I haven’t been here for a year due to COVID and finally they are open for in door at 15% capacity. First, reservations is required to eat inside. We arrived 30 min early on a Sunday afternoon in April and they allowed us to be seated early. Each dining section has 1-2 groups and sectioned by plexi glass. The counter is now pick up food. Our waiter was great in service and friendly. We got free rolls with butter. I ordered chicken katsu plate and the wait wasn’t too long. The katsu was crispy and taste good dipped in the sauce. The highlight was their potato macaroni salad which hit the spot. I also got dessert of a slice paradise cake which was the best. Our waiter was great on refills too. Overall, it was so nice to eat inside.

I love the changes the restaurant made to accommodate social distancing. The food and service was the same high standard as it was before the pandemic. I wish they would fix the booths so when I sit down, I don’t sink so low that
I’m way too low to be comfortable at the table.

Finally was able to try this spot when I was in the area with my husband. We missed Hawaiian food from our trip a few years ago and was excited to come here. Friendly servers in the restaurant and in the bakery. Food was great. The Hawaiian rolls in the beginning really got us excited. Definitely would come here again!

Because of the wuhan, have to use this app to eat in. Quite dine in. Been here for many years. Get Hawaiian style pastries before or on the way out the door. Great service and good food. Plenty of parking.

Everything was fantastic (except for the wine - you need to go back to the Chardonnay you used to sell, so we can buy it buy the bottle and so it tastes good)

Our server Ian was fantastic and the General Manager, Nelson came by and he was very nice and gave us some updated info.

King's Hawaiian sells itself. I got my katsu chicken plate fix and spam musubi and finished it off with a slide of Dobash. You can't go wrong with that. I look forward to having the oxtail soup on my next visit and a slice or two of Dobash and maybe the bread pudding.

It was great! They followed health department guidelines, wiped the tables well after guests finished and left, everyone wore masks, socially distanced, guests were seated away from one another, servers were very nice & gracious, service excellent! We also bought food to go, everyone & the manager were awesome, the bakery servers were great! Love this place!!
