Okay, so we might not be able to head off to our favourite Headingley restaurants with a group of mates this winter. But, the good news is that many of our favourite independent eats are now offering take-outs. And, many with free delivery too. So, you can put your order in, put your comfiest clobber on and then tuck in shortly after your doorbell rings. All in the comfort of your own luxury rented accommodation in Headingley.

Whether it’s a Sunday roast you’re craving or a loaded burger on a Friday night to wash down with a well-deserved beer, we’ve got you covered. Here is our guide to Headingley’s best lockdown takeaways this winter…

For a Thai takeaway feast

It has to be Thai Sabai.  If you’re in the mood for a Penang curry or Pad Thai, then this is the place to order from. They’re open Tuesdays through to Sundays and also have an extensive vegetarian menu with over 16 main course options to choose from. Plus, if you’ve still got space, their desserts are epic too. We recommend the baked Thai custard or the banana fritter with syrup. They are also licensed to sell alcohol with takeaway food, so you order your Singha beer at the same time.

You can order collections or deliveries by calling 0113 275 8613 or book online.

For 3-course dining at home…

Takeaway at Heaney & Mill in serious style. This trendy deli/restaurant/cocktail bar offers all the luxuries of restaurant dining in your own Leeds student accommodation. Their 3-course dining menu offers a delicious dining experience, oven-ready and delivered within a 30-mile radius – and all for under £20! They also have a fab vegetarian dining menu too. Plus, you can now even pre-book a five-course New Year’s Eve feast package for £45. Their signature house cocktails are also available to order online – mixed by their expert bartenders and ready to pour at home.

For a proper Neapolitan pizza…

Check out Ecco Pizzeria. They are specialists in Neapolitan wood-fired pizzas as well as creamy gelato too. Go for a classic Margherita with fresh basil and olive oil or be a bit more adventurous with a Kingston topped with strips of marinated jerk chicken and jalapenos. They also offer a great range of salads, sides and dips too, for sharing.

For burgers and beers…

Put your order in with Growlers. Build your own loaded burger complete with an 8oz beef patty and brioche bun. Or, opt for the halloumi and falafel burger served with humous, salad and mint yoghurt. Milkshake fan? Choose from Aero, Dairy Milk, Cream Egg or many more. Yum! Or perhaps opt for something a little healthier with a carrot, spinach and orange smoothie.

Understated and modern, De Baga offers contemporary twists on classic tandoori dishes such as their Makan Wale Ke Murgi and their Goan Lamb Xacuti.
