Authentic Japanese atmosphere
Inside Koto Japanese Restaurant, you’ll be greeted by a hostess in traditional Japanese dress and escorted to a private tatami room or offered a seat at the exciting sushi bar. If you have to wait for a seat, you can relax with a cocktail on one of the couches in the front lounge.
Located in a heritage building just steps away from the Inner Harbour, the restaurant has lots of character. The space is decorated with tasteful, traditional Japanese art and lots of live plants and bamboo give the restaurant a fresh feel.
Extensive array of sushi and sashimi
If you’re a sushi virgin, no need to fret. Koto puts you at ease with its colourful menu that includes a detailed description of all the dishes. You can order individual sushi rolls and pieces of sashimi, or take advantage of Koto’s platters that allow you to try a few different things. The restaurant favours traditional sushi over experimental pieces, and uses only the finest, freshest fish from local waters.
Traditional Japanese choices
While many Japanese restaurants limit themselves to serving sushi, Koto is keen on sharing a number of other traditional dishes. At lunchtime, bento boxes are popular and range from basics like teriyaki chicken to more unique choices like salmon katsu. Koto’s donburi (rice bowls) are also a hit, and are best enjoyed with some tempura to start.
In the evening, adventurous diners opt for specialty dishes like sukiyaki (thinly sliced beef with vegetables), teriyaki steak and ginger pork.
