Due to the current evolving situation, there has been a greater demand for takeaways when it comes to dining in Singapore. In light of that, there is also a recent surge in demand for food deliveries. While many ride sharing and food apps can bring orders to your doorstep, many of the establishments presented there allow for deliveries up to a certain radius only. This list on the other hand was created to focus on those dining establishments that do islandwide delivery – many for FREE as long as you hit a certain spending threshold.
Rather than coming up with some run-of-the-mill list, this particular one draws from my own personal experiences. I have personally tried the dishes mentioned here and can recommend the efficiency of delivery as well as freshness and taste of the food after reaching my door.

One of the most dependable food delivery establishments in my view, Grain kept me nourished during my 14-day stay-home notice. A friend recommended it to me and I ended up being quite addicted to their food that half of my meals during those 2 weeks were from them. For a delivery-focused establishment (even long before this current situation) and given their focus on healthier meals, the price point is quite reasonable. I was hooked to their version of the Basil Thunder Tea Rice (S$10.95) which was flavorful and had a sweetness that I normally don’t find in this dish as well as their Caramelised Beef Char Siew (S$12.95).
Grain has also recently partnered with KOI and you can now order your favorite bubble teas from Grain as well.
Operating Hours: 11AM to 2PM, 6PM to 9:30PM
Delivery details: Minimum spend of S$10. They charge a S$4 delivery fee for the central areas as far east as Simei, as far north as Hougang and Ang Mo Kio and as far west as Bukit Batok and Jurong East. Anything beyond that entails a S$16 delivery surcharge.

Mandarin Orchard Singapore (Chatterbox & Shisen Hanten)
Mention the dish “chicken rice” and Chatterbox’s take on this ubiquitous Singaporean staple is sure to appear in any list. The dining outlets of Mandarin Orchard Singapore, including Chatterbox, is offering dishes for takeaway at 50% off. Diners can also indulge in a 2 Michelin star meal at home with Shisen Hanten’s takeaway menu. Aside from the Chen’s Mapo Tofu Donburi (S$15), there’s also the popular Roasted London Duck (S$40 for whole) and Stir-Fried Prawn with Mala Sauce (S$21).
Specially for takeaways and deliveries, Mandarin Orchard Singapore has prepared bento box sets which allow diners to try the myriad of specialties without having to order individual dishes. For Chatterbox, the Chatterbox Signature Bento (S$34 for 2) comes with abalone-topped kolo mee, crispy tofu and rojak alongside the chicken rice.

Grand Park Orchard (Mitzo & Bar Canary)
Their inhouse restaurant, Mitzo, is well known for its creative take on Chinese cuisine as well as its dimsum brunch. Now, diners can bring home that experience with Grand Park Orchard’s comprehensive takeaway menu which includes both fine-dining type of dishes (think: poached rice with lobster meat) to tried and tested roasts like Mitzo Special Barbecued Pork (S$18+) or the Crispy Pork Belly (S$18+). I personally tried the latter two when these were delivered to me. I was amazed to find the pork belly skin still crispy even after the journey from Orchard Road!
Those who miss going for drinks can also avail of Mitzo’s cocktail-to-go. Conveniently delivered in packets, drinks like the Moutai Aperitivo and Mitzo’s Old Fashioned are sure to evoke that bar atmosphere, even at home.

While many cafes have been forced to close due to stricter measures, establishments that have a strong food offering are still allowed to operate. Baristart is one of those places one can still turn to for the cafe experience, albeit for takeaways or deliveries only. Their Hokkaido milk-based drinks are still available as is their popular cream puff and even the rice bowls. Currently, only the outlet in Tras Street is open. There is a 10% discount for takeaways while islandwide delivery is offered through their partnership with Grab.
Operating Hours: Daily from 8AM to 9PM
Delivery details: Available islandwide via GrabFood.
Regent Singapore (Basilico, Summer Palace, Manhattan and Basilico)
Rarely can a “full” dining experience be had from just one establishment but Regent Singapore capitalizes on its strong F&B by offering exactly that. Diners can choose to have an Italian pizza while adding a Chinese dish, cocktail or two and even a cake for their delivery. With one ordering platform, diners can cross-order between the different outlets. Over at Basilico, I personally enjoyed the Black Truffle and Robiola Cheese Pizza (Focaccina con Tartufo Nero e Robiola, S$29.91). Even after keeping it for 2 days and microwaving it, the pizza retained its truffle fragrance with the robiola cheese oozing out with every bite.
Operating Hours: Daily between 11AM to 10PM
Delivery details: Free islandwide delivery for a minimum of S$100; minimum S$30 for delivery with charge
For coffee lovers out there who still need their caffeine fix at home, Spinelli Coffee Company is making their coffee (both drip coffee and roasted beans) available for delivery. Best of all, this islandwide free delivery is applicable for a minimum spend of just S$30 which is a steal. This is especially needed now that many dedicated coffee shops are closed. Aside from their Arabica coffee, Spinelli can also accommodate some food items in the delivery order (i.e. cakes, sandwiches, etc) but food orders need to be conveyed via special instruction.
Delivery details: Free delivery islandwide for a minimum S$30
Grand Copthorne Waterfront Singapore (Grissini, Food Capital and Grand Shanghai)
With 3 dining outlets, Grand Copthorne Waterfront Singapore offers some of the most reasonably-priced dishes for what is considered upscale dining. Most of Grissini’s dishes for instance, are less than S$20 each, while Food Capital’s bento boxes go for just a little bit over S$8 each. Must-orders here include the Linguini alle Vongole (SS13.50 for My Millennium members) and the New Zealand Ribeye Steak (S$19.17 for My Millennium members). Their rectangular-shaped pizzas (good for 2) with flavors ranging from Four Cheese to Prosciutto di Parma are going for just $13.50 (My Millennium members) – even cheaper than Pizza Hut!
Operating Hours: Daily from 11AM to 8PM
Delivery details: Guests are required to place the orders as takeaways first online and then call the hotel to arrange for delivery (additional fees may apply)
Raffles Hotel Singapore (yi by Jereme Leung, Butcher’s Block, Tiffin Room, The Grand Lobby, Writers Bar, Raffles Patisserie)
Among the many restaurants offering takeaways and deliveries in Singapore, the dining outlets of Raffles Hotel remain remarkably true to their original menus. yi by Jereme Leung, for instance, stays true to its focus on provincial Chinese cuisine with the likes of their Stir-fried Pork Belly (S$26), Sauteed Xinjiang Style Lamb Tenderloin (S$38) and Hundred Ring Cucumber (S$28). These were the same dishes I tried when I dined at yi by Jereme Leung at their debut late last year.
Raffles Hotel Singapore also has a great deal where you can even potentially earn back the cost of your orders. Customers will receive a S$50 dining voucher that can be used at any of the hotel’s restaurants, spa, floral boutique or at the Raffles Boutique; for every order of a minimum spend of S$25.

