Usually ready in 15 minutes.They have an app too, and give discounts and points to returning customers with or without the app. The website remembers your email! Keeping up with the times :,-)I have also eaten in and love the vibe too.

Thai Avenue Restaurant 4791 Tilghman St, Allentown Thai • $$

“I wish I had a photo to capture how much I love this restaurants food, but I always forget because I dig right in! Every time, quality is 10/10. I generally use take-out and they are more than accommodating to special requests, like making sure the dish is fully vegan. Every employee is so kind and excels at customer service. The dinner portions are plentiful, always enough for two servings. This is my favorite authentic Thai go-to place in Allentown! Highly recommend vegan drunken noodles and honestly anything they make, you will love.”

“If you are a broke college student and like good cheapish food, come get your fill here. If you and a couple friends split food you can get lots of good dishes at good prices. My advice would be to go for dumpling and wonton based dishes as they have tended to be better in my experience. Favorite dishes so far have been the pork dumplings and boneless spare ribs.”

La cocina del Abuelo - Grandpa’s Kitchen 621 Hamilton St, Allentown Mexican • $$

“By far the best family, small business experience l've ever had. Even though it's a smaller space, two young women accommodated our group of 10 people by putting tables together and waiting on the entire time.They offered recommendations and insider details of how everything is prepared. The owner came out personally and spoke to us of the quality of the food. He offered us samples of the lengua which was so soft and delicious. The salmon burrito was crispy and just salty enough. Highly recommend that dish for your entree and the homemade tres leches cake or the homemade Nutella churros. Perfect experience.”
