Outstanding value!

The sushi is consistantly excellent and although it is not inexpensive the quality and the portions combine to provide an excellent value.

The sushi is consistantly excellent and although it is not inexpensive the quality and the portions combine to provide an excellent value. My last visit was two nights ago but I've eaten here dozens of times over the years. One other note is that it is not a private setting. The tables are very close together.

I have tried other sushi restaurants, but time and again, I return to Kotobuki. And I think I've given up on the other local sushi restaurants..other reviews claim other sushi places are good or better. NOT TRUE!! Kotobuki's sushi is always fresh and delicious. And if you're dining in, you won't want to miss the garlic fried oysters. The tuna... More

I went to Kotobuki on the last night of my business trip since it was a top rated restaurant in Hauppauge. My experience was consistent with the many rave reviews I've seen on TripAdvisor. The sushi was fresh and melted in my mouth. I also got some tempura, which was really good (not quite as good as the sushi, but... More

Kotobuki for me is the Gold Standard for Sushi/Sashimi on the Island. There are several great sushi restaurants nearby - but I always wind up comparing those meals to what I had at Kotobuki - and Kotobuki wins almost all the time! The one negative here is the physical size of the room and its inability to handle the size... More

First time dining here. Friends rave about it and I can see why. Very fresh sushi, cut a little generously, fresh daikon, and the only sushi restaurant on LI that actually seasons the rice-much more authentic and tasty. Huge menu and cooked items too. Decor nicer than expected. Prompt and attentive service, but very crowded, even on a weekday lunch.... More

I love Kotobuki. They have the best tuna advacado salad. Try the new rolls on the menu. This restaurant needs to be larger. It get annoying to wait so long.

They don't take reservations but when you get in, you will be treated to the freshest sushi ever. I'm here at least twice a week...

I grew up coming to this place. When I first was here, it was only half the size and always had a huge line. This was over 15 years ago. Today, this is still my first stop when I visit home. I have lived in Europe, the Southwest, the Southeast and now Florida and have not come along another sushi... More

I like sushi, and have had some of the best in New York city. If you're looking for sushi on Long Island, there is no other place to do but to Kotobuki's. The fish is always fresh and masterfully prepared. The service staff is attentive. And, the price is right. I'm not giving too many points to atmosphere because when... More
