Best Sushi, Intimate Dining, Cheap Prices – HIGHLY Recommended! What a wonderfully intimate setting. We absolutely love this place! The prices are awesome, the service is prompt and courteous, and the sushi is impecably fresh. The tastes of this restaurant are comparable to other fine dining and higher priced japanese restaurants.
Now it is packed on Friday nights... – We passed this place one day and decided to give it a try. To our surprise we received a free Koto T-shirt after the meal because that date was its second anniversary. That was nice but possible free T-shirt was not the reason we kept on going back ever since. Excellent sushi and cheap prices were! You'll find excellent sushi in some other restaurants, but I'll bet that you won't find one with comparable menu prices. The place was empty when we first tried on its second anniversary. Now it is packed on Friday nights.
Excellent – Have been a regular customer for years Consistancy is hard to find in restaurant. Koto provide a well above average food quailty, fast service, and attentive staff with cheap price. Most of restaurants I went to cannot stand up with the same level with Koto. That is why it keep me coming back again and again...
BEST of The BEST SUSHI!!!~FOR CHEAP! – I've been going to Koto now for 7 years, they have had the same main waitress and sushi chef this entire time as well, MAYBE EVEN LONGER!!! I introduced my husband to this wonderful place and we go there every week. We love love love that they have inexpensive food. Which means...WE GET TO EAT MORE!!! YAY! The one thing that is bothersome is whether or not they have UNI, or sea urchin if you've never tried it you should...but be forewarned it's not for everybody. lol. oh, and they need more DESSERT!! BRING back the Green tea mochi ice cream!!!
MM Cheap and good! – Koto is pretty cheap, AND the quality of their sushi is good. If you order sashimi, they give you thick cuts which are big for the price you are paying. The rest of their food is average. Sometimes they are understaffed and there is a bit of a wait. Other than that, I would recommend trying this restaurant!
Great Place, Good Food – The service is freindly, the atmosphere is real, the food is good and the place is clean. They were a little skimpy with the wasabi but I asked for more and they brought me more. The place is nice and place the go, not big and glitzy
Worst experience ever – We had the worst experience we have ever had at this restaurant. We waited an hour for our food, and all we got was 2 pieces of salmon. After we asked about our food not coming, the waitress said it would be another 20 minutes. We got up to pay for the little that we had received so we could leave, and when we complained, the waitress and sushi chef became extremely rude. They said the service was slow because they had a large dinner party, and told us to stop arguing with them. We are never going back, and I advice others to not go there either.
cheap food – Koto offers $1 sushi and $2 rolls depending on selection. I like the atmosphere of the restaurant but there are much better places than this. The wait staff is really nice, especially Seiko. The sushi and sashimi can be a hit or a miss. I can tell it is really fresh one day and the next day it is not. There's also one sushi chef and it seems like he gets overwhelmed very fast when the restaurant gets busy. This place definitely gives a great value but I think I would rather go to a place that gives me fresh sushi every time.
Great Value – The food is always good, and it is a great value; however, the service is hit or miss.
An Attitude Adjustment – ....is what the waitresses need. I've never been treated or ignored in such a way that they do over there at Koto. It's a real shame because the food at the price they sell it for is very good but I will never, EVER go back because of the faces and snide comments those women servers make at you. They will, hopefully, soon figure out that a restaurant in America CANNOT only survive on having good food for cheap.
