What typical restaurants, food delivery services, and/or takeout options are popular among expatriates?

There are several nice restaurants, considering this is a really small town. Indian, Indonesian, Chinese, and Thai food are all popular. Choices range from a quick $4 bite to eat to a $50 three course meal with wine. Some places deliver, like pizza, but wait times can be long, so I prefer to order ahead and pick up on the way home. - Feb 2020

There is a wide variety in restaurant options - food wise and price wise. Some restaurants are not worth the price. There are McDonalds, Burger King, KFC, Popeye's, and Pizza Hut. Pizza Hut will deliver. Some take-away restaurants will hang up if you speak English to them. - Jun 2017

Popeyes, Pizza Hut, KFC, McDonalds, and Burger King. There are some good restaurants and a variety of cuisine- service is all over the place. - May 2016

U.S. chains include Subway, McD's, Burger King, Popeyes, and Smoothie King for usual prices. A few good local fast-food for similar prices. I highly recommend the Leckie burger from Leckie's. Strangely flavored patty with egg, cucumber, lots of mayo and kethup and it tastes way better than I just described it. Also Nas Kip has an amazing 1/2 fried chicken served over greasy fries that is slightly spicy and really great. A few local curry places are good. There seems to be about 1 of each of every kind of food you can imagine, and they're all pretty decent, usually in the US$10 range for lunch and US$20-30 range for dinner. Nicer places can be US$50 pretty easily and surprisingly. - Dec 2014

There are McDonalds, Burger King, and Subway restaurants. Their cost is more than in the US, but not as bad as some places. You can also get delicious local food at several places, but it gets kind of same-y after a while. It's really good, but just not much variety. There are a few nicer restaurants with different types of food, but they are more expensive. - Jul 2014

Foreign: McDonald's, Subway, Pizza places; all at regular prices or a bit more. Great local places too. Definitely don't just go to the fast food places. So much variety and great food. Lots of Indonesian-type cuisine. - Sep 2013

There are several fast food places. There are cheap local places with great Indonesian and Chinese, as well as Maroon foods. And there are high end restaurants catering to expats. - Nov 2010

McDonald's, Burger King (although they often run out of burgers), KFC, Pizza Hut, Popeye’s and several good local roti shops. Prices are the same or cheaper than in the states. - Feb 2010
