Where should we eat in Azusa near the Azusa Pacific campus?

Any suggestions for where to eat in Azusa? Would prefer a small (non chain) restaurant. They don't need to serve liquor as I'm entertaining students. Ethnic is good. Thanks much.

  1. I think some of the recommendations you got when you asked the same question 40 days ago would work fine:

      Thanks..sorry, I couldn't find the post, and have since reviewed it. There are a few good suggestions, but I'm wondering if there are any Thai food restaurants worthy of a recommendation? Thanks again.

      1. re: hungry helga

        I don't think there are a lot of great Thai restaurants in that general part of the world. If you go as far east as San Dimas (the shopping plaza at Bonita & Arrow Highway, to be precise) I can recommend a place called Lucky Elephant.

    2. Try Spaghetti Eddies(italian) or Hana Haru(Japanese), both in the Sport Chalet center on Grand, just north of the 210 fwy.

        ok, seriously - what's edible at spaghettie eddies? i went there about a month ago, tried a seafood pasta dish that was the special for the night and came away disgusted, never wanting to step foot in the place again. any tips?

          I find things like chicken parm and lasagna to be perfectly acceptable renditions of what they are.

          1. re: The Oracle

            was that the langostino pasta? That would have been one of my recommendations. They make a pretty good build-your-own calzone too.

            BTW, the Hana Haru rec is for hot food only, I would not order sushi there.

            1. re: calabasas_trafalgar

              could have been the langostino pasta, I can't remember the name --I believe it was linguini in a cream sauce with shrimp and scallops - I recall picking out the seafood and left the rest -- the cream sauce and the linguini were practically inedible.

              If I ever end up there again, I'll take a stab at the other suggestions -- thank you both!!!

        2. chicken and ribs!!!

          its next to b-man's on alosta....the beef ribs aren't very good but the chicken is AMAZING!! (very moist and delicious) the sides are huge and tasty as well...the lunch special (before 4pm) is a great deal with HUGE portions

            chicken and ribs is the Greatest chicken around! i've never tried the ribs myself, but the chicken is worth a drive.
