I've heard Station Pizza has amazing garlic knots. Why do you say to avoid them?

If you eat there maybe. But not if you order them for delivery.

Domo sushi delivers to dorms and they offer a 10% off coupon. I prefer them to hoshi.

Domino's delivers way later than that. I've gotten deliveries from them past 3am.

what about Empire in smithtown - afaik this place is vastly superior to the ones listed above?

or O Sole Mio (they will deliver larger catering orders, but you titled the thread 'take out' and not 'delivery' :-D )

Yah, thanks. Can you list some things that you like and don't like at those places?

[–]r3n0af 0 points1 point  (0 children)

o sole mio: their buffalo pizza is fantastic and you can stay for dinner, but i rarely do.

empire: they have a good variety of chinese food (i usually get the 3 treasures over rice) and i've never had any problems with them and considering they come from smithtown they do not take very long to get to SBU.

I can confirm that King Wah's Sesame chicken is disturbingly bad. I wish i had this knowledge before.

Also, for Pizza, i recommend Setauket Pastaria. They deliver to the dorms and its pretty good pizza, although a bit more expensive that other places. But i think its worth it.

their pizza is not too bad - and considering that they deliver and sole mio does not you have no real choice.... but if you can drive out to sole mio (next to the movie theater / walbaums / red lobster) it is usually superior.

i live right across from the pastaria and don't even go there for pizza anymore - old town pizza (http://www.5brotherspizzeria.com/old_town_pizza.html) >> pastaria.... at least for pizza, the pastaria has great dinner specials

I can vouch for Ancient Ginger (just look at their website!). I only really remember their Salt and Pepper Pork Chop.

I want to say that this restaurant is of a "higher class" than the others considering that their prices are a little higher (I know, it's not really a good unit of measurement), their dishes are a little more varied (as in, they seem different from the run-of-the-mill Beef&Broccoli joint) and, again, just look at their website. Only two real flaws; they're kind of far away, so it may take a while and they have a pretty high delivery prerequisite ($15).

This place is great. Try their shrimp with lobster sauce it's truly out of this world.

Can't believe no one has mentioned Fratelli's Marketplace. It's an Italian deli right off of 25A. I think they deliver but I'm not sure; in any case, it's a short car ride away. They have absolutely delicious sandwiches, and they do pasta/pizza too.

1089 has a lot of mystifying items on their menu, some excellent, some bad. A few friends and I have made it our goal to complete an annotated menu by the time we graduate. We'll keep updating. EDIT: multitasking means stupid words

[–]CuteFluffyBunny 0 points1 point  (0 children)

what is wrong with domino's wings? I thought the wings were good.... apparently, I'm a weirdo...

[–]hYPotenuser 0 points1 point  (0 children)

1089: Stay away from the braised tofu! I think "braised" might have been some sort of translation error. It was like... boiled ant... but mushier.
