“Great and interesting food”
Reviewed 26 May 2014

We enjoyed an excellent meal in this small and unassuming restaurant. We had little experience of Japanese food but the meal here convinced us it is well worth returning. Food was flavoursome and well presented. Service was friendly and efficient.

“Good, healthy food and a warm welcome”
Reviewed 7 May 2014

Good, interesting food. Great service especially from the owner who is an absolutely delightful woman – very warm and welcoming. I had not eaten Japanese for many years and it was good to have a fairly straightforward menu that still gave plenty of choice. It felt so healthy too!

“Great Japanese Restaurant”
Reviewed 29 April 2014

We ate here on a Saturday evening and the atmosphere, food and service were superb. The meal was refreshingly ungreasy like so many restaurant meals. It is basically a set four course meal with a few choices but this just added to the evening as I never know what to choose in Oriental restaurants when the menus are so vast. Just wished we lived nearer so we could visit more often.

“Japan in a corner of Ludlow”
Reviewed 11 April 2014

Koo is tucked away in a residential street of foodie Ludlow and provides one of the best eating experiences in the town. Our set meal of four courses was delicious, beautifully presented and prepared. The Salmon marinated in Miso was particularly memorable, as was the green tea creme brulee, giving it a Japanese twist on an old favourite. Marie is a gracious and attentive hostess and ready to give advice on any of the dishes. We can highly recommend it for an evening with a difference in elegant surroundings in a building with large old beams.

“Wow!”
Reviewed 10 April 2014

Five of us had a meal at Koo and it was wonderful. Loved it. Lovely flavours, presentation, textures and tastes. The service was excellent and nothing was too much trouble for both the chef and the proprietor. Thank you so much for a lovely evening and real flavour of Japan.
