Good delivery options in Greenwich Village?

We have hit a wall and are disappointed with just about all of the food delivery options in our area (around Washington Square).

We are looking for all the basics -

Pizza (we are getting sick of Arturos)
Italian
Chinese
Thai
Mexican
Japanese
Indian

Any help would be much appreciated!!

  1. A couple of years back, I had a friend who lived on Bleecker. On Oscar night, we did not want to go out and wanted to have a nice meal so we called Cafe espanol, on Bleecker street also. The food was absolutely delicious and the portions gigantic. We ordered for 2 and we could have been 3 or 4 easily. We had paella, gaspacho and they were excellent.

    1. re: cricri7

      I'm glad you enjoyed your meal there, but I don't think Cafe EspaƱol is a Chow-worthy restaurant. It presents itself as a Spanish place, but they serve corn tortilla chips and (jarred) salsa when customers sit down. Also, I ordered a glass of cava, and they put a maraschino cherry in it. I'm from Spain; this is not a good Spanish restaurant, and I don't think they know much about quality food service in general (or care -- it caters to NYU students who want to get drunk on sangria). I don't know if Las Ramblas delivers, but it's an unpretentious tapas bar with tasty food in the same neighborhood.

        +1 on this viewpoint on faux Spanish restaurants..
        Also, good suggestion with Las Ramblas..

    2. For pizza, The Pizza Box (ask for fresh mozzarella... comes from a local cheese maker, Joe's)

        I have to say that I was not impressed by the Pizza Box. It was really, really greasy and left us both with a big ol' stomach ache :(

        Any other reccs, please?

      2. When I lived on Christopher the rooms and I rotated frequently through the following:

        Westville
        Grand Sichuan on 7th ave (only decent Chinese I knew of in those parts), Noodle Bar delivered okay "pan-asian" noodle soups.
        I think Arturo's is your best bet for pizza, but Joe's delivers if you're a bigger fan of it than I am.
        Rhong Thai for Thai (heard Galanga is good too)
        Mexican, forget about it.
        For Indian I thougth Ghandi Cafe was "just fine."
        Also, Taim delivers awesome falafel, of course. I would sometimes get Dirty Bird deliverd from up on 14th for some chickeny comfort food. It's on seamless.

        1. re: Mr Porkchop

          Hysterical, we have done all of the above with the same reviews. Rhong Thai was great until it got closed down by the health department - GROSS!

          New revelation: South Brooklyn Pizza delivers here - woohoooo!

          1. re: lavendula

            Chinese - For Americanized fare, Friend House or Yummy House is edible. Not sure if places in Chinatown deliver to Greenwich Village. What kind of Chinese are you looking for in particular?

            Thai - Spice or Rhong Tiam, which has since moved to a new location on 2nd Ave/5th St (the space formerly home to Kurve, the restaurant that's all pink)

            Mexican - Hopefully you live within the delivery zone for La Esquina. If not, Cosmic Cantina might work as well. (Depending on what type of Mexican you like, I'd put Cosmic Cantina way below La Esquina) Mexicana Mama could be another option.

            Japanese - Kanoyama. It's amazing because it's a real Japanese restaurant, not a random delivery hole.

            Italian - Il Corallo Trattoria (they have pizza too)

            For Pan-Asian Noodles - Noodle Bar or Republic

            For Vietnamese - Saigon Grill

            Not an expert on Indian cuisine...

              BTW Kanoyama only goes as far west as 5th Ave according to their site.

              Recently started working in SOHO and am having the same kind of problem with delivery. But of all the above I can't help but comment that Souen, a macrobiotic place, is punishingly bad. It definitely has its adherents, but not amongst people who live to eat...

              1. re: MBovary

                Yes, the service and food at Souen (especially the one in Soho) is terrible (and I'm a vegetarian!).

                My new takeout choice is Hawkers for Pad Thai and other tasty noodle dishes.

            2. i live in the area...im not sure if they deliver, but keste's pizza is insane and i eat there about 1x a week lately...very friendly too.

              chinese? i get grand sichuan from 7th ave south or st.marks...food is fantastic and i dont even like chinese.

              thai...i get delivery from rhong in the kurve space...i miss them on laguardia...the kurve space sucks but the food is still good.

              for delivery, ido on 7th ave south is solid...not amazing but miles better than kawa which was my previous sushi delivery. but i prefer to just go to ushiwakamaru and eat there...sushi isnt meant to be delivered.
