“A favorite in Santa Monica”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 19, 2011

Whenever I have out of town guests or meeting someone new (including first dates), I take them to Typhoon. The view overlooking the Santa Monica airport runway is impressive. The pan-asian cuisine is excellent and a good value. All this adds up to an unexpectedly different dining experience and fun for the uninitiated.
