Lunch Recommendations in Anaheim, CA?

We're driving down to Anaheim on a Sunday and are wondering where we can have a nice lunch? Something mid-priced, ideally not a chain, and a good place to relax and talk. Any recommendations would be a big help. Thanks.

  1. Are you are going to the House of Mouse or are you more mobile? If you are at Disney, a friend of mine really loves Catal. If you are not tied to the area, there are some great ethnic choices in the area. Tana Ethiopian is in the area, though it is not at all fancy. There are lots of choices for Vietnamese nearby as well. The two Brodards are popular and related, though the Chateau is far more upscale and less authentic. There are two branches of the excellent Thai Nakorn restaurant, with the one in Stanton closer but the one in Garden Grove much nicer (same menu though)

    Thai Nakorn
    11951 Beach Blvd, Stanton, CA 90680

    Thai Nakorn Restaurant
    12532 Garden Grove Blvd, Garden Grove, CA 92843

    Tana Ethiopian Restaurant and Market
    2622 W La Palma Ave, Anaheim, CA 92801

    Brodard Restaurant
    9892 Westminster Ave, Garden Grove, CA 92844

    Catal Restaurant and Uva Bar
    1580 Disneyland Drive, Anaheim, CA 92803

    Brodard Chateau
    9100 Trask Ave, Garden Grove, CA 92844

        Being southern Californian residents, and having tried most of the restaurants at Downtown Disney, I can recommend Catal. We have dined there several times, and love their cuisine. Very reasonable, also.

        For future reference, the Garden Grove Thai Nakorn is much closer to Disneyland than the Stanton one; it's just down the street.
