“Great Ramen!”

Koto Japanese Restaurant
Ranked #152 of 703 Restaurants in Oxford
Certificate of Excellence
Restaurant details
Reviewed January 8, 2017

The restaurant is a really quaint and cosy place hidden down a lane and parking can be difficult to find, but if you get the chance while in Oxford, you should definitely give the restaurant a visit. Make a booking beforehand though as there is usually a long wait.

The sushi is delicious and there are new 'specials' that appear on the board every now and again. The star of the meal however, is definitely the ramen. Their paitan ramen is delicious and I would recommend it, but honestly, everything that I've had from the menu hasnt ever disappointed me.

The staff go above and beyond to make sure you have everything you need and that you're enjoying your meal. For the quality of the food and the standard of service, Koto is definitely worth a visit.

I can thoroughly recommend the sea vegetable salad, vegetable tempura, tofu age-dashi and vegetable gyozas with a sake of your choice - served hot.

Staff are a true asset. Very kind, informative and attentive.

Gorgeous experience!

This was my first experience of Japanese food and after a recommendation we headed along. The food was outstanding in flavor, fresh, quick service and well priced. Would definitely go back but I highly recommend that you book as this was our second attempt at getting in. It is situated in a gorgeous lane of boutique artisan shops and the area of Park Town is well worth the visit.
