Curry Time anyone?

Some of us Baslers fancy our monthly curry restaurant fix. So for the April 2011 curry fix, may I propose an old favourite:


Wednesday April 13th
at 19:30 at the Mandir Restaurant just a little along the road from the centre of Basel

Easy to Walk/Cycle to or get the tram no. 3 or bus no. 30


Mandir (http://www.mandirbasel.com/English/Home.aspx)
Spalenvorstadt 9
4051 Basel
Tel.: +41 (0)61 261 99 93
info@mandirbasel.com
info@mandir.ch


The limit for this month is 25 so, please only sign up as yes if you plan to come definitely. No shows will be noted down.

If you are not sure or only wish to join for a drink later in the evening please RSVP as “maybe”.


All are welcome, newcomers or "old hands" - just post below or PM me for more info or if you have any questions.


See you soon,


Sagar

Re: Basel Curry Night, April 2011

3 requirements for participating in this event:

  • Bring your good mood
  • Bring your sense of humour
  • And obviously, bring your wallet
I will check with the owner whether it is possible for a buffet at a fixed price, but obviously that depends on a promised volume of people showing up.

From previous organisers' experiences, that is not a certainty, but anyway let me get the information and put it up.

Collect the money before anyone sit down.

Honestly, if you go this route be prepared to potentially end up footing the bill for no shows. It has happened so many times in the past that I really don't recommend it. Totally up to you though and good for you for organising.

Re: Basel Curry Night, April 2011

I spoke with the establishment at Mandir, but unfortunately the buffet menu option did not seem to have much support. The volume required to put out a buffet also seemed a tad high at atleast 30 (considering recent turnouts).

It seems that a-la-carte is the only option. Which is fine with me, although a "lower priced - more variety" dinner would have been nicer.

Anyway, I will wait till Thursday to get a feel of the sort of numbers and then approach them again to reserve a certain number of places for us.

I'll pm the people who confirm as definite by the beginning of next week to get a confirmed count.

Re: Basel Curry Night, April 2011

I think the late announcement and holiday preparations before the Easter weekend have kept people from signing up.

Fair message. I'll cancel this one and schedule a fresh one for next month with ample notice. That way, it will be on most peoples' radars.
