While we’re all feeling the Stage 4 restrictions, the good news is there’s still a world of fresh flavour to explore via our food retailers. While in-centre dining might be off the table for now, all of your favourite Watergardens eateries – from The Marketplace, Station Streat, Food Court and centre wide– are busy dishing up the goods for both delivery and takeaway pickup.
From healthy to indulgent, snack to feast, savoury to sweet, we’ve got something for every mood. Mix and match some of these great options for an at-home spread that will leave you wanting more. Even better: you can pick up some takeaway on your weekly shop or have it home delivered – it’s never been easier!
NOTE: Most of our retailers offer a mix of takeaway and home delivery via delivery apps, though some are takeaway only. Follow the key below to find out how you can order from your favourites.
