The best takeaway in Hong Kong? Team Sassy weighs in with their favourite food delivery options.
Staying in might be the new going out, but that doesn’t mean we have to sacrifice our love of good food. So dining out after 6pm may be a no go, but luckily for us, many of the city’s restaurants, big and small, have takeout or food delivery services that enable us to continue our gourmet adventures in the comfort of our own homes. At a time when the hospitality industry is taking a huge hit, indulging in a takeaway fix is a great way to show some solidarity and support. Besides, who are we to say no to a night off from cooking?
With this in mind, we thought we’d share with you some food delivery inspiration, courtesy of Team Sassy. Keep reading to discover our favourite takeaways in Hong Kong.

Team Sassy’s Favourite Hong Kong Takeaways
Why I love it: While 11 Westside is a favourite date night place of mine, I have to admit I am a true homebody at heart. So most of the time I enjoy its food from the comfort of my couch, complete with an episode of A Million Little Things.
My must-order dish: Always the Guacamole ($190). I have been known to eat the whole thing and leave nothing for my husband. We’re also fans of the Al Pastor Taco ($58) and Carne Asada Fries ($164), which usually both make their way on to our order.

Why I love it: Indian Spices has quickly become a go-to in our house. The meals are delicious, and there are some great deals and combo sets.
My must-order dish: Lamb Vindaloo ($125) and a side of Garlic Naan ($22).

Le Petit Saigon
Why I love it: The Le Petit Saigon takeaway menu isn’t huge, but the selection it does have is really good. It has the best tofu bánh mì I’ve had outside Vietnam (and probably ever!). My advice? Don’t skimp on the sides, the Potato Gems (basically mini hash browns) come with a delicious spicy mayo dipping sauce. The whole experience is both flavourful and comforting at the same time.
My must-order dish: The Bánh Mì Chay (Tofu Bánh Mì, $98) with a side of Potato Gems With Spicy Mayo ($68).
Available for self-pick up, or delivery via Black Sheep GO.
Why I love it: Hungry Korean is excellent value for money, as well as being super fresh and tasty. You can’t beat a good warm and satisfying soup with a helping of kimchi!
My must-order dish: Soft Tofu Soup ($62) with a side of Japchae ($50).
Why I love it: Chickpea is a great option for when you want something on the healthier side, but still need something filling and flavourful. They’ve also got some great combo deals for when you’re feeling particularly peckish.
My must-order dish: Their hearty Hummus Bowls always hit the spot, I usually go for the one with pulled beef ($108). If you’re ordering with a friend, I’d recommend adding on some Halloumi Saucy Fries ($88) to share.
Why I love it: The food at Missy Ho’s is always fresh and warm when it arrives, and the taste is consistent whenever I order from here.
My must-order dish: My favourite is the Tempura Prawn Roll ($158).
Jess N’s Pick
Why I love it: My go-to for a treat day. The fusion flavours are always on point and, considering the generous portions, it’s great value for money too. I recommend ordering with a friend so you can go all out with the sides.
My must-order dish: Chicken Banh Mi ($58) with a side of Kimchi Fries ($45). I also love the Tteokbokki ($58), which comes with moreish bacon bits!
Available for self-pick up or delivery directly – head here to order.
Seoul Bros (Central), UG/F, 66 Hollywood Road (entrance on Elgin Street), Central, Hong Kong, 2793 5703
Why I love it: It’s not the most healthy choice but you can’t go wrong with a great pizza option. I don’t eat this everyday, of course, but this is my go-to comfort food in any situation – especially now! Paisano‘s is a tried-and-tested Sassy favourite; good selection, reliable taste and doesn’t break the bank either. Pizza perfect!
My must-order dish: I’m a regular “Four-Cheese” ($45 per slice) orderer every single time. On very special occasions, I might throw in a side of fries ($22) for an extra carb-overload once the baby is asleep.
Available for self-pick up or delivery via foodpanda.

Other Ways To Support Your Favourite Restaurants
So your favourite restaurant doesn’t do takeaway or deliver to you because of where you live? Or perhaps it’s so small, delivery just isn’t an option. No matter, there are still plenty of other ways to show your support. If you feel comfortable doing so, stop by for lunch instead. Alternatively:
- How about buying a gift voucher for use in the future? You’ll be giving them some much needed revenue when it matters most and you’ll get to look forward to a tasty celebratory meal when this is all over.
- Head onto OpenRice, TripAdvisor or Facebook and leave a review for the bars and restaurants you love. We’re sure you rely on reviews as much as we do!
- Make an effort to engage with any content that your favourite venues are continuing to share on social media. The more likes and comments they get, the more likely they are to grab the attention of others who are able to order from them at this time.
