Komodo is an Asian-fusion restaurant located on Main Street in Venice. Using both international and locally sourced ingredients, this restaurant offers a variety of tastes that cater to nearly any palate. Designed with the help of Ryan Upton and Ana Henton of MASS Architecture, the building's design is a throwback to the days when Komodo was just a food truck satisfying lunchtime cravings.

Guests at Komodo can indulge in a variety of featured dishes, including the Komodo 2.0, the MP3 or the Nasi Goreng, which is also available as vegetarian. Most everyone will enjoy a taco here, which Eater LA describes as one of the LA tacos "to try before you die." Options that are both gluten and dairy free such as the meatballs with romesco sauce let anyone find something to enjoy from the menu. There's also a bar and outdoor area available.

If you’ve tried the Komodo in West Hollywood, you’ll definitely like this one even more. The restaurant is a lot more spacious and the building the restaurant is in has a parking structure (free for 1 hr). A definite plus if you’re going during a busy time - that area of Venice/Santa Monica on Main St. gets really crowded.

The food is tasty.  I wouldn’t say the portions are huge but then again I eat a lot so I might not be the best indicator. The tater tots salad is a must-order – break your diet for this is you have one. The fountain drinks are refillable and you can try a different flavor each time you go up to refill– the lychee one is bomb.
