Curry Evening - will there be an interest ?

Hi again. A month ago I catered for 90 people at a birthday party.
I served 2 types of curry (chicken & Vegetarian) with this I had an enormous amount of pappadums, pickles, raita and basmati rice and lots of other condiments. It was a big success, people loved it. Now my question is! If I where to organize a curry evening at around CHF.35:-person and wine and beer offered a relative cheep price would there be any interest? I am just trying to get a feel and if the responce is good I will organize an evening here in basel.
Nils

Re: Curry Evening - will there be an interest ?

Your price would be similar to a restaurant (chicken curry, rice, pickles/papads) so it would depend on the venue.

However, where you could win out is that most restaurant curry here is not good I'd prefer lamb though, but not sure what that does to your economics.
