Although Hong Kong’s cases of CoViD-19 have stabilised, some of us are still looking to keep ‘social distancing’ alive even whilst attempting some romance — opting to stay in even on date night (or perhaps we’re just used to being lazy).
Staying home is just all too tempting these days, with plenty of delicious dine-in options at our fingertips and where dinner arrives at our doorstep without the need to budge. If you’re feeling this sentiment too, here are some of our top picks for restaurants in Hong Kong that will deliver a meal for two right to your home.
Wine-paired Cantonese cuisine with PIIN Wine Restaurant
PIIN has recently launched a menu of ready-made vacuum sealed meals, allowing you to enjoy their premium Cantonese dishes from the comforts of your own home. There’s also the option to add a bottle of red or white Burgundy (2017 Domaine de Montille Bourgogne Chardonnay or Pinot Noir, from HK$250), selected by their resident sommelier to truly elevate your home dining experience. For a scrumptious date night dinner at home, we suggest ordering the set for two (HK$368 per set), which comes with a soup of the day, half a deboned sand ginger chicken, braised pork belly in ‘Dong Po’ style and the restaurant’s signature black garlic fried rice.
Orders need to be made 24 hours in advance, with complimentary delivery to addresses in Central and SoHo.

A Sri Lankan affair from Hotal Colombo
Those familiar with Black Sheep Restaurants will know about the group’s delivery app Black Sheep Go — one of our top choices for date night deliveries. A great meal option for date night dinner would have to be the restaurant’s ‘Hotal at Home’ set (HK$328), a special Sri Lankan feast made for two, where you can choose a starter, main and two sides from their menu. It comes with a bag of banana chips, a great way to start or end your meal with some sweet snacking.

A protein heavy meal, courtesy of Meats
For obvious reasons, carnivores love Pirata Group’s SoHo eatery Meats, and if your SO is a keen protein eater, this is definitely the option for you. Set the mood; light some candles; and keep it classy with an order of the restaurant’s hefty U.F.C. (Ultimate Fried Chicken) and truffle mac & cheese for an indulgent dinner feast. Wash it all down by tacking on some house red or white to your order.
Your meal from Meats can be ordered straight from the restaurant for pick up or via Deliveroo for delivery to your home.

Classic Italian fare from Café Gray Deluxe
The Upper House’s modern European restaurant Café Gray Deluxe is offering a limited new dinner menu with complimentary delivery services. The menu is simple, with three dishes to choose from, each priced at HK$250 and serves two — perfect for you and your boo. We recommend ordering the light lemongrass spring minestrone that comes with focaccia and ricotta spread, and the house-made spaghetti puttanesca. One of the more filling options on our list of date night deliveries, the meal will satisfy both of your appetites and leave you feeling ready to move on with your night… for a homemade dessert.
The new dinner delivery service is available Monday–Sunday. Orders must be made by 6pm; deliveries will be made between 6:30–8:30pm.
