The food is generally what you'd expect for a quick lunch. Heavy on the sauce and light on the quality. But the price is good for the amount of food you get, which is usually a lot. Everything has tasted fine

Inexpensive yummy food. The hibachi is really good, some of the other dishes are hit or miss. The menu is extensive so it's hard to figure out what to order. But for the price I think most people will be happy with what they order.

Great food. Excellent food choices. Something for everyone. They also wait on you if you dine in which you wouldn't expect walking in.

i usually get the steak hibachi for takeout, food is always ready on time and pretty good quality. plus they give u plenty of white sauce! my only critique would be that the meat could be better quality. other than that the overall food quality and quantity for the price is great!

Great food. Large portions. Drive up and delivery only due to pandemic.

The food is good but the current drive thru only situation is horrible. If you order and pay online you still wait forever (30-45 min) behind all the other cars. Some sort of curbside option would be more efficient

Great food and fantastic prices. Conveniently located on the main road I drive in Durham. The food is incredible. When I went, I ordered a Mango Boba Tea, made with real mangos, huge crab wontons, green curry and some sushi. All of it was about $30, which is crazy good. The two rolls were Eel Lover and the Samurai Roll. The eel was so tender, you could smush it with your tongue. The samurai roll had a few things, including egg and tuna, all together and it mixed really well. I will make this my new sushi/Asian food place, while I’m in Durham.

Food is decent but then you see the environment it's prepared in. Not sure if I'll come back.

I have been going there for a while. The food is pretty good and everyone is usually helpful. How ever to me the quality of the food is just not as good as when the first time they opened. They’re prices have even gone up.

Great for big group orders. One item was wrong but the food fantastic. Pineapple rice is amazing and pad thai was fantastic. They are good at custom orders.

I love the variety of real Southeast Asian food. From the fish sauce to the Thai hot sauce and everything in between, the food is great! Service excellent. Highly recommend. Amenities are classsic Americana, but don't be fooled, the food is authentic Southeast Asia.

Koumi has excellent hibachi. We ordered the steak and shrimp hibachi. The steak was tender; both the steak and the shrimp were cooked perfectly. Even the rice is tasty! The meals come with salad or soup. We also ordered a couple sushi rolls and they were as good as those at a sushi restaurant.

You can order ahead on the phone and just pick up your food through the drive through. I had the pad thai and shaggy dog roll. Both were great. Service was fast and took the eta that they gave me.Koumi is a very interesting restaurant. As mentioned in some previous reviews, the restaurant definitely from the outside appears to be a bit sketchy.

I had a great first time experience. The young lady behind the counter did not make me feel rushed as I was looking over the menu. I ordered the chicken fast entree. It was very flavorful. I will make this part of my lunch break rotation.

This place is closes for an hour at 3pm to 4pm. Got there 10 after 3 & I was advised to come back at 4. I've eaten here before & the food is good, just thought that the hour closure was a bit odd.

Great place to pick up sushi on the way home. Selection is mixed between hibachi and sushi favorites, with all the expected appetizers.

One of those little hole in the wall places that you wish you would've found sooner. The menu was vast, the portions were abundant, and the crab ragoons are possibly some of the best I've had. My food came within 10 minutes and the staff was attentive to our needs. Definitely recommend! 🤩🤩

I'm a regular of this because the food is good. Only gripe is that they only serve hibachi when the owners are not at work which sucks as it limits the menu to 1/3 of their offerings. Their best is their Thai and vietnamese dishes but you better hope the owners are there or it's a waste of time.
