      Kabuki a pedestrian Japanese restaurant is two minutes from the Mall. Desi Village is one of several Indian restaurants within 5 minutes of the mall.

      In Bridgeport (5 minutes away) Dolce Vita is an acceptable family style italian restaurant.

      Its only 10 minutes to Conshohocken and you can eat at Blackfish.... as well as Chiang Mai, and Fayette Street Grill.

      And its about 15 minutes to Lafayette Hill and From the Boot and good italian food.

        All good suggestions.
        I might also add Tiramisu in Berwyn for better than decent Italian fare with a Jewish bent.

          Interesting. Do you know if these are the same people that owned Tiramisu on 3rd street years ago? I loved their artichokes.

                They recently reopened on the 1500 block of Walnut in Center City too (I think it was an Il Tartufo before).

            BIG BIG BIG +1's for Desi Village and Kabuki. Those are my go-to's for Indian and sushi. Really solid food and really good prices. I've never had an issue with getting a table at Desi Village at any hour of the day on any day, while Kabuki can get pretty packed on weekends, and parking, though a private lot, is a bit tight too.

            Short drive to Blackfish in Conshy. The $45 tasting menu on Tuesdays is great!

              I have to add my + for Blackfish. Their tasting menus are always incredible!

                Thai L'Elephant in Phoenixville, about 15 minutes away
                Nothing really right there in vicinity of the mall.
