I do not mind coming earlier and trying to re-negotiate. I will most probably be going earlier in the day to Khandala and will be staying there for the weekend. Will join the meet from there most probably if my Khandala plan is on else from Mumbai.

Thats perfect!

I'm sure you'll get us a great deal!

Good initiative Throttleking. Appriciate your efforts in making this event happen for all of us. I have got your number will call you and confirm the meeting place and time.

650 bucks is fine, if re-negotiation happens it will be even better.
I just cant wait to be there. Vrrrrrrooom

Hey guys thanks a lot, i just wanted to ensure that we have things organised there and we do not struggle at the event leaving your meet enjoyment aside. hence did this.

I have tried my best to negotiate with SDD, and i believe we got the best deal, everything unlimited in just 650rs is fair deal. you might get same thing at Rs. 300 or 400 as well but not in sunny, it is an expensive and exclusing place, it is a dhaba but no truck walas and auto wala come there to have their regular meal, as i said earlier Chicken Tikka will cost you 240rs at SDD and its worth it, it is for people who would like to enjoy exclusive food and service in dhaba like place. It is quite simple guys i enjoy the bun maska at church gate at rs. 5 only but same bread butter will cost you bomb in 5 star hotel. but thik hai mai abhi jada tareef nahi karta, saala usane khana aur service bigada to tum log meri waat laga dalonge :P

We still have time, i have to confirm the final count to him on friday, we can decide on time as where to go, somebody can come up with new suggested place with better deal or you can re-negotiate with SDD, if you get a better deal, i will be happy to pay less and enjoy more following are the contact numbers.

Gulshan (Manager ) 9890805437
Owner 9822065345


Lets get it organised before the event, its a big count and lets not spoil the fun part of the meet in order to get things right at the place during the meet. Lets all seat together and do all the muttergasti

Hey TK,

You missed the whole point. Most high end restaurants in Mumbai China Garden, China Gate, Khyber, Shalimar, etc will offer you a similar package with many more dishes on the menu.

Its not about whether you pay xyz at churchgate or at a 5 star. What he offers you at Rs240/- is much more than what others offer at lesser pricing.

Your efforts are appreciated and like I said earlier we shall try and re-negotiate if not then no one will crib so don't worry. Money is not a criteria for me and I would still be part of the meet at whatever price was decided.

My only point is the deal is not VFM period.

I agree with you, i was trying to justify the pricing :P, but i am also saying the same thing it expensive and yes i do agree. But more important is meet, so i dont mind paying 650 rs and at the same time i am looking forward for better deal, lets try and negotiate.

only point is we need to confirm him the count on friday and he is gonna make preperations accordingly hence negotiating after giving a final count wont make sense.

there is no mandate from his side to go for fixed menu, we can oreder on time as per our choice, he will still do the seating arrangements for us, no issue there.

In the end, i appreciate your concern and i agree that 650 is not cheap, but thats the rate there in Sunny, tonny.

I agree, throttle you only negotiate, I'm sure you can turn this around, too many people talking will completely spoil this.

I'm game with a friend, we both are veggies.

See you soon guys.. lets do a final recap latest by Friday afternoon.

Time:
Place:
List of people:
Per head rate If veg and non-veg can be different then nothing like it:
Camera's if we plan to shoot, then we should have a fix a time so that everyone is aware.
Rest fun time.

I would have really liked to come, but it seems you guys will have to have fun on my behalf.

Have lots of fun, drive safely (no racing and all that crap) and don't drink and drive, no matter what.

How about a 'Moderator' only makes a post with confirmed attendance? Everyone pm's the mod to confirm, then he/she can amend the post at anytime to reflect confirmed numbers?
