Best Upper East Side Delivery Places

Hi Everyone,
My wife and I are always trying to find new places to order in from on the upper east side, (80th and 1st). We are getting a little bored of the usual places and wanted to see if anyone had any more interesting UES delivery options.
Let us know!

        Love Beyoglu, but they don't deliver.

      1. re: valerie

        Pio Pio is fabulous but delivery can sometimes take literally an hour or more.

        I get certain dishes from Penang (beef rendang) often, Wu Liang Ye when I want Chinese (great spicy Szechuan dumplings), occasionally Don Pedro's for Latin/Dominican but it's a little expensive for what it is. Pita Grill for salad standbys, the one on 2nd in the 80's is a reliable one. Didn't know Beyoglu did delivery, one of my faves, will have to do that myself!

          The Pita Grill on 2nd has moved to 1st but I think the phone # is unchanged.

            Pio Pio - I don't get it. It's just bland chicken that becomes passable with their green sauce. You folks who think this is delicious chicken need to get up to Wash Hts / Inwood or Jackson Hts sometime for some really good chicken. (I know, this is supposed to be a thread on places for delivery...)

            On the other hand, the few times I've ordered from Pio Pio, it's only taken them about 30 mins to deliver to me near the 86th & Lex area.

        2. Let me suggest Persepolis for very good Persian food.

          1. i love, love, love Pio Pio.
            Tokubei has great chirashi.
            jasmines has good thai.
            pita grill has good paninis.
            taco taco for mexican.
            barking dog has good comfort/american (but don't get the fries on delivery...they will be soggy)

            1. I love Spice for amazing thai (there is an even better place on 77th and 1st called Sew something, but I cannot think of the name of) Dallas BBQ's for some quick, cheap food. And one night definitely order pizza from Giorgio's it's my fave pizza in Manhattan.

     should help you out if your looking for something new, they also have all the menus and phone numbers and you can organize your search by neighborhood. It is one of the most useful food pages out there.

                The Thai place on 77th & 1st is Sa-Woy. I have eaten there a few times and was impressed and satisfied.
