Lunch Delivery in West Los Angeles

Does anyone have any good recs for places that deliver in West LA? (By West LA I mean west of the 405, North of the 10, and east of Santa Monica) My co-workers and I normally go out for lunch on Fridays but the weather is so miserable today. (Sadly, at 10am in the morning, I am already thinking about lunch!) Our old delivery standbys are Lucia's Pizza on Westwood and Asakuma. Any cuisine will do- I haven't had much luck with some of the Thai delivery places and would love to find a great one. Thanks!!!
Classic Pizza on Pico Blvd. (and their sister restaurant, Ciccero's is good too - which is located in that little triangle of land just NE of where Barrington crosses Pico Blvd. behind the 76 Station that charges some totally whack prices for their gas and across the street from the "Gentleman's club: Plan B) in Santa Monica has very good sandwiches and most of their salads are excellent too. If you want to order on a rainy Friday then do it very, very early (like when they open).
I think (?) you can get delivery from and are, might be, close enough to your requested area:
Sushi Masu - Japanese - Westwood Blvd. - (310) 446-4368
Pastina - Italian - Westwood Blvd. - (310) 441-4655
Nizam - Indian - Pico Blvd. - (310) 470-1441
Lemon Moon - American (?) - Pico Blvd. (could be pick-up only ?) - (310) 442-9114
Emporium Thai - Thai - Westwood Blvd.
unfortunately it's got nothing to do with luck...there's no such thing as "great" thai on the westside.
Thai Boom does deliver, but they are located on Venice east of Sepulveda. I'm quite confident that the OP's location, which appears to be somewhere around Wilshire and Santa Monica Blvd, and Barrington to Bundy, would be too far. So would Hu's for Chinese delivery.
Siam Chan is very inexpensive, delivery is free and reasonably quick, and they package the food well, using cut out containers to keep crispy items from getting soggy. Avoid the weird pad thai and the bony, gristley BBQ items, and order the mee krob, yellow or red curries, the stuffed wings, or the spicy wide noodles. California Wok has some decent lunch specials. And I definitely agree with El Super Taco -- their carne asada can be very inconsistent, so I'd go with the carnitas or al pastor. I like their tacos (served with grilled onions) and burritos, but most of the regulars seem to be ordering and eating their tortas. Whichever, be sure to get them to pack some of their great habanero salsa along with their salsa roja.
I love Bossa Nova on Pico near the westside pavillion and they have a long delivery range. They're a bit careless with forgetting things though, so check your order.
California Sushi Roll on Santa Monica near Barrington delivers I believe, if you're up for some fat goopy sushi rolls. People either love or hate this place because it's extremely non-traditional. Better to think of it as rice/fish/sauce creations than sushi. I happen to really like it.
I agree with Classic Pizza on Pico and 26th - it looks like the typical hole in the wall, but it has good pizza, good pasta, and very creative, high end salads.
Also Bergamot Cafe will deliver to your area - that's what we use for our business meeting lunches - they even will write your name on each order so you know who has what.
