There’s no shortage of delicious takeaway options to please your taste buds in South London, whenever you find yourself reaching for the knife and fork. Thankfully, the Royal Borough of Greenwich is no exception. In this historic maritime district, you can eat like kings and queens do, all the while overlooking the beautiful Greenwich Park and Royal Observatory.
But with so much choice on offer, where do you begin? Greenwich offers a bounty of delightful international fare, and we’ve tracked down some of the tastiest there is for this list of the best Greenwich takeaways. Kick up your feet and let’s get dining.
Best Italian Takeaway
We’ve got our very own Pasta Evangelists delivery branch serving the peninsula and beyond restaurant-quality pasta. When you find yourself south of the river with a hankering for homemade comfort food, our talented pastai (pasta makers) have got you covered.
Order artisanal classics from our home delivery menu, featuring favourites like the carbonara of dreams and beef shin lasagne.
Alternatively, if you’re looking to spice up your midweek meals, we can also deliver our pasta recipe kits in and around Greenwich with next-day delivery. Simply pop in your details and pick from our carefully curated range of kits containing everything you need to prepare a proper Italian meal — plus impress your friends and family.
We’ll send out a hearty portion of freshly made pasta, a sauce of your choosing, and plenty of delicious accompaniments to top it all off. Try out boar ragù with fresh pappardelle, sea bass lemon ravioli, or rigatoni with Pomodoro sauce — or tuck into one of our limited-time specials featuring rare ingredients hailing from the rolling hills of il bel paese.
Best Indian Takeaways
Mountain View Restaurant
You’ll be hard-pressed to find a bonafide mountain in Greenwich — unless you count One Tree Hill — but you’ve always got Mountain View. This Indian and Nepalese restaurant offers a broad selection of pan-Asian delights served up to your doorstep, having earned top marks for its cuisine fit for veggie, vegan, gluten-free, and halal diets.
Reviewers praise the takeaway’s tandoori kebabs, karahi and biryani dishes, and house specialities including Nargis chicken and Malabar fish curry. A large, diverse menu? Tick. Fab value for money? Tick. High-quality food no matter your order? Tick! Form an orderly queue to order from Mountain View.
Greenwich market’s best-kept secret is Hullabaloo, a vegan and vegetarian street food restaurant cooking up a plant-based storm. You’ll have no shortage of classic Indian eats here — after all, a good deal of authentic Indian fare is meat-free by nature. Colourful, fragrant and chock-full of lip-smacking flavour, Hullabaloo’s menu is one not to be sniffed at.
The restaurant offers a Delhi-inspired melting pot of dishes like tofu korma, vegetable goan curry, soya chilli masala and Amritsari rajma — not to mention plenty of delicious naans.
Best Latin American Takeaways
As any Greenwich resident knows, a good portion of the local restaurant scene is found in the unorthodox setting of the O2 Arena. It’s not just once-in-a-lifetime concert experiences you can enjoy at the venue — it’s great food, too. Or you can have it delivered. Cabana is a Brazilian grill restaurant offering up a tasty menu inspired by Rio and the spirit of the Amazon.
In fact, it might be the best choice around for meat lovers. Enjoy flame-grilled skewers, butterfly chicken breast and guava barbecue ribs, then wash it all down with house cocktails — think Caipirinhas, Negronis, Margaritas and more.
Buffalo American Grill & Tex-Mex
Craving some soul-warming Mexican hospitality? Allow us to introduce you to Buffalo Greenwich. Enjoy Tex-Mex classics like burgers, chilli, tacos and enchiladas served spicy and hot without any of the meal prep.
Buffalo combines cuisines from across the pond into a diverse and delicious menu. You’ll find all the southern food you can manage with casseroles, paellas, and more, as well as a host of belly-filling side dishes that you know and love. Some patrons have even awarded Buffalo with the title of the best nachos in London — and we’d be tempted to agree.
