Though this may not look like much from the outside, the food was some of the best ever. Can't wait to go back on my next trip to Long Island to continue to work my way through the entire menu.

Went to kotobuki for lunch. The food was excellent. It was really busy, so service was not optimal. If you want the freshest sushi in Long Island, go here.

On multiple occasions I've either been given the wrong carryout order or items were missing. The servers act as if you're doing them a favor coming to their establishment. The sushi is good, but not worth the attitude you get. My advice, go to Aji.

Service is swift, food is exceptional, large menu is fairly diversified. The wait staff is very professional and the restaurant is very clean. Occasionally there are long lines since the restaurant is so popular.

If you want the best and freshest fish this is the place to go. We've been going here close to 15 years and have never had a bad meal. We,ve tried other places but none compare

Probably the first sushi restaurant in the area. Terrific fresh sushi, shashimi, and inventive rolls. Get there early or you'll wait a while. Has a branch in Roslyn, but this is better. Like all sushi restaurants, expensive.

Those prices on trip adviser are incorrect. the sushi/sashimi ala carter is much higher on the real menu. They do have some good lunch specials for sashimi or sushi around $15 but its more at dinner -
