We've been going to Konami for lunch for years. The Bento box lunch is terrific. Whenever we bring guests, they're surprised and delighted. What's not to like? Miso soup, then the box with salad, a few pieces of tempura shrimp and veggies, sticky rice, 4 small California rolls, and chicken, salmon, beef or tofu, with wasabi and pickled ginger-probably the...

We visited Kohnami in the same month (July) last summer. I remember a very pleasant visit; good food; attentive wait staff. We visited again this July. Instead of sitting in the main dining room, because there were three of us we asked to sit in the back room, where the sunken tables are. I looked around and was horrified. I... More

This was the best Japanese food I have had since I traveled to Japan. Very hard to find authentic Japanese and tempura fried correctly! This place hit the mark in every way. Service, atmosphere were great also. The Tofu bento box was amazing and at less than 9 bucks, it is a steal. I will be frequently as much as... More

We always enjoy going to Kohnami. The sushi is consistently good to excellent, especially considering where we're located. They have Sapporo on tap to go with your sushi. The yellowtail appetizer with jalapeños is really good. Prices have gone up in the last year or so but it's still our favorite. Their menu is quite extensive, not just sushi.

We were very pleased with our dinner at Kohnami. Upon entering, we did feel the surroundings seemed old and tired. The interior could use an update. The sushi, however, was very good. Our server was excellent. All of the items we had were very good. The jalapeño stuffed appetizer was outstanding.

Good sushi, decent Japanese fare. Nice ambiance; you can sit at the sushi counter, in private rooms with low tables, or at a table in the dining area. I had a flashlight on a lanyard for other reasons, but it came in handy when reading the menu in the very dim light. Sushi was fresh and tasty as sushi should... More

My husband and I took our 2 boys, celebrating one of my son's birthday and decided to try someplace new. Big mistake. The sushi was expensive like sushi is, but when you pay close to $9 for a sushi roll, you expect each roll to be bigger than a 1 inch diameter in size. They were the smallest sushi I've... More

The menu was quite broad and the food was actually fresh and tasty. In particular, the tempura came piping hot and was on point. They have a broad selection of rolls although I most of their "special" rolls are dominated by soft shell crab. That aside, my overall experience was largely influenced by the conditions of the place. It feels... More
