Best delivery around Davis Sq?

I am looking for some form of good delivery around Davis Sq. I am not really picky, I like everything from Indian to pizza, but I am on a limited budget!
Your best bet is to use foodler.com - the website is excellent and lets you order online from any restaurants that deliver *to your specific address* and they act as the middle-man. There's no markup with this service like there is with diningin.com.
Anyway, regarding Davis Sq, my favorite delivery options would be:
BBQ - Redbones (they deliver on a bicycle!)
Indian - I prefer Indian Club in Porter Sq but I think I recently heard that they closed.
Chinese / Thai - Thai and Mandarin Kitchen on Mass Ave
Thai / Japanese - Spice and Rice
Pizza - Theo's in Teele Sq, or for Sicilian style, Marco's on Mass Ave.
That was me. Now they (twins) are 3 months old and at dinner time I can really only eat things with one hand: sandwiches, burritos, etc. Checked out Mr Crepe for the 1st time since their reopening -- tasty and fresh ingredients but a little pricey for what it is... I do a fair amount of delivery from Wang's and Pini's for pizza. Does anyone know if City Slickers will deliver to Medford Hillside. I was psyched to find Rich again and enjoyed my old favorite grilled chicken pasta last week. Now I have that shrimp & bacon pizza on my mind!
Already contributed to the other thread, but here's a quick update:
India Palace - solid Indian that actually delivers (Namaskar will not)
East Asia - veggie-heavy Americanized thai and chinese. Has fallen out of favor with me now that they no longer offer their Thai Sticks
Davis Square Pizza - snuck some of a friend's order Saturday afternoon - good Greek-style pizza with crazy amounts of toppings
Sei Bar - don't love their sushi and think it's pretty expensive for what you get. Also, not so big on ordering in sushi for some reason.
Szechuan Bay - new comer to the area offering solid szechuan choices
Our standards, some of which have already been mentioned:
Indian - We often pick-up at Namaskar, who don't deliver, but Kebab Factory will deliver to Davis Square and they're mighty tasty.
Chinese - Qindao Garden or East Asia
Pizza - The ghost of Urban Gourmet (a moment of silence please) lives on at City Slickers, and they deliver to Davis. This is probably your cheapest option
