The Handbook

If you’re like us, you’re really missing London’s restaurant scene. We miss being able to slip off into the night and discovering the best of London’s international flavours and having these vibrant tastes dotted on every street corner.

But not all is lost, we can cherish the best of London’s foodie scene from the comfort of our living room and pjs thanks to the good ol’ invention of the takeaway.

Forget greasy noodles and oily curries in tins, we’re talking fine dining in our living room. From Michelin-star restaurants bringing their flavours to your sofa to health bars fuelling you through the pandemic with nourishing wellness bowls, here are 24 of our favourite restaurants opening their doors for delivery.

Hoppers 

If you’re on the search for rich, fragrant and authentic Sri Lankan cuisine, it’s always going to be Hoppers that you venture to. While their restaurants are currently closed, elevate your date night at home by ordering in the Taste of Hoppers for two. It’s jam packed with everything you could wish for, from Lamb Kothu Roti to Chicken Kari, Dal Kari to Sambols, plus pilau rice and roti to wipe it all up with. Pair alongside the Mutton Rolls, think slow cooked mutton and potatoes rolled in panko bread crumbs and deep fried. Yum.
