“Good Food/Service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2012

We ate at Kono for supper and the food was really good. The chef was entertaining, including our kids in the fun.
The server was great and friendly.
We didn't have to wait long to be seated and the portions were definitely enough!
Will make sure I eat here again when returning to Myrtle Beach!

“Great dinner”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2012

The hibachi cook was really entertaining and made the whole experience worth it. The food was good and a very good sized portion.

“worst place I've eaten”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2012

We came for dinner and it started off bad, they were unorganized and we had to wait.When we got to the table we sat at one that was supposed to fit 3 people but there was 5 of us. For 30mins we sat there waiting for someone to recognize us. No one came over to us not the first time. Finally a manager stopped to ask if we had been waited on. He just walked away and we didn't see him again. We ended up getting waited on by the bartender.The service was inexusable and when we finally got our food the filet mignon I ordered was obviously a different type of steak, because almost every piece had fat on it. Also the salad's were drenched in the dressing. I am not extremely picky so when I say something most of the time it is pretty bad. Also the chicken had a watery funny taste. The only time the waitress/bartender came was to give us our food, no is everything ok? And not once did she refill our cups. Also the table beside us, all of the waiters were putting the plates on them like it was the bus table or something. Everything was just bad, and things were filthy. And things were over priced.Never eating there again.

We go there each time we visit and have a great time. Drink service was a bit slow, but food was amazing and you get so much. Great price!

“Nothing is good at Kono”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2012

When I came in for lunch, I don't get a good greeting. The sushi server doesn't speak english very well. One female server is not friendly to me. This is the worst visit I ever have.
