Planning a May trip to aformentioned amusement park and would like suggestions on Indian, Mexican and other delectible ethic spots nearby.

  1. Wish you the best of luck on your quest. If all else fails, there is an In N Out nearby.

    1. You are going to be in "white bread" country, good luck.

      1. As long as it's not ambience you're seeking (which I'd assume you'd sacrifice for something other than Tony Roma's, which is near there) You could always take a break from the theme park and retreat to the slice of greenery situated off to the side of 6F's parking lot for a picneek with whatever you want. Pack a cooler, but what you decide to bring will have to be decided on that (i've found a lot of thai food, as long as it's not seafood keeps and flavor intensifies, but I'd assume the same would hold for indian food-tandoori chicken, esp. would be good for a picnic. It's a small block (it's been awhile since I've been there), but there are a few trees scattered. You may be joined by some others that have chosen the same route.

        1. In the immediate area there are only chains: Red Lobster, Wendy's, Hamburger Hamlet, El Torito.

          A 5-15 minute drive would get to some other spots, but its mostly chain restaurants out here. Examples, Outback, Elephant Bar, Cupid's, Panda Express.

          For Mexican, the only places I know of are chains, Baja Fresh, Cabo Cabana, Rubio's. There is an Indian restaurant, Tandoori Grill, but I haven't eaten there yet. There are a couple good chinese places, Mandarin 88 and Mandarin Wong, but you'd have to drive a ways.

          1. There's actually a surprisingly decent Il Fornaio-type northern Italian place in one of the big shopping centers in Valencia ... off Newhall Ranch Road I think (?) If anyone remembers the name, help me out here...

            1. re: Bradbury

              Are you thinking of Sisley's? I know that there is one in Valencia somewhere - haven't eaten there but I have eaten at the branches in Sherman Oaks (corner of Sepulveda and Ventura) and the Westside Pavilion, and have had pretty good (if fairly generic) meals at both places.
