This is Japanese seafood/sushi/steak restaurant. It is a chain with other restaurants in Austin and Dallas, Texas. it is in one of many shopping malls in Kailua-Kona. it was near our resort, Sheraton Kona, so we ate there on last night. We did not have reservations, but they seated us right away anyway. We were near the sushi station. Neither of us as sushi lovers. we ordered steak and it was very tender and had reasonable price.

This place is good, but if you factor in price and service it is barely ok. The food is standard sushi with some innovative items thrown in, but the price is way too high and the service can be spotty. If you like (love) sushi I recommend Shimaichi in downtown.

Went for Valentine's Day. The sashimi and black cod appetizers were very good. The Ono entree was excellent as well as the entree special Ehu. Also I really enjoyed the bananas foster. the service was friendly and very efficient. This will be one of my regulars when visiting Kona.

We loved this restaurant! It offers both sushi and cooked main dishes (not strictly Japanese). We both opted for main dishes: the duck and the diver scallops. Both dishes were well-prepared and delicious. And the service was excellent.

Several Kona-ites and our concierge recommended Kenichi - especially at happy hour, so we anticipated a great time. However, what we experienced was one very hassled bartender trying to cope with serving a full bar of diners and barely keeping it together. We understand that when you are way....overworked, there is no time for friendly banter or greetings but owners need to understand that the service makes or breaks a dining experience. The food was pretty good but we waited so long for each dish that our patience was wearing thin. Perhaps we just happened to dine on a stray bad day, but our next visit will not include Kenichi.
