About Us

Discover Starfish Laguna

For almost a decade, Starfish Laguna Beach has been a celebrated and rejoiced Pan Asian concept in our home of South OC.

Locals gather, and friends from across the globe dine with us yearly. Undeniably hip, but approachable and sexy, our vibe transports your senses to the coastlines of Thailand, Vietnam, China, Korea and Japan. Boasting a 90 item menu, with all sharable plates, you will find dishes to suit every palate. Rooted in Asian flavors, we create our elevated street fare, upscale wok classics, and fresh seafood preparations. 

Handcrafted muddled libations, exotic martinis, an innovative wine list, sakes and craft beers complete our carefully curated beverage program.
