Our hotel sent us here for lunch... We thought we had come to the wrong place and waked in twice before we finally got it. This is a Italian / Persian restaurant in Lawndale ( Hawthorn Boulevard) CA. The owner explained to us that there are two kitchens and the food is all prepared from scratch. We opted for a medium deluxe pizza which was excellent. I saw a small salad go by that could easily have been shared... It looked so fresh! Also saw some Persian food and it was plentiful and certainly smelled wonderful . This restaurant is definitely worth visiting, but do be aware that it does not serve alcohol. Nicely busy at mid afternoon and staff very friendly.

Hanks Bistro restaurant was definitely one of the highlights of our US trip. We were able to cherish and end our trip at a high note. The food was excellent and was served readil, upon our request.

The ambiance was amazing and the owners put in a lot of effort to make it look shick.

The service was fantastic. Jameel was able to take our order and help us with everything we wanted. He even threw in some of the drinks and fries at no cost. He explained everything they carried in a very brief and precise manner. We were extremely happy with Jameel's service.

Lastly, the price that was incurred in 6 huge meals was quite measely compared to the same food in other towns. thats definitely one of the biggest positives that we thought could be associated to Hanks Bistro restaurant.

I would definitely recommend any of our muslim brothers and sisters looking for a halal place to try hanks bistro, as that really would make your trip that much more worth.

Where else can you get traditional Persian food along side with Italian? Great people, very friendly, and will help you in selecting if you are a Persian food novice. Delicious, affordable,and huge servings

Hank's Bistro, at 14406 S Hawthorne Blvd in Lawndale CA, not far from LAX, was recommended to our group of six by our hotel staff and we are so glad we went. The owner, Reza, and his staff are welcoming, warm-hearted people whose sole purpose is to make you feel welcome and feed you well. We all had Italian dishes which were absolutely delicious. The portions were so generous that we could have ordered three less meals and still gone home full!! Prices are extremely reasonsable with most dinners ranging around the $12 mark. Truly, this place is a gem; you will not walk away hungry or dissatisfied. Great for families, especially those on a budget.