If you prefer to stock up in your fridge and would rather not worry about the short shelf-life of cooked food, CP Food has a good assortment of ready-to-cook items which entail as little effort as a quick run in the microwave. I thoroughly enjoyed the CP Spaghetti with Chicken Sauce (S$5.50) as well as their variety of nuggets (the Japanese Crispy Gyoza in particular, which goes for S$5.90 per bag, got my attention). While you can easily get CP products from most supermarkets, those who would rather not waste their time queuing or have to worry about social distancing in public areas can avail of their delivery service. Free delivery can be arranged for a minimum spend of just S$89 – quite attainable since their frozen items can be kept for months.

The Capitol Kempinski Singapore
This luxury property is notable for its relatively low minimum to qualify for delivery – at just S$40 – as well as its reasonable delivery fee of only S$5. Given its affiliation with the Capitol Building, the hotel actually has plenty of F&B outlets under its wing so cross-cuisine ordering is definitely possible here. Given its German roots, there are some cuisines here that are not easily found elsewhere in the island including the German sensibilities of Frieda to the exotic flavors of Thailand with Chalerm Thai. There’s also the Asian fusion 15 Stamford by Alvin Leung as well as La Scala for Italian cuisine. Recommended dishes here include the Oven-roasted Pork Knuckle (S$49), Pork Prime Rib Bak Kut Teh (S$44), Grilled Sausage Platter (S$37) and the tangy Green Mango Prawn Salad (S$12).

Toktok is one of the few outlets specializing in Indonesian cuisine that provides for islandwide food delivery. The archipelago’s rich culinary traditions can now be sent straight to your home in fuss-free bento boxes filled with favorites such as Tempeh, Ayam Penyet, Nasi Kuning and more. For a mix of dishes, I personally recommend the Nasi Campur Bali (S$13) or Nasi Kuning (S$12.50). 10% discount applies for in-store pick-ups (they have outlets in Paya Lebar Square, 313@Somerset and Ann Siang Road.

Over at the Michelin-starred Summer Pavilion, check out the Poached Rice with Lobster (S$26.75). You can also order drinks to go along with your meals, such as Colony’s Negroni (S$13) which is packed in a cute little bottle. You can order the Ritz Carlton selection through Chope or Grab.

Available in 1 rib (S$42), 2 ribs (S$78) or 4 ribs (S$138) servings, the ribs also come with a corresponding 1,2 or 4 sides ranging from their signature Mac and Cheese to the White Oreo Cheesecake so it’s definitely value-for-money. Cross-ordering between outlets is also possible so if you prefer something from The Kitchen Table or even some nibbles or drinks from Woobar, you can combine your orders with the beef ribs. I have personally tried the beef ribs and can wholeheartedly recommend it. Each rib is good for 2 persons, and you can see the marbling with the meat fibers alternating with the fat.

Singapore Marriott Tang Plaza
Singapore Marriott Tang Plaza is offering takeaways through its dining outlets, most notably in its popular Chinese restaurant, Wan Hao, as well as the alfresco Crossroads located at the Orchard-Scotts intersection. The hotel has partially standardized prices when it comes to its takeaway offerings, with S$15 bentos in Wan Hao and S$15 dishes at Crossroads. In addition, the items in both outlet’s regular ala carte menus are now at 30% off. I have personally tried Wan Hao’s S$15 bentos and Crossroads’ S$15 items. I went over to Wan Hao during the first week of circuit breaker and found business still brisk with a number of customers waiting to pick up their orders. My S$15 bento came with rice, pork ribs with mandarin orange sauce, sauteed prawn with truffle sauce, vegetables and a generously portioned mango pomelo sago as dessert. Over at Crossroads, items such as the Char Hor Fun are up for S$15 as well or items from their regular menu such as the Australian Beef Steak Sandwich (S$28 before discount) comes with 30% off.
