Moved to Oakdale/Montville this summer and am disappointed with the lack of good takeout (subs and Chinese mostly).

Sizzling wok has been the best of the worst for Chinese.

2 brothers is ok for some subs or as a restaurant (sit at the bar, otherwise the service isn’t great).

Plum tomato was good but their recent quality has gone downhill for subs. Their pizza is nothing to write home about.

Moravelis was good once and then horrible the second time.

Ninos is ok but a bit far.

Salem Prime Cuts for epic grinders, Brick and Basil in Norwich for woodfired pizza.

We tried golden palace today and it’s the best Chinese we’ve had yet around here. Thank you!

Plum Tomato is way too fucking expensive for how inconsistent their pizza is. Oakdale Pizza is probably the best choice in the area and Salem Prime Cuts has the best grinders anywhere that side of the state.

You’re in the middle of the woods, there aren’t a ton of blow your socks off restaurants out there unfortunately.

Yeah…not looking for amazing, just decent takeout. We know we have to travel at least to mystic for a decent dine in experience it seems.

I make better pizza than plum tomato so we don’t bother looking for pizza as a take out. We got a cheese pizza for the kids once and it was horrible. Their subs are very hit and miss though as well.

I forgot about prime cuts for the grinders. Those things are fucking stacked.

Won’t be open for a few more months (warm weather only establishment) but David’s Place is one of my favorite places to eat in the state. Amazing burgers and all their seafood dishes are reasonably priced is fresh compared to typical takeout/diner type places.

Thanks that’s right by my house. We went there for ice cream but I wasn’t sure about the food

Definitely go there for a burger or clam dish if you like seafood. I don’t know what they do different there but it’s just really great food.

"Love Thai by Thai" on West Thames Street

Asylum Street Pizza on Asylum Street, and La Stella Pizzeria downtown

D'Elia's for grinders. They're a much loved local institution and have been around forever.

"Mommy's Delicious Food" flavorful Haitian (and Jamaican jerk)

Johnny's Clam Shack in Greenville

Millie's Ice Cream at Malerba's (seasonal)

I'm sad to hear The Plum Tomato went downhill. The Groton Plum was a workplace favorite and never disappointed. That was well over 15 years ago, but still sad.

Hamilton Market is good for subs if you want to go to New London.

Look where you are located. That is why.

Thank you so much for your keen observance.

So you moved there for work related reasons only then correct?

Exactly, you knew already.
