We found this restaurant on tripadvisor when staying in LA for a few days, walked from our hotel and joined the queue. When you join a queue to spend money, you assume the food will be good. We were not disappointed. It was a Saturday night, full of mannerly, well behaved people, mainly in their 20s/30s. Yes a bit like school dinners ordering through a hatch, but this added to the whole ambience and yes it was difficult to find a seat, however for $30 total (£21) this is a place to go. Bear in mind, you've to take your own alcohol, which regretfully we didn't.

We tried this place for a meal that reflected the multiethnic nature of Santa Monica. It was a reasonable meal. We had expected what we chose to be a bit spicier but that didnt really detract too much. Service was good although abit hard initially to work out how to go about ordering ... but we got there and enjoyed our meal.

Relaxing atmosphere that blends right in with a day at the coast. Food was delicious. Bring your own drinks - even alcohol- is permitted. Very casual.

Stopped here after watching the sunset at Santa Monica Pier. Got the mole chicken which was very good and was served in about 2 or 3 minutes. Nice atmosphere right off the street. They don't sell alcohol but have a BYOB policy.
