Chinese food delivery

Original post made by hungry on Jan 22, 2012

Why don't Palo Alto Chinese restaurants deliver? In Mountain View and Redwood City and every other city in America there are plenty of choices for fast free delivery, but not here! Why is that?

I agree with you. A lot of restaurants participate in those waiter.com type services, but they have a pretty steep minimum charge - its really more for offices, or maybe a large party.

I didn't realize that they had it in our neighboring cities though - I always thought it was more of a regional thing, like its California and you're just expected to drive to get your own food.

I'm sure many people on here have lived elsewhere at one time and can relate, but I remember living in Manhattan and ordering Chinese food, and it would literally come in like 15 minutes. Its like they knew exactly what I was going to order, and were already on the way or something.

I'm not a fan of delivered food, but Su Hong says they deliver: Web Link

There's not a lot of Asian food in Palo Alto for some reason. Mountain View has a much better selection.

Jing Jing delivers locally. I don't recall the delivery fee, but it's not exorbitant. Ming's delivers also.
