9 Great Places for Takeout in Toronto

9 Great Places for Takeout in Toronto

Restaurant capacity may be limited right now, but that doesn't mean your choices have to be. Many of Toronto's best restaurants have adapted to social distancing restrictions by offering take-out or delivery. So, don't settle for fast food when you can have some of the city's most amazing chefs' food in the comfort of your own home! (And please note, this list is by no ways exhaustive. Support your favourite local eatery every chance you get!)

Remember: These days, it's best to check with your destinations before you head out. Businesses, services and attractions may open or close due to changing restrictions.


Patois has been described as the place where Caribbean meets Asian soul food. If you can't imagine what that tastes like, you need to put this on your list so you can sample some of Chef Craig Wong's remarkable fare. Think Jerk Chicken Chow Mein, Dirty Fried Rice, Jerk Pork Belly Yakisoba and so much more. Patois is open for pickup and delivery, and should not be missed.


Antler is the place bears dream about at night or, really, any carnivore. (Even those with only two feet.) Chef Michael Hunter has created a restaurant in the heart of the city with a menu that's all rural. As they say, Antler aims to celebrate the wild culinary delights of Canada, tapping into the tastes, flavours and aromas of our glorious near-north. You can order from the Antler menu now on Door Dash, Ritual and Uber Eats or you can order directly through their website to schedule a pickup.

The Drake(s)

The Drake Commissary, Drake One Fifty and The Drake Hotel are available now for a combination of walk-in orders (for take-out) and Uber Eats (for delivery). It's all the Drake classics you love plus, now they even have your lunch break covered with new TO GO lunch boxes. They're stacked with made-from-scratch sourdough pizzas, sandwiches, treats and more. Definitely worth an order.


As they say, the Edulis experience is about many things feasting, celebrating the craft and tradition of cooking, and spectacular ingredients. Those amazing ingredients include seasonal inspirations like the current Harvest Menu. Chefs Michael Caballo and Tobey Nemeth have adapted to COVID-19 by offering "Edulis at Home" for pickup including the "Edulis Picnic at Home." They are also offering a small selection of à la carte, wine and pantry items. Worth checking out.

A new project from the minds that brought you Khao San Road, Paris Paris and trendy Italian-fare joint, Superpoint, Favorites offers flaming hot stir-fry straight off the wok, as well as refreshing snacks and sharing plates. It takes your favourite Thai dishes to a whole new level. And now you can visit for takeout at the restaurant or get your fix via delivery through Door Dash (from Thursday to Saturday).

Pukka describes itself as a forward-thinking take on Indian cuisine imagine family-style sharing plates with full-size flavours. The goal, they say, is to take you on a journey through decadent tastes, while maintaining a lightness that enchants the palette. The culinary team elevates the typical Indian curry into clean, modern bites that wow both the eyes and taste buds. Pukka has closed its doors to dine-in eating, but is available for delivery or pickup.

Maha's Brunch

Maha's is a family affair, named for Head Chef Maha Barsoom. The restaurant offers a healthy serving of Egyptian food, culture and friendly warmth. It feels a little like coming home. Personally, we're fans of the falafel and lentil soup, but there's a ton of amazing things to sample on the menu. Food is available for take-out dining only right now.
