The pork gyoza was a little soggy and should have been pan fried a while longer. The sweet potato tempura was really good. The waitress we had was really friendly and... More

I was at the Kon Asian Bistro on Friday the 13th of September. It was my second time. First the wait staff is exceptional, the food was ok but not remarkable. The thing that put a bad taste in my mouth was this. There were 4 in my party. My wife and our friend split an appetizer of ground chicken... More

I was not expecting much, but this place is good. I don't like Asian fusion, but since I could not find a good sushi place around, we went here. Service is good, and the food is tasty.

Food was pretty good and the decor is upscale for your typical Asian Resturant. They also have a special glassed in area for Benihana type grill cooking.

Convenient location off I-95 Larabee Road exit in Portland. After travelling north for 4 hours on our way to our friend's home in Maine, we enjoy stopping in for some fresh sashimi and tasty rolls. Sushi chefs and staff are friendly, and the service is courteous and fast. The food is very good and reasonably priced. Restaurant and facilities are... More

$3.50 select rolls and drink specials and even better was great customer service from the bartender! I could do without the customers sucking face next to me, but I was in and out quickly so I tried to ignore them. The bartender was great with making sure my food came out quick since I could not stay. Good job!
