Inexpensive (less than $35/person) set dinner for 30 people
I have been again tasked with finding a location for a work dinner, but I'm having a lot of trouble finding anything within our budget ($35/person before drinks/taxes/grat).
If they can handle "ethnic" try Miga on Bloor for decent Korean food. (Miga is not the best Korean on that strip but is the only place that has room for 30 people all together.) They have great customer service and will work with you in advance to arrange all the details. Clean, modern atmosphere and the section that holds 30 people is semi-private (surrounded by a half-wall). You can have 6 people per table (at 5 tables side by side with gaps in between for getting in and out) and each table has one barbeque to share (or you could choose a set dinner that is pre-cooked to avoid bbqing yourselves).
Or what about Le Paradis? Their menu is cheap and French food appeals to a wide variety of tastes.
Chinese in Scarboro will easily fit the bill.
A Chowhound group meet at Sheppard and Brimley came to $22 each with tip.
I'm not sure if the space is perfect, but the Beaconsfield has a great $25 prix fixe - interesting options for veggies and carnies alike.
