Recommendations for Christmas gift card

erichalias | Dec 17, 2011 11:56 AM

Hi all, I'm looking for advice on a Christmas gift.

I want to give my parents a gift card ($20-30) for a Chinese (or general Asian or seafood) restaurant this year. Some background: They're the type that has cheap Chinese takeout almost on a weekly basis. Going out to eat means going to the same cheap sit-down Chinese restaurant we always go to, one that has been shut down twice in the past few years for health violations.

I was thinking PF Changs. I know, I know, many of you will scoff at that. But I'm just hoping to exposed them to a *somewhat* better dining experience than "the usual," but they're really not the fine dining type.

Any recommendations for a Chinese (or any Asian or seafood) restaurant that sells gift cards? Keeping it within the boundaries of Downtown and Santa Monica. Price-wise, after subtracting the $20-30 gift card, I'm looking for a place where the bill would come to about $30 to feed two (including tax and tip, no drinks), or a bill of $60 to feed a family of four.

Thanks for your help! Very much appreciated.
