Buddha's Belly is one of the best in Santa Monica when you want to take your friends for a pleasant atmosphere and really good food, the Garlic fried rice with shrimp and Albacore and Avocado spring roll are my favorites

Pros: Food, Decor

Cons: Can get busy for dinner, even on weeknights

i love this place so! The food is delicious, the bar staff super friendly and their infused sparkling tea drinks are great! I die for the shishito peppers and the garlic fried rice. Great lunch and dinner spot. I could eat here every night.
