It's my birthday and I'm looking for a good, cheap place to have dinner with 5-10 friends. I live in Culver City, near Venice. I feel like Thai but understand there aren't any good Thai places on the west side or even any with room for that many people, sooooo I'm open to suggestions. The only things I do not feel like are Italian, Mediterranean, and Mexican (I eat it everyday). Food should be good and cheap (no one has to spend more than $10), and it should be a casual place with room for us. Help!
