Best takeaway & food delivery in Exeter

If you have recently made the decision to study in Exeter during the forthcoming academic year, you may be interested to know that we have a fantastic selection of luxury student accommodation in the city.

Our exquisitely restored Victorian buildings are perfect for students looking for that touch of sophistication out of their digs, as you will see from taking a good look through our selection.

As part of our commitment to students in our favourite student locations of Nottingham, Bristol and Exeter, we have been publishing handy student advice articles for several years now. These are designed to give you all the information about your new home towns and also assist you when it comes to getting to grips with student life.

In today’s article, we take a look at Exeter’s ever burgeoning food scene and a topic that all students will find useful at some point in their studies; takeaway and food delivery in Exeter.

Best Takeaway In Exeter

When looking for the best takeaway Exeter has to offer, one is obviously spoilt for choice. The likes of JustEat and Deliveroo have meant that we are all bombarded with choice when heading to our smartphone or computer to order some quick and tasty food.

However, this amount of information can sometimes be counter-productive leaving us with too much choice and quite a task on our hands choosing a great meal when it really matters. Thankfully the Almero team has used a bit of local knowledge to bring you some of the best Exeter food options.


If you’re fond of Turkish style food, then Pasha should probably be your first port of call when looking for food delivery Exeter is really proud of. Ranked in the top 20 of all restaurants in the city overall, these guys take the time to ensure your takeaway reaches you in splendid condition and quality is always assured.

Whether you’re on the hunt for authentic moussaka, baklava or simply a kebab made with proper Turkish fayre and prepared in the right way, we highly recommend ordering from this restaurant which is one of Exeter’s gems. As the reviews suggest, not many people leave this restaurant anything less than delighted and their reputation for customer service is pretty impressive too.

Absurd Bird

As students, you guys are more than entitled to get brunch delivered when you damn well like and there is probably nowhere more suitable in Exeter, than Absurd Bird. Fusing British and American cuisines quite excellently and also catering for vegetarian and gluten free customers too, takeaway from this restaurant is highly likely to hit the spot after a boozy night on the tiles.

However, don’t be fooled into thinking this establishment only caters for brunches and lunches, as their menu is spot on for any meal of the day. Chicken and waffles, chicken wings and their famous spinach and artichoke dip are all to die for and can be delivered pretty swiftly to your home in Exeter.

You can like their Facebook page here to see what specials these guys are currently offering and even get in touch with their team to discuss your selection before ordering.

Oddfellows – Exeter

Finally, if you’re looking for something a little more traditional from your Exeter takeaway delivery then we have the perfect option and it’s not what you will expect. You may well have enjoyed some cocktails and a dance in Exeter’s Oddfellows, but they also serve up a sophisticated menu too.

Their chefs are highly trained and all their produce is of the very highest standard, resulting in a British menu that students in Exeter can get delivered right to their door. The gastro, 21st century menu also changes quarterly meaning you will never get bored of ordering from these guys.

So, if you are entertaining guests or perhaps have a date coming round and you want some takeaway that is going to exude that element of flair and opulence, why not opt for Oddfellows? They are currently serving Devonshire fish, cheeses, meats and even order their coffee locally from Taunton, which you can also add to your order with ease.

Ordering Takeaway in Exeter

These are obviously just three of a vast array of great eateries in the Exeter area. Not least due to the amazing fresh food available all around Devonshire but these are three that we think will give you a great insight into the city and its food scene. Eating out in this part of the world is a joy but ordering to your student accommodation isn’t a bad compromise, especially if you’re feeling a bit tired or the weather’s grim.

We hope you enjoy them as much as we did and be sure to examine some of the other great student guides we have right here at the Almero Student Mansions blog.
