I am thinking that maybe the further you live from the restaurant, the quicker the delivery, We are at least 15 blocks away and after placing my order, I generally have to grab my wallet since the intercom seems to go off in seconds. Even if there is a wait, I'd say it's worth it. Their food is far superior to any other Chinese takeout place. Try the Grand Marnier Shrimp and the Singapore Curry Rice. I have a cousin who comes down from Westchester just to have it. I will agree that the woman who takes the orders can often be curt - but hey, she is at least accurate and you won't get a wrong order.

We ordered delivery on a wednesday night. They were very pleasant on the phone and the food came within 10-15 minutes. But aside from a very decent scallion pancake, the noodle soups were utterly flavorless. The roast pork was tough and bland. Both soups were packed with extra bean sprouts to make it seem like there was more food than there actually was, and the noodles arrived sadly clumped together. Good service, but the food needs some work.

The delivery is always busy but the waiting time can be a little long. I used to get the food in 15 to 20 minutes 6 or 7 years ago. But these days, especially on Sunday the delivery can take 45 minutes or a bit longer. The girls always remind me to order 45 minutes ahead on Sunday as Sunday is usually the busiest day for delivery at Noodles 28. I have since ordered my food 45 minutes or 1 hour ahead in order to be able to eat the time I would like to eat with the kids. But I figure the extra step is worthwhile for the consistently good food. No complain and Bravo to the staffs.

I used to order from here from Work because of the lunch special. The food was OK - but the Scallion pancakes were GREAT! One of the best in the city.

I like ordering from this place cuz it doesn't seem as unhealthy as some of the other chinese places in the area. The prices are a bit steep for the so-called lunch special but I guess it's worth it if I can walk away feeling like I ate a somewhat healthy chinese lunch (if that's possible).

The food is good and delivery service is not all that great, considering we on the same block and the dinner is frequently delivered 45 mins after we place our order. 20 mins Real Time = 45 minutes Noodles on 28 time. Sad part is that the long delivery time still beats their service. The service is OK when you eat in, however you feel rushed when placing your order over the phone, not to mention the rude tone and manner in which they speak to you. We were loyal for two years and will no longer be eating there.

Compared to competitors, their noodles soups are pricier and only so-so. Not too thrilled about their dumplings either; too doughy. The vegetable dumplings are not recommended.
