Pasadena area graduation dinner around $20pp?

CookieEater | May 17, 2007 02:50 PM

Need suggestions please for 2 families, group of 11 incl. 2 young kids, Saturday night dinner in SGV area for my boyfriend's PhD graduation.
Nothing pricey, but no cheesy chain restaurants. I would prefer ethnic food to give them a real L.A. experience, but need to be able to make reservations. It can't be "too ethnic" because I am not sure how adventurous the other family is, if-you-know-what-I'm-saying.

Pasadena is highly preferred.

El Portal - we've all been there numerous times
President Thai - love it, prefer trying something new
Green Street - safe. maybe too safe?
Xiomara - went there w/boyfriend and family last time
PF Chang's - chain. and too salty for me blech.
Saladang and Saladang Song - I'd prefer President Thai over these
Azeen's - maybe too ethnic even for my family
Cheesecake Factory - don't even think about it! :P
the new places in S. Pas - too expensive?

Please help?!?
