Buddha’s belly makes exquisite eastern cuisine accessible to the working crowd, providing unique, carefully planned dishes without charging you into a second mortgage. The clean, modern and slightly upscale atmosphere hints at exorbitant prices, which thankfully don’t make an appearance on the menu. Exotic entrees include oriental-themed steaks, seafood and salads, as well as creative appetizers and affordable drinks. That, combined with the genuine, friendly service, creates a singular dining experience you can’t find much of in LA. Go with the ahi tuna burger (with sweet potato fries) and have a lychee martini while you’re waiting.

The haiku version:

Fine eastern cuisine
But still south of your budget
Asian with a ‘tude
