Is it safe to order food right now?

According to both the CDC (the United States’ Center for Disease Control) and the RKI (the German version of the CDC),it is generally safe to order food from restaurants. In fact, many delivery companies haveimplemented contactless delivery,so as long as you pay in advance by card, you won’t come in contact with the delivery person.There’s also not currently evidence of spread via prepared food, but we’ll update here if that changes.As always, hand-washing is paramount!

Best websites for ordering food in Berlin

My go-to website for ordering food in Berlin is Lieferando.de. I’ve used pretty much every website that used to operatein Berlin (RIP Deliveroo, RIP Foodora) but Lieferando.de is the one that ended up dominant. What I like about Lieferando.de:

  • You don’t need to create an account to order (or access your order history)
  • You can pay with just about anything (cash, credit, direct debit, paypal)
  • You can see a live map of where your delivery is at any time (so you know whether you need to hover by the door buzzer 😉)

That said, some of the local restaurants listed here are running their own delivery operations, so I’ll also belinking directly to their sites when applicable.

Without further ado, here are the best restaurants, bars, breweries, and cafes local to Berlinthat are taking delivery orders today.

Sushi Nami (Sushi) Favorite

Sushi Nami is hands down my favorite place to order sushi in Berlin.I have tried at least half a dozen spotsfor sushi in Berlin, and none of them have had the price-quality balance as spot-on as Sushi Nami.Delivery is generally quick, and the prices are really a good deal when it comes to sushi.My recommendation is to get a combination of special rolls and Nami rolls for a selectionthat is affordable and filling. Skip the nigiri, which only come with one piece.

Location: Wiener Strasse 24, 10999, Berlin (Kreuzberg)
Minimum order: 15 €
