Chinese Delivery in Providence?

Can anyone recommend a place to order phenomenal Chinese (or Thai) for delivery in Providence?

Thanks & happy holidays!

  1. Good luck. Providence doesn't have all that many places that deliver in general, and the few that do are passable, at best. You'll most likely need to use a third party service, such as

    1. Actually, Mu Mu on Atwells, one of the best Chinese choices around for sure, is now delivering. So there ya go.

      Also, I just got a mailing from Little Chopsticks on Smith Hill, which is reopening and delivering. I've never actually eaten there, but I know lots of people who loved it in its previous incarnation.

        Sweet! When did that start? They're right near me, to boot!

        Thanks for the tip.

      2. Shanghai on Thayer has *decent*, but not phenomenal Chinese - but they definitely deliver.

        Whatever you do, don't get Moon Star! It will be the greasiest meal you ever had... We used to say "If you can't see through the greasy paper bag, it's not Moon Star!" However, they will deliver in practically a blizzard, so depending on how desperate you are....

          Little Chopsticks does deliver now. We ordered from them last night, and it was great - better than Shanghai and better than its former incarnation.

            Anyone know if they deliver to the Armory?

              Called Mu Mu tonight and they said no delivery. :(

                We live close to the Armory, and they have delivered to us!

                  I wonder if it was because it was a Friday night?

                    Oops, I was responding to your question re: Little Chopsticks. For some reason, my reply ended up under your Mu Mu post.

                    For what it's worth, I've never heard that Mu Mu delivers until I read it here... so it may just be a rumor. Bummer.

                      Ahhh. Gotcha. We actually received a Little Chopsticks menu in the mail Saturday. We'll have to check them out.

                      Happy New Year, everyone.

                        Not a rumor with regard to Mu Mu delivering. I've had them deliver to the Armory. Not sure why they would say no, maybe they've changed their minds about it, or maybe it was a weird night for them.
