recommendation for chinatown delivery - lunch

Hi all, I have my favorites when I'm eating on my own at a Chinatown restaurant, but I'd like your thoughts on a place to get lunch delivery. It's for a work lunch, so a mix of eaters (adventurous, plain, etc) will be present. I want to really wow everyone, so I need somewhere that doesn't just specialize in one or a few things. I narrowed it by menupages chinatown that deliver (link below) - let me know which one you would choose to deliver our lunch! thanks.

  1. I've had good experiences with 456, Noodle Village, and Congee. Accord Asian is eh, as is Lily's, and my last two deliveries from Buddha Bodhai were lousy (I used to like that place a lot). Note that some of the places on that list aren't Chinese restaurants at all, like Multi Tastes Diner, which is, as its name suggests, a diner.

      I'd be careful here as Chinese restaurants so notorious for having sprawling menus with a good number of items that they don't do particularly well, or trying to fill too many niches at once.

      I would look up Lau's posts for guidance on what to order for specific restaurants.
