Delivery in Chelsea

I moved to Chelsea about 2 months ago and am looking for some solid food delivery. The last place I ordered from was Salsa y Salsa, only because I was craving Mexican food. It was really awful.
What are some of your favorite delivery places? Cuisine doesn't matter...just looking for some really good staples.
Thank you in advance...
There's a good sushi place called Canaan on 29th Street -- they have a lobster salad with avocado that's fabulous, and all their sushi is good.
Yeah, Salsa y Salsa is pretty disappointing. Now that Kitchen Market is gone, Chipotle is probably the best "mexican" in the immediate area. Here are some other places that delivered to me when I lived at 24th and 6th:
Szechuan Gourmet or Grand Sichuan for Chinese
Curry Leaf for Indian
Roomali for roomali rolls
Waldy's for pizza (but skip the lamb with preserved lemons)
RUB for bbq
Negril Chelsea for Jamaican
Tebaya for wings
Great Burrito for tacos (but stay away from the burritos)
NY Burger & Co. for burgers
Lenny's for sandwiches
If you do a search, you'll come up with my post from a couple of weeks ago where Lenny's delivered lunch to me in Chelsea in less than 10 minutes. You can order from them on-line direcly from their website. You also can order decent pizza from Pizza 33 either on Seamlessweb or direcly from their website (I think it's slightly cheaper ordering directly from them). And Sala 19 -- very good Spanish -- also delivers, again either from Seamlessweb or directly from their website. I was surprised how well their paella travels!
Welcome to the nabe! I am psyched to try some of a_and_w's suggestions i didn't know.
It's funny because we don't really dine at these places but they are total staples for delivery:
Chelsea Thai or Spice (Thai)
Elmo (comfort food)
Wai Cafe (cheap eats) -nothing special, but it is a staple
I second Grand Sichuan for Chinese, although what you get delivery-wise can be inconsistent. For Italian, Intermezzo is our favorite. I am not a fan of Le Zie but - who knows - perhaps you will feel differently. For Indian, Surya. And there are 2 Murrays, both excellent.
And while we're on the subject, what is everyone's favorite pizza delivery? Rocco's has gone downhill of late imho.
Don Giovanni's for pizza. wood-burning oven style. amazing.
Spice for thai.
O Mai for Vietnamese (20th and 9th)
and yes, Murray's delivers. AMAZING when you're sick at home.
Taco Bandito on 8th b/t 26/27 has decent Mexican delivery - it's a hole in the wall though. Thai Chai-yo is good.
