BYO's in the Western Burbs?

I'm in dire need of BYO's that are in the KOP/Conshy/Manayunk/Paoli areas.. I've got a couple places in mind like Chiangmai and Taste of India, but that's it.. I'm open to any type of cuisine, as long as it's affordable (max of $25 an entree)...

  1. Aman's Indian in Norristown has been very good lately.

    1. I think the best BYO in Manayunk is Chabba, which is Thai.
      In nearby East Falls, there is also an interesting looking BYO called Fiorino. Haven't been yet, but am dying to try it. Another restaurant that would fit into that category would be Pescatore in Bala Cynwyd. I can't say for sure on pricing there, as the menu doesn't list prices. But looks like great fresh fish.

      Good luck!

        I second Pescatore. We have been there several times and never disappointed. Prices are moderate.

          I think Zacharias is closed. I would add Mina Cucina in Springhouse.

          1. re: JanR

            Zacharias Creekside Cafe is open again. They closed for 3 weeks due to water damage from a sprinkler.

            Black Lab Bistro

            Spring Mill Cafe (French)
            Trattoria Totarro (Italian)

        2. Fayette Street Grill in Conshy. 3 courses $35.

          1. We have enjoyed Bunha Faun in Malvern. Decor isn't much but the food is good.

                Another thought...Mayuree in's Thai and delicious. You just have to go at a time when you aren't in a rush as service is usually very slow. We often go for lunch and even if we are the only people there, it takes awhile. But we keep going back because it's good.
