I'm surprised at some of these bad reviews. This is one of our favorite places to go. We may bring the kids or not but they always remember us and they are so great with the kids when cooking our meals and theirs! The Chefs...are talented and strive to get everything exactly how you want it. They welcome your opinion on how was it cooked. For example they ask " how was it this time as compared to last time"? Where else do you get that? The steak, chicken and shrimp is cooked perfectly every time and the filet I switched to last time was even better!! I don't want to change my order because it's all so good but I want to move on to other things on the menu just to try them!! The waitresses are nice and very helpful when ordering. I don't like sushi but my son gets it everytime and not one complaint yet so I can only say it must be great. We love the Misu soup that starts the meal. My granddaughter (6 yrs old) would eat hers mine and her Dad's if we let her. I can't think of a single thing negative to say about this place. Since the first time I went I was hooked. It's so much fun (especially watching the kids) and the food is so good I always leave feeling better than when I got there!More

Husband and I ate there for dinner a couple of weeks ago. I had the chicken and shrimp habachi. It was ok, but the chicken was a little dry and the yum yum sauce was like water. We also had a glass of Cabernet, but...I could not drink all of it because it tasted so bad. We will stick with Mizu.More

This was the worst hibachi food I’ve ever had. Spent 35+ For 3 burnt scallops, over cooked shrimp and chicken floating around in 3 full cups of brown juice! Veggies apparently not cooked fresh! Soggy! Just horrible food! I thought it was because it was...after 8 but called the manager TERRY and he said. he’d remake it!! He didn’t even come out to acknowledge me and the replacement meal was just as bad!! I will NEVER WASTE MY HARD EARNED MONEY HERE AGAIN!! Straight GARBAGE!! Just close down!! BUT THE DRINKS WERE GOOD!! Just open a bar! LolMore

The first thing that hit me was the hibachi and sushi/table side are completely separate so you don't get the noise of the hibachi or the constant reek of bitter garlic hitting the grill. That was very welcome even though the tables were close enough...together to be borderline cramped. Decor is upscale without kitsch everywhere but the atmosphere is relaxed and casual. Food choices are nicely varied and not just the same stuff every other Japanese restaurant offers. The sushi/sashimi plate was huge for the price. The soup is not the standard miso or onion, it is a lovely beef stock base with a hint of onion and ginger, served with tempura crumbles (they soak up the broth quickly but are still a pleasant texture). Very impressed with the soup. The salad is the usual iceberg lettuce but the ginger dressing is smooth and creamy with a ginger bite instead of grainy globs like is served at far too many places. My only real gripe was they seem to go heavy on the sesame oil in several dishes, giving a bitter bite where it shouldn't be and a lingering aftertaste. Then again, I really don't like sesame oil so take that for what it is worth.More

Grandchildren wanted Japanese close to their Roebuck Springs home and we picked this one. Made reservations for 7 at 7 and lobby was crowded but we were seated after short wait. Great meal and fun for family. Ordered lots of sushi and appetizers and the...normal flat top Japanese meals. Soup and salad were bests I have ever had and meal was delightful. And of course youngsters had to have fried ice cream. Great place for special meals and tables can seat up to 10 or soMore

We enjoyed our meal, however it was not 4 or 5 star Japanese. The tempura was well prepared but the sauce had little taste. I doubt it had any saki in it. The noodle dish was fair but we have had much better. I was...surprised after reading all the great reviews. The service was good and perhaps the sushi and hibachi food was the star. There were lots of people in line as we left so guess others like the place!More

Had dinner here on Saturday night. Got a table quickly. The service was fantastic and the soup was the best I have had at a hibachi type restaurant. The food was good and on par with other hibachi type place. Overall nice experience.

Konomi is my all time favorite restaurant. You can't go wrong with anything you order. The sushi is excellent! Once you eat here, all other Japanese food will pale in comparison. Every time we go through Trussville, we have to make a stop at Konomi!
