We've been here numerous times & usually do so when showing friends the 3rd St Promenade area - it's so convenient & nicely theme decorated. Food of late disappoints, but we really love true Asian & this is more like the "Tiki Room" fare. If...More

Went to my niece's 40th birthday party and the food was actually awful! We had a private room and it was served buffet style but that was no excuse for tasteless, bland, and yucky food. It can label itself as "pan-Asian", whatever that means, but...More

Stopped in while visiting Santa Monica for happy hour. The martinis were some of the best I've had and the avocado roll and spring rolls didn't disappoint either especially for the price!

Santa Monica is a coastal town that maintains a
balance as a tourist destination and as an area with a
thriving local culture. On the beach, bikers,
roller-bladers, runners and walkers move along the
famed bike path enjoying the beautiful Los Angeles
weather. The solar-powered Ferris wheel at the Santa
Monica pier spins high above the water, while park
revelers scream with delight riding the roller
