I love this restaurant. Delicious Japanese food and the owners and staff are friendly. The hibachi dishes are delicious as well as the noodles. Definitely not typical fast food Japanese! It's Japanese Steak House quality for sure!

Great prices. Just so happen our selection was at "happy hour" prices! Domestic beer is at stealer prices! Food was awesome. Décor wasn't the fanciest, but the food made up the difference!

Went to Koto Grill last week for the first time. What a gem! The food is absolutely the best I've had in the area! It's a cute, quaint little place. They have a decent wine and beer selection as well. Our Waiter/Bartender was an absolute stitch! He took exceptional care of us. This is definitely one of our Favs!

Best local place for Japanese food in Amherst County. The food is great and the staff very good. Small seating area but worth the stop and so handy with them being right on Rt 29.

Great sushi! I don't care for salmon and they are happy to substitute another fish for me. It is very nice when the owners want to visit with the customers and be sure the meal was enjoyable. I'll definitely be back.
