This is an excellent place for the freshest sushi served with warm rice. Your order is made and delivered to you immediately. You will have a hard time finding better sushi in Halifax.

Everything we ordered was fresh and delicious. The spicy salmon was incredible - with depth to its spicy sauce! Sweet potato tempura and fresh scallops were a hit for our table. I've never seen our three year old inhale sushi at the rate she did...More

I was in Japan for 5 yrs. Folks, this restaurant is the real deal. The believe is that the rice makes or breaks sushi. Ko-Do's rice preparation and texture is perfection. The owner/chef and staff, who are Japanese, are so welcoming you feel at home....More

I never even heard of Ko-Doraku until I started working in the business tower next to it. It is the best sushi in Halifax, hands down. I have only been to the 1949 Upper Water St. location, but the staff are so friendly and genuine...More

Dropped in to their new location on Saturday. This is about 50 feet from the old one. The Chef was there and has a passion about the food he is serving. Sushi was very good and the warm rice makes it even better. Prices are...More

This little place is unassumingly tucked in the bottom floor food court of Spring Garden Place. One of the few sushi restaurants in the city that is staffed by Japanese cooks, Ko-Doraku offers quick and affordable high-quality sushi. What their menu lacks in breadth compared...More
