What typical restaurants, food delivery services, and/or takeout options are popular among expatriates?

There is food delivery but it isn’t great. Pizza places deliver for a fee. Most restos offer takeout. There are burger shops and every kind of Asian food you can imagine. BSB has a great food scene. - Jan 2021

Excellent Japanese food. Many other kinds of food, of varying quality. It is tough to find restaurants because information about them is spread by word of mouth. Walk around neighborhoods and you will find lots of places. Kiulap is a great neighborhood to get to know first. - Aug 2014

For familiar brands from the U.S., there's one McDonald's and many Dairy Queens, Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf cafes and KFCs. There are some very good Thai, Japanese, Italian, Middle Eastern and Indian restaurants. Most food isn't expensive. Local food can start at US$1, but expect to spend about US$15/person on average for dinner and US$10 for lunch. - Nov 2013

Wide variety of restaurants: Malay, Chinese, Thai, Korean, Indian etc. Also fast food. - Dec 2008

The food here is great. Pork only in non-Halal Chinese places. There are even a few 'western' restaurants, one MacDonald's, KFC, etc. Dairy Queen! Lots of yummy restaurants available - Thai, sushi, Malay, Chinese, etc, etc. - Jan 2008
