They also have some specials available. Download via the App Store or Google Play
Non-app food delivery
Not all delivery is facilitated via apps. You can also call direct to restaurants – this is especially relevant for those living in areas where food delivery apps aren’t servicing.

The JIA Group is responsible for famous eats, such as dim sum favourite Duddell’s, and now offers delivery from its venues. You can order meal sets for singles or groups, plus there’s the option to order from their selection of wines and bubbles. It’s a one-stop-shop for a special meal at home. jiacatering.com
Time for a roast? Get one from the Mandarin Oriental, delivered to your door. Choose from the likes of US Prime Tenderloin Beef Wellington, Iberico Pork Rack, Wicks Manor Ham and more – plus trimmings, of course. Each roast serves a minimum of four to six people. Other offerings including a combo of curries with rice, breads … and six bottles of pale ale! Note: you’ll need to be organised, as all orders must be placed with 72 hours’ notice. Place your order via this link.
From the founder of Pacific Gourmet and The Butchers Club comes Steak King, offering top quality food ingredients for gourmet home cooking. There’s everything from seafood paella (with a free pan!) to a wagyu beef Wellington and more. steak-king.com
Something to drink?
You’ll need something to wash all that tasty food down! LAIBA is a premium craft-bottled cocktail brand that provides high-quality bottled cocktails to wherever you’re at. There’s eveything from a Bloody Mary to Cold Brew Martini, all made from natural ingredients with no artifical additives. Read our review for more details!

What to do if you live on an outlying island
Unfortunately, the delivery apps don’t cover the breadth of Hong Kong. If your area isn’t covered by an app or the larger chains that are available in the metro areas, contact your local restaurant for delivery direct from the source. In areas like Discovery Bay, local restaurants have their own delivery services. Just call the restaurant direct.
