Online buzz is building for a new Japanese restaurant in Fort Mill, one of many new restaurants in York County.

Groups like Fort Mill Eats on Facebook have been full of photos and recommendations from Konnichiwa’s recent opening. The Japanese restaurant opened in the former Zaxby space in the Baxter district at SC 160 and Pleasant Road.

Ikomang Yasa is president of the Konnichiwa family group, which has nearly a dozen restaurants in the Carolinas and Ohio. There’s also one in Charlotte.

“Our concept and menu is casual dining and a variety of traditional Japanese sushi, steak, bento box, habachi rice bowl and sushi sashimi, nigiri and roll, special konnichiwa ramen soup, chicken wings and seafood,” Yasa said.

Each Konnichiwa location offers different varieties of chef’s specials.

“The most dinners you would try is the bento box because the prices are very reasonable and good for the family,” Yasa said. “There’s a lot of food on it.”

It comes with fried gyoza, fried or steamed rice, mixed vegetables, meats, sushi, California rolls or noodle substitutes.

There’s also toro, a fatty tuna, as well as sea urchin, red tuna, salmon, yellowtail, giant king crabs and more, Yasa said.

Konnichiwa is open daily from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m.

Konnichiwa is one of many new local restaurants. Brooklyn Pizza & Pasta opened earlier this month in Rock Hill. The restaurant at 133 S. Herlong Ave. offers sliced ​​and whole pies. There are New York-style, Sicilian, stuffed, and thin-crust options. They also have stromboli and calzone.

Another new opening is TWF Burgers. The Gold Hill Crossing spot in Tega Cay offers the tenders, wings and fries that gave it its name. It’s at 887 Gold Hill Road in Tega Cay.

Eventually the restaurant will be open from 11 a.m. to midnight except Fridays and Saturdays when it will remain open until 2 a.m. Burgers, shakes and salads are also on the menu.
