ISO lunch ideas in/near West Roxbury
I am hosting a lunch in late June for between 20 and 30 people (maybe more). I am looking for a restaurant in or near West Roxbury.
I remember going to Mandarin Gourmet in Putterham Circle 9 or 10 years ago and enjoying it, but I have not been to the area in years and could use some suggestions.

You might add Himalayan Bistro and Phuket to the mix. Both are rather small, and 30 people might be taxing their normal capacity, but given sufficient advance notice they could probably accommodate you.
I know some CHs find Phuket's food to be kind of meh, probably because the flavors are watered down for American palates, but the chef (a young woman with an inspiring story) is very happy to ratchet up the spicing on request.
I've been to West 3-4 times, but I've never really had very good food there. I would recommend calling Masona Grill. They aren't typically open for lunch, but they very flexible and open up for a lot of private parties. You'd have the whole place to yourself, the food is outstanding, and the owner/chef would give you a very good price. They really go out of their way to make great food in a comfortable environment, and have a loyal following of very satisfied customers.
