You can’t always be prepared for a sudden after-party at your pad, or unexpected cravings when you’re engrossed in your favourite show past midnight. While most places would turn your order down at that hour, here’s our pick of those that will cater to your demands.
This Gurgaon-based delivery service operates between 6pm and 5am, and serves Chinese and Indian cuisine. Pick from starters like tandoori mushroom, hara bhara kebab and chicken seekh kebab, to a variety of tandoori paranthey in flavours like ginger garlic, urad dal, cheese, and mirchi.
“Throw an order my way and I’ll delivery it to your door at any time of the day,” is what they say on their website. This 24-hour delivery service covers a wide area across south, east and north Delhi. From midnight-perfect grub like rolls and shawarmas to pastas, sandwiches, burgers and soups, this is just the place you’re looking for when the buddies show up unannounced.
One of the first to start catering to your cravings at unearthly hours, Bats On Delivery has a convenient and easy-to-use app for both iOS and Android users. They go beyond food and drinks and also have all the party essentials that you might require — disposable plates, basic medicines, ice creams and cakes.
1. Late Night
The city’s most popular midnight delivery service, Late Night also allows you to pre-book and schedule an order. Doesn’t matter which nook and corner of the city you are in, Late Night will get your food to you. Try their crispy, crunchy treats like potato pops and chicken kebabs.
Aptly named! They promise an electric mix, which doesn’t really go beyond Indian, Chinese and burgers. But if you want delivery at far flung places like BTM Layout, Bannerghatta Road and Adugodi, this is your go-to.
3. Nite Out
From the guys who operate the popular lunch delivery service Mealer, Nite Out is your substitute for Bats On Delivery in the city. Get access to food, munchies, beverages and even essential over-the-counter medicines. Order online between 10pm and 3am from Sunday to Thursday, and up to 4.30am on Friday and Saturday.
1. Mad Bites
Run by three young go-getters, Mad Bites probably has the most extensive menu that you can think of. The service also follows a ‘no doorbell’ policy, so you’ll get away with your guilt without waking up the neighbours. Reach out to them next time you need food not just for yourself, but a sudden burst of friends.
Here’s a service that started off in Pune and slowly is trickling into Mumbai. They’re not just about hunger pangs and cravings; Juugaad also cooks up some delicious fare even if you’re diet conscious, and delivers them in eco-friendly packaging, just in case you are environment conscious too.
Serving exquisitely packaged food between 11am and 1pm, Box8 is not your typical midnight go-to. But, it’s worth turning towards if you’re working a late shift and miss out on the last call at your favourite dig. Try their wraps, sandwiches, salads, biryanis and curries. With no phone number to go to, ordering is as simple as online, or on their app.
