While still a typical Tepan table hibachi style restaurant, Koto adds an additional twist with both an excellent sushi bar and a kitchen menu. The restaurant is very large and very clean. The service is prompt and very friendly and the food is spot on cooked perfectly with large portions. They even have a kids menu for the hibachi tables, making this a perfect family restaurant.

This place was a new experience for me. It is the first time I saw a demonstration of jugglery with pots & pans followed by a cooking demonstration in front of me before eating a meal. It gave a new experience of eating out.

The food was cooked in front of me so it was tailor made for me. The portions were just right & any leftovers could be carried home if so desired. I enjoyed the taste of the food as well as the ambiance & realized that it was a great place to celebrate birthdays etc. The children loved the experience very much especially when they beat a drum to mark the celebration.

Went here on a friday evening for dinner. Nice atmosphere was greeted right away. All hibachi is 30% off so that's a plus also good portions of food. Would definitely come back.

We had not been to a Japanese steak house for quite a while and Koto Sake made us wonder why. It was a fun dining place made even more fun by the excited children of the family at the stove facing us. The cooks do their thing - juggling the cooking utensils, lighting a fire, etc., in order to make their audience get into it and look forward to the meal. I had chicken and lobster, my companions steak and scallops. The meal consisted of rice with egg and flavoring, noodles, vegetables and meat or fish. The fun of being there and interacting with others made for a good time while the food was adequate. My chicken was overdone and the lobster was in such small pieces, the taste lost in the flavoring. The scallops were not very good. The bulk of the meal consisted of carbohydrates. But this didn't matter because you pretty much know what your experience will be like, eat and have fun. Koto Sake had a special, half price for all hibachi meals, 15 dollars. I don't think that I would pay about 30 dollars but, if my children were still young, I would want them to have the experience at least once.

This Hibachi is the very best restaurant between Baltimore and DC you'll find. The food is fantastic. Honestly, just absolutely succulunt and delicious. The atmosphere is nice and the show is as entertaining as any Hibachi but really it's the value and the price that makes this so superb, you won't find it any cheaper than this. The portions are perfect, not too much and not too little. The wine and sake are good but really what makes this great is the deal!

If you visit on a Thursday night, you'll get half price Hibachi and if you visit on Monday you get half price Sushi. Additionally, they participate with Restaurant.com which means you'll get this food for even less. I highly recommend it!
