My son and I grabbed some sushi to go since we were in the general vicinity and wanted to get elsewhere. We didn't have to wait too long, and the staff were friendly. The sushi was fine, but nothing spectacular. They sent along chopsticks, but...More

The service was excellent! We were seated right away, and we received our drinks quickly! The food was good, although the Shrimp tempura had a great flavor, there could have been more shrimp! Even though our meal was complete, our waitress kept serving us while...More

Very good noodle bowls here. The service is top notch and the building inside is like a lunch counter in Japan. Much better than the Pho's around Denver area. I've been here roughly 25 times and never had a bad experience. I highly recommend it!

Been here once. The food was good but the portions were small. After returning home we basically have to eat another meal.

Our family has eaten at Kokoro more than any restaurant in town. The most consistent reliable food and always tasty. Owners take meticulous care to assure customers are satisfied and sure to return. The menu is traditional Japanese cuisine and frequented by Japanese customers.

Great place for counter style rice bowls and ramen noodles. All the Ginger you can eat. My son from Texas said if they had these there, he'd eat there all the time. Try Gyoza and Saki specials when they're offering.
