03.09.2013 19:00 to 21:30
*The times shown may change, depending on DST settings
City/Town: 3008 west Bern
Event Type: Dinner
Meeting Point: Maharaja Palace, Effingerstrasse 51

On the first Tuesday of each month we meet up for a meal and a chat at a reasonably priced restaurant in Bern.
This month we are eating at the Indian Restaurant Maharaja Palace, I could eat curry every day, so this will be a treat for me.

The menu is fairly long, and includes many vegetarian dishes http://www.maharajapalace.ch/speisekarte.html

It is near the Kaufmännischverband tram & bus stops, http://map.search.ch/bern/effingerst...gastro,service

Car parking is always difficult in town, City West is the nearest Parkhaus, http://map.search.ch/bern/effingerst...verkehr,gastro

Please don't choose a "maybe" selection. I find it embarrassing explaining that I don't know if the guest is coming or not.
There is a useful reminder function at the top right on this page, please decide, yes or no.

I will close the reservation list about 2 hours before we eat, and then tell the restaurant exactly how many of us are coming.

Looking forward to seeing you there, I will go there 45 minutes earlier and drink a large beer...

Re: Bern dinner club, Tuesday 3rd September, Indian night at the Maharaja Palace

Are there enough Indian restaurants to go to a different one each month?
I would be more than happy to change the title to "Bern Curry Club, night out at the Maharaja"

Bump - Anyone else in Bern up for some Indian cuisine next week?

And Homer - How are you feeling? Is the cast off yet?

I am just waiting on some 'special' shoes, still have to use crutches (which always get in the way) but it was good to see the doctor yesterday and be given a "Its going well" chat.

Re: Bern dinner club, Tuesday 3rd September, Indian night at the Maharaja Palace

I think the tram or bus stop at KaufmännischeVerband is nearer, tram routes 7, 8, bus number 17

http://map.search.ch/bern/kaufmaennischer-verband-haltestelle?poi=verkehr,gastro

http://www.marktgasse.info/testschau/wp-content/uploads/2013/02/BERNMOBIL_Umleitungen_Sanierung_Marktgasse.pdf

If you get in the front of the train from Thun, consider leaving the station at the west portal, by going up the escalator at the western end of the platform. You then walk down the hill, cross the road and catch the tram numbers 7 or 8 tram at the Hirschengraben stop. This saves you walking all through the main station.

Re: Bern dinner club, Tuesday 3rd September, Indian night at the Maharaja Palace

Thank you everyone for turning up, we had a good turnout and the company was excellent! It was good to see some new faces too!

Homer and I rushed out to catch the tram at 21:51 which never arrived, & so we enjoyed a coffee at Tibits.

Next month, Tuesday 1st October, it will be Mexican http://www.elmexicano.ch/
