The Menulogies 2021

Submissions close in

The Menulog Restaurant Awards are back! To add some excitement to the year, we’ve added a little glitz and glamour to the occasion, and present to you, The Menulogies.

Beautiful people of Australia, it’s time to step out in your finery and fanciest dress to strut down the virtual orange carpet as the biggest online takeaway event of the year is finally here, The Menulogies!

The Menulogies is an annual celebration of the most memorable & remarkable takeaway restaurant performers of the year, delivering show-stopping meals to Aussies across the nation.

This year we have a stellar lineup of awards for both our restaurants, and for you, our loyal hungry fans!

Get involved by voting for your fave takeaway to win your state’s People’s Choice Award, and make sure to check out the winners of our trending Awards, celebrating the key milestones over the last year that Menulog has been by your side for.

And that’s not all. We’ll also be undertaking an Aussie-wide casting call for the best takeaway enthusiasts and critics across the country to form our Menulog Armchair Academy and help us find Australia’s best restaurants!

Best of luck to all the nominees this year!


This is our most acclaimed award, the show-stopper. The People’s Choice Menulogie is open to any Menulog Restaurant Partner to nominate their business from now until Sunday 24 October 2021.

Make sure you tell us why your restaurant is the most elite of the takeaway dining-scene, so Menulog fans can read about your restaurant and vote for their favourite right here from 27 October until 10 November 2021.

The national winner of the People’s Choice Award, as well as the winners in each State and Territory, will be crowned on 22 November 2021 (NSW, ACT, QLD, VIC, SA, NT, WA + TAS)
