Cassia is a terrific Asian restaurant in Santa Monica. The flavors just burst with life. It's like I'm eating fine dining in Southeast Asia. I drove 20 miles from the Eastside to try this place and it didn't disappoint. The ambiance is spectacular, with a gorgeous bar. Great people watching. The dishes are creative, my favorites being the Chickpea Curry, the Mizuno salad, and the Cod. The desserts are spectacular, especially the Tangerine pudding. Everything about this place is wonderful. I'll be making the trek from Silver Lake again soon!
