Best Delivery Service, order online – very easy to order online. They have a extensive menu online with pictures and description. I placed my order online and the order taker call me back right away to confirm my order. I received my order promtly and food are HOT AND DELICIOUS. I can even order at work as they deliver to financial districts as well.
A Little Let Down – After reading all the positive reviews, I was a little disappointed after ordering dinner from Brandy's.
The food was ok, pretty average as far as flavors go, but nothing like it was represented in the photos on their website.
I ordered the Gon-Pou chicken and the Brandy's Chow Mein. The pictures
show lots of meat and shrimp. In actually, you had to look for what few pieces there were.
The Picture shows the Gon-Pou as mainly chicken complimented by vegetables.
In the dish I received, chicken amounted to maybe 10% of the dish.
I realize at $7.95 I shouldn't expect too much, but charge me a buck or two more and
give me what you show online.
Slow Delivery, Good Food... – My husband and I have ordered from them 3 times now...First time: Tuesday night, fast delivery, good food, discovered "mild" is still pretty spicy. Second time: Saturday night: slow delivery (they said 45-60 mins and it took 90mins to get here and was luke warm at best), still good food, gave them the benefit of the doubt 'cause it was Saturday night. Third time: Sunday afternoon (not exactly prime time), SLOW DELIVERY...AGAIN (we are now noticing a trend), food is still not here and it has been an hour and 15 mins....I'M HUNGRY!!!!
Best Chinese food in city – If you like hot food this is THE place. "Medium is hot." Egg rolls are amazing, gung pao chicken rocks. This place also has a great lunch menu - a lot of food for $6.
The best takeout – They have the best website that you can order from and a huuuuge menu. Everything I've had was great and I'll definitely be ordering again on a lazy sunday.
Great Spicey food – I love this place. I have only eaten here once before but when they say spicey... .THEY MEAN SPICEY. The chicken, the pork, you name it, it all taste great.... Can't wait to dine in again!
Languishing on the Med – For a taste of wholesome Mediterranean cuisine, with healthful veggies and a courteous staff, you could do worse than La Mediterranee, at 2210 Fillmore. Wedged in among shops and other restaurants, in a long, rather narrow setting, La Mediterranee provides food for thought in a charming setting.
While the portions could be larger, the combination of delectable morsels provides enough of a sample of the cuisines of Greece, Italy, Israel, etc. to whet one's appetite for a great voyage to the Med.
Very Good Food – I have been going to BrandyHo's for 16 years.
It is always a good dining experience.
The dumplings are very good and the smoked ham or chicken is awesome.
The other reviews are correct when they say that the food is hot.
I generally eat very hot food and usually order it mild to mildly hot here.
BrandyHo's is well worth going to.
You better like it hot. – My first experience with Brandy Ho's was through delivery. It took about 50 minutes for me to receive the food (promised delivery between 45-60 minutes). When I was ordering (fried dumplings, eggplant, sweet and sour chicken), I was told that "medium" was pretty scipy but I ignored the warning. As a started eating I was amazed by how spicy the food was, especially the eggplant. Overall, it was good and I'll probably be a returning customer.
I order from here too much – Ive only eaten in the restaurant once, and although the ambiance isn't the greatest, it is nice that you can see them cooking the food. I order from their delivery service, and they always arrive promptly and the food is always excellent. If you don't like spicy chinese food, it is a good thing to let them know when ordering.
