“Great tepanyaki experience”
Reviewed January 7, 2011

I have been here twice in 2010. Both times I was with a large family group at a tepanyaki table. The food and service were above average. Of note, the cocktails are great and the sushi was amazing. It is bit pricy compared to other restaurants, but the entertainment is great for the added price. I will go back-

“Amazing quality”
Reviewed May 19, 2010

If you are interested in high quality sushi, just go to Konomi. If you are not a fan of sushi, Konomi has a variety of other Japanese inspired dishes and sushi choices that could satisfy even the pickiest eater. If you are in the Iowa City/Coralville area, you have to try Konomi.

“Competes with the best sushi restaurants countrywide”
Reviewed March 2, 2010

Some of the best and most creative sushi you will find. Konomi can compete with the "big city" sushi restaurants on the East or West Coast. The quality of the fish is excellent. If you're the adventurous type, ask Andy for his special personal creations. You won't be disappointed.

They also offer other traditional Japanese dishes such as bento boxes (lunch menu). The dinner menu has additional fine dining options. One of my favorite entrees is the beef tenderloin. You might also want to try their teppanyaki grill. It's great for group events.
