OC Weekly's Description
All of what you've come to expect from a mainland Hawaiian dive is
here: the fat Spam musubi, the Izzy on the soundtrack, the artwork of luaus
and leis. But where Da Luau excels is in the items that, while Hawaiian
faves, don't always pop up in local restaurants. The mochiko chicken defies
the laws of physics; it's deep-fried in a sweet batter, but the resulting
shell seems to hover around the soy-soaked hen, like the hide of a baseball.
This results in nuggets that retain two distinct flavors that meld with
every gnaw and emit steam like a chugging locomotive.
Tips from foursquare
Poke salad with avocado & chips is amazing!
The place is very clean and the staff is quite friendly! Tasty food... would visit again!
Food is cooked to order. Fresh and delicious. Generous portions. Service with a smile. Makes repeat customers feel like family.
Phone in your order first. Slow service.
The only Hawaiian BBQ place I found in SoCal that serves Meat Jun... The first thing I always get when I fly home to Hawaii
