Hi! I replied to your PM, but also adding. If you are looking for western venue with chinese food, you can try some of the most upscale chinese restaurants like Mr. K or Tang’s Pavillion. Or find an empty venue space and bring in outside catering, who can cook whatever type of food you like.

That being said, $65 pp may be difficult to pull off in a western setting.

 Goodluck!

i think it would be really hard to find a chinese caterer for a western venue.  if you want goooood chinese food, i suggest going to a chinese restaurant for the reception. accommodating 150 is not a problem for most of the bigger restaurants in Chinatown Boston such as Hei La Moon (my fave) and Empire Garden.  China Pearl’s food is pretty good too, but the venue is not as nice.

In Flushing, I went to a wedding at the Sheraton a few years ago (I think or was it Marriot) it was right off Main Street.   The Sheraton definitely has several courses of typical Chinese food.  But let me tell you as another Chinese American, I didn’t like the very traditional Chinese food and I was hungry afterwards.  I’m too Americanized I guess…   Price wise I think the Sheraton is pretty cheap. 

My friend had a wedding at Gum Fung (restaurant – I know it as a dim sum place) 2 years ago but I didn’t go. 

There are a lot of restaurants in Chinatown but I can’t think of anything right now.  I’ll ask my friend or pay more attention next time I’m in the area. 

Wherever you book though, make sure they will let you bring outside food in.  Some places don’t let you. 

My friend had a wedding at Bank Street events in Stamford, CT and he had outside Asian caterers.  I’ll ask him where they got their food from. 

oh btw – I’m also in CT but we are not having Asian food at our wedding.
