I'm sure you'll come through for me.
We are celebrating two birthdays next Sunday (mine and my SIL's). We're looking for a restaurant that is along Taraval, West Portal or possibly even Noriega. What we're looking for is a place where (1) parking won't be an issue - there will be three cars for 13 of us; (2) where it's not too expensive, maybe $10/entree on the average - my FIL is paying for everyone, so I want to be respectful, since he actually pays for all our b-days including his own; where it's big enough so we don't look like we took up the entire place; and where it doesn't have to be too quiet (there are 4 kids, 12, 10, 8, and 7 years old).
I am looking for recommendations of non-Chinese restaurants (to be different) but would like one recommendation of what you consider the best Chinese restaurant in that area as well in case we go that route (we normally go to Win's and Szechuan Taste, so we're not familiar w/other one).
Thanks in advance.
