    Blimey, did you just order a portion of rice or something? Maybe a bag of prawn crackers? :D

    Can't beat those times at all. Chinese is normally far quicker than Indian, but 30 minutes is usually a good time.

    I don't use delivery service, but every time I phone an order into my local Chinese and ask how long it will be, regardless of the size, they always say 10 mins.

    Slowest is a fantastic Thai takeway 35 minutes drive from me. Phone in at 5pm on a Saturday and it'll be ready by 7.30pm!!

    Full as a butcher's pup, ordered 7:12, delivered 7:24, the shop is a 3-4 min drive away. It was a £35 order, 3 main meals and a few side orders not just an order of rice and crackers ;) They're usually quite fast, within 30 mins but this is a first :)

    Dominos took 20 minutes to do a quality control check according to the website. They must have looked good and hard :rotfl:

    Our local Chinese, despite knowing we are two roads away, always tell us it will be about 45 minutes to an hour, but then we usually get it in about 20 minutes, even when its busy. Under Promise, Over Deliver.

    I once waited an hour for a Kebab. I think they forgot though and only remembered when I phoned them to ask where it was!

    I got an Indian in around 10-12 minutes years ago. It gave me food poisoning.

    If we are really hungry we opt for Chinese as it is always 25 mins or less...always tastes fresh and not like it's been sitting in pots just waiting....

    I had a Chinese Meal in Germany during my recent trip there, for some reason it was bizarre having a china man speak german.

    The Indian nearby was shut due to a refurb.
