New Zealand has done an incredible job at uniting against COVID-19 and getting through the lockdown. Now that we are now in level two, our city centre restaurants have reopened so you can dine with a great atmosphere, but their food delivery Auckland wide and takeaway offerings still stand. We've made a list of some of the best new takeaway and food delivery servies Auckland has to offer. You can also browse our list of city centre eateries offering meal kit deliveries and premade meals.



&Sushi makes picture-perfect sushi... and it tastes soooo good too! Go for a 7 pack of assorted sushi or one of their many donburi options, the teriyaki king salmon donburi is looking pretty good to us. Pair this with a miso soup and some kimchi and you have yourself the perfect meal.

Miss Clawdy


Fried Chicken, mac & cheese, Po'boys, tacos! Do we need to list any more? Miss Clawdy's is serving up south and central American delights, and we're not sure what to choose! Will it be the Baja tacos? The crispy Cajun eggplant? Or maybe the Jambalaya? We don't know yet, but we will definitely be ordering a few slices of the New York Cheesecake for dessert.

Ima Cuisine


Have the Ima experience at home! Ima’s shared menu will be available for delivery and pickup as well as their famous hot cross buns and other delicious homely desserts. The star of the show are their entertaining add-ons such as hummus, babgonush, spanakopita and other little pastries to have at home with your favourite drink!



Amano’s takeaway menu is hard to go past. From amazing pasta to seafood, meat and vegetable dishes, everything is top quality. We are thinking the Burrata, sweetcorn & fermented chilli to start, then followed by the pappardelle with lamb ragu & olive for the main affair, finishing it all off with the lemon, ricotta & blueberry cannolo.

Sumthin Dumplin


It's been tough waiting for the next moment we can eat Sumthin Dumplin's mouthwatering dumplings and now the wait is over! Offering both pick-up and delivery, you can now order your favourite dumplings to have at home. We are going straight for a pack of The OG and the Three Spice Prawn... and probably a serving of The Monk too.




The chefs at Baduzzi most definitely know their way around a kitchen with top quality meals gracing the tables in their beautiful restaurant. During alert level three, you can bring some of Baduzzi's favourite dishes right to your own dining room table by pick-up or delivery. Eggplant Parmigiana, lamb meatballs and cannelloni are some of the options to choose from or if you're having trouble making the decision on what to order pick the Italian feast (designed for four people) where the team will create a meal with a selection of their best offerings! 

SOUL Bar & Bistro


Waterfront favourite, SOUL Bar & Bistro’s SOUL-to-go menu is just what we need! Open daily from 5pm for delivery and pick-up you can order small plates such as salt & pepper squid with almond skordalia and chilli oil or bigger plates like macaroni cheese with ham off the bone and parmesan crust or beer battered tarakihi with salt & vinegar red rascals, parsley and lemon. Feeling like a cocktail? SOUL-to-go is also offering pre-made cocktail bases for you to complete at home with your favourite spirit! 

Hello Beasty


Open from Wednesday to Saturday, Hello Beasty’s pick-up and takeaway menu does not disappoint. Choose to order individual dishes from their extensive online menu or select a dinner pack. Dinner packs are available for up to four people and change daily, for an idea of what to expect the April 29th dinner pack features slow-cooked Sichuan lamb shoulder, charred broccolini with yuzu kosho mayo + kombu, spring onion flat bread, and steamed rice. 



Open for dinner and lunch on selected days, Cassia’s mouth-watering meals will be available for us to chow down on from the comfort of our own homes. With plenty of options for all dietary requirements, Cassia’s menu will be a ‘bubble’ pleaser. Plus, each week a new dessert will be on offer, for week one (starting 28 April) mango custard with passionfruit and coconut is the tasty treat to add to your order!



Order from Misters new winter season menu for delivery and pick-up. Misters’ meals include both breakfast and lunch dishes and are known for their wholesome and tasty bowls. For breakfast, we think the French toast with berry and hazelnut looks particularly appealing, and it’s hard to go past the Bali bowl for lunch – organic red and brown rice, lemongrass peanut satay, cabbage and sesame slaw, organic probiotic dressing, tamarind and organic kumara crisp. 

Pizza Presto


To satisfy our pizza cravings, we are heading straight to Pizza Presto’s website! Available for both pick-up and delivery you can get your hand on all of Pizza Presto’s best pizzas and desserts. Go for a standard 12inch pizza or if you’re extra hungry grab a metre long pizza.
