Inexpensive, goods eats near westwood & santa monica?

I'm looking for some good, fairly inexpensive places to eat around the intersection of westwood and santa monica. There are a bunch of Persian restaurants in the area, but I'm not sure which one to choose.

Am open to any kind of cuisine and would love to try something new!

Thanks.

  1. Only 300 feet north on Westwood Blvd., west side is:

    Sunnin - Lebanese
    1779 Westwood Blvd.
    (310) 477-2358

    http://www.sunnin.com

    I suggest you try that place first. Parking is tricky, call them for advice. The place is small, seating limited but go anyway.

    1. A little further north from Sunnin is Shahrzad (East side of Westwood Blvd. and Ohio). Great lunch specials. Quick service and great Persian Food. Try the Tachin. Delicious!

      Shahrzad Restaurant
      1422 Westwood Boulevard.
      Los Angeles, CA 90024
      (310) 470-3242

        1. There's a lot of good cheap eats around there.

          1. Ambla Dhaba (sp?). Indian. Just north of SM/WW intersection. Used to be beter, IMO, but tasty.

          2. Eduardo's burritos. Just S of SM/WW (on east side). My favorite are the chicken burrito - original and the spinach/mushroom quesadilla. Really fresh and much better than baja fresh (but similar).

          3. Philly West. Just S of SM/WW (on east side). Great sandwiches. The hoagie steak is delicious!! The hoagies are very reasonably priced and you can get 1/2 sandwich.

          4. Westwood Country Cafe - I'm not positive that's the name. It's on Westwood/La Grange. This place is fantastic. I recently ate here and had the veggie/goat cheese panini. It was very flavorful. The prices are a little more than philly west, but the panini sandwiches are served w/salad. They have a very big menu and lots of specials like meatloaf and other american fare.

          5. Sunnin is very good. Shahrzad is also ok - but I don't think it is as good as Sunnin.

          1. the lunch specials at shamshiri are great and very reasonably priced.
