Twice in a row we have ordered from the Friend House and they did not deliver our food. They did not even call us to notify us that there was an issue. Will never order from here again.

The food is okay and the price is okay. There are some other tastier and cheaper options I have found. Friend House has never disappointed though. The food is consistently okay, the prices aren't terrible (even if they aren't the best), and delivery time is always reasonable. Not the best option, but definitely a safe bet.

Delivery estimate was 30-45 minutes. Food came over an hour after restaurant confirmed delivery.
Food was cold and ALL of the boxes/trays were opened and spilling into the bag.
Food was mediocre at best. Ate about half of the sushi and half of the coconut shrimp and had a stomach ache for the rest of the night.
Will not order from here again.

I just called these guys to ask about my delivery (it had been about an hour). I got a text message indicating it was 'on the way' a while back and tried to explain this to the host, but she just hung up repeating 'it's on the way bye'. Terrible service. Never order from here again.

The WORST service I've ever experienced. After the food didn't arrive over an hour later, I made a phone call to the restaurant only to be told that the delivery man was on his way. After nearly 2 hours, I called again-- and this time I'm told that the delivery man DROPPED MY FOOD and won't be coming. The woman at the restaurant was unapologetic and says the only thing they can do is give a refund, which has yet to happen. Don't order from here!

Ordered several pints of tom kha soup at 9pm and received a text that the food was out for delivery at 9:30pm; it arrived at 11:15pm! (There was literally only soup in the order! How long does that take to send out?!?!) I was really too tired to eat by then, but I was still super hungry, so I plunged a spoon into one of the still very hot containers (an obvious indicator that it was, in fact, NOT out for delivery over an hour-and-a-half earlier!!!!); ingesting the product was a big mistake. The chicken had that distinctive "something's-off" metallic tang inherent of meat that's been taken straight from the freezer to the microwave. Plus, it had this uniquely slimy texture that somehow managed to suffer a breakdown into mealiness upon chewing. The coconut broth was actually pretty yummy (yet unbelievably oily, but whatever), but with all that questionable chicken floating within it, I had to make an executive decision to throw away the whole bag of soup, in an effort to avoid gastrointestinal regrets later. Ordering from this place was a thoroughly disappointing experience on so many levels. I'm sooo hungry as I type this before bed; looking forward to [a proven safe] breakfast tomorrow!!!

Awful - I'll never be ordering from them again. The green curry was fluorescent - more coconut milk w food coloring, and tasteless. The thai salad was pathetic, literally leaves with sweet chilli sauce on it. Not cheap and I was upset that I'd spent just under 50 bucks on a meal for two that was hard to eat

Like Michael Johnson at the 1996 Atlanta Olympics, Friend House is fast and reliable. Decent pricing, good variety offered, fast delivery. The noodle dishes are good, authenticity of all but the Cantonese menu is definitely questionable, but if you're in the need for a quick fix of heavily salted, MSG-drowned Chinese, look no further. Try the Salt and Pepper Shrimp.

The food at Friendhouse is consistent and good, I order here a lot. But lately, when I've ordered, the Delivery many is VERY angry at me for tipping the suggested Seamlessweb.com amount of 20% which i think is very fair. Its very frustrating to have an angry man yelling at you in another language about a 20% tip. If Friendhouse has a problem with their $10 minimum, it should not be taken out of the customers by an angry delivery guy. I always tip fairly, but it makes me not want to order from here again. Its Super aggressive and kindof scary. I hope they see this and stop this barbaric treatment of customers.

I paid full price for an entree portion for General Tzo's chicken and it was just awful. A soggy flavorless mess... Never again. Didn't even mind that the portion size was small; it all went in the trash (and I've eaten some nasty leftovers when I'm hungry.. nope, threw this out).

NEVER AGAIN!!!! I placed my order at 11:00pm and received my food at 1:05am. It was supposed to take 5-60 minutes. I had finally called seamless to cancel my order at 1:00am and had planned on not accepting my food, but the delivery man didn't understand me so I finally took my order. The food was very gross and cold. I bit into a piece of my chicken and rice dish and bit into a bone (not supposed to be in there!) Plus the breading on the outside was all soggy. The whole meal went in the trash. Do not waste your time or money!

