Never thought I'd find authentic Japanese food in this part of Long Island. This restaurant is small and fun by a husband/wife team. The food is authentic. Those of you who want a Boston roll or some other made up American style might be in for a shock. This is real Japanese food and so much better than what most... More

I am a sushi lover. Can not say enough about this place. Many business clients frequent this restaurant. Service is great. Choices are abundant and food is fresh and presented well.I may have eaten here 20 times over the last 5 years. Truly my favorite for Sushu, Sashimi and gourmet rolls.

Years ago we patronized Kotobuki with our then teenage kids on a regular basis, but stopped a couple of years back because it hadn't maintained its original standard of excellence. My husband & I visited again recently, and while some choices were still great (tuna & avocado salad), some are a far cry from 6-8 years back (like the crazy... More

This place is well hidden in a shopping mall, and you really need a GPS to find it for the first time. A double glass wall separates the restaurant from the parking lot and when you enter, you step into a different world. The interior looks great, the food is excellent, and the service is attentive and fast. There is... More

Great sushi spot. Has a huge variety, and very good prices. Highly recommend! I also especially enjoyed rolls that tempura in them. Tempura was very crisp, and oil tasted fresh.

This is by far the best sushi I have had. The tuna and advocate salad is so fresh and tasty. I love the specialty roll called tasty boy. They use tuna in this roll

The food at Kotobuki is excellent quality with generous portions. Not surprised that it's popular. It's fun to watch the four sushi chefs at work. The staff handled the crowding skillfully, even when a bird flew through the dining room! He was summarily escorted out. I recommend this restaurant.

Was here for lunch. Food is great! My favorite is Tuna and Avocado salad. The service is a little bit slow.

I have only been here once for lunch. This review is based on that experience and will obviously need to be updated once I return for dinner (which I plan on following a very satisfying lunch experience.) I was told to get here early... When they open... They fill up fast... They do! We got here shortly after they opened... More
