We ordered a Thai vegetable parang curry and a crispy Thai fish with ginger sauce which were excellent. The lobster salad roll was terrible, and was really seafood salad. I will go back, but will stick to the Thai menu.

We have always gone to the Sand Trap when we want Thai food and do to want to drive up to Venice Avenue. The food is good but is really is a Sports Bar first, so it can be pretty noisy. The food and service have always been good, but it gets really busy during season, so like all residents,... More

Sand Trap has an extensive menu of both American and Thai cuisine. They have everything from your classic burger to Thai curries and noodles. The service is always friendly and amazing, and the food is delicious! I mainly order from the Thai menu because whatever they make is so good! Highly recommend coming here.

Our favorite Thai restaurant in a sports bar setting. The restaurant is spotless and the staff is very friendly. The food is always fresh and plated nicely. Highly recommend the pad thai.

Where do you go when a new town member says that they want to try something different? Everyone has been to the beach bar/restaurants. 'Not another burger' - please! I remembered that I have always had a delicious, relaxed meal at the Sand Trap. Today did not disappoint. My friend and I sat at the bar and ordered draft beer... More

We are new to the area and picked this spot because it was on the way to another destination. What an interesting place. I don't know too many restaurants where you can order great Thai food, hamburgers, or a taco salad. Our party of three had a grilled chicken salad (good), a hamburger (also good) and Thai fried rice (excellent).... More

It is amazing to get both the Thai and American food under one roof. This is great since I love Thai and my husband loves his hamburgers. My mother has eaten the fish here and said it was the best fish and chips she has ever had.

The restaurant was clean and the staff super friendly and fast. It is sort of a mixed bag as it has a sports bar atmosphere yet serves pub food, American standard and Thai. Interesting combo of foods on the menu. I think that if some of the Food Channel chefs were to give a critique they would say too much... More
