With everyone urged to practice social distancing to curb the spread of the coronavirus in the UAE, dining out should be avoided as much as possible. This is one of the reasons why people are increasingly turning towards the takeaway restaurants in Dubai, so they can indulge in their favourite foods from the safety of their homes. From healthy eats to deliveries from fine dining establishments, sweets and fast food, here is a list of eateries offering the best takeaway in Dubai.
Healthy takeaway options
The recent situation may be preventing you from going to the gym, but you can still stay true to your healthy lifestyle by having low-calorie meals delivered to your home. Some of the popular options for healthy takeaway in Dubai include:
