Take-Out Restaurants in Victoria, BC

Supporting your local take-out restaurants, Victoria, BC:

You can better support your favorite eateries by ordering directly from them the old-fashioned way – by phone.

Delivery service apps like DoorDash, Skip the Dishes and Uber Eats take a commission from the restaurant. (Traditionally, that commission is 20% to 30%, but there are times when it may be a lot less.)

Don’t feel bad, though, if you prefer the convenience of delivery!

We too use Victoria restaurant delivery services – it’s just so convenient, right?

Best restaurants that deliver in Victoria, BC

When we’re at home here in Victoria – and we’re too lazy to go out – we especially like ordering ethnic food.

Indian and Thai food is just too complicated for us to cook at home!

Takeout Day

We suggest you avoid ordering food on Wednesday “takeout day.”

Wednesdays have been declared “Canada Takeout Day” to help support the restaurant industry. But if everyone orders on Wednesdays, that puts unwanted pressure on the restaurants on this day.

So pick a Tuesday or a Thursday or any other day!

The following are some of the best restaurants that deliver in Victoria, BC, (and offer takeout too).
