Mango prawns at One Waan Thai in San Francisco.
While indoor dining has returned for most Bay Area restaurants, there are still many people who utilize third-party food delivery services such as DoorDash, Grubhub and Uber Eats to enjoy their favorite restaurants at home. In June, DoorDash revealed its U.S. 100 Most Loved All Stars 2022 list, and two San Francisco restaurants made the cut, as well as other eateries in Oakland, San Rafael, Palo Alto and more. The annual ranking highlights not only top-rated restaurants that use the DoorDash platform, but favored spots that deliver when it comes to quality, efficiency and reliability. 
“The Most Loved All Star list is even more impressive — fewer than 1% of restaurants on the platform qualify,” according to DoorDash

DoorDash considers customer rankings from April 2021 to April 2022 to create its final list of popular restaurants, and all must achieve a “Most Loved status” for at least 10 months to even be considered for the final honor. In addition, merchants with five stores or less that received Most Loved status for 12 consecutive months were ranked by their average overall customer rating “with the top 100 being named to the U.S. list.”

This family-owned business was established in 2017, and sources ingredients from surrounding area farmers markets when possible. Popular dishes include the cherry blossom mango sticky rice, pad thai and mango prawns. 
Sarn Jin Bao at Shanghai Dumpling in San Francisco. 
Shanghai Dumpling King
696 Monterey Blvd.
San Francisco
Crunchy lollipop chicken drummies, pan-fried dumplings, steamed xiao long bao and the dumpling varieties are seemingly endless at Shanghai Dumpling King on Monterey Boulevard. “There are very few restaurants I would drive out of the city for but this is definitely one,” said Gabby E. on Yelp. “A friend showed us this place and we had a large group so we ordered about 18 dishes. You honestly can’t go wrong, everything was amazing.”
129 Lytton Ave.
Palo Alto
An equal blend of vegetarian and meat-studded dishes grace the menu at Palto Alto’s Darbar, which explores northern and southern Indian cuisine. Customers rate the lamb or vegetable biriani as top favorites, served with daal and raita. Darbar first opened in 1995 and has been dishing out Indian comforts for nearly 30 years.

Little Original Joe’s
393 W. Portal Ave.
San Francisco
Pizza, pasta, sandwiches and rotisserie make a straightforward menu at Little Original Joe’s in San Francisco. “The chicken parm sub, made on a local Acme ciabatta roll, here is hefty enough for two meals,” wrote Amy C. on Yelp. “And considering that the sandwich itself is $12.50, which is certainly something that you won’t overlook within the city limits these days, that’s quite a deal.” 
Saag paneer from Lotus Cuisine of India in San Rafael.
Lotus Cuisine of India
812 Fourth St.
San Rafael
Lotus Cuisine of India is one of many restaurants run by Surinder Sroa and his family. Surinder, along with his wife Linda Sroa and their son, Jyoti, first opened this beloved eatery in 1998. If you’re wondering what dish to try first at this family-run establishment, look no further than Jyoti’s favorite dish: the Paneer Tikka Masala.
Shana Thai
311A Moffett Blvd.
Mountain View
Putting the same care into the very dishes they would serve their own families, the owners of Shana Thai have managed to build a reputation for quality and freshness through the years. Popular menu items include the Tom Kha soup, Thai basil chicken stir fry and the chicken skewers. 
Shandong Restaurant
328 10th St.
It’s been said that San Franciscans will drive to Oakland for a taste of Shandong Restaurant’s handmade dumplings. So it’s no surprise to see it grace this list. Besides dumplings, I personally enjoy the Lotus Chicken, which is chopped chicken, chilies, bell peppers, onions and garlic served with a huge wedge of iceberg lettuce to make wraps. 
The Bogie at Stuft Pizza is a meat-lovers dream with pepperoni, salami, ground beef, sausage and ham. 
Stuft Pizza
1426 Dempsey Road
Serving Milpitas since 1976, Stuft Pizza was founded by Jack Bertram, who went on to perfect his recipe for the Italian pie throughout its 40-plus years in business. Notable pizzas on the menu include the Meatball Pie baked with golf ball-sized spheres, and its Bogie, which is a meat-lovers dream with its combination of ham, pepperoni, sausage, salami and ground beef. 
Taiwan Porridge Kingdom
20956 Homestead Road Suite 1A
House special chicken, steamed halibut with soy and Napa cabbage with mushrooms and dried shrimp are just some customer favorites over at Taiwan Porridge Kingdom in Cupertino. It’s a restaurant known for its generous portions, too, so you can have plenty of leftovers to last a couple of days to brighten up those sad desk lunches. 
2980 E. Capitol Expy Suite 50
San Jose
There are endless flavor combinations at Tisane when it comes to delicious tea-based drinks. The Kiwi to My Heart with heart-shaped strawberry jellies and green oolong tea, as well as the Two to Mango with oolong tea, mango jellies and a smooth mango puree are both customer faves. 
The Chicken Katsu plate at Yummy Hawaiian BBQ in Pittsburg.
Yummy Hawaiian BBQ (160 Atlantic Ave)
160 Atlantic Ave.
Crispy Chicken Katsu, Spam masubi, creamy macaroni salad and more are served up in hefty portions to go at Ymmy Hawaiian BBQ in Pittsburg. “The portions are incomparably huge for $12. Two heaping scoops of rice. A scoop of mac salad. So, so much chicken/beef/shrimp/fish for one plate,” wrote Michael H. on Yelp. “And my photos don’t do the portions justice.”
Yummy House
2300 Sand Creek Road Suite G1
BrentwoodAnother Hawaiian restaurant rounding our the DoorDash list is Yummy House in Brentwood with its sticky short ribs and barbecued beef combos, salmon and ahi tuna poke bowls, and the hearty portions seem to be a standard. “The food is never cold or skimpy, ordering on door dash always makes me nervous because sometimes food spots are really skimpy with their portions, but not this place,” MaryAnne A. wrote on Yelp. “I’ve had the edamame, wings, teriyaki salmon rice bowl and the rangoon. The veggies in the rice bowl were actually very good!”
