Yum Yum is a bit narrow- probably not good for a large turnout, unless
there's a room in the back I don't know about.

I could be thinking of the wrong restaurant, and even if I'm not, I'd
rather have Indian food than Chinese/Japanese (I've never had Indian
food I didn't like!)

I can think of a couple, but while trying to re-discover their names
(just know by general location) came up with another interesting idea-
Golden Era http://www.goldeneravegetarian.com/ It is large, 3.5 blocks
from Powell BART, and all vegetarian- meat-eaters like myself find it
quite good too.

There aren't any restaurants with large extra rooms in the back. Some
are largish in their main room. They are all about as close to the
BART station as possible... I have only been to two SFPUG meetings and
need to see a few more before recommending any place with confidence
they can hold us.
