Recently had their calamari, was not impressed the type of batter was not good , they seemed burnt. The fire steak was pretty good, and the shrimp shumai was average. I remember going here a lot in the past and the food always seemed better. All in all the place is just average.

I have either the salmon bento box or the tofu bento box for lunch. And I ask for the california roll instead of the usual sushi roll. I don't eat meat, except for fish, and I really enjoy the bento box lunch...delicious and good value. I also enjoy their house sake. Everything reminds me of good food in Japan.

I went here with a couple of friends for lunch. They ordered. I don't know enough about Sushi to order intelligently. What was presented was tasty. My wife would love this place. She spent 3 months in Tokyo.

We usually take out from Kohnami. The quality of their sushi is always top notch. There aren't many options for sushi in Santa Fe and Kohnami certainly helps to fill the void. Always greeted by a very friendly staff.

The best buy here, in my humble opinion is their Bento Box lunch. Priced $8.50, it's more food than I can ever eat with a collection of sushi, a choice of seafood, miso soup, rice, tempura veggies/shrimp and salad. Everything is cooked to perfection. There is also a sushi bar which I love to sit at when dining alone and... More

My friends and I were pleasantly surprised when we stopped here for lunch on Saturday after going to the Farmers' Market and the flea market in the Railyard ... the Bento Box lunch was superb and reasonably priced ... my friends each had a Japanese beer and I tried the Japanese soda --- it is warm, cozy, clean, and welcoming...

We've been going to Konami for lunch for years. The Bento box lunch is terrific. Whenever we bring guests, they're surprised and delighted. What's not to like? Miso soup, then the box with salad, a few pieces of tempura shrimp and veggies, sticky rice, 4 small California rolls, and chicken, salmon, beef or tofu, with wasabi and pickled ginger-probably the...

We visited Kohnami in the same month (July) last summer. I remember a very pleasant visit; good food; attentive wait staff. We visited again this July. Instead of sitting in the main dining room, because there were three of us we asked to sit in the back room, where the sunken tables are. I looked around and was horrified. I... More

This was the best Japanese food I have had since I traveled to Japan. Very hard to find authentic Japanese and tempura fried correctly! This place hit the mark in every way. Service, atmosphere were great also. The Tofu bento box was amazing and at less than 9 bucks, it is a steal. I will be frequently as much as... More
