Let me begin by saying I adore the sister restaurant Kokoro Ramen, so paid my first visit to the Liffey Street cafe today. Okay, its clear that this version is more of a drop in or take out place, but I was a little disappointed today with my ramen. This was not because of the standard of food (which was... More

Went there for some take away sushi. The food there looked really fresh, and the sushis were very good quality for their price. Good place for a fast pickup.

We went to have a dinner and was such a good surprise. Everything was delicious and traditional from Asia. They have a machine which came from Japan to make the real noodles. The environment and staff was perfect.

I always eat in Kokoro Sushi and Bento when I am in Dublin. For me the best sushi in town, always fresh, served with tasty miso soup. The place is quite small, with only 3 tables and a few seats at the window's counter. You can eat there or buy as take away. I can truly recommend

Probably the best sushi you'll get out of a box. Blows supermarket sushi out of the water. The last 30 minutes before close there's a half price sale on sushi which is particularly good value for money.

This place offers 50% discount 30 mins before closing every day (6:30PM-7PM). They offer a variety of Bento boxes, good quality for money.

My husband and I eat ramen often, so we are very particular about it and I like to think we know good quality from bad. We both had the tonkatsu original here and we were blown away by how delicious it was! The broth is perfectly seasoned, though we did add fresh garlic for a little kick. The noodles were... More

I have been to a few of the Kokoro branches a couple of times. The curries are cheap and not very tasty in my opinion but the salmon sushi are good enough although the shrink wrapped ones don't look too appetising. The toilet is disgusting which is strange for a sushi place and the service isn't up to Yamamori or... More

It's almost a take away even if there are some tables inside. If I have to compare this sushi with the dublinese standard, I can say that it's maybe one of the best sushi in Dublin. For sure better than the vomiting Brazilian sushi fusion.
