It is beyond sad to see this restaurant closing. Entirely due to the crazy Santa Monica City Council. This was a haven to pilots, like me and others from far afield. The owners really 'plugged' this venue into the community and hearts and minds of...More

We were at an art show close by and stumbled upon this fun restaurant. Here is what we ordered- lettuce wraps, dumplings, pad Thai, Mongolian beef and pineapple rice. All delicious! I do recommend a better wine list and more ambiance. It's a tad boring.

I looked up this restaurant and discovered that it has some bizarre and delicious foods. I had frog lega, cricket, and scorpions. Loved every minute of it.

Really rate this place. Friends took us. Lovely atmosphere with great food, a really good menu and you can watch small planes land and take off as it has large windows overlooking the small Santa Monica airport. We ate excellent food here.

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
