I've been coming here for ten years. Great food with fast and friendly service. Haven't had anything I didn't like. The grilled salmon is my favorite!

Absolutely love this place. I enjoy the Hibachi Chicken with Soba noodles. The carrots are so good. The prices are good and the staff is friendly. My family eats there at least once a week. You will not be disappointed.

The food is excellent and the prices are fair. It's considered a "fast food" restaurant but you can enjoy a "sit down" meal indoors anytime. The service is great and the staff are always friendly. This is our go to when we're craving Japanese but don't want the round table experience.

The prices have went up and they do not offer a kids meal with chicken or steak. Only I think stuff like chicken tenders or something off the wall for their type of atomosphere. We used to love it, but now not so much.

The food was good a little dry but nothing their fantastic shrimp sauce couldn't fix. It was a little on the pricey side for a family of 5 but a good value anyway :)

The staff was friendly and efficient. The teriyaki chicken and steak was excellent and the spring rolls were perfectly done. I will be in Monroe for 5 more days and will be going here again.

I have loved Koumi's food for years now. I went one day after school with two of my friends. They were super rude and told me it was my fault the meal didn't come the way I wanted it to. I apologized but they were still very rude and not helpful. I will not go back even though I love... More

This is one of my favorite places that I frequent often. The staff is very friendly, the food tastes great and the prices are very reasonable. They even have a drive through window which is well served.
