“Excellent calamari!”
Reviewed 30 September 2013

I travel the world and eat calamari every city or country that has it. Wanted something different from the norm while in Phoenix so people recommended Kona Grill. Absolutely not disappointed by the calamari with its spicy aioli sauce! Generous portion, perfectly cooked, would love to have again some day. Ordered the trio-sampler sashimi which was absolutely incredible. Place is located in a mall with valet parking and is a hot spot (aka "meat market") as mentioned in other reviews here but you can get past that if you eat inside as opposed to the bustling outside patio area. All age groups in attendance here from high school or college kids to the typical grandparents. Prices were reasonable for sushi but you don't go for sushi/sashimi on a budget so check the online menus and make a stop. Service was attentive although slower than typical restaurants so don't try dinner here on a time crunch. Enjoyed the visit.

“Good Variety and Nice Atmosphere”
Reviewed 28 August 2013

Though they seem to specialize in sushi, they offer quite a variety of great dishes. I especially like the satay chicken with peanut sauce, which is hard to find (used to love in Indonesia). The service and value are good.

“Interesting menu and good rolls”
Reviewed 25 July 2013

It was my first time at any Kona Grill and the start of the night was just plain bad. No one acknowledged us for over five minutes and that was only after we stopped the manager to get some menus. Our server must have been having an off night; slow drinks, no place settings, no follow-up, food came out and sat on table until again we stopped the manager to get place settings, plates, and drink refills. But to the credit of Nik the manager our experience was a positive one. He made everything right from that point on. The food was excellent. The flat bread was served hot and it's a big portion. We tried three different rolls, again top-notch. Happy Hour selection and pricing was impressive.
