Now this is a place I enjoy eating. If you go, the hibatchi tables are where it's at. It takes your whole experience and makes it very entertaining. I've been three times and every chef that served us was friendly and welcoming! The quality of the food is great but the price is on the high side. This is a... More

This is a traditional "Chop 'N Watch" restaurant where the food is good and the show put on by the chef, cooking at your table, is most entertaining. It is great for special occasions.

Thanks, Koto for making the surprise dinner fantastic. Great food, fun chefs and a beautiful setting. The only thing. I would have changed is turn on the a/c in the party room BEFORE the cooking begins. We were a large group and the room was hot and steamy before dinner.

The food was spot on the chef was not to bad. (Have seen better) He need more practice on the hibachi. The waitress was always right there when you needed her. The main problem was that the hibachi seating area had steps and my wife is in a wheelchair.

I was very impressed from the moment we walk in the door. Service was prompt and we were seated right away. The chef was very entertaining and the food was excellent.

Since it was the end of exams, I decided to take my daughter for a nice Japanese hibachi lunch. The meal starts with miso soup and salad. While you enjoy that and an appetizer of sushi if you so choose (and I highly recommend), the very talented chef cooks your food in front of you. I picked scallops while my... More

We had 11 in our party so we were able to all squeeze to one side of the hibachi. The food was OK - typical japanese hibachi fare which I love. Others in our party selected non-hibachi items from the menu and they were all good. With only a couple of other people in the restaurant, I found it incredible... More

My wife and I were looking for a place to sit back and dine on well prepared Asian cuisine. This restaurant showed high TA ratings, so we gave it a try. We took a table instead of seating at a hibachi and soon realized people go here for the fun of watching the chef, which turns out to involve making... More

This is probably the best sushi you'll find in the Groton area. I've eaten at the couple other sushi restaurants around. It tastes pretty good and I've never gotten sick from eating here. I lived in Japan and love sushi, so I know good sushi when I eat it. The service is pretty good and the people are friendly.

I've been to koto numerous times and came here last year for my birthday. Without me asking, they put my party in the private room because I had so many people and it was great. I made a reservation last night for my boyfriends birthday for 25 people. I even called to confirm the reservation so through two phone calls... More
