I've been to both Kokoros in brighton and i have to say i just love them both.. They're quick and easy and it's fast japanese food! whats better? I usually go for the Chicken katsu curry or the katsu sushi! it's so cheap for the massive portion you get. I've been to multiple japanese joints around brighton and this is... More

Went for lunch in the Brighton restaurant and my feet were sticking to the floor and then when we went to sit down upstairs, the surfaces were disgusting and sticky. The food I had was put in a microwave and was luke-warm and soggy. Went into the toilet and the toilet seat had come off and had been left in... More

I don't like microwaving food so I CERTAINLY don't expect to be eating it when I am paying to eat from a restaurant. I ordered a Teriyaki Salmon to takeaway with noodles. Noodled went into the tub and then were nuked for 60 seconds. Then the salmon went on. Went back to my office 2 minutes away to eat it.... More

Kokoro go through phases, portion sizes and quality of food flux throughout the year. While the food is tasty, it still has a hint of 'quick cuisine'. Having recently opened new larger premises in the town centre, the queues can often be a deterrent. Perfectly suited for a bit to eat on your lunch break or a quick fix, but... More

popped in for lunch with my daughter last week for lunch and had the chicken katsu and teriyaki salmon- both were tasty and the portion size for the regular was really good. Has a side of salmon roll sushi that we very reasonably priced. No frills but we will be back.

I have been buying food from there at least once a month since a year ago and it has always been lovely and good value for money. Until about 2 months ago, when I notice that the box looks very very slightly smaller. This wouldn't be the end of the world, except that they have also started not filling it... More

There has been a branch of Kokoro in Brighton for quite a while, but it relocated to its current premises earlier this year. Kokoro is fairly similar to the Wasabi chain, serving both sushi and hot food, to eat in (buy at the counter than find a table) or take away. I haven't tried Kokoro's sushi, but the hot food...
