One of the few places in Suffolk County where you can find good-quality sushi, but the venue only has 60 seats so you need to reserve early. Try calling for take-out and you'll be lucky if they answer the phone. (I had to try 6 calls before they answered, and then had to wait 45 minutes when I went to... More

I have been going to Kotobuki for years. Every once in a while I will try sushi somewhere else and I am always disappointed. Due to the no reservation policy and crowds, my husband and I usually got there when it opens so we don't have to wait.

Kotobuki is a Long Island Gem! There are 3 locations and I've eaten at 2. The quality has been the same with many of the sushi chefs working all the locations. Sometimes there is a line waiting to get in when they open. This is the ONLY restaurant that I will wait to get a table (we actually prefer to... More

My family has enjoyed sushi for over 30 years in NY and around the USA. I have sampled sushi from Pike's Market in Seattle WA through Bar Harbor, ME. Kotobuki remains the BEST sushi ever! All three locations are unassuming with little more than a basic sushi sign out front. This sushi restaurant was the best kept secret until it... More

Kotobuki Hauppauge has excellent food! Their sushi is amazing, really! I am a big fan of this place, and have been coming here for many years, but I have a problem with this restaurant lately, and it has nothing to do with the food. As some have said, the place is crowded, the tables are way too close, most of... More

The best sushi restaurant on Long Island. The sauteed oysters are the best anywhere! All of the fish is fresh and served beautifully!

My husband and I frequent this restaurant (although they have 2 others). The sushi is wonderful! We have our signature dishes that are a must: Tuna and Avocado salad, Tuna carpaccio and then rolls. The restaurant is very small so it is loud at times and crowded but we usually prefer to sit at bar/counter area.

this was always the go to place, and had top notch sushi but they have slipped a bit, and others in the area like Nisen and Aji-53 are better
