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 that offers ample seating, and an environment in which you can enjoy your meal.

The ordering process is easy, you get to choose your own tacos/burritos/bowl, or a combination thereof. A full meal goes for around $10, and during my visit I tried a combo with 4 different tacos ($12). And THIS is the real highlight of the experience. Each of the tacos I tried had a distinct ingredients, making each bite a very flavorful and unique experience.

So if you are in the Santa Monica/Venice area looking for great and affordable food, Komodo is a great option.

We were visiting from Ohio with our 9 and 11 year old kids and were looking for a quick meal near the beach. Our son wanted Asian and our daughter wanted Mexican. A google search led us to Komodo. We found something for everyone and all was delicious.

My family (wife with two kids aged 10 and 12) visited here in July 2017.

We found Komodo while researching where to eat after biking down the beach from Santa Monica. We knew we wanted something in Venice, and this restaurant kept coming up.

It's a casual but modern and clean restaurant. You order at the cash and they bring the food to your table.

We were not disappointed. The tacos were fantastic! We had to order more before we left, they were so good.

What a find!

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 so many awesome flavors.

Contemporary Cal-Mex-Asian fusion dishes started as a food truck and moved into a brick and mortar restaurant. Whenever we walk from Santa Monica toward Venice on Main Street (they are on the right-hand side) we must stop and have their Asian dumplings. Probably the most reasonably priced meal in all of Santa Monica second to Tender Greens.
