Popped in for a quick fill up. Had a medium chicken teriyaki with noodles. Not had to eat again today. Lovely sat on one of the stools watching the world go by. Friendly staff, cracking food what's not too like. Thank you

Had a delicious seafood udon noodle soup from here! I think it needs bearing in mind that this is a fast food place, and for what it is the food is done incredibly well. The katsu curry portions are generous and everything I had tasted amazing. The dumplings unfortunately had to be eaten cold as they're from their pre made... More

One thing that has to be said about Kokoro is the huge portions! I was very impressed when I was handed my food but when it came to eating it I was less than impressed. The only hot veggie option was the spicy tofu (the other vegetable thing had oyster sauce), so my friend and I got that and vegetable... More

I absolutely love this place... its small and can get busy at lunchtimes but the queue goes pretty quickly. I'm vegetarian so stick to those options, but the things in the fridge are delicious. Veg dumplings and pumpkin karoke are amazing! I keep going back and back to this place (even though I am trying to save money haha!) The... More

I enjoyed their food. If you need a quick lunch and wanted some bento then this is a good place to go. Service is quick and friendly staff.

This cafe offers great sushi in my opinion and is far more favourable than other places, what lets it down is that if you want Chicken Katsu you have to have it with rice and pay £6+ for it. They used to sell it separately but it was obviously very popular and they realised they could make more money by... More

Have been going to this restaurant a few times. After my 15th time at this restaurant, decided to eat some spicy noodles. Have tried before in the same restaurant, was very good. Gave the first try, my god, how spicy!! I love spicy things and I am very tolerant but this time I could't even eat! After trying, decided to... More

Often frequent this establishment after work for dinner, to be honest I usually go for the Katsu curry and have to be disappointed with this dish. Prices are okay, you get a huge portion for 6 quid! Tried some of the sides but wasn't that impressed, spring rolls were alittle soggy and breaded prawns were very bready with not a... More

Kokoro became a weekly stop for me whilst living in Brighton. It's the perfect fast food meal for when you need a quick bite, and it doesn't leave you full of self loathing like a trip to the golden arches might. It's all about the chicken katsu curry. Pure perfection in a styrofoam container. Filling and just the right amount... More

Came here for an afternoon snack. Got the vegetarian spring rolls which tasted amazing, however, the 'vegetable' yakisoba was so tasteless, cold and had no vegetables in it, apart from one slice of onion. Was disappointed. The service was ok. Maybe will try again.

Thank lunaeme
