Kotobuki is a delicious, authentic Japanese restaurant in downtown Stamford. It gets more busy as the hours get later. Fish is unbelievably fresh and does not take long for exquisite looking sushi rolls to come your way. Prices are very reasonable. FYI...there’s only on street...More

I think this is my fave Sushi place in downtown Stamford. They have a great menu of non-Sushi items as well which have all been great. This is the place you want to go if you don't want some disco ball experience that Sushi places...More
