Are there tiffinwallas in Cambridge?

In some cities with large Indian communities, there are businessmen who deliver home cooked Indian lunches to offices. Guru the Caterer is the closest I know of around here; does anyone know of any others?
In India, the tiffinwallas actually pick up the home cooked meal (safely arranged in a tiffin, or lidded metal carrier) from the recipient's home kitchen and "just" deliver it, no cooking involved. That's not what I'm looking for...

  1. Guru is no longer doing those office deliveries, BTW. We were regulars of his in our Kendall Square office, but he stopped them sometime last year, in prep, I think, for opening his downtown lunch place.

    I don't know of another similar service, alas, but hope we'll learn of one in this thread.
