Man at the hibachi grill was excellent: sense of humor, antics, great with the birthday boy, personable.
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 :)
We celebrated our 9 yr olds bday here. It was fun and the food was great. It’s our favorite place to go to for special occasion meals with our young family. Keeps them entertained!
We celebrated a birthday and the chef on the hibachi table was fabulous and fun!! Would definitely recommend and be back again!!
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.
What a great night! Hibachi was so yummy. Service was outstanding. Thank you for making our teenagers birthday so much fun.
Kon was awesome! Food was great and fairly priced, the waitress and hibachi cook were great! I would have given 5 stars but the bathrooms needed attention!
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.
Valentine’s Day !! Love this place! It was great to see couples, father and daughters and families of all kinds!!
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.
The food is great and that's what counts more than anything else.
Awesome service and great food. Seriously we went on a busy Friday night and I don’t think I’ve ever had my food come out at such a timely rate! Great value
They always do a great job with birthday celebrations!
Awesome birthday party for our grandson! We will definitely come back.
This was our first visit to Kon and it was fabulous. Of course the entertainment was pretty much the same as every hibachi, however our chef was indeed outstanding. Food was excellent, and price was very fair. Will definitely visit again.
Fun atmosphere! Went there for a 15th birthday dinner and were surrounded by teen parties at every table. It added to the festivities but if you wanted a quieter dining experience, there were many lovely tables in the dining room.
It was my girlfriend’s birthday and we loved the Hibachi server, his comedy and singing was amazing!
Great service, food and atmosphere . Menu has a wide variety to choose from.
Always love Hibachi! Good food, great chefs, really fun
Susan was our server and she was excellent!!!
Went for a birthday,, was terrific. Food delishous, kids enjoyed the show even gave the both a balloon.
We have been to this restaurant many times loving it but this was the first time that everything except the waitress was wrong. The young man doing the cooking at the grill said he was out the nite before celebrating New Years and continually messed up everything. The fire burst was next to our edge of the grill which has never happened. Very very hot! The rice and veggies totally undercooked and still crunchy. The shrimp and chicken were very over cooked. He did everything so quick and seemed to not care. No personality at all! Hopefully there won't ever be a 2nd time like this!
Always a great meal!
Food and service was fine. Restaurant was freezing cold
We love coming here. We have come here for the past 3 years for Xmas. It is always very fun.
Went for Hibachi in Christmas Day. Exactly what we expected.
Excellent all around. Somewhat out of the way location. Well worth the effort.
We usually get habachi but we sat at a table this time and ordered habachi food. The food tasted totally different.. the veggies were so soggy you couldn’t eat them, the rice had no flavor and chicken was very dry... probably will stick with only habachi next time.
I’ve been to Kon several times. I’ve tried many dishes and even experienced hibachi. Everything was really great.
We always have a great time at Hibachi!! We’ll be back for more!
Went for a dinner date with my husband. We agreed the food was delicious, price was decent, service was pretty good, and the atmosphere was perfect for creating an inviting and intimate date night experience. There is a Hibachi section which we intend to try out on our next visit.
Great variety on the menu, everything is good and it's a fun atmosphere!
We always have a wonderful time at Kon and tonight was no exception. The chef was funny and entertaining. The food was delicious and the wait staff was attentive. We have been going to Kon for birthdays since my kids were little and we will continue going until the kids have grown and moved away. Consistently wonderful!
It was perfect.
Chef was a blast...server was very dry & didn't seem to be happy to be there! She was blaaa!!! Thank god the cook changed the atmosphere, hope he gets a chunk of the tip!!!!
DELICIOUS! I am an avid hibachi eater and this place is great! Awesome Saki and amazing food, highly recommend.
Going here again for lunch before we leave!
Food was very good
It was quiet because it was 2pm
Would def go again.
