One thing that definitely improved since I arrived in Luxembourg ten years ago is the availability of food delivery websites. I remember at that time, if you were lazy or hangover, the only reasonable options you had were to drive to next Mac Donalds or to call a very bad pizza guy from a kebab house.
I will go quickly through the websites I usually order and my favorite delivery places and then some favorite options.
+++ my favorite delivery website
best choice of restaurants in the city
all deliveries are free and delivery time very reliable
you can collect points to get (fast) discount on next deliveries
+++ great choice of restaurants,
possibility to pay online before the delivery or at the door,
each order makes you earn some points to get a discount
— the delivery times are normally starting from 60 minutes
some delivery costs 3,8 euro
to get a discount with the points, it takes a lot of orders
+++ great choice of restaurants,
you get a message with the estimate time of delivery
you can decide if to pay by cash or by card in most of the places and delivery is for free
— The delivery indication given are not always reliable
+++ after ordering, you can leave a review for other users and rely on others reviews if you don’t know the place you are ordering from
— choice is not huge like in the first two websites
There are other websites you can order, like Eat Me, that is very user-friendly, had delicious food proposals but unfortunately in Luxembourg city is only available for delivery in Kirchberg (but works fine if you live outside the capital and has also take-away and shops). There are also many restaurants, like Namaste, Rusticana, Everest or Sushi Shop that offers direct delivery from their websites – not bad either if you know already what you are up to.
Regarding multiple options sites, these are my favorite choices. Unfortunately I can judge only places in my area, but please comment with other nice places you have tried in order to share! Check below!
Pizza: I quarto mori
Love the pizza here because it always comes still very hot and they have also a “Family size” that is perfect for big appetite of for sharing. Toppings are very “Italian” and the delivery is always pretty fast.
Unfortunately they are closed on Saturday lunch time and Sundays that are the days I use the delivery most.
Personal Favorite: Pizza Gustosa
Mama loves you
When I Quattro Mori is closed, we tend to order from Mama loves you, as the delivery is also relatively quick and the pizza is very tasty, even if a bit smaller in size. Only downside: prices are not very competitive.
Personal Favorite: Pizza Gabriella
Indian: Bay of Bengala/Royal Bengala
I think I tried all the Indian deliveries in Luxembourg, as I love Indian food. I really find the Royal Begala/Bay of Begala the really best one. Portions are very fair, tastes are great, food is coming extremely hot even if they are pretty far from where I live and every order you got a free beer.
Downside, in rush hours the delivery is very slow – once it took even 2 hours. Not good. Moreover the minimum delivery is around 30 euro, so not ideal if you are alone.
Personal Favorite: Mushroom Soup and Madras Vegetables.
Chinese: Mr Wok
For sure if you are ordering Chinese food you don’t look for anything sophisticated. Mr Wok is really cheap one, minimum delivery is 15 euro, they are super fast and they always offer you a portion of shrimp chips and a drink with the delivery.
As said, don’t expect gourmet food, but something fair enough to avoid a walk of shame to the next kebab.
Personal Favorite: Spring Rolls and Chicken Noodles
To be honest, I tend not to order much sushi at home. I really dislike Sushi Shop – I find prices terribly high and the rolls quality and presentation, above all during pick hours, is ugly. I tried several more places in the meanwhile, most of them were Asian kitchen restaurants converted to sushi. Quality was definitely low as well as taste. I tend now to order or to take away from Sushi and More. The prices are fair (lunch combo are for about 11 euros), they are doing only sushi and the food is pretty good. Still not the best, but definitely better than others I tried.
Hangover bonus: Planet Pizza
If you are following my blog, you know I eat everything – really, there’s nothing I have or would not tried/try. But I am picky – cleanness, presentation, atmosphere of places are very important to me. With one, huge exception: hangover meals. In this case, I think I really eat in every condition and every type of ugly food. If you are like me, the place to order is definitely Planet Pizza. They have these huge XL pizza with weird ingredients – potatoes, kebab, meat, raclette – chicken wings, fajtas, burgers. Quality is low, food is greasy, but it definitely might be the place to order for some you after a big night out.
Personal favorite: XL Diavola Pizza and Finger Food Jalapeno with Cheese
