On a hot summer day, nothing is more refreshing than Sushi and a signature mojito; Kona Grill is your place! After a full day of shopping at Village Pointe Mall, the perfect respite is at Kona; a touch of the contemporary on the classic and perfect on Sushi!

Always delivers weather it's drinks or food. I absolutely a creature of habit and always get the calamari and salmon. I've had some amazing salmon but this the best I've ever had. Staff is always courteous and friendly.
