East London is one of London’s most vibrant areas, with students, city workers, diverse ethnic communities and hipsters all rubbing up alongside each other. The area’s cuisine is just as varied, but perhaps the cuisines that East London is best known for are Chinese, Vietnamese and Thai, with the East being well-served for fantastic restaurants cooking up a real smorgasbord of dishes to suit every budget.
With such a vast array on offer, it’s no surprise that those takeaways who have been awarded as top takeaways are of a real high quality, with legions of happy customers often coming back week-in-week-out for their delicious takeaway.
Fighting off all competition and despite it’s focus on Chinese food, the Noodle Street has become home to some of the tastiest Pad Thais in the East End, whilst they’ve also been winning over foodies of all stripes with their impressive crispy aromatic duck with egg noodles. For a bit of extra kick the team at Noodle Street add a little cucumber to the mix, along with a spicy hoi sin sauce. But don’t just take our word for it, as it’s become one of their most popular items on the menu!

Finding a takeaway that can serve up truly delicious authentically traditional Chinese and Peking food is like finding a needle in a haystack, but with the Twin Dynasty on Barking Road you need look no further. We reckon that the key to a fantastic Chinese meal is to get the chicken balls right, and the Twin Dynasty are legendary in these parts for their incredibly popular sweet and sour chicken balls.

The Singway on Roman Road have earnt their place within our list of Top Takeaways due to their extensive menu of gorgeous dishes, along with their generously sized set meals which even when ordered for only 2 people have ended up lasting our happy customers for up to three meals! We think that’s a winning illustration of a delicious – yet economical – Chinese takeaway feast.

The Ming on Northwold Road specialise in all things regional, with their range of Cantonese and Peking dishes consistently being rated highly by hungryhouse customers. Choosing one fantastic meal from these guys seems almost unfair, but if you’re new to the area and are unsure on what to try, we’d recommend the roast duck with green pepper in a black bean sauce, which might just be perfection on a plate!
