Northridge Area Dinner Suggestion?

We are driving in from Tucson to the Northridge area and want to have a nice dinner with my sis-in-law.

Any type of cuisine works for us, it needs to be casual with a moderate price.

She thought there was a good Japanese restaurant somewhere in the area but she didn't know where or the name of the place - She doesn't get out much!

We have a car, our MINI Cooper, so we can drive to nearby towns.

Your help will be appreciated!

  1. I would go to Alessio's. It is on Reseda Blvd. Very good Italian.

    1. If you like seafood and Chinese food, go to A&W off of Reseda Blvd. and Prairie. Order a live fish and live crab cooked house special style or with ginger and scallions. Very yummy. Ask how much the price is per pound. Dinner probably won't cost more than $20-25 per person. It's something you probably can't get in Tucson.

      1. How about Les Sisters in Chatsworth off the corner of Devonshire and Topanga. Soul food slash cajun, but my favorite is still the smothered pork chops.

        1. Thanks! I am drooling as I read these, any more suggestions?

            The Japanese place is Omino on Devonshire.

          2. Alexis Greek in Northridge on Tampa (?). Kitty Corner from the Northridge Fashion Center.

            Woodland's Pure in chatsworth...very, very low-key and not fancy to look at, but AMAZING indian food at a fabulous price.

            Veggie Delight is near there..good chinese. As said above, A & W chinese is pretty durn good.

            If you can drive to the Ventura strip, which goes across the Valley from Studio City to Woodland Hills, your options open up.

            Il Tiramisu
            Clay Oven
            Great Greek
            Sushi House of Taka
            la Frite
            Senior Fred

            and so on

              Alexis Greek is a very enjoyable restaurant with good food and nice staff. I've been there with a large group, too, and they were very accommodating.
