Yes, Sunny's Dhaba isn't exactly cheap by highway dhaba standards, but the food is outstanding. Still, 900 bucks a pop is 5 star hotel level. I suggest we go la carte.

Now Bigwheels is a proper car guys joint. The setup is perfect but it would be a little too far for the Bombay clan to drive down. About 25.2 kms ahead of Sunny?

Lonavala to Big Wheels Motoring Cafe - Google Maps

EDIT: Fiat Punto users group is meeting at BWM on the 4th and they are offered a deal of Rs. 550/- per head for 50 people.

I too feel that 900 bucks is definitely overpriced, and 650 in 2009 was also overpriced, though we enjoyed the food. Even I wont mind paying 900 this time, only to save us from hassles and delicious unlimited food

Last year pune - mumbai meet happened at Big Wheels, I dont think distance is any concern for mumbai guys. However some people did not like the food.

Last time we paid 450 bucks per head, I can work out something similar this time also. + the auto enthu theme is an add on

I don't mind to pay rs 900 but it is definitely overpriced.
a-la-carte will be hassle for throttle looking at the sheer size of attendees, i mean number of attendees and not physical size of attendee.

As throttle mentioned, last year megameet happened at Big Wheels.

I suggest,

take a quick poll to check preference for
1] sunny-da-dhaba---rs900
2] big wheels cafe-----rs abc
3] tony-da-dhaba------rs xyz.
[ I never visited tony-da-dhaba. Is tony-da-dhaba fit for our meet? If yes, then only add as an option for poll.]


Is there any cafe/hotel in Lonavala itself with proper parking?

@ashish

Tony is equally expensive plus the food is not as great as sunny'

Lets open the poll for 4 options

Sunny @ Rs. 900 per head
Sunny @ A-la-carte
Big Wheels @ Rs. 550 aprox per head
Big Wheels @ A-la-carte

I suggest,
remove big wheels @ a-la-carte as an option.
keep only three options.

Yup, 900 per head just for food is a bit of a shocker . I guess since a lot of us know each other, we can manage a la carte and sharing/settling should not be too much of a problem (famous last words?!! ).

You know what- it doesn't matter even if I have to pay 900 per head- be great to catch up with the Bombay crowd.

You 85-86 percenters, this isn't SSC board exam, boss. Please make it 100%. Akki, can't wait to see the VAGnificent Skoda though I see from your signature that you have enough worthy alternatives to choose from!

Edit: Just saw the poll. My vote is for Big Wheels @550/-

I'm regular @ big wheels. This place surely rocks with the automobile theme. I'm sure ashutosh would work out a good price.
Yes, it would be bit far from mumbai.
I'm In !

Even I do not mind paying the 900 per head cost. This is a once in a while meet and paying that amount sure does not bother me personally. Taking into consideration the quality of food we get at Sunny, this amount should be worth it.

However, having said that, if others feel it is overpriced, then any other option (BWM, a la Carte at Suny) also works for me.

EDIT: Akki, it would be great if you could get your VAGified Skoda. Please. I would love to see it and get some ideas for my ride too.
