Great Sushi......Spoonfull of Happiness is a must even for all the unit haters out there!!!!.
I was recomended Koo by a co-worker and decided to read some reviews before I went. I stuck with alot of my traditional choices ( Shiro Maguro, suzuki and sake) and also ventured to try some of the better reviewed items (Best Roll , Spoonful of Happiness and flying kamakazi) and I also tried their baby butter fish as well which normally when I have had has been a little on the fishy side of taste but this one was just a little bland for my liking but it was still very fresh just like everything else I had ordered and the spoonfull of happiness was exactly that. This place will definitely be in my rotaion of sushi spots along with Okawa (Antioch, I from the East Bay) Ebisu and Blowfish.
Even If you dont like uni try the happiness and I gaurantee that you will enjoy it!!!!
Thanks Koo for your wonderful service I received and will definitely see you soon!!!!!
Yummy Sushi for a great price. They had fresh fish, fast service and excellent creative rolls. The ambiance is definitely romantic, more for couples on dates not for families or kids at all. The sushi bar only had room for 6 people so if you want to sit there, you should make reservations in advance. Their staff is friendly and fast - and sushi chefs were very attentive and although very diligent in making the sushi, also very quick. Also quite a good Sake list.
Excellent place for Japanese food/ Romantic ambience. i work near by and have always wanted to try this place because of the reviews. so i brought my boyfriend there the other night and really loved the food. the place is romantic but is also good for a group of 8. All the tables are candle lit which give this small cozy restaurant a nice ambience. Food is excellent from the sushi to the shared plates and price is not bad at all. They also give good portion sizes for their dishes. For the two of us it came to about 60 bucks. Can't wait to go back again to try the rest of the menu.
Realy good. this place is great but you must get seated at the sushi bar otherwise the main dining area looks boring. the food is remarkable with extra fresh items and creative chefs. i was happy to see a nice selection of sake yet nothing in comparision to Tsunami sushi but adeuqate. i will be back here
Excellent. To start, the service here is the best. Everyone is always genuine, friendly, and accommodating. They have the freshest sashimi I have ever tasted. In fact, I don't think I ever knew good sashimi until I had it at Koo. I always order the Chef's Choice plate.Their sushi rolls are creative and delicious. For a while, all I did was obssess over when I would visit their place again because their food was so good. They serve a chocolate lava cake that is scrumptious, in the shape of a paramid, tastes like quality, and cost $3!
The best. Whilst youre waiting in the street outside Ebisu for a table thats another hour away, why not reflect on the delicious sushi youre missing at KOO. The ambiance is classy and smart without being pretentious, and the rolls are creative not cliched. The fish is fresh and the tempura is light and delicious. Ebisu set the standard for sushi in the sunset and KOO meets and exceeds that challenge.
Delicious. The sushi is very fresh. I know there are lines at Ebisu, a few blocks away, but the sushi really is better here. Tried The Best roll w/crispy tempura and the spider roll was very crunchy too. The hamachi was tasty and unagi tender. Be sure to order the tuna tartare w/shrimp chips, always a standout. The service is very good, our water glass and tea cups were constantly filled. The green tea gelato was refreshing and a bargain for $3, 2 sm scoops of gelato and 2 sm butter/nut cookies. Expect to easily spend $60 for 2 w/o alcohol. If you arrive early at 6pm, you won't need reservations.
Great quality sushi and interesting creations. We appreciate the quality of their sushi and the interesting creations of fusion dishes. But, they lack a bit on the selections of sushi. Hope to see items such as real live scallops & live shrimp (not flash frozen), and more unusual fresh fish.
I went there with 3 of my girls after reading the review at citysearch. Definetely excellent. The tuna & salmon tartar is very good. We also had the nigiri fresh sushi like tuna, uni & hamachi, all fresh. The duck salad was small but yummy and it's not skimp on the meat.
One downside, it's kinda though to find parking. But everything else is great. Will definetely come back soon.
Excellent sushi, good portions for the price. I was here last saturday for my buddies birthday. Excellent service and excellent rolls and freshness of sushi. The "best roll" and "dynamite" hand roll are just amazing. You must get them. You get what you pay for at Koo.
