Queen Anne Take Out??

foodseeker Aug 11, 2009 04:47 PM

We will be staying in the Upper Queen Anne neighborhood with a little baby - which means we'll probably be brining in take out for dinner a few times. Any recs for great food that can be delivered or picked up in that area? We love everything - Thai, Indian, Meditteranean, etc. Thanks so much!!

    Delivery: Pagliacci, Restaurants on the Run .com. Thai Kitchen. Olympic Pizza.

    take out-- the restaurants on the top of the Hill, Pasta & Co, Metropolitan Market.

      Consider Eat Local, around McGraw & QA. They make tasty dinners from healthy natural ingredients and freeze them in various portion sizes. Many are packaged in returnable glass containers. I haven't yet eaten from there (unfortately I don't live in that neighborhood and I happened by it on a day when the frozen food would have melted).

        Via Tribunali has a happy hour deal on take-out pizza, and better than Pagliacci (but no delivery).

          Yes I agree. Via Tribunali has been my go to place for pizza over the years!

          Orrapin, just off the corner of Queen Anne Ave and Boston St. is the best Thai take-out around. Delicious. Also, if you want some yummy cheap mexican take-out than Malena's is the place to be, it's a hole-in-the-wall a few blocks off the main drag over by Ken's Market and Macrina Bakery (excellent pastries) on McGraw St. Enjoy!

            I love Pasta & Co. It's not cheap, but everything I've ever tried there has been great.

              I lived in the area and found that after trying many options I liked- Orrapin for Thai, Ottoto for sushi (get the combo), Malena's for Mexican (get the pork burrito), Macrina for sandwiches and breads, Ken's Market for market runs, Olympic Pizza for a small flavorful pie, Viet Ahn (sp?) for pho, and Pasta & Co for bulk pastas and salads... Hope this helps!

                  On Upper Queen Anne I like Malenas Taco Shop and Ototo Sushi. There's also Via Tribunali pizza and if you're around during farmers market season there's food and the Skillet trailer next to Bartells every Thursday. They should all have to-go available.

                    Yuck, Olympic Pizza? That's got to be, hands down, the worst pizza I've ever eaten. Why don't you just pour some ketchup onto a flatbread and squeeze some Kraft Velvetta on top?

                    Ototo is good sushi. GF tried Eat Local when I wasn't around to cook, and she gave it a thumbs down. Orrapin is the best Thai on top of the hill, but can still be hit or miss. I don't get the love for Malena's, but it will do in a pinch and is cheap.

                    What I will add (and mentioned in reply to a similar post awhile back) is that too few people on top of the hill think off-the-hill when it comes to delivery. For example, Pronto Pizza in Magnolia and Mad Pizza in South Link Union (and Fremont) both deliver to QA and are both better than Pagliacci's or Elliot Bay.
