We've eaten here a few times and the food is always very good! We weren't able to get seats at the Hibachi tables so we sat in the regular dining room. Same great food with a few different options. Very clean and nice atmosphere. Good service as well.

The sushi is always good and fresh. I have never eaten there so I can't comment on the Hibashi but people say it's good.

We have been going to koto for years. The food is always very good. The service used to be better. We felt very rushed on our last visit. That happens often at hibachi.

I stopped in today with friends for lunch. The restaurant is very clean and well organized. I ordered the chicken hibachi which came with soup and salad. Both were very good. The hibachi lunch was a good size, fresh and delicious. The service was excellent. My friends also thought there meals were delicious. I really like Koto.

I dropped in here the other day looking for a nice sushi and was not disappointed. The interior is dark and cool, in sharp contrast to the ninety-degree heat of the parking lot outside. One would never know one was inside a strip mall in Jackson, NJ, the blinds drawn and the outside world shut out. I ordered the Sushi... More

It is an OK choice for the area, sushi were tasty but their lunch selections weren't that good. At times wait is also an issue. Staff were a bit annoyed by our presence too.

We eat here a few times a year. Food is always good and usually we have leftovers. Lunch is a great deal. Need reservations on weekends for Hibachi. Enjoy the chef's cooking shows

First off didn't realize I should have made reservations to sit at the hibachi grill. . It was a last minute choice since we were in the area. .I know it was a Saturday night but it was 5pm. The hibachi place we normally go to we don't need reservations,we wait but that's ok. Anyway, I didn't really enjoy the... More

Food is good and hibachi is very entertaining. I would rate this the same as any other hibachi place, but it is so nice to have something like this in Jackson.
