Hoboken Food Delivery Overload!

10/16/2009:

Some places excel, others do not – WHY?

Over the years, I’ve heard stories across the board of various restaurants that could deliver well (like some pizza places) – and others that are consistently sloooooowwwww!

Two such “slow” places serve Indian food – Karma Cafe and India on the Hudson. Since the weather was crappy last night – deliveries were taking 90 minutes or longer! We just picked ours up – and saw this backlog of orders waiting to go out. While the food is very enjoyable, what is so hard to get about delivery? What slows it down? The kitchen? The type of cuisine? Prep time? The delivery mechanism? Bad management?

do they use a delivery service, because those delivery services are pretty horrible

I love the food at Karma, but don’t eat there too often as it’s too spicy for my husband and the food doesn’t travel well. Even if I pick it up fresh and carry it home, it doesn’t taste as good after the walk as it does if I sit there. Also, I like their foofy girly drinks. Especially the blue one.

Karma is one of the best restaurants in Hoboken. always factor in the long delivery time, they’re THAT good. Yeung II (and other chinese food places) are amazing with the delivery times, don’t even attempt a quick shower after you hang up with them…

It smells like a used diaper with Indian food in it!

I never have a problem with Karma Kafe. Usually delivered within 30 minutes. I get pretty freaked out when chinese food is at my door just a few minutes after i hang up the phone.
