    Pad Thai two thumbs up. Basil pesto linguine three thumbs up. BEWARE: avocado egg roll appetizer is to die for but they charge $10 per egg roll. It's a nice surprise when you get 4 for forty.

    Trendy spot. Best happy hour sushi and cocktails in the city but can be tough to get a table. For night owls, try the reverse happy hour.

    If you're looking to mix it up, try the checkerboard roll. If you like spice, try the voodoo roll - the waiter told me it wasn't "that hot" but I learned there's nothing mild about habanero sauce

    A must-do happy hour in KC. Sushi is delicious. Love the lettuce wraps, too. Outdoor seating is a bonus.

    Love happy hour, hate the stress of finding a table. Service can be lacking at times. Sushi does the job.

    If you like spicy food, and edamame, then the "angry edamame" is the way to go!!!!

    Office drones' idea of a hip happy hour. If Black & Veatch had a love child with Reece & Nichols, the patrons of Kona would be that child.
