You can still tuck into these takeaways.
You know the drill. Restaurants are closed to dine in and we’re encouraged to stay at home, so it’s takeaways all the way! Plus, not only do you get delicious food to your door but you can help support local, independent food businesses. Win-win. Sadly, not all restaurants are open for takeaway but if you want some of your favourite flavours and cuisines delivered then check out some of the best restaurants doing food delivery in Birmingham.
The burger legends that are The Original Patty Men will still be bringing you their epic burgers, wings and fries but delivering to your door instead. You can still get your hands on the Alabama Slammer with a deep fried boneless chicken thigh, lime and ginger slaw, and either Alabama sauce or Frank’s hot sauce; the Pineapple Express with a beef patty, maple coated bacon, roquito chilli peppers, cheddar cheese and pineapple hot sauce; and the Po Money, Po Mushroom with Po boy style breaded ‘shrooms, pickle and cajun Boss Man sauce.
Buffalo chicken aficionados rejoice as you can still feast on glorious fried chicken, and when it comes to the chicken at BONEHEAD, theirs comes in all shapes and spices. When it’s hot, it’s HOT. Grab a glass of milk from the fridge to prepare yourself for the Nashville seasoning. Sprinkle the rest in molten cheese, gallons of hot sauce, sweet pickles and, my friends, you have yourselves a kickin’ burger. There’s a chickpea alternative for the veggies, and a host of craft beers to wash the heat down. Best of all with this Birmingham restaurant delivering is that the sofa is not too far away for the post-BONEHEAD food coma.
3. Cherry Reds
Don’t fancy the same old breakfast everyday? Or do you feel like having pancakes as a weekend treat but flour is out of stock at the supermarket? Hang tight as Cherry Reds have got breakfast covered. Whether you want stacks of decadent pancakes topped with Biscoff or Oreos or a good old fry up like their Big Red Breakfast, the Birmingham restaurant is delivering the breakfast of champions to your area. And we sure need some pancakes, and a medal, for getting through lockdown 3.0. You can also order beers, milkshakes, cake and more to be delivered to your home.
If you’ve been missing your bao bun and rice bowl dishes dearly, fear not. Tiger Bites Pig is the spot for you. Throw in some pak choi and oyster mushrooms and fragrant aubergine for sides and there’s some cracking lockdown grub available to ease you through the boredom. Choose from bao buns with fillings such as pork belly; beef shin; crispy fragrant duck; or sesame and chilli tofu, to name a few.
They can take our lives, but they will never deprive us of curry night. Thankfully, that’s the case in Birmingham anyway. Full of Chaat is at our service and we are eternally grateful. If we had to go an entire lockdown without something spicy then… well, I don’t know what we’d do. But at least we won’t have to find out. Full of Chaat is delivering a variety of meat, vegetarian and vegan curries which you can stock up in your fridge or freezer, with each dish served with fluffy rice, mint yoghurt and chutney of the week. You can also throw in some samosas and naan breads for good measure. Orders are delivered on a Saturday and you can order between three and ten dishes. Better make space in the freezer…
You can order by simply sending an email to Full of Chaat, for more information on delivery you can find out here.
If you still want a slice of the action but from your humble abode, pizza restaurant POLI in Kings Heath, south of Birmingham, is delivering some fine pizzas to your door.

Plus, you can even order ice cream sandwiches by Happy Endings to well and truly finish your meal in style and comfort.
8. The Plough
Praise the Lord, praise thee who kept this pub open for lockdown delivery. Yes, this villagey pub in Harbourne has announced they are continuing with providing classic British comfort food and more to the people of Birmingham. The Plough is offering Sunday Roasts for collection via their website and you can pre-order a mighty meal such as roast sirloin of beef with Yorkshire pudding, roast potatoes, cauliflower cheese, vegetables and homemade gravy, as well as a veggie option of mushroom Wellington. They are also delivering sarnies, soup, pizza slices and sweet things until 4pm via Deliveroo.
Feeling a little bit extra for Lockdown 3.0? Well, Opus are delivering a dreamy three course menu of prepared dishes throughout lockdown. The restaurant provides the instructions for cooking, heating & finishing. This is a perfect date night idea or a chance to eat something indulgent together as a household since we can’t currently savour this in an actual restaurant. The menu for this month includes homemade peppered beef brisket pastrami, roasted Cornish monkish followed by Devon apple pie and custard. You can also order wines and cheeses to accompany the meal or for a future cheese and wine night.
10. Saint Kitchen
Because doughnuts are always the best medicine in a crisis. Not to mention the fact that you can also get brunch, bagels, sausage rolls, cakes and much more. It’s a blessing (and maybe a curse) for anyone with even the slightest sweet tooth or has a hankering for a generously-filled, freshly baked bagel. You won’t be able to stop gorging on their bakes. There’s even doughnuts filled with crème brûlée filling. Oh yes.
11. Buddha Belly
While you can’t jet off on holiday to Thailand right now, you can still enjoy some exquisite Thai meals right here in Birmingham.

The online shop is currently sold out this week but check back next week to get your delivery order in sharpish. However, you can also order their meals through Green Duck Brewery who are delivering in Birmingham or Cup Coffee Shop in Hagley for a click and collect service.
