Good Food in Northridge?

Help!! I just moved to Northridge for school and I can't find anything to eat! I would appreciate ANY food recommendations, but near CSUN would be particularly helpful (I don't have a car and live near campus).

Thank you!

  1. Galleria Market-- Reseda and Devonshire-- they have Korean food for sale in the store and in the restaurant area just in front of the store.

    There's a falafel place right across the street from CSUN.
    Falafel Palace - (818) 993-0734 - 9255 Reseda Blvd

    Vallarta grocery store-- Reseda and Parthenia-- they have Mexican food and drinks to go, plus you can shop, but it will be a bit of a walk.
    Vallarta Supermarket - (818) 576-1280 - 8453 Reseda Blvd

    There's another wrap place-- they make their own bread. Very good stuff. It's in the marketplace where Northridge Pharmacy used to be. You can walk there from CSUN.
    Pita Pocket - (818) 709-4444 - 9127 Reseda Blvd

    I know a number of people who like Mandarin Deli. I went once, and didn't like what I ordered, but it's close to CSUN (walking distance).
    Mandarin Deli Restaurant - (818) 993-0122 - 9305 Reseda Blvd

    Hope you like some or all of these. :)

    1. e&e cafe. northeast corner of reseda and nordhoff, on the second floor above panda express.

      1. California Chicken Cafe is pretty good, can't miss food. It's in the same shopping center as the E&E Cafe.

        A&W Seafood (Chinese food) is on Reseda and Prairie (?). Decent dim sum.

        You got your usual chains to, Chilis, McDs, etc.

        1. Get a car! But the (Reseda Blvd.) bus will bring you to:
          Vallarta Market is further S of Parthenia but, on Reseda, not! walking distance.
          The Indian restaurant in the same corner as Galleria Market has a good buffet - Village Tandoor. Also next to Village is, Honey Baked Ham for sammys, then across the street behind Carrows) there's Catch 21 for fish, chicken and such, Outdoor Grill, Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf and a couple of other shops that might interest you (Reseda/Devonshire). On the other side where BofA is there's a nifty little sushi place - great for dinner and VERY popular w students. If you take the bus down Nordhoff West, there's Tampa where you'll find the Northridge Mall, to the north, small strip on the Left, East -where you'll find, Rosie's BBQ -YUM! a thai shop, greek rest. and a Japanses/sushi bar. A little further down -1 extra block (Shirley and Nordhoff) there's L & A Asian buffet, Punjab Indian (great buffet) and an Italian rest. :)KQ Good Luck and Have Fun!

          1. Allesio's on reseda is always good. Its about a mile north of CSUN on reseda.
