Super fun hibachi experience with a large group. Great performance by the chef. Very busy night which made it loud but added to the festiveness of the occasion.
Salmon was under seasoned. Reasonably priced drinks, though!

The pad Thai was just not like it usually is. There was way to much noodle and not enough vegrable and the noodles were way too soft. Maybe overlooked. I always look forward to the pad Thai but this was disappointing.

We were there for my sons 18th bday and our cook wasnt much fun compared to others in the past.
Our waitress never came back to check on us to see if we wanted another drink or anything. Have had other waitresses in the past much more attentive.

Meal was fine but reservations were a nightmare, I got 2 confirmation calls despite using open table. They don’t seem to understand how it works. Will not likely reserve again.

Having us wait to be seated past our reservation time was frustrating. The hibachi area was large, and not crowded but it was very loud. It was hard to hear each other and the server.

Party for hibachi. Chef pretty much ignored us. Food was terrible. I have had many hibachi experiences and this was by far the worst. Really wanted to celebrate with my family, some new to hibachi. Will never return.

I was here for a graduation and birthday party. The staff went over the top to make a great show for dessert. They were courteous and attentive. Since it’s a hibachi restaurant, it isn’t always quiet but that’s to be expected. It’s a bit expensive but that’s also to be expected since it’s a Japanese steak house! Definitely would recommend and go again. I have also been here for regular dining and it was fantastic :)

Great food! This place has been excellent for a long time, the food is hot and fresh. There is also a hibachi. I think this is the among the best Asian food location in Maine.

Celebrated my gf’s 50th birthday with her boys doing the hibachi. Our chef, Victor, was the best by far that I have ever had. He was entertaining, hilarious (for all age groups present), great energy and made a point to make it special for the birthday mom. The food was delicious and cooked precisely to order. Everyone in our party raved about the food and experience. Thank you Victor!

The service from our waitress was exceptional as well. Courteous, timely, available and pressure free.

Always enjoy coming here especially on the hibachi side. Our cook was very funny and entertaining. The food was excellent as always. It was very loud in there and very busy I’m not sure there were enough servers on that night. I had noted that it was a birthday dinner but nobody came around so we could ask them to do something. Otherwise a great time as usual.

We were there at the dinner hour and our table was close to the door. This made for a lot of background noise as people waited for their tables to be ready. I certainly plan on being back.

We had a wonderful time! Way to much food to eat in one setting :) left overs were enjoyable!! Our little guest was amazed by the "fire" and laughed and laughed. At 3yrs old that was pure magic! We will see you again.

Kon Asian Bistro is always a fun experience. We love the hibachi tables and the show that comes with the meal. We were led to our table right away. There was another family at our table so we had the opportunity to meet some other diners.
Great time!
