Looking for a good, sort of cheap restaurant for a friends birthday get together in Westchester(White Plains)

I'm looking for a decent restaurant to hot a friends birthday get together of about 7 people. Heres what I have in mind: Somewhere affordable (college student affordable), maybe family style (like Chinese, thai, indian, pizza etc), and most importantly somewhere that doesn't mind if we are a bit loud. Any ideas?
Much appreciated!

  1. La Manda on Rt 119 in White Plains. Not fancy but great red sauce style Italian and very good pizza as well. Pretty reasonably priced with large portions. I'm pretty sure it's cash only.

    251 Tarrytown Rd, White Plains, NY 10607

    1. a slight trip is pepes pizza in yonkers

          1) Shiraz, the Persian restaurant on Rte. 119 in Elmsford, you can certainly eat family style there
          2) Turkish Meze in Mamaroneck, which I like even better than Shiraz
          3) Augie's (Italian) on Boston Post Rd in Larchmont. On Sundays they have a special, pasta, meatballs, sausage, garlic bread, salad for one price ($25 for 2? something like that). The bowl of pasta is huge!
          4) Dim sum at Aberdeen in White Plains.

        2. The Cookery in Dobbs Ferry has many small plates that could be served family style - very good food and prices are not exhorbitant. They don't take reservations for less than 5 and I would strongly recommend them. The noise level in general is a bit loud, so your table wouldn't stand out.

            I've had, and seen, parties at Bao's in White Plains. They are very easy to work with , and the food is good and well priced.

          2. Spiga has good food, served family style, a fun atmosphere that will tolerate your noise, and if you stay away from the veal and seafood dishes should be in your budget range.
