Good sushi. The slices were a bit thinner than my usual sushi restaurant. The place had a funny smell to it (maybe cleaning solution). Fast service. Clean dining area.

This place has good sushi and good service - I rated 3 stars because prices are average as well as ambience and décor. Service was good - people were attentive and fast. Good selection of food - we got sushi, sashimi, teriyaki bento box and gyoza ("potstickers") This is a great place to drop into if you are in the... More

I used to go there every week for lunch. The attendance is good, price is affordable, food is fresh and well prepared. I really like to eat there.

We have been going to Koto for over 15 years. The sushi is always fresh and the staff are welcoming and attentive. The shopping center where it is located is currently getting a much needed face lift. Parking at lunch can be tricky due to several popular places there. Many people walk from surrounding businesses which helps. Their lunch specials... More

The saba (mackeral) is outstanding and reasonably priced at $7.95. Sushi is fresh...why go anywhere else. This is a real gem and worth the visit. Koto is highly recommended. I got my food to go. I try to visit Koto every time I go to Houston as it is very authentic in taste to food you would get in Japan.

Hadn't craved sushi in a while and was looking for a new place. After looking at a few reiviews we narrowed it down to three places and decided on this at the last moment. We were headed to the movies and were in a little bit of a rush. It took longer than most other sushi places and there was... More

I have had some solid success with my restaurant choices in the last few months, but I guess my luck had to run out at some point. When it comes to Japanese food, my favorite dish is Katsu Don. I have yet to find a place that makes it as good what I remember from my trip to Japan. There... More

Koto is a great restaurant. My family and I enjoyed a great lunch. Our daughters had beef teriyaki. We had lots of exquisite sushi. You have to try the caterpillar roll and the lobster roll.

We went to Koto to celebrate a Masters graduation. We enjoyed a great time, and had great sushi. Every single plate is delicious, and for kids you may order bento boxes.

I've been going to Koto for more than 10 years now. When I first started going there, I lived in the area, and went weekly. The food was great, the staff knew me by name, It changed ownership and started to decline, and then I moved out of the immediate area. I went a couple times after that, and after... More
