For those of you looking for authentic, hawaii-homestyle meals, Happa's is the place to go. Forget about the so-called "Hawaiian BBQ" joints owned by people who know nothing about Hawaii and probably have never been to Hawaii, less cook true Hawaii cuisine. Happa's features some amazing local hawaii favorites including saimin, meat jun, and the fried porkchops....to die for!! I... More

My friends in Gardena told me that this was the closest to authentic Hawaiian local food in the South Bay. Unfortunately, my expectations were not met. I had the sweet sour spareribs. While the ribs were tender, there was no sweet sour taste. My daughter had chicken katsu curry and there wasnt enough curry making her meal too dry. Also,... More

Went to Happas a while ago on a trip and tried the beef stew, short ribs, chicken wings, and poke. Really recommend the poke which is fresh and tasty. But everything that my family and I had was good. Nice friendly environment. If you miss Happa's while down in LA, you're missing good local grindz!

Daily specials change everyday. But love the braised short ribs, and the Hawaiian style tuna poke. Great flavors and good sized portions at reasonable prices. They have recently opened a full bar with karaoke.
