When it comes to eating out, Australia has unbeatable range. But you don’t have to leave the home to experience fine restaurant dining: as people get busier and working hours get longer, more and more Aussies are turning to takeaway as a quality option.

Menulog has recognised some of Australia’s top takeaway restaurants with its 2014 Tasty Takeaway Awards, an annual competition in which customers vote for their favourite local eateries. The awards seek to recognise those neighbourhood restaurants that rarely experience the spotlight, but have nonetheless won over customers with superior food and service.

Manoosh Pizzeria

Manoosh Pizzeria

This year the National Winner – for the second time – was Manoosh Pizzeria in Sydney’s bustling Enmore, a Lebanese restaurant offering a unique take on takeaway staples like wraps and pizzas. The menu includes classics like Hawaiian and Margarita pizzas as well as Lebanese fare such as zaatar and kebbeh and a range of desserts.

Winners were also chosen from the states of Western Australia, South Australia, Queensland, New South Wales and Victoria.

The quintessential neighbourhood Chinese restaurant, Lummy’s offers all the takeaway favourites with quality and freshness.

Western Australia – Hot Rock Pizza, Bassendean

Hot Rock Pizza has garnered lots of praise for its vast range of traditional and inventive pizzas.

  4. I’ve never tried Menulog before; I love pizza!

  5. I haven’t used Menulog before, but did notice that my favourite pizza restaurant is advertising it.

  6. I’ve used Menulog to buy my favourite Thai – yum!

  7. I’ve used Menulog before and my favourite take away is Thai!

  8. What a pity I live to far away.
    Have a beautiful week ahead Julie.

  9. Yes I have and it’s awesome! I love ordering greasy Chinese takeaway!

  10. Yes please I’ve never tried this before! I like how takeaway and delivery menus are SO much better now.

  11. I’ve heard of menulog but I haven’t actually used the service. I must give it a try as I’ve heard lots of good things about it xx

  12. What a diverse range of take away options! Menulog is certainly on to a good system 🙂

  13. thai as everyone in the family has a favourite dish

  14. If I win, the will come in Bordeaux or I’m going to Australie? 😉 Anyway if I lived there I will go there, everything looks so good!

  15. Never used it before, but I love pizza!

  16. How happy I will be when good, fresh, authentic takeaway arrives in my part of Australia. 🙂

  17. I love the idea of Menulog. I’m definitely going to have to check out the burger place in Windsor next time I’m near there. Love that the awards showcase businesses that may not normally be in the spotlight but have great products! xx

  18. Stephanie Veljanovska :

    I Have not used Menulog before. My very favourite is Indian takeaway I would eat it every day if possible lol. Even my 3 year old loves it

  19. I’m yet to use Menulog but I’d try Babu Bar Burger With Balls in Windsor, now that you’ve alerted me to a winning outlet for my favourite takeaway!

  20. Never used Menulog before and my favouriye take away is Vietnamese

  21. Good luck to all!!!

  22. Cheryl Moulton :

    I have use Menulog once before, and I was absolutely rapt, I ordered online and the delivery was made right on the time that I had selected.
    My favourite are Chinese and Japanese cuisines. Just love them

  23. I’ve tried Menulog and was happy with it. My favourite takeaway is Chinese.

  24. Haven’t tried it yet, but Thai it’s our favourite!

  25. I have never tried out Menulog, heard lots about it though. I love all kinds of Asian takeaways, especially Thai!

  26. Sounds like a great service. Here in HK my favourite take out has to be Cantonese cuisine and no matter where you are or what time it is they always say 20 minutes from order time to delivery..

  27. I don’t live there but I heard about Menulog in another blog and looks like they are doing well. We usually eat out rather than take it home, but it’s nice to have a trust worthy place for some busy nights!

  28. I’ve used Menulog before! Sometimes, you just get too lazy to cook, and having someone else do it for you and deliver it is what you need!

  29. I haven’t used Menulog before, but I’m keen to give it a go – it will be nice to know there’s a back-up if I’m too tired to cook one night after baby arrives. My secret indulgent take-away meal is pizza, but I’m also quite partial to Thai!

  30. That’s handy to know! Will have to try the QLD place next time I’m down the coast.

  31. I like Menulog. I’ve used it a few times up here. You place your order, then you get a text saying what time to pick up your food or what time it will be delivered. Brilliant!

  32. Yes, I like trying new restaurants.

  33. Yes I love Menulog. Pizza and Chinese Takeout are my favourites.

  34. chinese

  35. I have never used Menulog but would be happy to have the chance to for sure!

  36. i have used it before and it was great
