The Bagkok duck rolls were great as a starter. Menu is varied and lots of combinations can be done under meats & vegetables menu where one can choose the meat type. Portions are filling and delicate with matching sauces. Wine prices are moderate 30-40 dollars...More

I was impressed by the room when I first stepped inside. It felt comfortable, inviting. Greeted warmly. Ordered a yellow curry with a Singha beer. Love Thai food. I was not disappointed. Nice experience.

Service was very attentive and the decor is nice. Food is okay. Next time we will order some of the specials. Pho was disappointing with the noodles overlooked but the other dishes were okay

Amidst lots of expensive restaurants, this was reasonable (also next to Goodwill in Santa Monica) There were seven of us on short notice. Food was good! Service was friendly. A little busy that night, but just one plate was cold (mine!). Aside from this slip,...More

Santa Monica
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
