I'm a UCSB student newly moved to Santa Barbara (Goleta actually) and was wondering what there is to eat in the area. What's good?
I'm into pretty much everything, and am really just looking for general recs and can't miss places, but I have two specific questions, too. What fine dining is available and worthwhile, especially wine and tasting menu wise? And what good thai, middle eastern, vietnamese, and indian places are around, even more so if they're cheap?
I'm curious as to whether anything in Goleta is worthwhile as well.
Thanks for any help, I really love these boards.
