THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Yangtze Restaurant Review

: How to choose from among the prolific sidewalk cafés along Santa Monica's Third Street Promenade? If your taste turns toward the exotic, you might steer into Yangtze for a quick bite. This minimalist café offers courteous service and a mixture of Thai and Chinese cuisine. The lengthy menu, divided into bizarre yet amusing categories such as tributes to the River Goddess, is extremely flexible and all dishes can be made vegetarian, with or without tofu. Specialties include stir-fries and Thai curries, and although the selections are predictable, the produce is fresh and never overcooked. For local residents, the restaurant offers free delivery. There is also a strange, dark and crowded sushi bar at the back of the restaurant, but we recommend sticking with the airy, hybrid-Asian café at the front.
