Mao's Kitchen.: THE BEST CHINESE MEAL IN LA?

Mao's Kitchen, a block behind the broadwalk really does serve up some of the best Chinese food in the LA area.

Mains are priced between $5-9.

My review:
A different side to Venice Beach. Good value, massive portions, great staff who fully appreciate a big tip. The decor is certainly interesting.

Pros: Cheap, Huge portions, Great Chinese! Location off of broadwalk, Staff, Clean.
Cons: None really, apart from being in Venice.

Favorite Dish Try the Chef's specials.
