We stopped by this Restuarant for an evening snack and ended up with three appetizers. The salmon sushimi was melt in your mouth delicious, the pot stickers were wonderful, and the sunshine roll was superb. Great atmosphere and good friendly service. Great place in Clay Terrace.

Everything about Kona Grill is great! We initially went for sushi because the selection is great. I love their signature Picasso Roll! We happened to be there during 1/2 price happy hour so tried several new things. The smoked gouda fondue with apples and pretzel bites was so good, as were the pot stickers and the Flatbread. And for dessert-... More

Longtime Westside Indianapolis residents and thought it would be fun to head to Carmel for dinner while the kids were at summer camp. The atmosphere is pleasant albeit a bit loud with music blaring even on the patio. Our waitress was indifferent to us as customers. She was not overly friendly, didn't voluntarily tell us the seafood special of the... More

Then, look no further. Kona Grill has great fresh fish and the service is good. We had my elderly mother with us and asked for a quiet table and they were very accommodating. We sat inside but they have a nice outdoor patio that looked like it worked well for families with kids early in the evening. We will definitely... More

This is one of my favorite restaurants in Clay Terrace. It offers a lovely setting (indoor or outdoor seating), wonderful food (I'm a fan of their salads!) and half priced bottles of wine on Wednesdays. Their sushi is great, too!

Over priced. Inattentive servers. Table next to us was sat after us and brought their food long before us, and they ordered the same items. Problems with the sushi....had to send it back. Didn't have any better luck with the grill ....cold fries and the hamburger bun disintegrated. Had to eat it with a fork. We even had the hot... More

The Clay Terrace location is great. I really like the large menu because it seems to have a little bit of everything from sushi to meatloaf. I've been there with just 1 other person to a group of 8 and there's something for everyone. Service has been good and the food quality was very good. I usually end up going... More

This is a Japanese fusion type place, however they have a lot of different dishes, such as jambalaya and pork tenderloins. They also have a large selection of sushi.
