dearest chowhounders - i'm getting married later this year in sf. my fiancee and i are both chinese and we're looking for suggestions for a restaurant that can cater our wedding reception... chinese banquet style.
some specifics - wedding reception will be hosted in sf in the fall on a saturday. location is at a wedding hall, not the chinese restaurant itself. 150 guests. food budget is generous. we're ready to splurge here and save on other things.
some requirements -
1) restaurant must be on the larger side - ie, kitchen needs to be large enough to cook for 150 wedding guests in addition to their normal saturday flow of customers. therefore, rule out that fave hole in the wall
2) should go without saying but the restaurant must be able to prepare an authentic chinese banquet
3) rule out the following: r&g lounge (being difficult), empress of china (straight-up won't do it), yank sing (it's a long story) and tong kiang (a possibility, in discussions)
