It's not my first time here, but it is the first time I had this amazing surprise. Now anyone with any kind of allergies is safe to enjoy here. Of course service is top and kids menu is great for the little ones too!

I visited the Kona Grill for a business meeting. Interestingly, there were very few people in the restaurant, our table of 12 was the largest party in the restaurant and there were only 4 other tables occupied. However, the service was rather slow. The food...More

Located on the lower level in the Galleria mall. Food is at par with the Plano location. Took a while to get our food but it was well prepared. Had to rush the lunch to make it to the appointment.

Stopped here for a late lunch, they have a nice variety of menu selections. The food is good and consistent and the wait staff very attentive, but not overly so. We always stop here when we visit Houston

Wasn't bad.. for a mall attached standard I was expecting something slightly better. The waiters was so kind and obviously overwhelmed and busy. The food was good but nothing like the Houston standard.. I might visit again for a quick bite or drink..
