Delivery in the South End
House of Siam is a favorite and they are very quick
Pepper Pot - caribbean food, hole in the wall. Order through foodler.com
Upper Crust also delivers to the South End but they take a long time so be prepared
India Samraat - decent but they do have a delivery minimum
Other choice available on www.foodler.com. Just be careful because many of the restaurants listed deliver through Night Owl and charge a $5 delivery fee (or more). We try to pick from those with their own delivery service - delivery charge is much lower.
That is a fantastic link, anitab, thanks! Pepper Pot was completely off my radar: do you have any favorites you can recommend there?
In general, I need to explore Lower Roxbury nabes like Dudley Square more -- they seem to be a largely untapped Chow resource, or at least not discussed much here. I did manage to try Packy Connor's for its wings recently: very impressive.

The curried chicken is a favorite. It is served with a cabbage and carrot "slaw", red beans and rice, and plaintains. The small size is actually quite a large portion (I always have leftovers for the next day). My husband is a fan of the curried goat. The jerk chicken is not the best I have had - it is a little too fatty but the jerk spice is delicious - very peppery with a good kick.
The patties and coco bread are okay - the bread is a little drier than what I have had in the past.
I am going to try the oxtail sometime soon.
Another favorite Jamaican/caribbean is Ali's Roti on Tremont St. Its on the other side of Mass Ave and is open until 7pm.
