Dublin's Take Out, Great Quality And Plenty Of Options

Take out food is no longer just the standard fish and chips or dodgy Chinese takeaway that used to characterise the market. Take out in Dublin has reached a pretty great level with more restaurants than ever offering take away collections as well as sit in meals. Some of the best quality take outs in Dublin are Asian cuisine, but there are also some great pizza, burger and mediterranean restaurants that you can enjoy from the comfort of your hotel room/chowing down by the canal or in a local park.

If Thai food is your thing then Camile, Kanum and Saba for Thai and Vietnamese are great take out options. If you’re looking for a fiery curry then Bombay Pantry is a great option that offers great value meal deals. Neon on Camden Street prides itself on authentic Asian street food and you can take away from the restaurant itself or have it delivered to anywhere in the city centre environs. If you’re craving falafel or baba ghanoush then look no further than mediterranean and Lebanese restaurants Keshk and Rotana. For pizza, it’s got to be Paulie’s in Beggar’s Bush but you’ll have to collect your pizza. Meanwhile Jo’burger in Rathmines lets you take out or collect some of their delicious burgers that are cooked to your preference with some interesting flavour combinations.