I used to love friendhouse until I walked past the restaurant and saw
a) they have a C rating. You cant even get worse than a C - and btw, I worked in a restaurant that had an A rating and we had mice in the back so just take a guess how dirty a place has to be to get a C...
b) its literally a nasty looking hole in the wall restaurant ...

Were late and forgot my cheesecake. Double check an order that has 3 items. How hard can it be to remember 3 items? To make it worse they wouldn't deliver it when I called even though I payed for it. They claim they're busy. Lies. Never ordering from this place again. DO NOT ORDER FROM THEM!!!!!! ps they're rating are obviously fake because if you actually read comments, most are negative and one star.
Listen to these reviews. If so many people get their order late, be prepared to wait forever.
Dining at the actual place is not that great. The food is mediocre. Really blah.

Ordered b/c Seamless rating was 5 stars; apparently this is meaningless.
The pineapple fried rice literally smelled like the floor of a movie theater. I took one bite and spit it out. My wife somehow ate half and then gave up, worried she would become ill (prior to my taking one bite and spitting it out). The cold sesame noodles appeared to be store-bought green linguine with some kind of bottled peanut sauce squirted on top. The thick slices of nearly over-ripe cucumber were a scant saving grace. The moo-shu chicken, least offensive, seemed like a rough approximation of moo-shu, such as might be made in a junior high home economics class in the early to mid 1980s - which is to say, it didn't seem poisonous, but it was similar to actual moo-shu in superficial appearance only. By the way, the order took about 1/2 longer than the max time it said online that it would take. I think Seamless' review system is somehow flawed if the average is 5 stars; the restaurants must be bribing someone. It is definitely a Seam.

The so-called "Grand Marnier Prawns" turned out to be a congealed mass of breaded plastic strips drowned in a starchy white sauce that tasted more like wood glue than Grand Marnier. When I called to complain, the restaurant insisted that they made a "correct order", and wouldn't do anything about it.

Posted 2 years ago by Reynolds T.
The food was delivered late despite being told it would be there in 10 minutes. Setting false expectations made waiting for the food much worse than if they were honest and told me it would take longer than expected.
The food itself was gross. The hot and sour soup was very oily, almost slimy. I also ordered Eggplant in a Spicy Garlic sauce, which was chewy and mediocre at best.
They kindly refunded my purchase since I was dissatisfied, so at least they corrected their mistake. I would not order again despite ending up having an OK customer experience because I couldn't eat the food.

WORST food I have eaten in my entire lifetime on this planet. Threw most of it away. Unbelievable that this has any good reviews. Just throw away the money you would have spent and save yourself the time, calories, and horror of their food.

WORST. SERVICE. EVER. They took 40 minutes to get here and I specifically selected them because it indicates they would be here between 10-15 minutes. The got my order WRONG. They did apologize, which was nice, but then took 50 minutes to get the right order to me. I called them at the 30 minute mark to say I had to leave and would appreciate a refund, rather than the order. She told me that was impossible and that all they could do is leave the new order at my doorstep? Totally unaccommodating and kept me waiting far too long. When I called to cancel the second order at the 30 minute mark, I was told to wait 2 minutes. I called back 10 minutes later to say I had to leave immediately and was told there is nothing they could do. I would be charged. No food received. And they were less than willing to account for their mistake. NEVER. AGAIN.

Hmm how can it be 5 stars with all of these poor reviews. Something's very fishy...

Order confirmation received in my email at 12:39 PM. Food arrived at 2:20.

My chicken was completely dried out. The pineapple fried rice was flavorless. All in all, this place isn't that good.
Posted 2 years ago by Andy W.
Wasn't bad, but definitely not great. The chicken with broccoli sauce had a distinct taste to it that I didn't love. Also, it comes with mushrooms and carrots which was weird. Reviews about the disgruntled delivery man were spot on, but those about orders taking too long to be delivered were incorrect. My food arrived piping hot within 35 minutes - even on a rainy day.

The curry and lunch items were a good deal for the price, but the food showed up 30 minutes late. An entire entree was missing. Our white tuna sashimi was spoiled. When I called to try and fix the order they never picked up the phone. It rang 30+ times over 3 different calls. Order was fixed once I called Seamless customer service.

