 Chinese or Indian? Whatever you choose for your takeaway night, there’s no need to call up to get your favourite cuisine delivered to your door.

Calling up and ordering a takeaway is a thing of the past. If you’re not up to date with what takeaway apps are available, or your current takeaway app just isn’t delivering (no pun intended), we’ve put together a list of the best food delivery apps in the UK right now.

(Android, iOS)

If you’ve used Uber before, you’ll have no problem using Uber Eats. They’re different apps but share similar features, including estimated delivery times, driver tracking and cashless transactions. There’s a huge range of restaurants to choose from, and the standard delivery charge is only £2.50. You can even get McDonald’s delivered to your door via Uber Eats, perfect when you’re craving a Big Mac.

Plus, you’ll often see voucher codes for free delivery or money off your order, so you can save money while getting proper restaurant cuisine delivered.

(Android, iOS)

With thousands of restaurants signed up to Deliveroo including plenty of exclusives, there’s loads to love about Deliveroo. And with a huge fleet of delivery riders, it only takes an average of 32 minutes from ordering your feast to the food arriving at your door.


If you’re a bit of a foodie and love trying out new restaurants, give Deliveroo Plus a go. It’s a membership plan that costs only £11.49 a month, and for that, you get free delivery on all your orders. You’ll also find exclusive deals in partnership with the restaurants you love, so it’s the best way to get the most out of your chilled takeaway night.

(Android, iOS)

Just Eat is the best place to discover local gems that you’ve passed many times but never tried. There’s over 30,000 Just Eat restaurants a across the UK, and you can view all their menus in the app. If you’re not sure whether to try a new place, there are plenty of reviews from fellow customers on things like food quality and delivery time, so you always know what to expect.


The search feature is pretty handy too. If you’re really hungry and want dinner fast, you can find restaurants based on distance. Or, if you’re in the mood for a certain cuisine, you can narrow the search down to ‘Pizza’, ‘Indian’, ‘Kebab’ or whatever you fancy.

(Android, iOS)

Okay, this one’s not exactly a food delivery app, but it’s too good to not share (see what we did there?). Have you ever thought about how much perfectly edible food restaurants throw out at the end of the day? About a third of all food produced is wasted. The answer is Too Good to Go. Instead of throwing food in the bin, restaurants offer ‘Magic Bags’ of food at a huge discount, too be collected at a certain time. Plenty of restaurants and bakeries are signed up, and you could save loads of money while saving great food from going to waste. Some restaurants even offer 70% off meals!


You can search for your closest restaurant either by map or on a list. You won’t know exactly what food you’re getting until you go to collect it, but it’s bound to be delicious!


Those are our top food delivery and takeaway apps of 2019? Which one do you use? Is there one we’ve missed that you think deserves a mention? Let us know below

Umm.. that sure is hard but I would probably have to go with deliveroo and that is based on my location too. I have more deliveroo options than Uber Eat and Just Eat.
