Orange Door offers Cantonese and Schezuan cuisine for take out and delivery.
But with out the msg and heavy salt their food would taste like cheap Chinese food.
I gave up on the organge door because when ever I ordered it with out msg and salt...they added both. I know because I watch them cook it. And each time the cook reaches for the three cans of white products next to his wok.
One salt one sugar, and one msg. And each time.e eing the nice canadian, I except their lie about "this one not yours." I guess the last straw was she. I watched the driver walking into the kitchen, it Washing his hands and start chopping cutting, anfilling baskets for the cook, and using his jacketed-elbow to push stacks of u cooked food down I to containers for the cook. YUCK.
I have really enjoyed the food that the Orange door serves for years and it keeps me coming for more. When I picked up my food it is hot and the ingredients are fresh. The food is neither over spiced or over sweetened and the everything was cooked just right.
Being a take-out the only real service you get is food prep and payment. The prep is fine and the plastic containers that the food comes in is much better than the paper/foil type that most other Chinese food take-outs use. I like to arrive at the take-out a few minutes earlier than the pick up appointment so the food is right off the wok.
The Value is comparable to most places, I have always thought Chinese take-out was on the slightly high side.
Ambiance, well it is just a take-out set up so they are definitely more concerned with function than decor. I do like to watch the cooks do there thing while I am at the counter.
I would recommend :)

Every thing is super fresh, and super tasty. I have had Chinese food from many many places and this one is by far the best I've had.
I had friends over one night .. we were hungry after a long hike and I ordered from Orange Door at 7pm and it was at my door by 7:20 I"m not kidding. They are consistently that fast EVERYTIME.
If I had the money I would invest in this place!
WILL NEVER EVER ORDER CHINESE FROM ANY OTHER PLACE ON THE NORTH SHORE.
