Kona Grill Restaurant Review

: Dark wood, fresh flowers and plush booths lend Kona the kind of poshness you don't expect from a mall restaurant. And while it's true that many guests are here for a little rest and relaxation from shopping, this lively spot also draws singles, couples and families who appreciate a menu that offers something for everyone. There's no denying a certain pan-Asian slant to the chain, as evidenced by dishes such as chicken satay and teriyaki salmon salad. Nevertheless, a meat-and-potatoes diner can be appeased with a double-cut pork chop or a prime rib-eye, both served with white cheddar mashed potatoes. Slightly more adventurous types won't want to miss the beef bulgogi tacos or the seven spice ahi salad. For dessert, both the passion fruit crème brûlée and Key lime pie are good bets. Folks young at heart should check out Kona's killer happy hour, offered from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. Monday through Friday, and again from 10 p.m. to midnight on Friday and Saturday.
