It's the first time the flat-pack furniture giant's famous meatballs can be delivered to your doorstep as they're usually only available in the chain's 21 UK stores.
But the deal – which is on Uber Eats – is just for fans living in central London and it only lasts five days.
Meatball fans lucky enough to live or work within two miles of Ikea's pop-up kitchen in Geffrye Street, Hackney, can choose from three set menus on the Uber Eats app or website from Friday (November 16) until Tuesday (November 20).
They range in price from £10 to feed two or £20 to feed four – so it will cost £5 per person whichever order you pick – and they also come with free Ikea homeware products.
For £10, you can choose The Snug set menu for two people, which will give you 20 meatballs, mash potato or chips, cream sauce, lingonberry jam and even two Daim chocolate cakes for dessert.
Everything you get when you order Ikea food online
THE SNUG – £10 – 2 people
THE FORMAL – £10 – 2 people
THE FAMILY PLATTER – £20 – 4 people
Vegetarians don't have to miss out though as there's also The Formal set menu, which will give you 20 veggie balls, butternut squash, courgette and kale hash and two plain sugar donuts.
If you want to feed a crowd, you can order The Family Platter, which costs £20 and gives you 20 meatballs, 20 veggie balls, butternut squash, courgette and kale hash, cream sauce and lingonberry jam – as well as two Daim cakes and two donuts.
The food will be delivered in Ikea's iconic blue plastic bags Frakta bags – and it will also come with Ikea wine glasses, placemats, cushion covers, throws, napkins, scented candles, an LED light, and even a fake flower, depending on what set menu you order.
You will only be able to order one set menu per Uber Eats account per day and you won't be able to swap out any of the items on the set menus.
The deal is only a trial run for now but it is believed that if it's successful, Ikea and Uber Eats may roll out the offer across the country so that everyone can enjoy the famous meatballs at home.
Ikea said it is launching the deal to celebrate the Swedish tradition of "fredagsmys" – where people start off the weekend by staying in.
Ellie Pniok, commercial food manager for IKEA UK & Ireland said: “We know that for many people meatballs on demand is a cause for celebration.
"Together with Uber Eats we hope that it helps all of us find the ultimate cosiness and makes staying in a reason to celebrate”.
Henry Harding, head of marketing for Uber Eats UK and Ireland added: "We love giving people the chance to relax and unwind in their homes and what better way to do this than by partnering with IKEA to create the ultimate cosy setting complete with delicious food straight to their door.”
Uber Eats is available in 75 cities and towns across the UK with plans to expand into 100 by the end of 2018.
