The best Asian restaurants open for take-out


This pandemic has been a bit chaotic for the restaurant industry, and it’s hard to know which restaurants have survived. How do you know which of your favourite restaurants are currently open for takeout? We’ve got your back. At Tastet, we’re continually updating our lists to bring you the best addresses that are open for take-out, so you can continue supporting your favourite restaurants.

Since all dining rooms are closed at this time, most restaurants have no choice but to offer take-out. Restaurateurs are working hard to offer you menus adapted to bring home.

While waiting for your favourite addresses to reopen, here is the list of some of our favourite restaurants open for take-out. We also have compiled several other lists of restaurants open for take-out: Indian restaurants, comfort food restaurants, Italian restaurants, restaurants that serve brunch, those that serve lunch, sushi restaurants, healthy restaurants, and chic restaurants.

Here are our suggestions of Asian restaurants open for take-out:

  • Mikado (Laurier Avenue West): This location is reopening for take-out and delivery.
  • Mikado (Monkland — now called Kiku): They have reopened for take-out and delivery from 5pm to 9pm every day except Tuesday.
  • Épicerie Pumpui: A staple and comforting Thai counter on Saint-Zotique East. They are now offering take-out. The house offers a vegan menu, a non-vegan menu, and other delights (such as snow crab and fried chicken). Their grocery section also offers a small, nice selection of alcoholic drinks. As the address is very popular, you must order in advance.
  • Otto Yakitori: (Temporarily closed for vacations). On St. Matthew Street downtown, Otto Yakitori makes bento boxes to take-out. The house offers fried chicken karaage, bibimbap, and Japanese curry. Of course, the staple yakitoris (grilled meat skewers) are also offered. The house has also opened its cellar to the public and is offering sake and soju to accompany your meal.
  • Fleurs & Cadeaux: The house classics are available for delivery and take-out. Special bento boxes are still available, as well as other surprise dishes. Also, take the opportunity to stock up on good sake.
  • Satay Brothers: Over time, Satay Brothers has become a staple on Notre Dame Street West. While waiting for the dining rooms to reopen, the Cambodian-inspired address is turning to a take-out menu: kebabs, papaya salad, steamed buns, laksa and more. Order online and then pick up in the restaurant.
