This restaurant has been in Campbell River a long time. They have great food and service. I find them a little slow on weekends, only because their really busy.I also find it expensive . This is my 3rd favourite place to eat sushi ( 1st-Takao's Kitchen 2nd -Wasabiya Japanese )

it's slow but classic food. If you would like pure traditional sushi, this is your destination.xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

I should start by saying that my wife and I are not sushi experts in any way. In fact, this was our first sushi experience and we loved it. The (very helpful) waitress suggested a few things when we told her we were newby's. The meal was excellent. Even the tea was great! The restaurant was clean, the service good... More

The service was enthusiastic . We had lunch there and ordering bento boxes. The food was very average and lacked the flavours that genuine asian cuisine has.

Not sure why this has a 4 star review here. I get better sushi inland Canada where there is no access to water. Horribly overpriced and terrible quality. Final Thoughts: I would not go back here even if somone else was buying.

Owner runs this restaurant and stays on top of everything. He also makes the sushi himself. Very experienced. Been in business for over 20 years. A real treat.

Always fresh, always slow, but always very good. We go here more for lunch than for dinner and have never had a bad meal. Ever. They have the best tempura udon soup!

I like that its always the same friendly staff that greet you when you arrive. They take lots of pride in the food they serve and I personally think its the best sushi in town. Sometimes there is a bit of a wait for food but its worth it. Atmosphere is great too.

I have not been back to Koto's for 10 years, but I still consider it the best japanese restaurant ever! I have tried many, many japanese restaurants but none have lived up to the experiences I've had at Koto's. My favourite was always the Campbell River roll and also their udon soups. I have had good sushi in other restaurants,... More
