Hibachi Clear Soup
Nice comfortable atmosphere…though could see where the bar area could get noisier. Our waitress was pleasant, prompt and courteous. My Zombie was potent but not too so. Our meals were flavorful and plentiful in size. We would definitely recommend and will be back.
FOOD WAS GOOD, BUT A LITTLE TOO LOUD. MENUS A LITTLE DAUNTING
The service was amazing , they were well prepared way before we got there and sat us immediately. The good was great not a single order out of 26 (impressive within itself) was not messed and even my stuck up and picky eater of a father enjoyed his Hibachi chicken rice
Amazing place food is beyond delicious and staff was friendly
The best place. Very cozy. Staff is amazing, food is phenomenal!
Thank you guys!
We wanted Hibachi table and open table places you at a regular table. The staff was very kind and accommodating and we only had to wait 15 minutes and they got us to a Hibachi table. Great fun, thank you !!
We like to celebrate Birthdays there. Great food, and service. Always a fun time.
The waitress was very kind and helpful. Great job social distancing everyone.
My son and I absolutely love the food here
Always a solid experience at Kom
Food is amazing, atmosphere was very nice as well. Would highly recommend
It was amazing. Food is the best, service was good and one part that I didn’t like was the noise from hibachi place, but it didn’t bother us that much.
Overall, everything was perfect! Highly recommend
Great place for Hibachi in the area. Service was fast and friendly. Took my 10 year old daughter for something special and the chef did not disappoint. A fun experience with a tasty Asian-style meal. Unique beverages for kids and adults. Due to Covid and the time of our reservation, it was quiet. Just the two of us at a large hibachi table made us feel special.
Love having hibachi for lunch. The meal today was excellent as always. Service was good. They sat all parties at separate tables which is good of you are concerned with Covid.
My scallops tasted like gasoline. Too much garlic in the hibachi sauce. Waitress was all over us to order without waiting for us to look at menus. Won’t be back.
We had a 7:30 reservation for Hibachi. We were seated at 7:40. We didn’t receive our food until 9pm! Meanwhile tables around us that were seated after us were served ahead of us.
Great restaurant. Thought it was too full considering covid so we were happy with our corner table. Something for everyone - bar, private dining, dining, hibachi grills.
I have been to Kon several times since moving to the Portland area last year. While the food is good, this last visit was quite a different experience.
The restaurant was packed, while waiting to be seated, I looked around and the tables were far to close together thus was in the main dining room.
We were seated on the Hibachi area where the seating was not six feet apart. Myself & my date stayed but were very careful to maintain our distance.
I would hope this restaurant gets back into social distancing, until it does I will not return.
The food and environment was amazing! Our waitress Amy was so welcoming!!! I can’t wait to visit again.
Promptly seated and great service. It was a busy Saturday night, but service was on point.
Great option for hibachi and sushi both! Would definitely recommend
Our waitress was so attentive and friendly that it made the experience a great one.
We love Kon. After going around southern Maine for sushi my husband stated Kon has the best rolls and he wishes he could go daily. We went two times in one weekend. The restaurant is beautiful and quiet and peaceful. The staff is friendly and knowledgeable and it’s clean
New Years Eve
Great food and service!
Food was good. Services was not great never asked if we wanted more drinks. It was freezing inside.
Great experience overall from staff to food to ambiance. Highly recommended
The food was good and the hibachi cook did a great job. I did request my child’s veggies to be on the side and was told they by the server they would be, but they were plopped onto the rice and meat so not much was eaten. The server did a great job keeping up on refills. There was an entire table party walking around the restaurant taking pictures (unmasked) including in the restroom. I’m not sure why they were being allowed to do this. Restaurant employees kept looking at them, but no one asked them to sit down or leave.
Food was awesome! Service was great! Highly recommend
Nice meal attentive service
It was so wonderful to dine at Kon again. The staff is friendly and adheres to CDC guidelines. I felt very safe and would recommend supporting them when you're thinking of dining out!
Twenty fifth birthday there was awesome!
I absolutely love Kon. There is something for everyone on their menu. They have awesome crab rangoon with THE BEST dipping sauce. Their pad thai is delicious. My friend loves the beef with broccoli. I haven't had a chance to try it yet but have had the hibachi, sushi, pad thai, chicken lettuce wraps and wonton soup. The restaurant is clean and very large.
Hibachi area was amazing for groups. Entertaining all through the meal.
Had a great celebration of my birthday. The server was very attentive to our needs despite restaurant being extremely busy.
Very nice dinner! So glad we went there! Waitress was outstanding, food delicious, drinks were solid!
Sat at bar, excellent food, excellent service and friendly bartender.
I had a great time at Kon. I haven’t been to a Hibachi place in years and enjoyed the experience of having sake shot into my mouth, trying to catch vegetables, and seeing the food being cooked in front of me.
The food was amazing and when we got the bill we were shocked at the price. My wife guessed it was $40 higher than it was. We will absolutely be returning?
Simply put, Kon is one of the most solid options around whether you're needing space for a larger group or just want to grab a drink and some apps with your better half. Food is quick and fresh, service is solid, prices are reasonable. Bar offering and value is good as well. I don't ever recall having a bad meal here.
