help with lunch in Chatworth please

hi, meeting a friend in Chatsworth for lunch this Saturday.
she wants to meet in Westlake [since I'm there, she's willing to drive] but I'll be driving through Chatsworth on way home. she is close to Chatsworth.
she has no 'good' ideas for lunch and asked me to find a suitable place.
we want to dine and yak and giggle.
I've not lived in Chatsworth for years and it's changed so much I have no idea if there's a good place where the food is good and will be right for us to dine.

  1. Khun Dang is a very good Thai restaurant on Topanga Canyon. And there's a good Indian lunch buffet at Woodlands, also on Topanga.

        Brents Deli is on Parthenia, near Corbin, technically in Northridge. Also in Northridge I'll occasionally meet people at Wood Ranch BBQ or Rosie's. But I'm watching this thread carefully - I've been working in Chatsworth for over two years now, and still have trouble with this.

        1. re: asimen

          There is a Rosie's BBQ on Topanga, just south of Devonshire, not related to the Rosie's in Northridge. You ever been there?

          1. re: reality check

            thanks to those that replied. just now called Rosies. while they are open/eat in I more got the impression they mostly cater.
            by the look of the building, uh

            1. re: iL Divo

              The one on Topanga is all about take out. No place to sit and eat, really.However, if open, Chatsworth Park is across the street......

              1. re: Kitchen Queen

                They have a small area with about 4-5 tables.

                1. re: Kitchen Queen

                  ah the memories of this little girl going to Chatsworth Park Elementary school.
                  but I really preferred riding my horses through Chatsworth Park or better yet Spahn's Ranch. take out to the park, great idea!

              2. re: reality check

                Haven't been to that one. My understanding is that they have different ownership than the one on Tampa, by the way. Also, they had a "B" in the window for a while, so I kind of shied away....

                1. re: asimen

                  yep a B would make you take notice

              1. re: Kitchen Queen

                I don't get it either. The Machacado is the only good thing I've had there. Though, I think you can get a cheap gift certificate to use there. I prefer Villanueva or any of the various taco spots scattered throughout town.

              2. Woodlands has a lunch buffet and a great selection of Southern Indian items.

                    Woodlands is all vegetarian fair. Very good. Though for buffets I love Village Tandoori in Northridge, though I recall someone on the board mentioning something bad about the management. Red Chili Halaal (more towards Reseda) is very good. Tawakal is great but really slow (the wok tossed lamb is amazing).
