Stumbled in on a quiet night and had a great experience. Both food and service were excellent. Make sure to get the matcha if you're into that sort of thing.

Perfect sushi and sashimi (we ordered tuna and salmon), tempura and great Japanese tea. You can easily customize the meal and the staff is very friendly and helpful. Highly recommended.

Actually the only good Japanese restaurant in Helsinki. Even though the sushi is good, try something else from the wonderful menu.

We booked for dinner before hand and had mentioned it was for a special anniversary, When we arrived we were shown to a special table that had been decorated with origami hearts and Christmas decorations, which was such a lovely thing to do.

After feeling nostalgic of our trip to Japan we tested several Japanese restaurant and only in this one we found the real taste of Tokyo streets. With enough variety on the menu to come back several times and bring friends along, impeccable service and welcoming atmosphere, there is no other place to go when looking for authentic Japanese experience.

It was very delicious lunch menu! and not only! But first time I came to Koto for lunch but was so pleased with the quality and taste of food that came there to dinner. I visited different restaurants in Helsinki, but prefer to dine just there. Highly recommend!

They are always smiling and have no problem changing their dishes/set-menu's to your liking without any extra charges. On this visit we had a guest who was... More

We picked this place for a pre-dinner snack, and had a positive experience: Friendly staff, tasty food and reasonable prices. When the kitchen was busy and we had to wait a little for the food, they gave us miso soup on the house. The futomaki was good, and they served generous portions.

The dinner service was fast and pleasant. They have a wide variety of Japanese dishes. The portions were massive and the food was excellent. We even received extra rice when we took leftovers with us.
