Palo Alto Takeout - Need Your Best Ideas

jhulla | Jan 24, 2008 07:16 PM

Wife and I just moved to downtown Palo Alto and are looking for your best ideas for takeout and casual meals. Please share.

In the past three days, we've tried:

1. Back A Yard Caribbean, Menlo Park: Delicious and friendly. I had some jerk chicken and fried plantains. The chicken was spicy without being overpowering. The plantains were yummy. Definitely will be added to the rotation.

2. Darbar: Ordered some basics: a lamb dish, some channa masala and some samosas. The samosas were pretty good. The lamb and channa were average. Not bad. And I'd consider going back since they were convenient.

3. Pasta?: This was terrible. The pasta was overcooked. The sauces were bland. It was overpriced. Not going back.

Clearly, we need hound advice for:

- Takeout Chinese?
- Takeout Indian?
- Takeout Thai?
- Other promising takeout places?

Thanks!
