If you’re looking for restaurants to try beyond the familiar chains, pizza, and burger joints, try out these delicious flavors. A couple of the restaurants that made the list are Findlay staples, but some you likely haven’t encountered. As a plus, many of these restaurants have a fairly large selection of Vegetarian options. So, this weekend, take your taste buds on a trip around the world.

406 South Main Street
Opened in 1994, Japan West has become a well-reputed Findlay staple. If you’re in the mood for sushi or other authentic Japanese cuisine, Japan West is the place to go. Reviews of the restaurant are extremely positive, and they have a reputation for having the freshest sushi fish in Ohio, rivaling what you’ll find in Columbus.
Punjabi Kitchen is Findlay’s token Indian restaurant. If you haven’t encountered Indian food before, this is a must-try. If you’re unsure about what to order, try an order of naan (flatbread) and a curry (vegetarian, chicken, lamb, or seafood)–Chicken Tikka Masala is a popular option. And if you go during lunch, they have a pretty fantastic buffet.
Established in 2010, Cedar Valley Cafe is one of the more unique eating experiences in Findlay. It’s the place to go if you want to try Lebanese food. If you’re with a group of people, try one of the party options–it will give you a good sampling of the major Cedar Valley flavors. If you’re there at lunch time, a sandwich is always good option–particularly the gyros and chicken shawarma.
There are several Mexican restaurants in Findlay, but I believe (and have heard from several sources) that Casa Fiesta is often considered a favorite. If you’re in the mood for excellent service, a fun and family friendly atmosphere, and some pretty great Mexican food, Casa Fiesta is the place to go.
Note: Thai House will be temporarily closed until April 25, 2016.
Along with Jack & Jin’s on Trenton and Main, Thai House will take care of your Thai food craving. It’s a tiny restaurant, but definitely stop by if you’re a small party or wanting take-out. Pad Thai and Pad See Ew are generally popular options if you’re unfamiliar with Thai food.
