The Loft Hawaiian Restaurants (Fall 2007)  
 
"It all started in 1998 with the Loft at Punaluu in the Gardena Plaza Hotel" says Tad Kawasaki, originator of the Loft Hawaiian Restaurants. They soon outgrew this original location, and today, the Loft Hawaiian Restaurants are enjoying tremendous success and has grown into locations at:  
 
1. 23305 Hawthorne Blvd in Torrance,
2. 20157 S. Pioneer in Cerritos,
3. 7862 Warner Ave. in Huntington Beach,
4. 1721 W. Redondo Beach Blvd. in Gardena
5. 5950 Corporate Ave. in Cypress.
 
"Of course, our food is the most important reason for our success, but families and friends and the level of service all work together to make us what we are today" says Tad. "My mom's family owned a restaurant in Aiea, Hawaii, and when we started to turn exclusively to her recipes for our food, business really started to pick up for us" says Tad. "We stayed with that formula for success in all of our restaurants."
     
Along the way, family and friends have also proven to be indispensable to Tad. His brothers Kelly and Greg operate the Orange County restaurants. His wife, Lynn creates all of the colorful and exciting graphic designs. Another key person to the operation from the very beginning is Stacey Masuda, who acts as Banquet Manager and takes care of the Loft's employee related duties. Finally, there is brother-in-law Donald Tong, who acts as the IT Manager and also manages off-site catering. "Couldn't have done it without them" says Tad.
 
Catering for parties up to 400 people is available, an "All You Can Eat" Sunday Brunch (11-2pm) features over 30 delicious Hawaiian food items for you to choose from, and kids get to eat free on Monday when "Keiki night" is held. The most popular dish at the Loft is the Korean BBQ Beef, but a great feature at the Loft gives you the opportunity to "combo" any two items on the menu for your meal. So if you would like to try two Island favorites at one sitting, you're welcome to do so. If you are looking for one of the best Southern California Plate Lunch Restaurants featuring Hawaiian foods of all types, this is definitely the place for you!
 
When asked about the Loft's association with AHTKY, Tad said "I started my relationship with James Hirano a long time ago when I purchased my first home. I have been with your agency since then, through changes in my personal as well as business insurance needs. Why have I stuck with you all these years? Even though you are the largest Japanese American owned insurance agency I know of, I think the service provided is outstanding, and the top management of the company is very accessible." As my Dad would say, "If you want to be a winner, you have to surround yourself with winners!"