Always reliably good. I order from here frequently; it's my neighborhood secret.
Posted 2 years ago by Michael T.
The lunch special was great, but they decided to no longer allow people to order and pick up, delivery only. Since that adds a $2 tip to the order, I will no longer be ordering from them.
Posted 2 years ago by Robin J.
Took 2 hours to delivery and then they brought us the wrong food. Their phone was off the hook and we could not get through to have them send new food. Apparently the actual restaurant closed and they are sending delivery orders from a new, undisclosed location (sounds kinda gross to me). Ended up settling with Seamless for a refund.

Terrible delivery. Takes over an hour even when they promise 15 minutes.

Food is good, but the delivery man rang the doorbell obnoxiously and shouted at me about the tip I gave him (I tipped between 20 and 25%--unsure what he would have wanted instead). I called about this, and the woman on the phone assured me that she would speak to the manager. I like the food and the price, but I probably won't order from here again because of the poor service.

Food took over an hour to deliver. If it's going to take that long as least warn people and i'll go somewhere else.

I do not recommend this place. It took more than one hour even though I live few blocks away. Just pick another Chinese restaurant!

I have not been so disappointed and unsatisfied with a meal in a long time. I think it began when the 30-45 min delivery time was eclipsed and it finally showed up an hour and 20 minutes later. The girl on the phone said they were slammed. I get it. It happens. A call would have been nice, but now I'm starving.
Well the food was not fresh, not hot and the chicken had no sauce on it. Maybe it did when it left the restaurant, but it didn't when I got it. The dumplings were fine, nothing special, but the General Tso's chicken was a major disappointment. Order at your own risk.

gen tso's chicken and wonton soup tasted not what I expected.
Posted 2 years ago by Eunji C.
I ordered the sesame bean curd, edamame, and crystal shrimp dumplings. The bean curd was deliciously prepared, with large firm blocks of tofu seasoned with just the right amount of sauce and green broccoli. The edamame was also good -- some places oversalt, others undersalt, but this was just right, with large, firm beans. I gobbled them up. The crystal shrimp dumpling isn't something I've ever ordered before, so I didn't know what I was getting. It's a transparent white dough dumpling with a shrimp inside. Not really my personal tastes, but folks seem to like them. I just ate the shrimp out of the dough.
After having has such a bad experience with the bean curd dishes elsewhere, I was relieved by Friend House's cooking.
Not impressed at all. Our food was very disappointing. Won't go back.

pepper steak with onions......meat was chewy and tasted terrible. the meal ended up in the garbage can

Incredibly slow. They said 30-45 minutes and took twice that long and kept lying about the time.

some of the worst chicken and broccoli I have ever had. tasted like they cooked it 4 days before and heated it up to send to me. YUCK

Amazing food, dumplings are amazing and huge! Everything was perfect!

SO FAST! only 15 minutes with food arriving warm. yummm. i'll definitely order again from here again.
Posted 3 years ago by Cara W.
Delivered in less than 20 minutes after ordering, and filet mignon cubes were outstanding. Great flavor, cooked perfect. Dumplings juicy and substantial. Ordering again tonight.

Delivery takes much longer than listed and the receptionist states that they don't fill seamless orders as they come in, but wait.
Posted 3 years ago by Andrea K.
Save yourself a headache and DO NOT order from this place. I cant believe it has good reviews. It must be from its own employees. Worst experience possible.
Posted 3 years ago by Cristina A.
The food took over 45 minutes when the delivery time was 15-30. The sushi was ok, but the miso was disappointingly not vegetarian.
Posted 3 years ago by Radhika L.
The food from this place is fine, but I have tried them twice because of all the great reviews and both times they have been late and then tried to deliver to the wrong address, both times this has resulted in multiple phone calls and then cold food when it finally does arrive. I'm a Seamless Web regular and have not had this issue with any other restaurant.
Posted 3 years ago by Victoria B.
decent for a neighborhood multi-asian fare. but as with any restaurant that tries to offer too much variety, they are jacks of all trades but masters of none. still, for the price and convenience of location if you're in the neighborhood, it's okay.
Posted 3 years ago by JIM W.
The estimate for the order was 15-30 minutes - it is now been an hour and half since I ordered. When I called after an hour they assured me its on the way - but it's still not here. If the food isn't totally amazing and warm - I'll never order from here again.
Posted 3 years ago by Jeni M.
Consistently good food and super quick delivery. The spinach dumplings and sushi rolls are awesome. Chinese is basic and the sashimi is fine but I'd still pick a true sushi joint for that.

