Anaheim Convention Center

Looking for some good dinner spots near the Anaheim Convention Center. Any good Thai or Indian close by? I am trying to stay away from Downtown Disney and the chains, although I hear the bar bites menu at Morton's steakhouse is good. I will be staying at the Hilton. Has anyone tried Mix, at the Hilton?
Thanks in advance.

  1. Thai Nakorn in Garden Grove for Northern Thai. It's one of the best Thai restaurants in OC / LA, and just a short drive from the Convention Center. Stick to the Isaan specialties, chef's specials, whatever they're called, rather than the usual Thai dishes you can get everywhere.

    1. There is a nice small collection of African options not too far away if you are interested. Merhhaba is Eritrian/Ethiopian. Kenyan Cafe and Cuisine is, well, Kenyan, and Tana is another Ethiopian place in the same area.

      I can vouch for the first. I have read mixed reviews on the second (though it is in my sights) and I have heard good things about the third.

      And I can definitely second the recommendation for Thai Nakorn.
