Als je fan bent van kwalitatief goede sushi dan mag je Konomi zeker niet missen. Om de hoek van de Grote Kerk vind je dit smalle zaakje dat geheel in Japanse stijl is gehuld. Compleet met rode lampions en Japanse gordijntjes. Eigenaresse Tia Swierts komt uit een horeca gezin en maakte al jaren sushi. Een eigen sushizaak openen was dan ook een logische stap. Ze startte een crowdfundingcampagne en haalde al binnen 40 minuten het benodigde bedrag binnen. Het was duidelijk; Haarlem stond te poppelen om haar zaak! Naast de wat bekendere sushivarianten kun je hier ’s middags poké bowls snoepen en je vindt hier ook creatieve varianten zoals haar signature Konomi soft shell crab roll. Een plaatje om te zien en een feest om van te eten. Persoonlijke aandacht en een goede service is naast geweldige gerechten serveren voor Tia en haar team prioriteit nummer één. Niet zo gek dus dat ze inmiddels een trouwe groep vaste gasten hebben.

Tip van bySam: Konomi heeft een terras in de knusse Paarlaarsteeg waar je lekker je sushi kunt eten en tegelijkertijd mensen kunt kijken

    Wonderful food. The restaurant is quite small. It is amazing how the chef can create all the dishes in a small kitchen. Great planning for which respect.

    Cute little place with delicious japanese food. We had the 4 course tasting menu - We had a sashimi platter, sushi, tempura, crab, cod with rice and a curry and a desert. All courses come as sharing plates. Definitely a nice evening for a date night or with friends.

    Great dinner at Konomi! We went for the 6-course-surprise-menu, a delicious variety of food, all well prepared. Timing of the courses was good, no rush but an ideal cadence for a relaxed evening together.

    Really nice small restaurant with beautiful and friendly ambiance. We had the tuna tataki which was very very tasty and the tuna was of high quality.Sashimi was also very good and the soft crab roll was simply amazing. Same for the fried tempura roll! Highly recommended!

    What a lovely spot on a very hot evening. We arrived two hours past our reservation time! I confused 7:30 PM with 17:30, but our hostess and servers couldn't have been more gracious and welcomed us. We sat outside in the cool alley and were served a succulent little amuse bouche of scallop, then my husband raved over his thinly sliced scallops with trout caviar, and I had a very meaty rainbow roll, with salmon, tuna, and avocado, plus more - very delicious. The service was outstanding as was the food.

    We enjoyed a nice diner outside last Sunday. Amber was amazingly friendly and beyond hospitable. However, we made a reservation for 8pm and unfortunately lots of menu options were sold out. Which was a pity since we like to enjoy a ‘long’ diner. The sushi we got was very fresh and nice as well as the yakatori and veggie tempura. Hopefully there will be better wine options by the glass in the future since all white were not our taste. Overall a nice experience, but as they advised: dont come on Sunday to ensure they have a full menu available.

    In een smal steegje een smal restaurantje maar met sympathieke bediening, verse sashimi en boterzachte wagyu beef. Een aanrader!
