Earlier I wrote a critical review of KONA. On September 30, 2017 I reluctantly joined my family at KONA. Much to my relief the meal, the outside ambiance, the waitress, and especially the food, was much better. Since we ate our lunch that day I...More

This place is right on the main drag. It's not a student place as it is a little too expensive for the student population. The food is okay. Not great, just good/okay. I had the tuna tacos. They were okay. Along with the 2 tacos...More

Definitely not worth the price. I got the curried chicken sandwich for $11 (one of the cheaper things on the menu). I received a cold sandwich that resembled egg salad on white bread. Would not go again.

This is a great restaurant in a fabulous college town. Great place for parents to take their students for a nice meal when visiting. Interesting menu and drink specials.

My hangar steak was OK. My wife sent her pasta back, it was cold. Took 5 minutes in a near empty place to get a spoon. Real let down

While Oxford has several good restaurants, there aren't a lot of "upscale" choices but Kona Bistro is one of them. We've eaten here on several visits to Miami University and Kona Bistro never disappoints. Most entrees are in the $15-$23 price range and the portion...More
