Kona Grill offers a staggering array of choices, from sushi to satay and bulgogi to a variety of meats augmented with pineapple or macadamia nuts. But Kona is not just a pan-Asian place with a little Hawaiian/Polynesian flair. The menu also includes flatbread pizza, linguini, sliders, and more.
The calamari appetizer was a fairly standard, very generous serving of breaded, fried, non-rubbery rings and tentacles. The batter had a hint of sweetness, and the accompanying aoli sauce provided a nice spicy balance.
The sushi sampler — immaculately fresh shrimp, tuna, and salmon sashimi plus a California roll and a side salad –– was great. The fish was as good as anything you’d find at a high-dollar sushi restaurant. The Cali roll was as tasty as a not-really-sushi-roll can be, and the salad was a caesar, with a lovely garlic-infused dressing and parmesan croutons.
