My meal is amazing every time I go here. I recommend the shrimp & noodles. The service is fast and the entire staff is friendly. The atmosphere is quiet and spacious. Koumi is also always extremely clean. Any time my friends and I are in Monroe, they always suggest we get Koumi for dinner!

The service is always fast and friendly! I always order the habachi chicken with the rice and carrots. Occasionally I also get a side order of SoBe noodles. The food is delicious and the portions are generous

Had the shrimp. It was great. Have also tried the salmon and enjoyed it as well. I like being able to get lunch at a drive thru and eat reasonably good for low cost.

This restaurant introduced me to Japanese food when we moved to Monroe years ago. It's when I learned that shrimp sauce was God's gift to food!! If you are in Monroe visiting and you want to be sure to get good food at a good price...THIS is a safe bet. I usually get Teriaki or Hibachi chicken with broccoli or... More
