Chinese or Thai near Marina del Rey?

I'm looking for a good Chinese or Thai restaurant in the Marina, Venice, Santa Monica area. I haven't found any yet. Can anyone reccomend one? Thanks!

  1. Where have you tried so far? My boyfriend and I like Siamese Garden on Washington, tucked right next to the Cantina. Their food tends to be a little sweet overall, and the spiciness changes on the whim of the cook, but it always cures the craving and if it's a nice evening it's great to sit outside in the garden. Try the tom ka gai soup, I get it everytime.

    Good luck on the Chinese. I have yet to find some good East Coast style take-out in LA.

    1. Although it's actually in Venice, Pam's Place has great Thai food, although the service can be a test in patience. Call ahead and take it home.

      1. We like Typhoon and I know people won't like this - but PF Chang's also. We prefer healthy (less grease and oil) cooking. I also liked Mao's Kitchen, but too small and stuffy for my boyfriend.

        1. don't know if these are close enough to the marina for you, but here goes:
          for thai,
          ayara thai cuisine just east of sepulveda and south of manchester
          thai boom on venice blvd and midvale, west of overland.

          1. I agree with Pinotgrisgirl on Pam's Place for 90291/90292, and have been hearing alot of praise lately for Thai Boom as Westsidegirl mentioned. As for the group of Thai restaurants on Lincoln, they are marginal, but if all you want are decent curries, then you might be okay.
