Very Good Food, Fast Service, Reasonably Priced!

We always go here when we want some good "Nakato" type dinner but not with the prices. We love the Hibachi Steak with mushrooms, carrots, fried rice. I always get an spring roll. Food is very good and is always fresh cooked and hot! Service is so quick. This is a counter restaurant with a... read more

This is our go to restaurant when I want something good, quick and easy. Something's the chicken can be dry. We always stick with steak now. Amazing carrots, I don't even like carrotS! Highly recommend this restaurant for quick and easy option.

I've eaten here many times. I usually order the Salmon Dinner. It is always good. The restaurant is clean. The service is fairly quick. I don't use the drive through because it is really slow. Even when I call ahead to place my order, if there are cars at the drive-thru it is faster to walk inside. I wish they... More

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.

I eat at Koumi Express at least once a week! I get the Hibachi Chicken with Carrots and Fried Rice. The chicken is always very tender, the rice is always perfect and the sweet carrots are awesome!

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.
