Non-touristy near Prince Arthur

Hi CH'ers,

My team at work will be heading to Ye Olde Orchard Pub on Prince Arthur (near St Laurent) for trivia night next week, and we're looking for somewhere to eat beforehand. Ideally walking distance, not too pricy, open to all cuisines, and able to accommodate a group of about 15. All my searches give me terrible tourist traps. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

  1. The Vietnamese place right next door to the Orchard, Au 14 Prince-Arthur Ouest, is not touristy. It's been around 15-20 years, and can handle your group. You may wanna push some tables together so you aren't scattered across four tops.

      1. BIg in Japan (St. Laurent @ Pine) is decent and they could seat you in two booths in the back.

          Last time we were at BIJ over lunch it took 1.5 hours in-and-out the door. Unbelievably slow service.

        2. The Main and Janos is about 5 blocks away. Both may cater to tourists, but are not touristy.

          1. How about Ruby Burma?
