Take-out for 30 in Waltham or Newton?
We're planning an informal dinner for about 30 people -- research fellows and faculty members. The tradition is that the host picks up take-out from a restaurant that can cater to this large a group, and it's served buffet-style at the home of the hosts. What would be a good restaurant for ordering this amount of food in Waltham, Newton, or other place within a 20-minute drive of Weston?
Reliability is key. (The group had Blue Ribbon BBQ at our last dinner, and an Indian meal before that, so other types of food would be better. We've been thinking of Thai and are open to other suggestions.) Thanks for your advice!

domenic's might do that (italian menu, very good sandwiches) - possibly Elephant walk? possibly solea (spanish tapas)
Barry's Village Deli has nice platters if you want to go that route. They are in Newton.

Comella's (family-style italian takeout) in West Newton is usually a crowd-pleaser, though not very sophisticated. They could certainly handle the quantity without any problem.
