If I am in the Richmond area and want sushi - Koto is a restaurant I will visit. It is usually busy in the late evening hours and if you have to wait for a table it is worth the wait - even though the place is cosy as the tables are close together.... Have stayed at hotels close by and do take out when I can. Best to call in advance so its ready for pick up.

All the staff are very courteous and welcoming. The waitresses are efficient The menu food items are reasonably priced. I found the sake and import beers were pricey (around $9) so just stuck to the green tea when dining in.

It is so late at night that we come back from North Vancouver and found most of the Japanese restaurants in North Vancouver will close at 9:30 p.m. We tried a few and were told that they would close very soon. So we have to head back to Richmond hoping that the restaurants there will close a bit later.

We drive along #3 and Hazelbridge Way area and come across this restaurant. Once it is spotted, we are certain to dine there as there are many cars parked outside. Once stepped in, the restaurant is almost full. It is a small restaurant with all the tables very closely located to each other. We are lucky to sit at a corner by our own right in front of the sushi bar. We discover that there is a late night menu. No wonder why so many people! We order Salmon and Tuna sashimi, each for $4.95, a Salmon skin hand roll for 1.99, a Beef Udon $5.50 and a Sukiyaki. The sashimi is fresh and each has 3 or 4 pieces. The slice is about 1/2 inch thick, better than in Toronto. The hand roll is a bit loosely packed and it falls apart when you try to eat it. The rest is average. But given the price you cannot beat it. Of course the quality cannot be compared to Hapa Izakaya.

I found no paper towel available in the washroom!

The waitresses are very efficient and always come to us to give us more tea. They are readily available whenever needed. The service is fast. Given the price and the service, I recommend this restaurant.
