The ultimate guide to food and grocery deliveries in Bahrain

We all start the week with good intentions: we’re going to go to the supermarket on Saturday night, plan a week’s worth of meals and save ourselves some money in the process.

But then life happens, and before you know it you’ve ordered takeaway three times in four days and your budget’s gone out the window.

There’s no judgment here at Time Out, we all know how tempting the food from the Kingdom’s restaurants can be when your stomach is rumbling before you’ve even had a chance to turn the hob on.

Read on for our guide on all the spots you can order food and groceries from in the Kingdom.

Alosra Supermarket
Alosra Supermarket is one of the biggest supermarket chains in Bahrain, and you can order fresh produce, non-perishable items and kitchen ware online. If your order is about BHD15, delivery is free – below this it is BHD1.5. You have to pick a two-hour delivery slots, which will be from 10am-noon, 1pm-3pm, 4pm-6pm or 6pm-8pm. If items you want are unavailable, you can either choose to rearrange, or get the unavailable items delivered later on. Conveniently, you can pay online with your card or pay cash once delivered.

Carriage is your one-stop shop for everything you need delivered. Restaurants? There are hundreds of options. Groceries? Straight to your door. Forgotten its mother’s day and need flowers last minute? Choose from local stores and get a bouquet to your nearest and dearest before they even realise.

GetBaqala
Founded in 2016, this Bahraini-based start-up is unlike most other ecommerce stores in that it does not have physical stores, and instead keeps it stock in a warehouse. To use GetBaqala, you’ll need to install the app on your phone. From there, you’ll be able to buy fresh produce to be delivered to your door – and if you’re not happy, you can reject it straight away. There’s no limit to how much you have to order, but orders above BHD5 get free delivery, while anything below this has a fee of 500 fils. There are two-hour delivery slots to choose from.
Get Baqala is available on iOS and Android.

Hunger Station
Hunger Station started out in Dammam, Saudi Arabia, back in 2012, and has since expanded across the causeway into Bahrain. You can order from hundreds of restaurants divided by district through the app and pay online.

LuLu Hypermarket
LuLu Hypermarket is so much more than a supermarket, offering up all the usual products and then some. It recently began delivering in Bahrain, offering up slots between 11am and 2pm, 3pm and 5pm, 5pm and 7pm and 7pm to 9pm. You have to spend at least BHD5 for home delivery, and delivery costs vary between BHD1 and BHD2.5, depending on what you buy.

Machla
Machla is also a relatively young company, starting out in 2017. Machla will deliver most products to your door within three to four hours, or even faster if you choose priority delivery. Orders above BHD15 have free delivery, those below this threshold will cost BHD2.5. You’ll find all the usual grocery products here.

Talabat
Unlike Deliveroo and UberEats, Talabat’s business operates principally by connecting you to individual restaurants and their delivery drivers, rather than relying on its own. It’s the largest food ordering business in the Middle East and is popular across the GCC. You’ll find hundreds of restaurants on the app or website that will deliver to your door.
