  1. Tuk tuk thai is just east a mile or so on Pico. Good westside Thai food.

    Menu available here:

    1. You've got three choices -- stay on Pico (they've got a great burger at Apple Pan), go north a bit on Westwood and get middle eastern food (Sunnin, Sheherazaad, etc.), or go south down to Culver City for a wide variety of options (Ford's Filling Station, Fraiche, Gaby's, Annapurna, Sabor de Mexico, etc.)

        And in case the OP happens to be a fan of sushi then they are in luck, as one of the three best sushi places in all of LA is close to Pico and Motor: Sushi Zo

        Sushi Zo
        9824 National Blvd Unit C
        Los Angeles, CA 90034

      2. Other places you're very close to include John O'Groats for breakfast and lunch and for higher end, Craft in Century City.

        1. On Westwood, there's also Junior's Deli, Shamshiri, Feast from the East, Cal Chicken Cafe

            And Eduardo's, where I used to eat *all the time* when I worked at Fox.

            1. re: Debbie W

              Oh yes. Eduardo's, great charbroiled chicken and salsa.

          2. Pico & Motor - sounds like 20th Century Fox to me. All of the below could be driven to in approx. 10 minutes or less "IF" there was no traffic (but of course there will be).

            Turning North on Beverwill up to Olympic, right on Olympic for:

            Cafe Telasi - Thai - 9198 Olympic Blvd. (at Oakhurst Dr.).

            Staying on Beverwil past Olympic which turns into Beverly Dr. for:

            Sushi Sushi - 326 1/2, So. Beverly Dr., (310) 277-1165

            Frida - High-End Mexican - 236 So. Beverly Dr.

            Mako - Asain/French - 225 So. Beverly Dr.

            On Motor till National turn right for affordable ethnic:

            Indo Cafe - Indonesian - 10428 1/2 National Blvd., (310) 815-1290

            Hu's Szechwan - Chinese - 10450 National Blvd.

            On Pico then right (North) on Westwood Blvd:

            Pastina - Italian - 2260 Westwood Blvd., (310) 441-4665
            Reasonably priced Italian

            Keep going North for;

            Persian food (6 locations, all on right side of street).

            Ambala Dhaba - Indian - 1781 Westwood Blvd., (310) 966-1772

            Delphi - Greek - 1383 Westwood Blvd., (310) 478-2900

            On Ave of the Stars - takes you into Century City for not much ethnic food worth trying.
