Recommendations for 3 Days in Walnut Creek & Pleasant Hill

So I'm spending 3 nights in Walnut Creek just off Treat Boulevard, for work. I am looking for good non-chain eats in the area. So far I've found it tough to find much interesting, but I'm sure I'm not looking in the right places.

Any recommendations for good restaurants? Especially good Mexican or Indian restaurants? I'm from North Carolina, where neither exist, currently. Thanks!!!

  1. For Indian, I would go with Saroor, 2580 N Main St. in Walnut Creek. Very tasty and reasonable.

    1. Recent topic on Mexican places in Walnut Creek / Concord:

      Recently updated topic on best restaurants in the general area:

        1. Indian - Namaste in the Park 'n' Shop, Concord. One of my fave Indian restaurants, anywhere.

          Namaste Indian Cuisine
          1671 Willow Pass Rd, Concord, CA 94520

          1. for good mexican make the trip to los montanas in the park n shop strip mall in concord near todo santos square. the fish tacos are delicious, the margaritas are as big as my face and the sweet hot sauce burns so good! they also have a band on weekends.
            for good indian cuisine i generally head out to berkeley. try naan and curry or house of curries.

              What's a sweet hot sauce bun? Is that a regional thing? New one on me.

                that's b-u-r-n, not bun -- I think the poster is referring saying that she loves the heat of the sweet hot sauce.
