Simply put, the best sushi I have had in my life. However, it took us 4 days to locate the restaurant, because there is no sign. The service was friendly and tentative and the food was exceptional and not overpriced. The ambiance was also neat with outdoor seating and bistro lighting in the evening.

AMAZING sushi, great quality, and very fresh. The ambiance is beautiful. It is all outside with hundreds of white lights and candles. Very enjoyable dinner.

This was a real treat. Such good sushi. Not too many veggie options but what I had was really tasty and my friends praised all their different types of sushis. A little bit more of a high end restaurant but well worth it

The ambiance is great, the outdoor set up and candles are pretty. The menu is mainly tuna and shrimp. Service and food both take a very long time. Sushi was good but otherwise food was just ok. The banana flambé was amazing. House red wines were drinkable, but no better. Total before tip was $114. This included an unspecified 10%... More

I've been here twice for dinner. Delicious food, well-presented, both times. Great staff. Very buzzy atmosphere. Love it. And surprisingly for such good food, not expensive.

Avoid avoid avoid. Most overpriced,poor food, no atmosphere. Small portions, the rice sucked. No present just a sad ripoff.

Koji's offers a relaxed enjoyable open air retreat off the busy main street of Santa Teresa. It was a perfect setting for our last night in town. The menu offered many delicious options. I was happy with all our choices. Cocktails were good as well. The wait staff was attentive but not overly so. Appreciate the parking in the lot... More

Get the Koji roll, and the banana flambé!!! We love Sushi and we love Koji's. Tried Katana but wasn't impressed, even though trip adviser had Katana as #1.

Headline due to our own drive out to Hermosa Beach area to revisit Koji. They aren't open Tuesday night, it seems. But we headed back Wednesday and loved it just as much as always. Excellent fresh sushi in a pretty twinkle-lit garden atmosphere. Their move into town provided them a lot more space and their own parking lot. They're located... More
