This was the first sushi bar I found in Nashville when I first moved here in the the early 80's. I have visited them many, many times in all of their locations over the years. Without exception the quality of their food has been

I have been going to Koto for great japanese food for many years. I have been fortunate to be able to have had sushi in many areas of the country and still can't wait to come home to Koto. The rolls are always outstanding and I find the bento boxes and shashimi to be the same. Haji the owner is the coolest guy in town and Song Mi his wife is beautiful and sweet. If you haven't had the opportunity to patronize this downtown family run establishment, JUST GO!

Pros: Best crunchy shrimp rolls EVER!

NON-FOOD RELATED:----------
NO PARKING! but, the place is very well kept and they are very friendly - nice atmosphere. Prices aren't bad. Expect $12-$15 for a main combo or dish and anywhere between $2-$6 for sushi. If you order a main dish, the food comes out in waves, at a very nice tempo. Refills were never a problem, and I was with 5 people. Bathrooms were particularly stellar. Again, great date joint.

FOOD:------------
I attended for the sushi, mainly, but ended up getting a main dish (which includes salad, soup, rice, and on certain combos, a sushi roll - great deal!) as well. Drinks tasted great (very important). Miso soup was great. The sushi was very good, presented very well, and you get 6pcs. to a roll and 2pcs. to nigiri - all in all, about a 7 of 10. Sadly though, the main dishes weren't that outstanding, with chicken & beef teriyaki not quite "there", and even the bulgolgi was lacking somewhat. EXCEPTION! The tofu, main dish (forget which combo) was great!

OVERALL:-----------------------
Would I go back? Yes, and would get the tofu and sushi. I would probably stay away from the chicken and beef. However, you get lots of food for the price. My girlfriend and I paid about $37.00 after everything and was VERY full.

Pros: Service, Price, Tofu, Sushi

Cons: Main dishes, parking

Editorial from

Hajime "Haji" and Songmi Keruma opened Koto in downtown Nashville in 1985. In the years since, Koto's top-flight rolls seem to have only gotten better. Tuck into delicacies a cut above the usual sushi fare as well as several rolls named…
