Sorry. No offense. Couldn't stop myself when I read the post.

What's 'safe' got to do with women in short skirts?!

With these many Tbhpians around, anyone should feel safe.

Guys,

No further price reduction in Sunny's deal. Got a similar deal with Big Wheels @ Rs. 450. What are your thoughts. By EOD today we should finalize the Venue.

MODS : any option to open the votes? or can we mass PM to people who have confirmed?

Throttle bhai,

I trust you with the arrangements. I leave it to you bro. You decide I follow.

That said Rs 650 at Sunny DHABHA is expensive. Is he charging parking charges of Rs 200 per vehicle

Big Wheels @ Rs. 450 also sounds reasonable. Does it have ample parking ?

In the past, we had done sunny two times and big wheels once.
Sunny offer really good food as compared to Big Wheels.
I think, once we paid rs 600 per head at Sunny.
Don't think for that extra 200 charged by Sunny, go for it.

Sunny should be perfect. Fixed price is the way to go. No problems.

Are we going for car pooling??

Nobody would dare to even mess with anyone else at the dhaba. Such are the decibel levels at this meet. Both vocally and er, revvingly. Safety is guaranteed for 1 square km

Guys, we go with Sunny. The food is rather good. Also, this event happens once a year. I'm sure people can cough up the money. Also, at big Wheels people tend to form small groups & there is less interaction. This is less so at Sunny's.

Had a word one more time with Sunny. No change in pricing. Rs. 650 including all the taxes for fix unlimited dinner menu. no other charges.

What say guys?

Sunny OR Big Wheels? Akkad bakkad bumbe bo?

EDIT : Yes I kind of agree with you 1self on that, not to forget loud music @Big Wheels. And by no means I find Rs. 650 expensive for the kind of food we get at Sunny

The general opinion seems to be that the food quality at Sunny matches the premium it's charging over Big Wheels. Parking space too seems to be more or less similar. So let's focus on the other parameters such as availability of a separate space, less ambient (or external) noise (both literally and figuratively), quality of service and such others.

From what I have read up here, I wouldn't mind giving Sunny a try. Sure it's costly but then if the food is good and the service is good, it's less stress for us and we can focus on meeting others and talking without having to worry about food ordered but not arrived, or food arrived but not ordered scenarios.

Join in! Even if you weren't a member, you can come along. I doubt if anyone would have asked you to go back!

Lets give competition a chance. We have done this in the past at Sunny right? Why not give Big Wheels a try?

Having said that, I haven't been to BW. So people who have gone there, do provide your inputs! Have definitely been to Sunny, decent place.

We tried Sunny n times, it offers good food, good location, good crowd.
And we have not found better place than it.
So, this year also, Sunny-da-dhaba is perfect place for team-bhp mega meet.
No more discussion about the venue and pricing please.

Its Sunny-da-dhaba!!

We tried it once, but sunny is way ahead of Big wheels as far as food quality is concerned.

Yes of course. Newbies (and even non-members, but BHPians at heart) are welcome!

Though please do note down your intent to participate here, so that the numbers can be counted accurately.

@ ASHISHPALLOD - Title now mentions "@ Sunny da Dhaba".

@ Throttleking - now that you have ASHISHPALLOD's blessings as the thread starter, take a call and finalize the meal-plan.

Thanks. Isn't Sunny da dhaba a tad bit expensive? Aw, i guess spending 650 to meet the most car crazy aficionados is worth it...
