Roll me up

Where Sushi Art, The Beach, JBR

The low-down Rows and rows of dainty, delicious sushi rolls with the freshest fish, the fluffiest rice, the fattest prawns and the most succulent avocado; our delivery from Sushi Art had us all in satiated silence for quite some time. With a crazily creative selection of rolls and makis, including a large vegetarian range, this is a great option if you’re looking for a light, healthy lunch that’ll fill you up as well as taste absolutely fabulous.

Price Lunch boxes with 18 pieces of sushi Dh59

Don’t miss The ridiculously tasty miso soup and the filling chicken and avocado rolls.

Call 800 220.

Mamma mia!

Where Sapori di Bice, JBR and City Walk

The low-down We were bowled over to discover this fab family restaurant does delivery, but even more impressed by the standard of the food when it arrived. Like transmuting a gourmet Italian restaurant into your office or home, we feasted on pillowy ravioli and sumptuous rigatoni in delicious sauces, fresh quinoa and caprese salads with the meltiest mozzarella, and some of the finest pizza we’ve had this side of Napoli (you know when the crust is tasty enough to be a meal in itself?). Gluten-free pasta is also available.

Price Pasta mains Dh50-Dh72.

Don’t miss It’s all delicious!, 04 551 6349 and 04 344 2550.

Guilt-free pizza

Where Freedom Pizza, branches all around Dubai

The low-down We stuffed our faces with pizza after pizza with not a hint of guilt; bases are wholegrain or gluten-free, creamy mozzarella is locally produced, organic and fresh, crunchy, flavoursome veggies are nearly all organic and locally grown. We tried a few favourites from the menu but you can also build your own, and opt for a tasty salad on the side if you really want to be healthy (although we forgot all our good intentions when we spotted the gorgeously gooey, chewy gluten-free chocolate brownies for dessert).

Price Small pizza from Dh32, large from Dh52.

Don’t miss We loved the super-healthy Mother Earth, stacked with organic veggies, and the baked chicken tenders. Order online or find your nearest branch to call.

The healthy option

Where Kcal, branches around town

The low-down This could possibly be the best thing since sliced bread; delivery so we don’t have to cook, totally yummy dishes from a range of world cuisines and best of all, calorie-counted so you don’t have to ditch the diet. We had a selection of light bites, salads and mains including a heartily filling Mexican beef soup, a surprisingly satisfying pasta-free lasagne and a really moreish Asian chicken salad. We were also pleasantly surprised to see food intolerances and special diets such as Paleo catered for. All the food was fresh, tasty and well-packaged, and our delivery guy was one of the speediest we’ve met.

Price Starters Dh14-Dh22, mains Dh40-Dh49.

Don’t miss The Vietnamese spring rolls; all the taste, none of the grease., 600 595 955

A royal delivery

Where Royal China Kitchen, DIFC

The low-down We’ve been searching for a good-quality Chinese delivery for years and we’ve finally found it! The take-away arm of this swanky DIFC outlet doesn’t compromise on quality – there’s no scrimping when it comes to the meat and seafood mains; our prawns with cashews was chock-full of huge and plump, juicy prawns, while the chicken with peppers and blackbean sauce was 
a protein-packed taste sensation.

Price Meat mains from Dh78, noodle and rice dishes containing meat and seafood from Dh48. Dim sum from Dh28.

Don’t miss The fat, fluffy, flavourful dim sum – we can’t stop thinking about it!

CAll 04 207 9989.
