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!

We arrived at around 6:30pm without reservations and although the parking lot was full we were seated in minutes of our arrival in the dining room ( I avoid Hibachi tables as I usually find them to be filled with obnoxious strangers). The... More

My fiancé and I went on a Saturday evening without a reservation and were able to get right in at a hibachi table. Service was great, very entertaining and quick. Prices were reasonable avg $25 for adult and $12 for kids. Dining... More

I hadn't been to Kon Asia in quite a long time, not since my awful experience at the hibachi table. I stopped in for a late lunch at 3 but missed the lunch specials by half an hour. I ordered my favorite--shrimp/vegetable tempura and a bowl of miso soup. The miso soup had little cubes of tofu floating in it... More

We have come here for sushi date nights and it has a wonderful atmosphere, very romantic and exotic looking. I haven't been in the hibatchi grill room, but it looks like that would be fun for a big group and/or for kids. The prices are reasonable and the sushi and sashimi is delicious. You can put together a meal for... More
