11 Best Turkish Food Delivery Websites and Apps


Turkish cuisine is awesome but Turkish food delivered to your doorstep is even better. In the last decade, the number of food ordered online via apps and websites kept growing in Turkey.

If you are used to Uber Eats, you can be disappointed to learn that UberEats does not work in Istanbul or anywhere in Turkey. Yet, Turkey has many food delivery websites that provide the same level of service.

Turkish food delivery websites are local brands, and you may not know most of them. Don’t worry. In this post, I will tell you about the most common and reliable food delivery websites.

Now, more than half of the fast-food orders are online food orders in Istanbul. Every year, more websites are opening to provide food delivery services.

I will also provide information on how you can use each of these websites and their English language support level. If you want a quick answer, here are the best websites and short info about them.

Yet, Yemeksepeti is the biggest Online Food Delivery Website in Turkey. As of 2020, Yemeksepeti, the most used website in Turkey, reached 19 million users.

All the websites listed below also have phone apps.

In a nutshell,

  • Yemeksepeti, you can order almost any meal or fast food. Most Turkish restaurants and fast-food chains are present on this website. This is the one that I use to order fast food.
  • Yemeksepeti also created a new website called Yemeksepeti Banabi. You order snacks and market items from Banabi and your orders are delivered in 15 to 30 minutes.

  • If that’s not enough and you’re looking for something else to eat, check out the A101, Carrefour, and Macrocenter. These online shopping websites of national chains of grocery stores..

Before I start writing my reviews, I want to point out the language problem. The biggest problem for foreigners in Turkey when shopping online is the language barrier. Most of the shopping sites do not have English language support. 

Yet, there is a solution to this problem.  I explained how to use Google’s Translate tool to translate websites and images with few clicks. Check my article “3 Ways to Use Google Translate in a Foreign Country”

In any case, I detailed each website’s English language support level.

Let’s get into more detail.

Turkish cuisine is not limited to Kebaps. The real local food is about vegetables, fruits and olive oil.

Yemeksepeti

Known for: Provides service for all Turkey, fast food delivery

English Support: Yemeksepeti supports the English language as a website. Yet, the restaurant menus may not be in English. For this reason, you should also use google translate to operate this website.

Yemeksepeti, which I have used as a subscriber for about 15 years. Yemeksepeti is like Uber Eats. It lists all restaurants near you, and you order your food directly from Yemeksepeti.

Yemeksepeti is free to use. Restaurants pay the commissions to Yemeksepeti. Your order comes to your door free of charge. Some restaurants apply a minimum order amount policy.

Yemeksepeti also tracks the performance of the restaurants and displays it on their website. Because of the restaurant’s ranking concerns, restaurants provide better service when they deliver through Yemeksepeti. I always use Yemeksepeti for ordering food and not directly ordering from the restaurant.

I would strongly advise checking the restaurant’s rating before ordering your food. Compared to its competitors, Yemeksepeti has the highest number of restaurants available.

Yemeksepeti works even in the remotest places. When traveling, If I do not know the city that I am in, I always order from the highest score restaurant. For this reason, I managed to enjoy very delicious meals on my travels.

You can make the payment via Yemeksepeti, by credit card, or at the door. The delivery time is usually 30 minutes.

Yemeksepeti’s Banabi

Known for: Wide coverage in Turkey, supermarket and snack delivery in 15-30 minutes.

It is Yemeksepeti’s new service. Its service area is growing all around Turkey.

They give me a 20 TL discount for my first order from their website. They have a good variety of supermarket items, groceries, and snacks.

(UPDATE: Later on, we continued to use Yemeksepeti’s Banabi, we are especially happy about their quick delivery at night time when all the shops are all closed.)

Getir is my mom’s favorite, she loves to order snacks and ice cream late at night. Getir is a new website but in a short time, Getir became a well-known and trusted website.

Getir is the biggest competitor of Yemeksepeti. They provide fast food ordering, food items like Yemeksepeti.

Getir currently operates only big cities in Turkey (Istanbul, Izmir, Ankara, Bursa, Izmir, Bodrum, Bursa, Tekirdag, Eskişehir, Yalova and more cities are added each month.).

They aim to meet their customer’s needs 24/7. However, Yemeksepeti mostly dominates the market in terms of fast food delivery. Although Getir is a reliable food ordering website, it needs to be developed much more to reach Yemeksepeti’s service range.

One of my favorite stores is Macro Center. Although it is a bit expensive, I have always liked Macro Center because of its product quality and imported products that are not available in normal markets.

I also love their service quality and shop design. However, Macro markets do not have an extensive network of stores and distribution like other supermarkets.

They are present only in 15 provinces in Turkey (Ankara, Izmir, Antalya, Bolu, Istanbul, Kayseri, Kırıkkale, Konya, Karaman, Malatya, Mersin, Samsun, Istanbul, Ordu, and Tekirdag). They have approximately 280 Stores in these provinces.
