In the grand scheme of things, the importance of culture, community, and eating out is often overlooked. As England enters its second national lockdown, hundreds of restaurants continue to struggle following the effects of the first lockdown, implemented in March. While all restaurants have been forced to temporarily close for sit-down customers (as others have been forced to close permanently), many restaurants are continuing to offer a delivery and/or takeaway offering, which proved popular earlier this year. After all, during these difficult times, supporting our world-class local restaurant scene is more important than ever.
While nothing will ever beat sitting down to eat with friends and family in a different, comfortable setting; enjoying great food and a glass (or bottle) of wine while somebody else does the washing-up: we’ve compiled a roundup of the best London restaurants currently offering take-away and delivery services during this state of global panic.

Having co-founder Cinnamon Club before opening Darbaar in the City, chef Abdul Yaseen has launched Barbers Bazaar – a new delivery and collection kitchen. Based in Crouch End, Barbers Bazaar serves food inspired by the families of barbers working in food markets in old Pakistan and India, before the partition. Through his inventive takes on Indian classics, Yaseen intends to tell the story of the countries’ deep-rooted connection. On the menu, lamb saag bhuna masala, for instance, is a blend of popular dishes in both countries. Elsewhere, the chef’s barbecue skills are showcased in dishes such as ‘Barbers Devil Tandoori Wings’; Chooza chicken tikka achari; and Lahoori Beef Chapli kebab aur anar, marinated with rock moss, cloves and pomegranate. Twists on classic takeaway curries also include Bengali Chingri prawns; and paneer aur subz methi korma.
Order for Barbers Bazaar can be placed by phone, through the website, and directly through UberEats, Deliveroo, and Just Eat for delivery within a 2-mile radius. Further information can be found at barbersbazaar.com.
