I just had a bento box and it was tasty. Portion size wasn't huge but it was ok. Met a friend for lunch there. I wouldn't go back but there really isn't anything wrong with the place. Server was good and didn't bother us.

Santa Monica
Santa Monica is a coastal town that maintains a
balance as a tourist destination and as an area with a
thriving local culture. On the beach, bikers,
roller-bladers, runners and walkers move along the
famed bike path enjoying the beautiful Los Angeles
weather. The solar-powered Ferris wheel at the Santa
Monica pier spins high above the water, while park
revelers scream with delight riding the roller
