While it has been there for years, this Japanese Restaurant continues to deliver a wide range of very good Japanese food. Even the red bean ice cream gets a special thimbs up as does the delicate tempura and excellent gyoza.

Kotobuki is the best sushi restaurant we've found in Stamford. Far more authentic than others, the sushi is fresh and delicious. They have a good range of food for non-sushi eaters plus the vegetarian options are well thought out and equally good. We eat there...More
