Fresh, tasty & healthy food well prepared in a friendly environment. This restaurant is off the beaten track on Main Street. Wonderful views of the ocean and mountains. Closes early at 6:30 pm so it's mostly a lunch/early evening restaurant. Eat in or take out.

Third visit to Sea Monster Noodle House in Tofino did not disappoint in the flavour department. We had Pad Thai with prawns and our friend had a seared tuna rice dish. She always orders the bao bun and this one came loaded with pork.
This unique place is a must on your visit to Tofino but watch the prices. Our 3 lunches, 1 pork bao bun and 2 beer came to $76. I wish the serious girl at front cash had told me how much I was paying to add prawns to my Pad Thai. When I order Pad Thai at my “home” restaurant it is under $12.00 and includes the prawns.
Menu is great, prices a little steep, view of harbour fantastic, front desk young woman was surly.
I will return for the food adventure, watch my ordering and hope for someone friendly at front cash.

I think this is what happens when Asian food is culturally appropriated. I totally get the respect and the love of the Asian noodle and rice bowls, and the decor is eclectic and fun. However, in executing this love for Asian food, the concept becomes a fuzzy stereotyped bland version of nothing specific. For example, steam buns, those lovely dim sum morsels make you think, ok, Chinese food. But then the rice bowls are those ubiquitous poke concoctions which frankly are Hawaiian not Japanese, right? Sczchewan Dan Dan noodles and Thai yellow curry soup. It’s all so confusing. In all honesty, I was a bit excited to try the best of all this, but unfortunately, everything was just bland. The yellow curry needed way more Unami (fish sauce?). My kids had plain noodles, rice, chicken and raw salmon with a side of the salted sweet cucumbers which were neither salty or sweet.
The best part of the meal with the refreshing cucumber mint water.
All in all, disappointing.
$75 for 3 adults and 2 kids.

Very tasty food, very fast service.
Steamed buns were delicious, the tuna in particular.
Nice view from the windows too

Read reviews from TripAdvisor and Toronto Star so went one day. The Dan Dan Noodles was excellent...100% agreed with the reviews. Small menu but it fits our appetite.
