The food was delicious. The staff were very friendly towards us. The seafood was very fresh and the tea complimented the seafood very well. The restaurant was very aesthetically pleasing. I didn't really get the full experience as I left halfway but yeah. Very nice.

Small place but tastefully done and air conditioning as well. Wide selection of sake and beer in addition to sushi and sashimi, and the owner chef is right there to help with your selection. Reasonable prices. Had dinner one night and went back the next day to try the ramen for lunch which was excellent.

Found this place thanks to trip advisor, was not close to where I was staying but worth the journey to find it. Had some great sushi and beef. Chief was very friendly and enthusiastic about his food, a thoroughly enjoyable evening.

After having visited quite a few nice places on Samui for Japanese food we were really excited when visiting this place. Top tasty food - you can feel that someone's doing this with great attention for the quality. Had fluffy sushi with tender fish and crunchy vegetables - just as you would expect your favourite Sushi to be... Also a... More

Super Jap Food, location small but clean and cosy. Staff excellent . I don't know what to add more in order to be compliant with minimum 100 type required by tripadvisor.

Kobori has recently started opening for lunch [13.00-15.00] so it seemed time to give it a try. Fantastic - lots of authentic detail and food fresh and well made; traditional, green tea, tasty miso soup, proper strength wasabi, freshly made sushi selection and fuit The decor is simple but cosy and the temperature cool but not freezing which was welcome...

Me and my wife spent a very pleasant evening at Kobori Restaurant . The setting is informal yet studied in detail, with a pleasant atmosphere. The Japanese rigor is accompanied by the sympathetic verve of the manager, who is dressed in the typical samurai costume and did everything to please our child with toys and curiosities. The food : the... More

Very nice stuff and good sushi, not as good as in Japan but very solid. Price is OK for sushi. Visited on a Thursday where you also have a night market around.
