Been there a few times, the food cant be beat. They have some fun takes on regular asian foods. Its a mix of Korean, Chinese, Japanese, etc and it always tastes great. Cant go wrong with anything here.
Prices are medium high, but worth it. Service is the usual younger crowd of energetic hipsters. Very good service considering how busy this place is.
I like to take out of towners here and then walk to the pier and 3rd street to people watch. I have seen celebritys around here and its always fun.
Overall the food cant be beat and its a fun place.

I've been here a couple of times, once for lunch and once for dinner, and both times the food was great! I got the pad thai and it tasted flavorful yet light and fresh, without the greasiness you sometimes find at other restaurants. I also got the korean steak, which was very well flavored and cooked, and it was also a good cut of meat. The decor of the place is also nice, casual yet still well decorated. For the quality of the food, proximity to the beach and 3rd street promenade, this place is a great value. Be ware though, I came with two other people at 6:45pm for dinner on a Monday night, and had to wait 15-20min for seating.

this Buddha's Belly is just as good as the original on Beverly Blvd - only they have a full bar! There's no patio or private room, but a bigger dining room. Their kitchen is not behind the counter, but you can still see the cooks making your food through a giant glass window next to the bar.
My wife and I were here the other night and she loved their Tofu Lettuce Cups and I had the Black Cod, which is always amazing.
Our server was also great - really knew the menu and very friendly.
