Monsoon Cafe5 star(s)

 This is a ultimate Asian experience. The decor is right out of Bali travel guide with lots of bamboo & authentic artifacts from Southeast Asia. The Sushi bar is manned by the Executive chef from Japan and the quality and the flavor shows the care. The rest of the menu is mish mash of Korean, Chinese, Thai, Vietnamese, Indonesian and it seems like very country in Asia is represented. The flavors are distict and quality is unmatched. But my favorite part is the Live music they offer in their upstairs lounge Wednesday thru Sunday. The caliber of bands they bring in is amazing, from 10piece salsa band from Cuba to R&B diva and to great Jazz quartet. I think this place is one of the hidden treasures in Santa Monica shore.
