Stockholm - Post Report Question and Answers

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

Asian, burgers. - Dec 2020

Anything/everything. Stockholm has become a gourmet city with Michelin-rated restaurants, lots of delivery options, and ethnic cuisine of all types in abundance. The exception is a good burrito joint. Chipotle could make a killing here. - Sep 2020

We have not explored delivery that much. Lidingo has a few good restaurants, but even take out is never fast. - May 2020

Eating out in Stockholm is an expensive endeavor. Restaurants are generally very good, and chefs take their work seriously. However, service lags behind what you'd find in the US. There are delivery services (, but again - very expensive. Delivery of two burgers and fries from a local burger joint will run nearly $50.

The best deal for eating out is at lunch. The daily special (dagens lunch) at most restaurants will run from $10-15 and generally includes coffee and salad. - Jan 2017

Most big chains are here, though most restaurants are small and independent. Everything is available, including some amazing Michelin-rated restaurants. Eating out isn't cheap though; food is definitely the biggest chunk of our budget. - May 2015

There is McDonald's here and some local fast food places. McDonald's is not too expensive but everything else is. - Aug 2014

Many Swedish restaurants available, both traditional and up and coming chefs with new ideas. Pizza parlors, Chinese, Thai, cafes everywhere, American chains (Fridays, Hard Rock, Mc Donalds, Burger King, Quiznos, Pizza Hut ). - Oct 2008

Plenty of decent restaurants and tons of sushi bars. For American food we have McDonalds, Burger King, Hard Rock Cafe, TGIFridays, Pizza Hut, Subway. - Aug 2008
