I don't care for sushi personally, but went with a friend who lives in Salinas and highly recommended this place. The décor is nothing to write home about .... but the food is very very good authentic Japanese food. We shared a dragon roll, which was beautifully presented, fresh and tasty. I had the Sesame Chicken as my entrée and... More

Kokoro Sushi is a must have every month. When we have a family night this is the place to go. Everyone loves going here for their favorite dish. For appetuizers it's Agadashi Tofu and Hamachi Kama. For dinner it is a variety of different sushi rolls and BBQ Ribs, Nabeyaki Udon, Tempura Shrimp, and Oyako Donburi. DELICIOUS

I have never had anything here that I did not like, including the baked mussels. They are so good. Also try the jalapeno bomb appetizers. All of their rolls are good and they offer pictures of them all in their menu, which is nice. One bit of advice, get there before noon, or be prepared to wait.

Very good food and service. Place is a little old, but the price is reasonable and the super California roll is delicious.

Don't waste your time on this place. This place has the WORST customer service I've experienced at any restaurant! I gave them many chances, because it's closer to work and home, but enough is enough. If you want good sushi and good, friendly service with a smile, try Ikebana Japanese Restaurant on N. Main Street.
