i bet there have been a million posts on this topic. but i've been looking for a few days now and i can't find them, so i guess i'll just ask.

i'm currently living in midtown toronto (rosedale subway station) and i'm looking for GOOD delivery. we have a pizza hut on the corner but that doesn't count as food. my husband and i are relatively new to toronto and very rarely go out to eat or order in, so we don't really know what's around. we're open to pretty much every type of food but don't have a huge budget. we've called around but are having a sort of hard time finding places that will deliver here, and when we can we don't know if they will be good or not.

so... any good, inexpensive restaurants that deliver to a large radius?

help us please!! we're hungry :)

      that's where i've been looking but they don't list any reviews... also it seems that they charge $7 for delivery which is sort of ridiculous...

      Looks like you may live a wee bit too far south for Tabule, but see if they'll bend the rules for you... It's very yummy Middle Eastern food, and is a nice change from the ordinary delivery options. Check out their website:

        looks like you're just outside of the Amaya Express delivery area too, but they will deliver for an extra charge -

          We like Thai Jasmine and The Fireplace Restaurant (sort of 70s style Cantonese-ish Chinese food to be eaten on the couch in front of a movie) for delivery... Delivery is free on orders over $15 before tax...and we are in Yorkville, so I don't imagine you are any further away...

          As to eating out in your 'hood, Pastis Express, and Rebel House (I have had a couple of bad experiences in the past there, but had a nice brunch there today), are within spitting distance on Yonge, Brownes Bistro is up Yonge at Woodlawn, though it's a little pricier...and some people love the Black Camel for lunch... Veda at Davenport does Indian takeout...some people like Lakes at 1112 Yonge...Thai Magic is at 1118 Yonge...and I could go on. You actually live in a decent area for eating out!

            For healthy Indian (not your typical Indian though) I order from vedatakeout.com which is in Yorkville and a location on Church. Inexpensive and yummy. Plus, delivery is free.

              Hi Giftable,

              If you like Indian/Sri-Lankin food there is a great little place pretty close to you called Rashnaa . . . There food is amazing and it is really well priced . . . Their delivery area is really big so I am sure getting to you will be no problem . . . I like the Devil Chicken, Kottu Roti, Vegetable Delight Rice (it comes with many curried vegetables) and their curried beets and squash . . . They also make a great butter chicken dish that is not too creamy or rich which I find at most places . . . let's face it... I like everything I've tried on the menu!! (which is close to everything) . . . I really love this place and I highly recommend it to others . . . If you order from them you will not be dissappointed . . . Here is a link for them...

              Enjoy,

              SB

                thanks everyone :-D we'll definitely be trying some of these places in the next few days (we're moving out so cooking is getting more and more challenging everyday)

                by the way the other night we ended up ordering from china garden on bloor and avenue (we had been there once before for eat in) and it was pretty good! considering it's typical greasy chinese food, it was cheap and the shrimp dumplings were fantastic. the food came fast and was still warm which is sort of rare. the hubby didn't love his chicken and vegetables (the chicken wasn't great quality) but the fried rice was tasty

                thanks for all the pointers-- and by all means, keep them coming :)

                  Right at the corner of Roxborough and Yonge is Cafe Doria. They make excellent soups, salads, panini's and the best thin crust pizza. Highly recommend it. That, and second Pastis Express.
