Ima Project udon and soba
Despite being relatively new to Carlton, Ima has fast become a tiny local legend. Jump onto their website to check out the daily soup special. If you’re in luck, the silky udon noodles with an oozey ‘onsen’ egg will be available to order for pick up. You can also find them on Uber Eats, where a refreshing soba noodle salad with pickles and puffed rice is ready for delivery.
BangPop Thai fusion
BangPop on Uber Eats has enough fresh, zingy Thai food to wake anyone up. The Pad Thai is so beloved, the BangPop chefs even run classes on how to make it at home. Don’t go past the Chiang Mai curry noodle soup though. It’s a hunger busting bowl of egg noodles in a rich curry soup, topped with super addictive fried noodle crisps.
Warung Agus Malaysian
Look, you’re not going to Bali any time soon. Warung Agus is serving the Indonesian foodie goods for the time being though. Hit them up for home delivery of curry laksa noodle soup. Add a side of Nasi Goreng and let your mind drift to the beaches of Seminyak.
Panda Hot Pot at home
Drop it like it’s hot pot and slurp endless bowls of Sichuan goodness when you have Panda Hot Pot at home. Order spicy broth (or the more mild sesame flavours) then load it up with noodles, pork ribs, tofu, veggies and pretty much any delicious thing you can think of.
Pho Thin’s noodles in red wine sauce
Hidden through Hardware Lane, Pho Thin delivers delish warming noodle bowls across Melbourne. Traditional offers include beef brisket and chicken loaded pho, or light up your tastebuds with the signature red wine pho. Add on extra egg, crispy tofu or a savoury fried doughnut to soak up every last drop of yum. Keep an eye on their Facebook to see where deliveries are going next.
Hakata Gensuke ramen
Attention all hopeless ramen-tics: Hakata Gensuke is open for takeaway and delivery.

Order on Uber Eats or call ahead to place a pick up order.
If you haven’t had a chance to try Thai Thani on Deliveroo yet, you’ve run out of excuses. The Pad Thai is a sticky, smokey sensation with all the fave trimmings. Or try their Itali-Thai fusion with the ‘Spaghetti Pad Kee Mao’ – a Euro take on the famous ‘Drunken Noodles’. Wash it down with an iced Thai milk tea for maximum Koh Samui vibes.
MissChu’s virtuous Vietnamese
If you’re craving fresh food, MissChu delivers (literally). Noodle bowls with veggies cooked in pure olive oil, turmeric chicken and vegan dishes will keep your immunity up and your hunger down. The vermicelli bowls are also available in vegan and GF options.
Hawker Chan’s taste of Singapore
Hawker Chan’s soya sauce chicken has local cult status, and the Char Siew noodles are just as good. At less than $15 a serve, they’re a bit of a steal. Call in an order to takeaway (if you’re within 5km).
Nothing is more comforting than a big bowl of hot pho, and who couldn’t use a little comfort food right now? Pho Victoria on Uber Eats has authentic hearty beef pho, or try something different and order fried quail with roti. There’s also wonton soups, fried egg noodles and rice paper rolls.
Killiney Kopitam laksa loving
When the weather turns cold, you need a little laksa loving. Or Nasi Lemak, or beef rendang…better be safe and order it all from Killiney Kopitam. The Fried Kway Teow is another foodie must – loaded with prawns, authentic fish cake, fresh veggies and all that smokey goodness.
Go Noodle House loaded Chinese noodles
Go for broke with a delivery from Go Noodle House. This Chinatown staple has some of the city’s best Asian eats in town – think pork belly noodles, ribs, chilli pan mee and more. Top your dish with truffle mushrooms or an oozey poached egg.
@t Ease Easy Thai
Keep your taste buds on their toes. Order @t Ease Easy Thai on Uber Eats or Deliveroo. Add a little extra crunch to your Pad Thai and top it with crispy wonton. If you’re all Pad Thai-ed out, try the sukiyaki stir fried glass noodles in chilli oil.
