Chinese-ish bride going mad seeking moderately priced Chinese banquet in SF for reception.

BrooklynTBone | Sep 24, 200402:10 PM     66

So I live in Brooklyn (am an East Bay dweller originally) and am getting married in SF. We want a traditional Chinese banquet reception for a small wedding of about 60 folks.

I am very, very picky about food, not so picky about decor (we can handle that). But I can't pay Tommy Toy or Harbor Village or Yank Sing prices.

Our tentative solution is upstairs at Ton Kiang, which isn't lavishly decorated, but looks clean.

My Chinese mother believes that this is a travesty. She is pushing Far East Cafe or Golden Mountain on me. I haven't heard of either one. I tried to talk to Koi Palace in Daly City, but they were mean and dismissive, so I banned them.

Any seasoned Chowhounds want to lend a batty bride a hand?
