Just ate at Kotobuki again last week... it is always a relaxed, Zen-like experience marked by an unhurried pace and excellent food. This IS a sushi place, but you have other choices if sushi is a turnoff. The teriyaki, tempura, sukiyaki and noodle dishes (featuring chicken, steak, shrimp and salmon) provide cooked options, but the sushi is fresh and beautifully... More

First time here. Saw the review, very keen to explore. The Kotobuki roll was excellent. The breaded oyster was good too. Definitely will be coming here more often

We've been going to Kotobuki for over 20 years..When the kids come back into town it's one of the places we "must" have dinner at..Kotobuki is what we measure all others Japanese restaurant by. The owner Dennis is is an awesome guy who goes out of his way to make you feel at home..

Best sushi in the area. Been going here for many years. The staff is as good as their food. Last visit though was disappointing. Made our sushi wrong twice, my wife ate only 1 piece but we didn't want to wait for a third try. This was a dissapointing visit but 50-60 before were all good. Sorry that the salad... More

I bought a Groupon to try this place. It was well worth the money! I took my son and we had a very nice dinner. I am not a sushi person, but we had rice and vegetables and chicken. I would go back again!

They have a wide and fresh selection of sushi for all adventure levels and tastes. Their udon is also delicious. Last time I got their Benito box, which was a nice surprise of appetizers and sushi, plus shrimp and veggie tempura. If you like green tea, order it, it is complimentary.

Went here for dinner with my mom and we really enjoyed their sushi. We started off with bowls of their Miso soup and their house salad (their house dressing is not the typical ginger dressing, I would say that it has more of a lemon flavor than ginger but still very delicious). We had the Spicy California Roll, Blackjack Roll,... More

Had a wonderfully fragrant, rich bowl of broth with udon noodles and a side of crispy shrimp and veggie tempura accompanied by a subtle dipping sauce. This was preceded by a salad with thinly sliced cukes and radishes topped with a piquant dressing with a kiss of ginger. Can't wait to go back for sushi!
