Default Koyame, needs your business

Last couple of times I went into Koyame for my chicken pad thai fix, I see that most of the tables are empty. I usually get the spring roll (2) and chicken pad thai for $11.60 carryout and it easily makes two meals. And it is really good.

They do both Chinese and Thai and it is a newer restaurant. You can walk in and be seated at 6:00. Not many places here this time of year you can do that.

Just my 2 cents worth, but I'd like to see them with more customers to insure they'll be here in the future.

Not a real fan of Chinese food, except for hot and sour soup and wonton dumplings. We went there with friends before a concert at Church on the Square last week. We selected Koyame because we didn't want to take a lot of time to eat but we wanted good food. We all chose from the hibachi menu and everything we had was really good. The wine was a good deal, too.

It is in the Spanish Plaines Plaza beside Whole Earth Pet store and Publix. It would be a shame to lose a great restaurant because people don't know how to get to it. There is usually a coupon in the Daily Sun on Thursday and their prices and portions are good. They are an asian fusion and their pad thai is great. They will cook a vegetarian meal for you too. So anyone can eat there.

We tried it a couple of weeks ago and came away very impressed. We had the beef lo mein and fried dumplings and everything was very tasty and portions were large. Will definitely go there more often.

We feel it is the best around, fast, good portions, friendly people and very flavorful dishes!

The only down side is Ollies frozen custard at the other end of the shopping center!Burp...

Took my mom there and we loved the way the veggies were crisp and sliced beautifully. Service was excellent and the soup so hot and yummy.

Absolutely the best Asian in the area. Why Villagers flock to far worse places and wait in long lines is amazing. Kayame is the best there is in these parts and it should be busy all the time. Try the Chicken with Garlic sauce.

I'm wondering why they have a Japanese name if they serve only Chinese and Thai. But here is their website. I'll have to try them sometime.

koyame is definately a must try restaurant. eat in, take out(with online ordering) or better yet have Restaurant Dining Delivery - Village Grocery Delivery, LLC bring it straight to your door.they'll even bring a pint of ollie's frozen custard if that is your fancy. spanish plaines shopping plaza is golf cart accessible on 441. close to the hospital.

Thank you for the recommendation....we had lunch there this afternoon. The food was DELICIOUS, the presentation was beautiful, the service was great.
By the time we finished, there was only one small table unoccupied. A number of patrons came in to pick up take out orders. I know we will be heading back to Koyame to dine again....and again and again!

Went there recently because I had a craving for Chinese for take out. They were extremely busy, so went to a place nearby called Sakura.....absolutely the worst food EVER!!! Inedible! I threw it all way.
