Don’t want to be unfair during COVID-19 but the service and wait time was ridiculous. Understaffed but I want to give them the benefit of doubt due to the pandemic. Maybe a review during regular times would be fair.

Our waitress Daisy was not the best waitress , she kept forgetting our drinks and brought us the wrong items . When it was time to pay I chased her down . I almost felt like walking out because I couldn’t believe I had to look for her to pay , usually the waiter on close by during check out . Overall is wasn’t a pleasant experience . Mind you I’ve been to this restaurant before and never experience such bad service .

We had the pleasure of dining at Kao for the first time this past Friday for my fiancé’s birthday. We were delighted to take advantage of their happy hour 2 for 1 deals just before it ended at 7pm. The food was amazing and their cocktails were pretty good. Our waitress was very attentive and kind. Would definitely return!

Great place to eat and the sushi rolls were so good! With the pandemic currently going on, they made various changes for our health and for the health of their employees. Menu is now a barcode that when you take a picture using your phone, it shows it online.

This place is amazing! I loved the food and service. They kept masks on the whole time and did do a lot of social distancing. I loved the Miami spice dinner menu. Leaves you extremely satisfied and comes with one drink. Will definitely be visiting again soon

We went right after Wuhan flu restrictions were lifted and so my volume/noise level ratings are probably off. I imagine during normal circumstances the noise is a little above quiet. With that being said, I'm still talking about the miso soup. I normally don't do more than taste the soup. I devoured this one. I can't get over how much I enjoyed it. Wet had two sushi rolls after that. I'm literally still smiling about howmuch I enjoyed them. Wait staff was on point and only down side to our visit was that there weren't more people there. I'm a picky sushi eater. WE WILL BE BACK FREQUENTLY. I loved it. Looking forward to trying their drinks next time.

Hello, Thank you kindly for letting us know how your experience was. We are happy to hear that you enjoyed our food. Yes, you are right, normally it's much nosier but we just opened for dine-in last week, and we think it will take a little more times for people getting use to dining out again. We are sure it will start happening very soon.

Came to Koa for a second time. Again, the food was delicious and filling. Helen was our waitress again and we were delighted. This time, we went with friends that were celebrating their 17th anniversary. They too enjoyed food and atmosphere. The only complaint we would have about our visit this time would be the delay in the time that the food was delivered to our table. Overall, our friends enjoyed it as much as we did.

We went for a Valentine's dinner. Although we arrived early, we were shiwn to our table right away. Our waitress Helen was very friendly and knowledgeable about the menu. We ordered the Valentine's dinner that was being featured and that Helen suggested. Keeping in mind that it was a busy night already, we waited longer than usual for our food to arrive. However, we received our entrees BEFORE the appetizers. Nonetheless, the food was very tasty and cooked perfectly. Unfortunately, the desserts we ordered never came out. Apparently, there was a big confusion with the food in the back and our desserts were not to be found. In the end, the manager discounted our meals, we had a lovely time, our waitress was very friendly and we would definitely recommend the restaurant to everyone. As s matter of fact, we will be dining at this restaurant again today.

If you’re looking for a sushi place with an Argentinian and Peruvian flare, this is your place. Beautiful restaurant with indoor and outdoor seating for people watching. Food was good and the sushi had a twist with yummy sauces. Some of our party also had the grilled churrasco steak. Great place when you want to eat sushi and have someone in your party that prefers Argentinian style grill. Full bar and great service.
