Woodlands, the long-established Southern Indian vegetarian restaurant in Artesia, has opened a branch in Chatsworth on Topanga Canyon just south of Lassen. I must say I have very little experience with Indian food but I checked it out last week and it was very good and the manager Pratik was very friendly and eager to help out with the menu selections.
I had the sweet corn soup which was delicious...pretty spicy and filled with tons of vegetables, it was really more like vegetable soup. Also had another dish which I can't remember the name of but it's mashed up eggplant with peas, green onions and other veggies on top of steamed rice, very tasty.
And good news for those frustrated Simi Valley hounds, the waiter told me they are opening another branch in Simi very soon.
