Good Indian catering needed for memorial reception (reasonably-priced)

shazam77 Sep 25, 2007 06:41 AM

I'm hosting a reception for my cousin's memorial service. He was in his early 50s, a lovely eccentric guy, who adored Indian food above all else. I want to find a nice, reasonably-priced Indian caterer for his memorial service and reception in my home. We live right around the corner from East 6th Street, though would be open to other places. I can probably russle up some people to help serve if they don't provide servers. Thanks for your help! This is coming up in 2 weeks.

    I am very sorry for your loss. You might take some comfort in the catering provided by Minar's. I often eat at there and my friends have used them to cater banquets for an Indian heritage group at NYU. They are eminently affordable and are probably my favorite Indian restaurant in that price range. They should be more than qualified to meet your needs, though if you're not Indian, they tend to go easy on the chili, if you like some heat.

      Thank you for that recommendation. Where is it located? I find a few with Minar in the title when I google it.

        There's two. I usually go to the one on West 46th, but I believe my friend uses the location on 31st.
