Rainy Sundays call for lazy afternoons spent watching corny movies and ordering in. If you’re new to Istanbul and don't know which places are best for ordering in, take look at our list of best delivery options:
Pizza: Pizza Picco is a reasonably-priced eatery that delivers your food while it’s still hot. Don’t expect to find the finest prosciutto on your pizza, but rest assured that you’ll get a rather good one. The Robespierre Pizza comes highly recommended. And we suggest you try the Lasagna alla Bolognese, too – it’s very, very good. To find the branch that delivers to your area, click here.
Do it online
www.yemeksepeti.com is a delivery website that includes the majority of eateries in Istanbul. It’s available in English, too; it’s very easy to use and you don’t have to share your credit card details.
Burger: Flame-kissed patties, gooey cheese, corn relish, home-made fries...juicy indeed! To enjoy a quality burger, just order what looks the most appetizing to you on Burger House’s menu. If you want to order a side, go for the haloumi stick. To find the branch that delivers to your area, click here.
The Burger: Order Lokum from Nusr-Et Burger. We don’t have the words to describe how delicious it is. Just order one and see for yourself. Call (0212) 265 45 02 to place an order.
Asian: Little China & Sushi is a bit on the pricey side, but offers high-quality Asian food for those craving the classics like hot & sour soup, sweet & sour chicken, spring rolls, fried rice, spicy tuna roll, and california roll. Call (0212) 263 17 15 to place an order. If ordering with a group, consider Quick China. It’s not only cheaper but it also offers varied selections of Thai, Chinese, and Japanese cuisine.

Fish: If you don’t want your entire house to smell like fish for an entire week, order grilled fish from Adem Baba. This is also a great option if you want to have a rakı-fish combo but don’t want to go out. Call (0212) 263 29 33 to place an order.
Chicken: Whether you want something on the healthy side or you’re craving for some comfort food, you’ll find what you’re looking for at WienerWald. The healthiest and tastiest choice is their rotisserie chicken, which is cooked with a 55-year-old special recipe: it is cooked without adding oil, resulting in chicken that is juicy on the inside and crunchy on the outside. And they serve the chicken within 40 minutes of cooking so it’s always fresh and tasty. For some comfort food, go for the wings, kicks, or the schnitzel, with a side of potato wedges, and finish off with a true apple strudel. To find the branch that delivers to your area, click here.
Healthy: The Wrap offers – you guessed it – delicious and healthy wraps, all of which come in two sizes and a side of mashed potatoes with basil. If it’s your first time ordering, we highly recommend the Asian chicken wrap or the slightly less healthy Philly cheese steak. To find the branch that delivers to your area, click here. If you want something a bit more hardcore, check out Cuppa’s extensive menu with a hefty selection of sandwiches, juices, smoothies, salads, soups, and entrees to choose from. Their juice and smoothie options are surely their strongest point. Call (0212) 249 57 23 to place an order.
