Top 10 Restaurants Around CSUN


It’s a given, we all need (and LOVE) food. With all of the studying, tests, and projects, college students get especially hangry. (Trust me, I have experienced this firsthand.) So, what is the solution? Explore the top 10 restaurants around CSUN, of course.

1. Katsu-Ya

9701 Reseda Blvd Northridge, CA 91324; Phone: (818) 678-1700

Japanese with a twist? Excellent service? And, great reviews? Yes, please. One of my favorite restaurants around CSUN.


2. Got Sushi and King’s Bar

9345 Reseda Blvd. Northridge, CA 91324; Phone: (818) 885-6456

Sushi and burgers. Weird combination, but worth a try! The 989 reviews do not lie. This local favorite is out-of-this-world delicious and *BONUS* inexpensive.



3. Lum-Ka-Naad Thai Restaurant

8910 Reseda Blvd, Northridge, CA 91324; Phone: (818) 882-3028

If the food tastes as good as the pictures look, I am in. According to one reviewer, the authentic food is top notch, service is solid, and prices are decent. Some of their best dishes include Panang Curry, Spicy Krabi Chicken, and Kuah Gling. Good luck pronouncing those.  😉


4. Bun Me!

9420 Reseda Blvd Ste. # 5 Northridge, CA 91325; Phone: (818) 993-0438

With most dishes under $10, this Vietnamese restaurant is tasty and affordable! Try the Spring Rolls with Peanut Sauce one day and the Grilled Pork Banh Mi the next. The best part? *CSUN STUDENTS GET A DISCOUNT WITH ID!*


5. Lala’s Kitchen

8450 Reseda Boulevard, Northridge, CA 91324 ; Phone: (818) 812-9207

With 4.5 stars on Yelp, this Filipino eatery is worthy a try! You simply can’t go wrong with traditional dishes ranging from Beef Tapa to Pork Belly Adobo presented in a simply delectable way. Interestingly enough, there are even a few unique menu selections with Mediterranean influences! YUM.


6. Pita Pockets

9127 Reseda Boulevard, Northridge, CA 91324; Phone: (818) 709-4444

Who can resist mouthwatering Mediterranean classics, such as Chicken Schwarma and Beef Kabobs? I certainly can’t. According to the hundreds of reviews, the BEST part is everything is made fresh. Don’t believe me? The famous Laffa Bread is baked right in front of your eyes.



7. Urbane Café

9020 Reseda Blvd. Northridge, CA 91324; Phone: (818) 812-9036

This local American bistro proves that healthy can be nutritious and delicious. How can you say no to good service, fresh food, nice outdoor seating, and affordability?

8. California Chicken Café

18445 Nordhoff St. Northridge, CA 91325; Phone: (818) 700-9977


Salads, wraps, sandwiches, scrumptious side dishes, and free drinks with a CSUN student ID! Need I say more?


9. Brent’s Delicatessen & Restaurant

19565 Parthenia St, Northridge, CA 91324; Phone: (818) 886-5679


Pros? Classic deli menu, fresh ingredients, friendly staff, reasonable prices, and damn good coffee. Cons? Many people think Brent’s is the BEST deli in LA, so it can be somewhat crowded. But, we all know the best things in life are worth the wait!

10. Fresh Potato Factory

9420 Reseda Blvd # 6, Northridge, CA 91324; Phone: (818) 886-8156


Did someone say potatoes? Mmm… My favorite food group. This restaurant offers a wide variety of options (even for vegetarians), unlimited sauces, and large portions! Count me in.



From Japanese to All-American, the range of food selections in Northridge is endless. What are you waiting for? Start tasting!
