Had lunch with a friend here today. Tried the tuna wontons. Delish. Then had salmon sashimi, California roll, Caterpillar roll. All very fresh and very tasty. Waitresses was good. Friendly and fast. Location was nice.

The only time I ever visit this restaurant is during happy hour and it is a great deal on the drinks and small appetizers. I like the saki, calamari and pot stickers. I also come for the atmosphere especially when the patio is open outside which can be fun with friends in the summer or when the fires are lit... More

Kona is a favorite among friends, and I was delighted when I went vegan to learn they have a separate menu. The Oriental Salad was already a favorite of mine, so it was a treat to have it again.

Management was very rude to me and my associates. I am very disappointed with this particular restaurant. I have been a patron of many of these establishments and have not met anyone who was not accommodating, especially in an empty restaurant.

Loved the Pad Thai, Salmon, and had the best potstickers I ever tasted. Service was top notch and fast despite being very busy on a Wednesday night. Would definitely come here again.

Came here for Happy Hour based on a friends recommendation. Happy Hour is only available in the bar area. Drinks were alright. I had two margaritas and they were pretty strong. We all got some appetizers to share. Food wasn't anything too special. I think there are better places for Happy Hour and I intend to visit those places again... More

The sushi we ordered was delayed endlessly and when it arrived we were disappointed. Both the orders tasted bland and stale much to our dismay. However, must hand it down to the staff which was very very courteous. Waste of money, calories and time!

We were shopping at Cherry Creek Mall on a recent trip to Denver and decided to grab dinner here. We had the potstickers, tuna entree and a couple of sushi rolls, all of which were very good. What we liked best was the bento-style box dinner that they serve the kids' meals in. Not only did they have healthy options,... More

We went here when my in-laws were in town. We ordered multiple appetizers, drinks & dinner. All were delicious. I ordered the macadamia nut crusted chicken & it was good. The pineapple-papaya marmalade really made the dish. The ambiance of the restaurant was good. They have a large aquarium in the bar area that is really neat as well as... More
