About

Aloha!! Chef Dean was born and raised in Honolulu, Hawaii where he started his culinary career. All chefs dream of having their own restaurant where they can express themselves through their food.
Kama’aina means (Kama) “child” and (aina) “land”, child of the land. “Grindz” is a Hawaiian slang term for “eat”, Let’s go grind means Let’s go eat.

"Kama’aina Grindz” is his interpretation of food that he grew up eating and would like to share with you. Hawaiian food is a melting pot of many cultures and has always been a part of his life and now the Northwest is his home.

Chef Dean will take you on a journey to Hawaii utilizing fresh ingredients, blending Asian influences with a touch of creativity to feed your ever changing palate.

Everett doesn't offer much for quality food, but this is a gem. Must try!

I've eaten at Kama'aina Grindz roughly a half dozen times now and they never disappoint! This visit was in honor of my brother's birthday. I ordered the pork sandwich (essentially a Ban Mi) because I love it so much and have difficulty straying from it; my brother and older nephew ordered the Bento Box which is a nice taster for several of the restaurant's dishes and my younger nephew ordered the evening's chicken special. Everything was amazing and our waitress, though brand-new to the job, was friendly and attentive. The only thing I wish Kama'aina could improve upon is the noise level. When they are filled to capacity, which is frequent (BTW, reservations are highly recommended), you can hardly hear your tablemates in regular conversation. That said, this restaurant is a gem and we're lucky to have such special island fare on the north end!

The only negative to report is the service is always slow -- takes a long time for food to come out of the kitchen. On this visit it took at least 40 minutes from the time we ordered.

A real find in downtown Everett. Fantastic Hawaiian food, beautiful presented. It's a small, noisy place, in a charming space, but the food is great, and the service was excellent!

Excellent and attentive servers. Chef's menu is imaginative and creative. I love the weekly specials. The food is well worth the trip. Mahalo for all the wonderful meals we have had there. The deconstructed turkey medley was brilliant!
