Asian Delivery Options in Ann Arbor

Hi All,

I'm looking for some good Asian (Chinese, Thai, Japanese) delivery options in Ann Arbor. My husband and I have varied schedules for the next few months and I'm going to be dining alone during the week a lot. On the nights that I don't feel like cooking I figured I could order in but so far the only place I've ever gotten delivery from was Anthony's Gourmet for pizza.

We live in Kerrytown so must be able to deliver there.

What are some of your favorites?

Thanks!

  1. My teen son & I concurred recently that San Fu remains consistently solid. Very good hot & sour soup.
    San Fu is in the South Main Market so will certainly deliver your way.

    My other old standbys (Lucky Kitchen, Gourmet Garden) have declined--overly sweet/greasy.

      Thank you! Any other dishes you like from San Fu besides the soup?

      1. re: trapani

        I would agree that the regular dishes from Lucky Kitchen are no great shakes. You also might try the Malay dishes from Happy Wok on Stadium. Try the Laksa Noodle with Shrimp.

          I love this place. Kind of far for delivery to where you live perhaps? My favorite item is an eggplant dish on the back of the menu- they have 2 of these and I think the better of the two is the one that comes in 2 sizes. Crispy light chunks of goodness, really decadent.
          I moved which is probably a good thing for my arteries.

            Yeah, that's another good one. Not everything on the Malay-Singaporean menu is good (the Nasi Lemak is subpar), but some of it is, and they're dishes that aren't available anywhere else in the metro Detroit area or within several hundred miles.

            1. re: Jim M

              Just FYI that there is a Malaysian restaurant in Troy, if you are looking for that cuisine...

              My co-worker who lived in Malaysia for a time likes the place, I've gone to lunch with her there and only had one thing I wouldn't get again--I think it was Penang Char Kway Teow

              1. re: coney with everything

                Not sure exactly what the regional cuisines are, but the dishes at Happy Wok are mostly different from those at Satay House, which I also like (and is cheap). I think Happy Wok is Singaporean.

      2. I've never had delivery from them, but try Lucky Kitchen up by North Campus. They deliver, and they have some authentic Chinese dishes written on cards and taped to the wall. You might have to go there for takeout once to find them, since I don't think they're on the online menus. I think the Central Campus branch also has them.

        1. Re San Fu, I can't help you (I eat take-out Chinese on rare occasions these days.) It is a pretty standard menu.

          1. Yes to San Fu! Best option in my opinion. I don't like their lo mein. Like their moo goo gai pan, general tso and home style pork.

            Evergreen on Plymouth might deliver to you. Ok options, a bit pricey. Paradise in the colonnade on east Eisenhower might come out to you, and they do Chinese & Vietnamese.

            You're probably better off picking up stuff on your way home from work, if that's an option. Lots of the Korean places are the best Asian food in town.

              I don't have a car at the moment so it turns out that delivery really is likely my best option. The only Asian restaurant on my walk from South Main home is No Thai and that isn't really cutting it for me.

              1. re: Elyssa

                Have you been to kosmos in Kerrytown? Decent bi bim bop and bulgogi. Outstanding twiggum (Korean tempura).

                1. re: charlesbois

                  Yes I've been a few times for lunch. Nice option when I work from home.

            2. Also I should mention Indian delivery would be welcome (although I work pretty close to Shalimar so I can always get carryout).

                  Oh that's good to know. I really like Hut-K!

              1. current has some detailed reviews- helpful w/ what to order for adventuresome eaters.

                  I like the variety of the Happy Wok menu, so will try that next.

                  Gourmet Garden has been my standby, but with mixed success (several entrees have lacked a tangy sauce).

                  I recently ordered Mongolian Beef and Pa-Nang Curry from Old Siam in the Westgate shopping center; both my wife and I were less than satisfied with the portion size and the flavor (again, not enough oomph to the sauce in the curry).

                2. here's a link from a few years ago about Plymouth Rd. Lucky Kitchen's Chinese Menu offerings:

                  1. webpage lists Lucky Kitchen specials, looks more interesting than usual fare, have not tried yet:
