    Have you heard of Hula Pie? They have the most legendary dessert ever since. The restaurant is located right on the beach, perfect for viewing the sunset and chowing down on their delicious fish tacos and poke bowls. If you’re lucky, you’ll even catch live music. I would definitely be turning back here soon with my friends.

    Yesterday, we were in a rush to have a restaurant where we could eat our lunch for it was already late. We came here and ordered food that we were craving. The staff accommodated our order immediately and she showed her kindness to us as it seemed like she's not busy nor tired. We were so glad that we met the staff like her. We appreciate your help and thank you so much for making us full! The food was great!

    This restaurant was top-notch! We had dinner last night, and the waitress was adorable and full of personality. She was attentive, entertaining, and knowledgeable. She is an asset to this restaurant and deserves a lot of kudos. Not to mention, everything was delicious! We will definitely be back soon.

    My mom was visiting for the evening and staying in the neighborhood so we decided to stop at this restaurant for dinner. We were seated immediately and the service was great. Not to mention, the food was delicious. I had the sticky honey garlic butter shrimp, which I highly recommend. I’ll definitely be coming back!

    We came to this restaurant yesterday to celebrate our 20th wedding anniversary. The place was great, the staff was kind, accommodating, and the food was delicious! We will be going back to this restaurant to try their Carbonara because I overheard someone who said that it was great. Anyway, Great experience!

    Yesterday, we went to this Mexican restaurant, and it was fascinating on my behalf. They got plenty of delicious foods and beverages. It was my first time tasting their cuisine, yet it was never a doubt that I happened to taste everything they served in my table. I was astonished by the smiling faces of their waiter and waitress. Perhaps, I would recommend this prestigious restaurant to my friends and workmates. My hands up with their excellence and decency.

    I decided to celebrate my mom's birthday with this Mexican restaurant. I've been here ones, and their foods and beverages taste yummy and better than other restaurants I have visited. The waiters and the waitresses in their shop were very responsible, accommodating, and pleasant. Besides, the place was fascinating. Clean, comfortable to stay in a couple of hours, and stylish.

    You are the best Italian restaurant I've ever known here in our area! Last week, I came here and tasted your bestsellers. I love your dishes because it matched my taste. I thanked your staves for being so speedy in serving my order. You expect me to visit your cozy restaurant again and again! You're strongly recommended!

    • 20. Apr 2020

    Every time we have family gatherings we always went to this American restaurant near our place. The location of the restaurant was so amazing, quiet, and romantic. The serving of the foods was so fast and was very delicious at a very affordable price. And also, the staff was very considerate, polite, and very accommodating. I would highly recommend this restaurant to all of my friends and workmates.

    • 14. Apr 2020

    Tasty and affordable Italian foods are in this restaurant! I didn't expect that the Italian dishes are delicious. I thanked my mother for telling me about your awesome restaurant. Their staff was also very kind and approachable. I am planning to come back here again and again! I am very satisfied with the service and food!

    I like dining in this restaurant because their foods were very delicious and affordable. It feels like you're eating in a 5-star restaurant because of its ambiance of the place. It was so elegant and classy. A perfect place for a fancy dinner date. The waiters were very approachable and accommodating. I will surely visit this restaurant again.

    Kathleen's is one of my favorite places in LA. I found it when I had just relocated from chicago a couple years ago. Kathleen has always been SO welcoming to me. She greets me & my friends with a smile & a hug each time we come in & I feel very at home here. The one dollar mimosas are unbeatable !! & the food (seriously anything on the menu) is delicious always. My favorite are the homemade soups they make each day. For breakfast I recommend the French toast or Chorizo. But again- you can't go wrong with anything on the menu. Kathleen's has become a staple of my life in LA & I couldn't be happier I discovered it. I'd recommend this place to anyone!!

    Pretty good food all around. Wasn't sure about the tacos, but my son said they were pretty close to street tacos. That's a good sign.

    The food was absolutely wonderful, from preparation to presentation, very pleasing. We especially enjoyed the special bar drinks, the cucumber/cilantro infused vodka martini and the K&P Aquarium was great (even took photos so we could try to replicate at home).

    • 02. Apr 2020

    We chose to stay here an hour to enjoy the air conditioning and the convenient space. I just want to say also that, in addition to a nice meal, we had a delightful waitress, Jackie. She had just the right balance of friendliness and efficiency. She recognized that we wanted time to visit and she did not rush us. She and other staff members made certain that we had everything we needed. Great!

    Their sticky rice isn't mushy, the glass noodle salad is spicy, sweet, sour, and savory. Pad See Ew is nice and smokey. Their prices are quite fair in the area. Thai House costs a bit more but flavors are lacking.

    With check in, you can get free thai iced tea, can't say no to that! Cost was a bit costly at about $10.75 after tax but i guess the thai tea made up for it. Definitely coming back still but going to give other items a try and update my post.

    Pictures can speaks alot for itself (sometimes) and while scrolling through pics here thinking if i should try this place out, the picture of the pad thai caught my attention. It looked colorful & saucy! With that, it was enough for me to try it out as many places lack on it.

    • 01. Apr 2020

    I strongly recommend this restaurant to you. All of their foods were delicious and admirable. I couldn't ask for more! This place would be a great place for some family events as well. They strive to provide us the best service that exceeds our expectations. Notable assistance and professional people. Exceptional!
