Delicious ethnic food - place can handle big crowd - Northeast LA?

This is my first post, though I frequent the forum as a passive reader. I know there is a great post on top 5's in northeast LA/Glendale/Pasadena region, but I am stumped to come up with a place that can accomodate 12 or 15 people TONIGHT so hoping you can help. Here are the requirements, in order of importance:

Seriously good food because we're foodies. Both veg and nonveg options (probably something ethnic). Cheap because many of us are students and/or unemployed. Festive, because it's a birthday party (we're roller skating afterwards - a little flahsback).

We were thinking Polka in Eagle Rock because we like the kitsch and think the food is good, but afraid it won't appeal to many people. Also contemplating Mamitas in Glendale though it's not terribly festive and not sure about veg options. Would be willing to travel to Hollywood or Downtown. Please note we're not in the mood for kebabs.
