We were HOT, having wandered round down town LA for ages trying to find a nice restaurant. We finished up outside a Starbucks (not to my taste!) and this California HIghway Patrolman pointed to this place.
They served iced tea, and kept filling up your glass.
He had seared fish, which was nice and tasty, I had a burger, because nothing else particularly appealed. As I said above, the fries were very well cooked, maybe twice over, but the jus with his fish was so good he asked for a bread bun, and got one freshly baked
Service was excellent, and the ambience was really quite good considering the restaurant is part of a Doubletree by Hilton hotel
Not particularly expensive, given that it is LA, and we don't eat Chinese, and him indoors declines to try Japanese, so our choice was restricted, but I wouldn't say don't go!
