Food is good here if you get what you ordered on a pick up. Call for a pickup order and get there to pick it up and it still takes 30 flipping minutes. It's like what the point of calling in ahead of time to order?? I don't get that!! Both of the ladies that helped me were on the... More

You must always remember you are here to fine. Don't be in a hurry or you will become angry. Service is slow but food is great. Love salad! Love rolls and the dinner choices. We come often just plan for a long relaxing evening.

The menu has changed a little with new owners, but it offers the same standard bento boxes for lunch. Service was average given the lunch crowd, which still fills the place up. We were able to be seated, even without reservations, so were in and out in an hour. Portions were good-sized.

Nes and Joey put out great food. Usually get it to go but always fun to sit at the bar and enjoy a good conversation. Highly recommend.

The place was crowded at lunch but the food was just above passable. The service was not great and the loud music doesn't appeal to this diner. I looked around and most of the people there were my age or older, electronica doesn't appeal to good digestion. We had a sushi combination and a bento and it was okay, when... More

Great selection of rolls. Come here often, as it is the favorite place of my teenagers. They love the baked rolls, with the sauce, such as Lion King, Bay Island and Jordan Roll. I prefer the Golden Gate roll (spicy tuna.) Always good and fresh.

Since the change of ownership several years back, this place has steadily lost its appeal. The service is consistently bad...we return because the sushi is still good, but quickly regret being there when we are ignored. On occasions ringing the service chime several times to no avail. New will resolution will have to be take out.

It's hard to find a good ethnic restaurant in this beautiful and wonderful area, but if you are in Salinas and looking for a good Japanese restaurant, I recommend Kokoro Sushi, specially during lunch. The food is fresh and the price is reasonable. We were there for lunch and three of us had the box lunch while the other had... More

I wasn't too sure about a sushi restaurant in Salinas but several of us went there anyway. We we not unhappy with our decision all. I had a Sapporo and we ordered a couple of appetizers, which were both very good. Our server was pleasant and very efficient. We were served a small salad and miso soup. After that I... More
