Looking for Asian restaurant that can seat 11

kdgchow May 13, 2008 03:54 PM

Coming up from NYC to celebrate my brother's college graduation this weekend. We want to hold a celebratory dinner Saturday night at a restaurant in the GBA. We're thinking Asian - preferably Chinese, but it doesn't have to be. But it needs to be able to accommodate a party of 11 and must have significant vegetarian options.

I was thinking about Taiwan Cafe, but I'm just not sure it's big enough. Any suggestions?

    I know TC has at least 1 large table in the window that can probably accomodate 11. You might want to reserve it.

    Also Peach Farm Seafood or East Ocean City (seafodod focus) should be able to accomodate you.

    Those are 3 of my Chinatown favorites with large tables and lots of veggie options,

      East Ocean City is a good recommendation for large, diverse groups. We have had Lunar New Year's dinners there, led by a native speaker with impeccable taste. She wrangled up great meals, pleasing all of the palates present.

      Out of Asia on Route 1N in Saugus (about a 10 minute drive from the Zakim Bridge. It is across from the orange dinosaur miniature golf place and is set back from the highway and right before the Hess gas station. Has wonderful Asian food that has plenty of veggies and is non-greasy. Call first to see if they can accomodate but I am certain they can.

        Eastern Pier, on the waterfront near South Station. Has outside tables if the weather is good and can accommodate 11. Excellent fish, particularly the steamed ginger bass

          Chef Chang's House on Beacon Street in Brookline has a number of large tables. Great for big groups. The Peking Duck carved tableside by the chef is great for large parties.

            Eastern Pier on Northern Ave would fit the bill. Their food ranges from Americanized Chinese to the real deal. They have a nice waterfront view and seating for large groups.

              FuLoon in Malden has a nice banquet room that could definitely accommodate you all.

              375 Main St, Malden, MA 02148

                I'm going to second sushidad's suggestion with Chef Chang. No problem hosting a party of 11, right across from the Green Line St. Mary's stop and also has street / meter parking. And I've never been disappointed with what they've served.
