Bangkok has already seen a decline in tourism, and our hospitality industry is suffering as the country goes into de facto lockdown. That’s putting a major squeeze on local restaurants. But just because you’re stuck at home doesn’t mean you have to eat Mama noodles. Some of Bangkok’s best restaurants have started offering delivery for the first time. Here’s what you need to know.
Home to one of Bangkok’s juiciest burgers, 25 Degrees is offering its menu for takeaway or delivery each day from 11am-10pm. To order, call 02-352-4192 or text the official Line account (@25Degreesbkk).
Chef Chalee Kader will be offering his full menu from 100 Mahaseth, plus some awesome one-off dishes from a couple of his delivery-only businesses. Those include chicken or beef pho (B200-300) served with bone marrow from Pho Marrow, and corned beef pies with runny eggs (B120), banana flambe pies (B125) and drool-worthy apple pies (B60) from Holy Moly. Order those pies from Holy Moly by phone at 089-000-6659 or on any of the popular food delivery apps (Foodpanda, Get, Lineman, Grab). You can get your 100 Mahaseth fix courtesy of Lineman.
This family-run Greek restaurant is keeping the good vibes rolling with a delivery menu of chicken gyros (B350), hummus with pita (B250) and mixed grill platters (B850) featuring chicken souvlaki, kofta souvlaki, pork meatballs, grilled veggies and French fries.

According to Jarrett Wrisley, the former food writer and co-founder of Appia, Peppina and Soul Food Mahanakorn, “The sit-down restaurant is in a time of absolute peril, worldwide.” He’s not wrong. In order to keep sending you great food, all the folks at Appia, Eat Me, Err, Bo.lan, Bunker, Peppina
and Soul Food Mahanakorn
are teaming up to offer takeaway and delivery meals.
Contact the restaurants via their official Line IDs (@appia.bkk, @bunker.bkk, @eatmereservatons, @errbangkok, @peppina33, @soulfoodmahanakorn), and they will send you a menu and meal deals. From there, place your order and pay via bank transfer, and they’ll send a Grab courier to your door.
Why the extra steps? “Delivery services charge us, the restaurants, 30 percent or more for your order. And, right now, we need everything we can get to work through this difficult time, so that we might share meals together again.”
Craving some smoked meats? You can order from the restaurant menu or stock up on meats and sides. Think kilos of brisket and pulled pork, and sides of mac and cheese. Delivery is available via Lineman and Foodpanda Tue-Fri from 3-10:30pm, and Sat-Sun from 10am-10:30pm. If you’re out of the delivery zone—even as far away as Minburi or Chaengwattana—Ash Kickers can still arrange delivery. Call 02-120-4088 or 065-120-2018 for details.

These three restaurants have joined forces to prepare delivery out of Issaya’s main kitchen. In the mood for noodles? Hit up Baan Padthai for their Phadthai Jay (B152) followed by something sweet, like the Xa La Bao Durian (B128). If you’re bonkers about pineapple, order Casa Sapparod’s vegetarian fried rice (B176) or the kanom jeen sao nam (B270). For a romantic evening in, Issaya’s got you covered with its pretty miang yellowfin tuna tartlet (B280) and decadent chicken massaman (B720).
