We eat here often for lunch or dinner. Miso soup, salad. The teriyaki salmon. The California rolls are great. My favorite are the crispy/spicy tuna rolls. It's a great spot for lunch or dinner. It's kid-friendly. The service is superb.

Upon entering Kaido we were greeted and seated immediately and the waiter shared with us the specials of the day. The joy of Sushi is the ability to share several items so we started with roasted peppers which were wonderful. Miso soup came next and...More

Santa Monica
Santa Monica is a coastal town that maintains a
balance as a tourist destination and as an area with a
thriving local culture. On the beach, bikers,
roller-bladers, runners and walkers move along the
famed bike path enjoying the beautiful Los Angeles
weather. The solar-powered Ferris wheel at the Santa
Monica pier spins high above the water, while park
revelers scream with delight riding the roller
