Update :

I spoke with GM of Hotel Suraj Grand and he confirmed that they can accomodate our large group and also confirmed they have decent parking space for our cars

I'm trying to get a deal from him so that it's a "one-price-one menu" so there is no hassle of ordering food or waiting for same when we reach Kurnool

There is no buffet concept in Kurnool but, GM has agreed to do a special buffet for us

He is yet to come back with a confirmed pricing but, it is roughly working out to ~700/Head which includes the following :

1. Centralized Air-conditioned Banquet Hall
2. Welcome Drink
3. Buffet consisting of 2 NV Starters, 2 Veg Starters, 2 Veg Gravies, 2 NV Gravies, Breads,Biryanis, Rice, Dal, Sambar, 2 Desserts


Hope this price is agreeable to all of us?

Request all to carry "correct" amount of cash as it works out cheaper if we pay cash

Look forward to more participation as this would be great opportunity to meet and greet

Parking availability is good news. For Kurnool, 700 sounds a bit high.

What is the activity plan? Is it Meet, Eat and Retreat?

The figure of 700 per head would come down if we get more participation.

Directly proportional you see.

Nope! Not really in this case. The price is more or less fixed. He quoted 750 and I plan to bring him down so that figure is tentative.

Reason is that concept of Buffet is not there in Kurnool and if we do an ala-carte it will work out much higher than 700 P.P

Besides above, they will be giving a dedicated banquet hall in this buffet price which is a big +

And, yeah it will be a meet, greet, eat and retreat

@Avi - send the format of a buffet lunch @ that price in Hyd for him to get a perspective of the number of items in a buffet and our expectations.

May I suggest you tell him to have his Head Chef draw up a traditional Rayalseema menu as per the format you have agreed upon and send it to you for review and approval.

Me thinks a soup, a salad, papad, pickle, curd rice, raita and an additional dessert to be included at that price .

For 20 or more diners, separate banquet hall/poolside is a normal inclusion in the per head meal tariff.

My two cents,
Cheers

Alright, I received a sample menu from the GM which is outlined below. I spoke to him and requested for an authentic rayalaseema menu and he agreed and asked me to share what was on our mind.

He also agreed to adding 1 more curry to main course section in both Veg and Non-Veg

Alternate option is to keep the main course with 1 curry and instead increase the starter from 2 to 3 which I strongly propose as most folks will get satiated after the starters itself.

Thoughts?

Btw, the price of INR 700/head is fixed and he cannot do any better

I checked with old hotel as well (DVR Mansion) and he never bothered to call me back and also during my brief discussion mentioned Banquet hall will be charged separately

Keeping above in mind. Suraj Grand is a good deal !!!

Are you & Waseem sitting together and suggesting?
These dishes (in bold) are what Waseem messaged Avinash on WhatsApp.
Too much of same to same thinking. Or is just that these are the dishes.
