We ordered delivery to our hotel we stayed at. First off it took 45mins to an hour to be delivered. That should have been my first sign. When the food arrived it smelled like old cigarette smoke. I took one bite and almost threw up....More

I did not like the food and it smelled horrible the moment I put it in my car. I couldn't even finish the first bite. The chicken wings look like little drummettes. You could tell they were refried. I read reviews before trying them and...More

Very quaint spot that you could easily miss driving by. They have the best Sesame Chicken in town! A lot of food for the money! Not your typical staff but they get the job done and are very friendly / helpful

If you decide on the delivery, there is a minimum purchase required. I think it's 20, but I am not sure. I highly recommend the General Tso's Chicken. Dine in/carry out/delivery. Conveniently located to downtown Columbia, The Avenues, and local businesses.

I've ordered three times from Tea Pot in the last month, and all three experiences have been bad. Incorrect food items, horrible food prep, etc. My last order included a beef and chicken dish where the beef was so tough it was inedible and a...More

For chicken noodle soup and chicken lo me in, not much chicken to be found. I wouldn't say it was disgusting like another reviewer, but it was disappointing. Wouldn't get take out here again. Maybe Courtyard Marriott should stop recommending.
