Best Cajun Food in LA Area 4/21/2011

I lived in the south for a few years and loved the Cajun food. I grew up eating crawl fish and very spicy food. The crawl fish ?touff?e at this place is just do die for! It is very flavorful, homey, and has very generous portion (even for the lunch portion!) My friends loved the bread used in the sandwich too. It's way better than the Cajun food down the street. My only complain is that they only serve Beignets on Sunday. I wish they can serve it everyday!!! more

Amazing Mac & Cheese, Exceptional Customer Service, Definite must! 1/4/2009

My cousin, her husband and I went in search for good mac & cheese, and based on reviews we drove out to Hermosa Beach. The macaroni & cheese was amazingly delicious! We even each ordered a serving to go! (Am I glad I ordered more to bring home, because my boyfriend and I are devouring it as I type). We also go the catfish & jumbalaya which was delicious, the crawfish ettoufee which was a little spicy but good comfort food, and the beef tip with garlic mashed potatoes - delicious! The customer service was excellent (other LA restaurants should take note!) and the lady Chef was so hospitable and came over to each of us asking how the food was, and even shook each of our hands on the way out. Will definitely be back! Probably next weekend! Pros: Amazing Mac & Cheese, Exceptional Customer Service,Parking was easy Cons: No Alcoholic drinks more


My husband & I had decided what we were going to order before we left home, and I knew I would try the macaroni & cheese because of the rave reviews. It was ""to die for"", by far the best macaroni cheese I've ever eaten, even better than my mothers. I also ordered the oyster & shrimp po boy sandwich. My husband ordered the jambalaya & catfish and ate part of my macaroni & cheese. We had also planned to have the delicious peach cobbler, but were too stuffed to endulge. Chance, our gracious & attentive waiter suggested we take some home, but we said no. Now here it is 4 hours later, we're home, and I'm wishing for a dish of Cassandra's peach cobbler. Oh well, maybe next time. We're having girlfriend's lunch next Saturday and guess what? We'll be back at New Orleans. Give them a try. Excellent seafood, desserts and exceptional service. more

Cajun is comfort food, service is everything 7/15/2007

We don't eat Cajun often, maybe it's a little to spicy for us. Never had Gator before, but now we are hooked. The atmosphere at this place is lovely, simple, down to earth, casual as we are, bring your own bottle of wine. Even though we're not huge fans of Cajun food we will be going back as often as possible. The service, well, does the fact that we over tipped the waitress on purpose mean anything to you. We were VERY impressed, never felt more at home. Excellent ""homemade"" Peach Cobbler, incredable Mac and Cheese. Well, everything is ""homemade""..... xo, thanx Chef Casandra.... ! Pros: Great food / GREAT service / Very at home feeling more

A bit expensive 3/15/2007

I took my lunch break here on the recommendation from a coworker. As stated in previous reviews, the owner/chef was right there taking my order. She's chatty, personable, quick with a laugh and I liked her immediately. I ordered chicken jambalaya and peach cobbler, no drink. The food was good, I liked it, but it was not worth $25. Don't get me wrong, that doesn't mean I won't go back, it just means I won't be going for a quick lunch anymore. Maybe my husband and I will go for a nice dinner sometime soon. more

The Real Deal 10/21/2006

I thought I would have to go to south central, or ladera heights to find real authentic ""soul"" food. I was dead wrong. This truly is the real deal. I still cannot believe an authentic cajun place is in a nice quaint town like hermosa beach. In a town like this I expect good pizza, good french food, or good american cuisine, but this may just be the best cajun restaurant in LA county. The first reviewer said that the red beans and rice were dry and not spicy. Well, my wife and I got the red beans and rice and we asked them if it was spicy, they said ""no but we can make it spicy"". Problem Solved!!! We got the seafood gumbo spicy and they didnt mess around at all. The seafood gumbo was full of flavor, very fresh ingredients, great seasoning, and tons of good lousiana spice. I mean it was spicy and delicios! This is the only place I have ever been to (I have been everywhere) where the gumbo actually tastes as good as my mothers! Simply Amazing food! I cant wait to go back and order something else. It is a CRIME that this restaurant wasnt featured in los angeles magazine ethnic food review. Pros: Food, Serivce, Ambiance more

Best Mac & Cheese in the world. 8/29/2006

The atmostphere was amazing. Chef Cassandra's meals were created with such ease, like it was second nature for her. The Service was great. It really has that southern hospitality, makes you want to take off your shoes and wiggle your toes! Pros: The Ambience and the service makes up for the lack of parking. Cons: Parking more

The Best Cajun Food in LA! 7/26/2004

I am a SoCal girl raised by a very Southern Woman, if there's two things I know about food, it's BBQ and Cajun. I make it a habit to try every cajun/creole joint in the SoCal area and it never tastes like this joint. Family owned and operated, there is only one chef, and she's a New Orleans native and uses family recipies. The Gumbo is the best I've ever had, the Blackened Chicken (or Catfish) is addictive. Jambalaya, Alligator on a Stick, Hot Sausage Po Boy, Mac n Cheese is to die for! They make their own house salad dressing and Gator romalaude sauce, and the desserts are all homeade. Certian items come over $20, but portions are huge-large Gumbo bowl is big enough for two. I eat there often, and I'm never disappointed! The service is warm and friendly, they always make you feel like you're at home. Pros: Authenticity, Service, Atmoshpere Cons: , Can be Expensive, Gets Crowded more

Fantastic Cajun Food!!!! No Competition 7/26/2004

If you know and like Cajun food, this is it. This place is the place to have real Cajun food. New Orleans Cajun & Creole Cuisine has an exotic menu that is unmatched by any other Cajun restaurant in Southern California. They specialize in Cajun Food not alcohol. If I want Cajun food I will go to New Orleans Cajun & Creole Cuisine. The Gumbo, Jambalaya, Ettouffee and Blacknd Catfish at New Orleans Cajun & Creole Cuisine is unmatched by many other Cajun restaurants in Southern California. Merril Schindler, KLSX radio food-show host rated New Orleans Cajun & Creole Cuisine ""an excellent place to take relatives and friends from out of town"". I did just that and my relatives are still raving about it. Try everything else, then, go to News Orleans Cajun & Creole Cuisine for the real Cajun food. It's Fantastic........ Pros: Authentic, Best Cajun Menu, reasonably prices Cons: , parking more

The BEST! 7/8/2004

Small and cozy...this place has the most amazing HOMEMADE cajun food. The chef and her husband run the place and once they know you, it is like coming home! We had our rehearsal dinner there and our friends/family still rave about the food. You can't go wrong! more

If this isn't , then what is? 7/2/2004

For the simple fact that there is one and only one chef, that alone should prove to any restaurant goer, or better yet anyone who enjoys great food, that this must be real. I dont have the ignorant mentality to come and bash others, or to simply win a poll!! Dude this food is great, try yourself!! Pros: One Creole Queen, great for parties more

Not So Good 6/27/2002

I wasn't impressed. I had the red beans and rice and it was dry and not so spicy. The location/ambiance are nice, and service was great, just wasn't so jazzed about the food. more
