Bethesda/Potoman Delivery

I'm looking for some great, not-too-pricey restaurants that DELIVER. I'm in Cabin John, so either Bethesda or Potomac places will work. I know that Bangkok Gardens & Louisiana Express in Bethesda both deliver, and of course, there's TakeOut Taxi / Grubhub, though I'm not overly impressed with their offerings (or the extra surcharge). Please let me know if you have any favorites -- I would love to branch out! And all types of cuisine are great, as long as it's delicious and moderately priced. Thanks!

  1. For basic chinese (or American chinese) I think Golden House isn't bad.

    1. I am in the same area and trust me, there is very little around here by way of restaurants, much less restaurants that will deliver.

      This area (loosely defined as Mass Avenue to the River and say the Beltway to Goldsboro, or even more loosely as everything inside the Beltway between River and the river) is a good five miles from Bethesda. Most places don't deliver that far.

      I didn't know that Bangkok Garden delivers (nothing on their website about it), but even if they do - all they way out here? Not sure if you mean Louisiana Kitchen and Bar (which was the first reincarnation of Louisiana Express) or the "new" Louisiana Express. The latter was truly awful and seems to be history, so I am guessing you mean Louisiana Kitchen and Bar. Nothing on their website to suggest they deliver, either.

      If you drove to Bethesda, coped with the traffic (to be a nightmare during the two years that Woodmont is closed), and paid to park, you'd have spent as much as the surcharge, not to mention stomach lining.

      Sorry, I don't know anything about Potomac except that Potomac Pizza delivers but it is really awful pizza.

        I haven't gotten delivery from Bangkok Gardens since we moved, but know they do deliver (I called to ask). And yes, Louisiana Kitchen & Bar -- it doesn't say online, but they do. I guess I'll try calling around more. I know Guardado's delivers thru Grubhub or one of those places, and I really love their seafood stew. But I haven't found much else yet.

          GrubHub has 20814, 20815, 20817. No 20816. There are very, very few restaurants in 20816 - Praline, Passion Fin, and the awful Chinese place in the shopping center on Sangamore. I think that is it. I guess you could go thru 20814 and 20817 and find out if any will deliver to 20816.

      2. I want to revise my description of China Palace. I was desperate for hot soup a couple of weeks ago and it was cold and raining so we walked over to China Palace. The soup was great. So then a couple of weeks later we tried the spring rolls. Also really good. Not greasy, very crisp, good filling. Then we asked if they would make spicy Thai basil chicken (not on the menu). They said sure. And it was very, very good. I'm not sure if it is new owners - we hadn't been there in three years - or a new chef or what, but it is really quite good now.
