Please critique my dinner party menu!

Here's the scenario: Casual buffet style dinner party for about 8-10 people, including 2 vegetarians, 1 non-adventurous diner who dislikes spicy foods, and the rest a bunch of adventurous and multicultural eaters.
I am a good cook but not always so good at planning a menu with elements that complement rather than clash. Prefer a mix of cultural influences rather than a theme. Any advice and critiques of my tentative menu will be greatly appreciated! Thanks, Serena
