King of Prussia
Friends have just moved to King of Prussia. They are looking for places to have dinner that cost between $10 and $25 per person for the food portion of the meal. They are looking for places in King of Prussia or adjacent towns. No particular kind of food preference but not chains.
I would recommend Wayne and Phoenixville as good places to start. There isn't much in KoP itself that I know of that isn't a chain.
Here's my list of non-chain places, all close to KOP:
Trattoria San Nicola - Italian in Paoli
Mayuree Cafe - Thai French in Devon
Taste of India - Indian in Wayne / Gateway Shopping Center
Theresa's Next Door - Gastropub in Wayne
Kabuki - Japanese in King of Prussia
Lotus Inn - Chinese (and Japanese) in Berwyn, they have the best Kung Pao Chicken anywhere
