Greater Sydney is in lockdown. Everyone must stay home unless absolutely necessary. So, once again, restaurants, bars and cafes are shut for dine-in service. Show your support for them by ordering takeaway when you can – every little bit helps.

Beyond the following restaurants, there are a couple businesses helping Sydneysiders eat better at home. Premium meal delivery platform Providoor has launched, connecting diners with restaurant-quality heat-and-eat feasts prepared by leading Sydney restaurants including Cirrus, Monopole, Yellow, The Apollo, Cho Cho San, Icebergs Dining Room and Bar, Golden Century, Spice Temple, Rockpool and Cicciabella.

Some great restaurants also use the Bopple app to deliver their food (or for you to place an order), and P&V Newtown and Paddington are stocking great snacks and packs alongside its ace booze. And Drnks has some fun food packs too.

We'll be updating this live list throughout Sydney's lockdown, so keep checking back for new options: this is the definitive guide to who’s selling what, from heat-and-serve meals to pre-mixed cocktails.

With the CBD currently bereft of office workers, Kitchen By Mike has had to shut its doors. So its reintroduced Kitchen By Mike At Home – huge family-sized meal boxes. Boxes include Mike's renowned sourdough bread, some sides and hefty mains such as chicken cacciatore and Wagyu beef shin stout pie. And delivery is free within 10 kilometres of the CBD.

Chaco Ramen


The huge, tasty soups at Chaco Ramen are unlike anything else in Sydney. And it's staying open for takeaway during this lockdown. There are two ways to get your ramen fix. You can stop by for takeaway (or send an Instagram message to order ahead) – or, consider ordering a frozen DIY ramen pack for home delivery. Make sure to add a bottle of sake and some gyoza to your order, too.

Sonora in Potts Point is doing takeaway from Thursday to Sunday. The same standout tacos, quesadillas and Margaritas are all here, plus Tecate and a tight selection of funky wines to go with them. But we (strongly) suggest a Fiesta pack, complete with a flagon of Margarita. Pre-order here.

37 Bayswater Road, Potts Point

Lankan Filling Station


LFS' takeaway offering was one of last year's lockdown standouts. Now, it's back (hopefully not for long) and selling curries, dahls, roti and its signature hoppers – and it's almost all available pre-packaged, too, so you can choose it between eating it warm or heating your meal up later on. Plus, there are wines and cocktails to order and a range of condiments and curry powders to buy too.

We could all use a bit of warmth from the roaring wood-oven at Fred’s right about now. Luckily, the team is putting together select dishes for takeaway, every Saturday.

380 Oxford Street, Paddington

Ormeggio at the Spit


Last lockdown, this Mosman institution took the time to reinvent itself into a southern Italian-style osteria. This time, it’s doing trattoria versions of its signature dishes: lobster spaghetti, handmade piadina with prawns, and a braised whole lamb shoulder. A family box for $250 feeds four to six people – for a day or two at least. Lasagnes and hand-rolled gnocchi by Chiosco, plus Ormeggio’s epic gelato are also available. Order here.

Online ordering here.

If you didn’t get a chance to try one of Matt Whiley’s revolutionary cocktails before lockdown, fear not – he’s put them in bottles. Try the Saint Peter-inspired Martini with Tanqueray gin, Ketel One vodka, Yarra Valley trout roe, Cavendish banana and Junmai Nama Genshu sake. It’s crazy but it works. There’s a range of creations in 100- and 500-mil sizes. You can also do a four-drink bundle, and there are beers, wine and back-shelf spirits available for pick-up and delivery.

Throw in a 20-gram nugget of fresh black truffle for liberal shaving. Pickup only, Thursday to Saturday.

56 Pirrama Road, Pyrmont

Cho Cho San


The intimate, low-lit vibes of this well-loved Potts Point restaurant will be tough to match at home. But you can give it a shot with hibachi-grilled prawns with kombu butter, colourful sashimi platters and thick-sliced Kurabota pork-loin tonkatsu. Japanese lagers, house-made yuzushu (yuzu liquer) and cocktails for two will assist. Order here.

Cantina Ok!


We don’t think it’s a stretch to count this tiny, standing-room-only joint among the world’s best tequila and mezcal bars. It’s not just about the sheer range on offer. It’s the encyclopaedic knowledge in-house that sets the bar so, so high. Now, you can order a taste to take home. Fair warning: these drinks ain’t cheap. But every drop is worth it. Stand around in your pyjamas and sip slow.

The latest addition to the Ho Jiak family is still running its takeaway menu, so now's the perfect time to try it. Go for soy-braised pork belly, a deceptively simple king-prawn black-pepper curry, or a nostalgic soup of hand-pounded fish balls in a delicate clear broth.

The Paddington


The weather's been pretty lousy recently and well, you know, it's lockdown. So a classic roast chook seems like a sensible option. And the ones at the Paddington are some of the best you'll find. We reckon you should go for one of the family packs, which comes with plenty of sides.
