Had a very quick lunch before my scheduled massage. Was seated quickly. Restaurant was not busy. Server approached quickly, was responsive and quick. Ordered avocado rolls and Cobb salad. Both delicious. Ordered extra chicken for my salad, which didn't come, server removed it from bill before even presenting check.

Go here quite a bit for lunch and dinner. Large quiet group area with a cozy bar area in the back, even an outside patio facing Westheimer Blvd (but far enough off the road so you don't choke on car fumes). I love the octopus and cucumber salad, the sushi has always been fresh and well prepared, my co-workers have... More

Very comfortable restaurant away from the main flow of the mall. A variety of items on their menu. Most of us got sushi. I enjoyed the chicken avocado club. It was served on 2 pieces of bread, not 3, much better. Attentive service.

I guess it is a good place for a burger or drink, but it wasn't really all that special. The food was good, but not excellent (I had a burger) and the beers were okay (but not any really good beers). The service was also good but not great.

My family and I went for lunch/dinner on Sunday. The mall was pretty crowded but the restaurant wasn't because of the time. Still, it took a long time for a server to come take our order and for the food to come. Pad thai and sushi tasted pretty good. However, Jambalaya was extremely spicy and that was a Mexican's opinion.... More

Thank you for taking the time to review your experience. We are glad you enjoyed our sushi and Pad Thai. Please be assured that the truffle oil, as a key component to a popular dish is an item that is does not stay long on our shelves so to speak. Do come again soon so that we may better demonstrate...

It is getting pretty dated and needs a renovation badly. The bar area is really noisy, but the dining on the other side is reasonably quiet. Service was spotty - it was a challenge to get another drink when my glass was empty.

Stopped here for lunch while at the Galleria. We had several different Sushi rolls and the were all very good. The Key Lime pie was awesome as well. All and all an enjoyable lunch at the Galleria. Would go again.

We three were at Kona Grill today for an early lunch which was a big disappointment and an experience we will not repeat: Only 3 tables occupied and we waited a very long time before anyone approached our table, iced tea was ordered and was certainly left from the day before as it had been stored and tasted (and smelled)...
