Zab Zab

Reviewed By Thunderbird12

This small restaurant has a variety of the Thai dishes one would expect but some interesting variations. We tried the "Gulf of Siam" seafood dish---kind of a Thai bouillabaisse with the necessary spicy kick. Delicious. The Tom Yon soup, at even the medium spiciness level left our lips pleasantly burning. A great find in Monterey.

Sapporo Japanese Steakhouse

Reviewed By KimGTravels

Our family has enjoyed numerous birthday celebrations throughout the years at Sapporo, both inside the main dining room as well as in the festive Hibachi Room. While dining at a table, typically sharing seating with more than your party, Hibachi prepared food is a culinary and artistic experience where the Chef prepares your meals on a hot griddle, which is an extension of the table. Entertaining, artful food preparation, humor, tricks and explosive fires will delight and amaze all eagerly watching, resulting in laughter, camaraderie and a memorable, festive dining experience. If it is your birthday celebration, you will be serenaded by the staff, much to your embarrassment or delight. This is a fun adventure and the delicious resulting meal makes this a must do! Try to gaze up from the table to appreciate the marvelous views of the Harbor and Monterey Bay.

This is a hole in the wall restaurant with modest front entrance and decor. However, the food is authentic Cantonese style and excellent! Owner's wife is very outgoing and will do anything to satisfy customer's taste. Wide variety of dishes available. Do not pass up this opportunity

Noodles Bar

Reviewed By Alice J

When we visit Vietnamese restaurants, my husband orders the pho. He is very discerning about his soup and loved the pho at this restaurant. I usally order the spring rolls, which were a bit under par, but okay, The full restaurant attests to the popularity of the place. Marina is becoming a hot spot for reasonably priced restaurants with dishes from far flung locales.

We had good sushi & service walking distance to our hotel. We weren’t starving so found this place out of convenience thru Trip Advisor.Food & service was good, 5 min wait. Lacked decor as 1 un-inspired room but satisfied what we needed, just a light dinner.

phone: 831-899-2622. This is the absolute BEST restaurant in seaside!! It is always packed with locals from the monterey bay area. The highest priced item on the menu is $6.50. It has the best pho, lemongrass chicken, and five spiced chicken I have ever h

Reviewed By 4THStooge

The address is incorrect. The restaurant is near the Korean restaurant. The food was very good and plentiful. The only complaint other than TripAdvisor posting the wrong address, it was in the fifties the night we went and they insisted on keeping the front door wide open. We had to move and still eat with our coats on.

Baan Thai Restaurant

Reviewed By McSeagull

Because Zab Zab was closed and we weren't in the mood for cooking, we decided to branch out with a DoorDash order to Baan Thai.We ordered what we usually get from Zab Zab as a baseline comparison, but ended up disappointed. Both the sweet and sour chicken and tom yum soup were over seasoned with fish sauce. The panang curry was good and portions were plentiful, but will stick with Zab Zab to avoid the overpowering fishiness.

Sushi Time

Reviewed By campari-orange

Sushi Time used to be one of our “go to” locations for a satisfying meal at lunch or dinner. This is no longer the case. Since the owners opened up another restaurant in town they seem to be no longer paying attention to Sushi Time. Service, which was always brisk but professional, is now horrible. The cashier’s attitude is invariably nasty. Who needs that when going out for what should be a pleasant experience?They’ve also switched seafood suppliers and quality has taken a nosedive. Sushi used to be consistently fresh and delicious. Now I’ve gotten several orders at Sushi Time with fish that looks and smells old. I’ve ordered Teriyaki that arrived with an “off” taste and rice that was over cooked. No thanks. I’d suggest Harumi or Crystal Fish for those who are looking for a fresh and healthy meal. Sushi Time is now off our list for good.