Posted 3 years ago by Anne Marie B.
Terrible. Skimpy portions for way too much money that don't taste good. We got shrimp tempura that was cold and not battered with tempura, essentially hard fried shrimp. Oh yeah, they cut the shrimp into little bites so you can't they're shortchanging you. Crispy beef was not crispy. salmon teriyaki came with congealed teriyaki sauce on the side. Will not go back, cannot understand how they had 5 stars.

Food was TERRIBLE. I don't know how this place has a five star rating
Posted 3 years ago by Mike Z.
The quality of the food was average but I was very disappointed by the service from Friend House. I had just moved to the neighborhood and live around the corner from the resturant. It was over an hour and 1/2 before the food was delivered even though I had been given a window of 30-45 minutes. In that time period I called twice (after 50 minutes and then a 1/2 hour later) and was assured that the food was out for delivery. The second time I called, they first told me they didn't have my order, then it was out for delivery before finally saying it had yet to be made. I was also charged full price when it finally arrived 20 minutes later - if I was not delirious from hunger at that point I would have contested. I will not be ordering from here again.
Posted 3 years ago by Elizabeth P.
time estimate was 15-30...came almost an hour late and the food was soggy and unappetizing...

Quick and efficient. I always order sushi here
Posted 3 years ago by Ari R.
Ordered my vegetables steamed (dietary restrictions) and they were sauteed heavily in oil. I called to check and ask for steamed ones and they swore that the vegetables were steamed. I'm looking at a pool of oil in the bottom of the container. Sushi was not very fresh also.

They tend to lose seamless web orders.

The food was actually delicious, as it usually is. However, (and I hope you're reading this, owner/manager), the delivery person was awful. No - he was wretched. He either doesn't know how phone/telecom systems work, or he is willfully stupid. If it's the former, you (owner) need to educate him. If it's the latter, then you (owner) need to fire him. After calls from him through my intercom and calls from his/your cell, he couldn't get in. I tested the system myself, and had successfully received an order from the store not 20 minutes before he arrived, so I am inclined to believe he didn't want to climb the stairs. He was either lazy or incapable. if it's the latter, then you (owner) need to decide if he's uneducated or stupid, and cull as necessary.
I intend to order your food again, because it's delicious, but if I have that experience again, I'll stop.

food is of low quality and not fresh.
a simple meal like stir fried broccoli should be cake to prepare, but this place managed to screw it up. also, the lady who picks up the phone when you complain doesn't want to hear it so she hangs up on you.
Posted 4 years ago by Henry B.
Very poor quality. Gloppy sauces, unrefined flavors. Had to call and ask for a refund, which thankfully was granted.

Highly recommend the Shrimp Shumai, best in the city. Also, the least greasy Chinese food I've had by delivery in the city. Very good go-to Chinese delivery.

didnt like the soup, but chicken was decent
Posted 5 years ago by Yasir S.
Really good food but your food can be wrong even when ordering online. For example, they constantly send ginger ale instead of seltzer water and make the sushi with seaweed on the outside instead of inside out like i ordered. So, maybe they're a little careless.
Posted 5 years ago by Serdar G.
Pretty good Chinese. Fresh vegetables. The wanton soup is on another level. Fast delivery. Never had the Japanese stuff.

Posted 5 years ago by Michelle q.
I'm not a fan of this place. Both dishes I ordered were bland and tasteless. To add to the issues, this place is not cheap. Pricey, tasteless, and slow? Not a good combination in my opinion. Definitely better options for Chinese food in the city.
Posted 6 years ago by Warren W.
The food came quickly, but who knew so much could go so wrong? Raw braised beef is an oxymoron and this stock was so fatty I can hardly call it meat; bones in my sashimi; and then a piece of bell pepper so tough I hurt my tooth. Gross!

I took one bite of everything I ordered and threw it out. This place is awful.
