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!
