If you want the best sushi in town in a time-honored establishment in Olympia, look no further than Koibito. Koibito's sushi is extremely fresh every time, and if you are a frequent costumer, they will give you extra food (edamame, salad, and even fish) for...More

In town for just a night, our friends led us to Koibito for dinner. The sake was warm, the beer was cold. The sushi portions were reasonable and we really ate our fill. My wife, not a sushi fan, had some pork belly steamed buns...More

We've eaten here before and it was great. On May 11 it was quite a different story. When my husband asked if they had Michelob Ultra the (older) woman actually laughed at him. Then my daughter asked for her sushi to be wrapped in cucumber...More

At lunch I enjoy the lunch bento choices, and the donburi. Very popular place and very friendly. Although it is very fresh they make some odd choices about what goes in the sushi of the day. If you like California rolls and spicy rolls, you'll...More

Very good sushi restaurant. The best sushi and sashimi in town. They do not have a lot of creative roles that many people look for-- they simply have the best fish in the Olympia area and that's all we need in a sushi place

Shortly after we first moved to Olympia, a long-time resident recommended Koibito. We've eaten a TON of different meals here and have never been disappointed. Good quality, and great prices. The sushi, miso, and seaweed/cucumber salad though are the best. We've had the Dynamite, Alaskan,...More
