Diverse Menu. Consistently good.

Great place to go before a movie. Diverse menu with excellent sushi, burgers, Mexican and Thai dishes. Basically, something for everyone. Not too crowded and good service. A little pricey.

My spouse and I decided to lunch at Kona for a quick anniversary mid day treat and were seated right away. The lunch crowd was in full swing and it took a bit for a waiter to come. He immediately put our order in and we asked to swap out the knives that were a bit unclean. The manager came... More

Our first time there and we loved it. The prices were very affordable. We tried several types of sushi, chicken satay and flatbread. Everything was delicious with a good presentation. Our server was very friendly and engaging. We finished with a creme brulee that was incredible. We would definitely recommend.

MSG poisoning and jarred asian sauces do not a Hawai'ian restaurant make..... OK the edamame were ok. Bulgogi beef tacos (2 for the appetizer how do you serve 6?) overwhelmed by plum sauce that obviously came from a jar. Chicken wraps - overwhelmingly salty - I can do better from a kit. "Oriental salad"? - ok but nothing special and... More

Based on what we'd read on TA, we decided to try Kona Grill Oakbrook at about 6:00 on a Tuesday summer night. The place was packed, and we were able to snag the last remaining tiny bar table---as only the bar and patio offered the happy hour deals. We over ordered, plain and simple. The extensive happy hour menu lured... More

Was out celebrating with the family, and went for dinner. Our first time here, and our overall impression was a good one. Late Sunday afternoon and into the evening, what was really nice, was that we were not rushed or felt we had to leave when they come over to the table to check on things. Our server was Nick,...

This is a great place for sushi or macadamia nut chicken or a steak or salmon! We asked them if they could make a salad which could be shared among our group of six. This request was met without any issues. We enjoyed the variety of entrees on the menu. All dishes were very good. Wednesday is half price bottle... More
