D- Delivery

Docomo, a Telecom Operator company, launched in 2014 a food delivery website called D-Delivery. The website is only available in Japanese, but it is really simple to use. Franchises such as Pizza Hut and KFC are part of their ever-growing list of partners. D-Delivery is similar to other delivery websites featured in this article but offers a special payment method and coupons to their Docomo Telecom clients such as Mobile payment and D Card Payment. These two options allow their clients to pay by phone or pay the food together with their phone bill. If you are a Docomo user, I highly recommend this website.

Demae-can

Demae-can is the biggest and best food delivery in Japan and has over 15.000 franchises working with them. Once again, there is no English version of this website, however, the system is fairly easy to use. Even if you have a basic Japanese level, you can give it a try. If you don’t have any knowledge of the Japanese language then you might consider using google translator or create courage to ask a Japanese person to help you out ( they always do, don’t worry).

Denny’s

Although the menu is quite a bit different from the Denny’s in America, you can still get lunch and dinner delivered from the classic diner chain. There are restrictions on times, locations, and minimum orders, but Denny’s provides a good meal without the fuss. Order online, by phone, or through their Apple or Google Play apps.

Domino’s Pizza

Tokyo food deliveryDomino’s has an English website that lets you order pizza and sides wherever you are in Japan (as long as you live near a Domino’s store, of course). They often have coupons available, so check to see if you’re eligible for a discount on your order. And if you go and pick up your order, all the pizzas are 1,000 yen cheaper and you may get a second pizza of equal or lesser value for free!

Faith

Hamburgers are pretty popular in Tokyo, so it would only make sense for a delivery hamburger joint to pop up and offer delivery to multiple wards. Faith hamburger is a “gourmet” burger restaurant located in Shinjuku that offers at least 12 different kinds of burgers and party plates that will fulfill your craving for a good burger. The website has English descriptions and is overall well organized and easy to use. The names of the pages and the names of the dishes are in Japanese and English, but if you have any food restriction I suggest you translate the page since all the ingredients are only described in Japanese.

GuruNavi

Famously known for its Restaurant review website, GuruNavi created their food delivery service in two versions. GuruNavi and GuruNavi Premium. GuruNavi offers cheap options of foods with venues requiring a minimum order value of 1,000 and delivers not only in Tokyo but also in nearby prefectures such as Chiba, Kanagawa, and Saitama. For the fine cuisine fans, we have GuruNavi Premium, launched in 2016. The service offers gourmet bento boxes and dishes for cheap, not as cheap as a traditional convenience store, but the quality is far superior and for a reasonable price, going as low as 1,500 yen. The only thing you have to pay attention is for the minimum orders in both websites that can be up to 2,000 yen in GuruNavi and up to 10,000 yen in GuruNavi Premium.

Kiwi Kitchen

If you’re looking for something a bit more homey, then Kiwi Kitchen can satisfy your desires. Kiwi Kitchen offers catering and delivery of various foods like lasagna and curry rice to either your workplace or home. The website is in both English and Japanese and Kiwi Kitchen will deliver in and around the Minato-ku area. The tricky situation with Kiwi Kitchen is that food can only be delivered from 10:30 a.m. to 01:00 p.m. and the whole communication is either through e-mails or Phone calls. It requires some patience, but if you are looking for gourmet meals for cheap, is totally worth it.

Mc Donald’s delivers to most areas in Tokyo and is an excellent option for those lazy days. It has a minimum order value of 1,500 + 300 yen delivery fee, depending on your area. The website has several seasonal campaigns that are worth a try. The ordering system is really simple and the food is usually delivered in 30 min, also depending on the area and time of order. Like everything else in Japan, I advisee you to order ahead to guarantee your lunch during hush hours.
