It's called Room Service (www.roomservice.co.uk). They've existed for
a few years now and for at least a year have been on the Web. They
charge 4 pounds per restaurant to pick up and deliver, in addition to
the meal costs. They will also pick up "just about anything else" on
the way, for 1.50 plus cost of item.

The Web site is hardly amazon.com, but I've used them before and it
works (even if the food was a bit soggy - some of the restaurants they
partner with don't really design their food for takeaway). Only
available in London at present.
