most of the guys are comfortable with 900rs so why confusion?we should not spoil it just for 200-300rs.and big wheels is 25 kms far means 25+25=50kms=4 lts petrol=280rs!jokes apart if we want to try something new we can try bigwheels too.

Well I agree with you. And as the count grows, I will continue to negotiate with Sunny.

The Big Wheels meet last year had two dampeners (in my view) :

1. Quality of the food was at best so-so
2. The (loud-ish) music drowned any conversation that we tried to have

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.
GTO which car you are getting?actually am dying to audition your civic.yes ICE and FFE.

@issigonis- you back from ZA? Someone reported spotting your car the other day. Be nice to meet the legend

Yeah 900 is fine for me as well. Let's not have the Bombay gang drive so much so late. And any place with loud music etc. is OUT!

SUNNY @ Rs 900 is overpriced but as the past experience with food and ambience has been good i am ok with it.
A'LA CARTE will be very tedious for the guys ordering and keeping track of the orders, it will not be fair for them to miss out on the camaraderie and fun. Fixed price menu will make it more hasslefree for them.
I am also game for any alternate place etc etc. I just want to be there when the meet happens.
Distance shouldn't be a problem but good food, separate reserved seating and good ambience is desirable.
Lastly to throttleking for taking time and getting all these details for us.

Even my vote goes in for Sunny dhaba @900. A la carte becomes a big pain to order and keep track. And by the time it is 11th June we never know how much would be the count.

As AP said Lock Kiya Jaye from my end.

900 per person at sunny is robbery. Period.

Count me out .

We can do much better here in Mumbai for less than 900.

Also driving almost into Pune is a pain too. Remember Babi da Dhaba ?

noopster,

I am yet to touch ZA - have been elsewhere and at work. If I do not have to go out again, I will be there on the 11th.
Look forward to meet you too.

Just my two cents, since i'm from lonavala.. 900 a person is way too expensive. I think even if u guys go with regular a la carte, it won't cost as much! Also i would suggest you guys to check out Big wheels once just cuz its a motoring place, has good music, and super cool food too. Also, i know owners to both places, and will be happy to help in any negotiations!
