A truly amazing place to have a good lunch. The Hawaiian bread roll is great. You can have it any way you like. I was L.A. as my ship was berthed in the port. The waiters were very friendly. My family and me had a great time.

The food is just ok not the best Hawaiian food by far but the King's Hawaiian Baked goods are delicious! My families go to place for birthday cakes. The Paradise cake is at the top of our list with the Guava cake coming in at a close 2nd. Go for the baked goods if not anything else.

Nothing disliked, the Hash browns were good and there was a decent variety of Hispanic food. I got some decent pancakes and I usually am not a fan.

My Family and I ate here during a holiday weekend (Sunday morning) and enjoyed a great breakfast. The meal was hot and the portions were generous. We wanted to eat here because we enjoyed breakfast at the King's Hawaiian Restaurant in Torrance at 2808 W. Sepulveda Blvd. The menu at The Local Place is much more limited than the restaurant,...

Hawaiian chicken is a great party dish. It is seasoned and as good as it gets. Where else are you going to find a good and moderately priced Laulau so close to the 405 freeway. If you are hungry, order a plate. Not so hungry, then get a bowl. I enjoy the chicken with macaroni. Skip the chain fast food... More

This restaurant is appropriately named. My sister lives a couple miles from them and I am treated to their food whenever I visit. The food is consistent and is great for lunch and dinner. Don't miss their bakery!

This is a full serve restaurant and bakery. The food is decent, but not my favorite. But if you like sweets this is a great place. They have a huge variety and baked goods if you have a sweet tooth.

Food is reasonably priced and delicious; local Hawaiian and American entrees as well as a full service bakery. Smaller restaurant than the King's Hawaiian on Sepulveda but equally hearty and delicious!!

We were three adults and two children and we hungered for something we remembered from our Honolulu vacation, so we thought we would give The Local Place a try. Although this listing here says it is in Gardena, the little free menu lists their address (same street address) is actually in Torrance. No big deal, of course. We three adults... More
