Walked into this place randomly on the Main St of Santa Monica and was pleasantly surprised by the taste of the tacos. The sweet corn was also fantastic! Great location near the beach and the rest of Santa Monica Main St too!

Located on Main St, just a couple of blocks away from Venice/Santa Monica you will find Komodo. Even though the restaurant is near tourist areas, it is not crowded by tourists. When you first walk into the restaurant you will see a large open space...More

Okay, the pho-rrito is pretty delicious. I do agree with the reviews that say the essence of pho is in the broth but it's still super yummy in burrito form. That said, the tacos we got were even more amazing. Such a great variety and...More

This restaurant sports a decor of clean lines, typical of Far Eastern design. It smells so delicious the moment you walk in. It's very efficiently run. I had Asian tacos and corn on the cob with a semi spicy topping. The cob was from the...More

Venice has always danced to its own beat as the
epicenter of bohemian culture in Los Angeles. Along
the boardwalk there are street performers and local
craftsmen selling their wares. Original paintings,
souvenirs, and jewelry are on display. Crowds of
visitors marvel at the sites while weightlifting
enthusiasts pump iron in plain view, and skateboarders
do their tricks around the skate park. All of it
