Kotetsu Restaurant on Lazimpat is a real treat for Japanese food lovers. Everything from Sushi, Sashimi, Tempura to Miso soup is delicious and super fresh! Great location and a nice ambience makes a visit very worthwhile!

Re-located this year in the yet to be completed Ambassador Hotel in central Kathmandu, this casual Japanese restaurant provides excellent dining. Many options are available and I found the sashimi and tempura prawns to be superb. Well worth a visit!

We ordered tempura, spicy tuna rolls, some other roll with lots of different ingredients, teppanyaki... And loved it all but must say most impressed by sushis: great ingredients, fresh, and just the right amount of rice.
