Title: Best meals in JH for delivery?
Post by: jonbstrong on July 10, 2019, 10:51:23 AM
Really enjoyed the recent thread on $8 lunches in the neighborhood (http://www.jacksonheightslife.com/community/index.php?topic=18812.0) and it also got me wondering wondering (particularly as I have a foot injury meaning I'm stuck working from home at the moment) what are some good options to order food for delivery?

When my wife and I get takeaway we usually order from a local favorite of ours: Sompong Thai (https://www.yelp.com/biz/sompong-thai-jackson-heights) - our usual request being Chicken Red Curry, their house salad, Sweet Sticky Coconut Rice and Roti.

I'd like to try something new though - what are your top recommendations?

Another favorite worth mentioning is Pacific Moon (https://www.yelp.com/biz/pacific-moon-woodside?osq=pacific+moon) in Woodside - their Jalapeno chicken in particular is delicious and something a little different from what you'd expect from a Chinese takeout.

Samudra on 37th Avenue.   Indian vegetarian, but their website now seems to include meat dishes as well.

It sounds like you already have a favorite Thai, but I really like Kitchen 79.

If you're interested in rotisserie chicken, I like Pollo Inka Peru. However, there was a recent thread on here about chicken places recently and there may be additional good suggestions there. http://www.jacksonheightslife.com/community/index.php?topic=18888.0

Hope your foot heals quickly!

We don’t order delivery very often.  If we do, our first choice for Thai is Ayada.  I also order from Asian Taste 86 Indonesian food.  I learned a good tip from this site, basically I try to select some dishes that will be great now, today, and then I order another dish for a meal the next day.  Some dishes are really great the next day, and it is a treat.. 
when I was working I would often call Samudra and place an order to be picked up at 5:45, so on the way home from the subway I would stop, pick up the order and have a terrific dinner (and sometimes lunch the next day)

If you can, order from them by phone. I know it's convenient to order online - I like to order online as well,
but  Grubhub/Seamless   are REALLY shady, making fake websites without the businesses knowledge,
then charging huge fees. - see below.

e.g.
https://www.theverge.com/2019/6/28/19154220/grubhub-seamless-fake-restaurant-domain-names-commission-fees
Grubhub charges anywhere from a 3 to 15 percent commission fee depending on whether a restaurant provides their own delivery fleet. However, if a customer orders from a restaurant using Grubhub’s “marketing” tactics, whether through an app search or these unassociated websites, Grubhub can bill for an additional 20 percent commission on a single order. THE RESTAURANT NEVER KNEW THESE SITES EXISTED! These fees also extend to phone orders, which Grubhub was sued over after a lawsuit alleged the company was charging commission for bogus phone calls that did not directly result in an order

Kale Mango salad with grilled chicken from El Rico Tinto can't be beat on a hot night (phone only, 718-255-6053).

We also like to order delivery from: Sagar; Taqueria Coatzingo; Kitchen 79; Afghan Kebab and Grill (a bit pricier, but filling); sushi from East 21 or Tomo; and pasta dishes from Louie's.  And when we want fast. cheap Chinese food, Lin's Kitchen.

So hard to pick just one.  As far as food goes, we here in JH are truly blessed.
