I’ve lost count of the number of times that my husband and I have eaten at Kings, often with family. It was a favorite when we lived in LA, and we go back at least once on every trip back to the South Bay area.
The restaurant is nothing fancy, but is the epitome of a great family restaurant with great food SoCal Hawaiian style. We’ve eaten both breakfast and lunch here many, many times, and every family celebration for many years included at least one of their wonderful Paradise cakes – light and delicious.
Favorite meals include the Big Island Breakfast (French toast, two eggs, a choice of breakfast meat (linguica and spam are options)), the breakfast burrito, pancakes with coconut syrup, Chinese chicken salad, BBQ chicken salad, and the spam musabi (like spam sushi)/saimen (noodle soup) combination. And I love the Kalua pork nachos – smoky Kalua pork, black beans, and jack cheese, served with guacamole and a pineapple chutney.
Service can be a bit slow (the reason for a 4 rather than a 5 rating), but that does not deter us. I’d recommend both the restaurant and the bakery to anyone; the menu is huge and the bakery offerings extensive (and tempting!). And don’t forget the Kings Hawaiian sweet rolls!
