Paradise Delight

This is one of the best cakes made. It is the perfect amount of sweetness. Not too sweet, just right. Super moist and fluffy. I get this cake every year on my birthday. On my way right now today. Happy Birthday to me. Thank you Local Place for making my birthday even more special. My brother, who does not like sweets or cakes, absolutely loves this cake. I introduced it to him last year and he can not get enough of it. You will not be disappointed. Local Place has a customer for life. Been going here for over 10 years now.

Mochi Donuts

I love Mochi Donuts! There are so many flavors to choose from, and each one tastes sooooo good 🍩 I tried Butterfly Dipped Pie, too. My daughter liked its shape of harts and begged me to buy. The chocolate tastes like real chocolate, not just brown colored icing. And it's big!!! Line was long, but the wait time was less than 10 minutes, and once you get inside of the restaurant, you see the huge show case full of goodies like heaven and forget about time Thank you King's Hawaiian 🌺 You made our Sunday afternoon so special 😄

Loco Moco

I love the Loco Moco from The Local Place. It's so tasty and fresh. I've had Loco Moco at other places and it doesn't compare to the Loco Moco here. The patties are a great size, nice rice portion and the gravy is delicious. I highly recommend it.

Teriyaki Chicken Sandwich

The food here is always tasty. From the teriyaki chicken sandwich to the salads, and you cannot and I mean cannot forget their bakery items. It's not just the food that is fantastic, it's also the employees. They are always friendly, even when things are crazy busy there. I say your next meal should come from here. Go now! Those bakery items go fast.

Fried Noodles

It's hard for me to order anything else because the fried saimin with vegetables is soooo good! We live over 70 miles away, so coming here is a treat and there's nowhere near us that makes this dish. That plus a sliced of the Haupia or Paradise cake is the perfect meal.

Peach Bavarian

I love, love the cakes and pies at King's Hawaiian, but the Peach Bavarian is my guilty sin. When I have friends visit me from out of state. We go to King's Hawaiian for a taste of Paradise.

Paradise Delight

Never miss the opportunity to try this delicious, light and fluffy(did I mention"yummy") desert cake, it looks and tastes divine or try the parfait cup which is perfect for a smaller portion but packed full of flavor!

Islander Tuna Sandwich

The sound of crisp lettuce and fresh tomato in every bite of a seasoned tuna in a sweet and soft hawaiian bread...that's how I will describe the Islander Tuna Sandwich. I tried it for the first time on 5/26/20 and it was delicious! Presentation was good and clean. I also loved that it was served warm. Will be going back today to get some more! Mahalo!

Lau Lau, Kalua Pork, Lomi Salmon

I usually go to the Torrance place for dinner after Red Cross platelets donation but I start going to the Local Place in Gardena to pick up the take-outs because of COVID-19 and it is closer to me. The food quality of both places are good and consistent I have to cut down on the bakeries due to my age that I have to watch out my blood sugar. To resist the temptation of their bakeries is hard!

Mochi donuts were scrumptious! I prefer those to regular donuts which are too sweet.

Love, love this cake! A friend brought it up to a party in San Francisco and I fell in love. I am making a tradition of picking one up when I drive home from Palm a Springs to San Francisco. The first time was last year and more recently, yesterday! It will be a time honored tradition!
