Dinner with friends

Nice place to eat great Sushi. The beer and wine are all good as well. Went here for dinner with some friends and had a great time. We will go back again and again.

I've been eating here since 1998 and have found very few sushi restaurants that can compete with this one. Ingredients are of best quality, atmosphere is pleasant (quiet classical music). Staff is very friendly and courteous. Free WiFi.

We have now been twice in the last 2 months. We tried 3 dishes the first time-tempura shrimp appatizer, chicken fried rice & tempura shrimp roll. I informed the waiter that I am allergic to onions and they needed to be omitted & unfortunately, they still made the rice with onions & did not inform us. Thankfully I noticed a... More

The restaurant is fantastic, we always have good food and service. The atmosphere is calming and it's nice to be able to see your sushi being roll from the bar. This is by far the best sushi place in Toledo. The selection is large and the rolls are beautiful.

We come from the East Coast where primo sushi restaurants abound. Frankly I never thought we would get good sushi in landlocked Ohio. We were reluctant to try, but we were on our way to visit the Grandkids and were starving after a 10 hour drive. We accidentally saw the sign for Kotobuki and decided to give it a try.... More

We had a variety of appetizers, regular sushi, special sushi, and an entrée. While all dishes were OK, nothing stood out as anything special. We ordered food in stages, which was a mistake. Each time we ordered it took nearly an hour to be served those particular dishes. For a better Japanese restaurant in the Toledo area, try Nagoya in... More

Until last night the only sushi I'd ever had was avocado roll, and my daughter tells me that's not really sushi. It was a weekend night so the big hibachi places were out for dinner unless we wanted to wait a long time. Since all we wanted was sushi, we didn't want to wait. After a few searches, we settled...

This was our second visit and it will be our last. Restaurant was busy but we were seated quickly. We ordered promptly but an hour later still did not have our food. Waitress keep saying just a few more minutes. Finally asked for our bill for the tea and salad. Waitress said no charge. Manager or lead chef came rushing... More

We enjoy Kotbuki for its reliably good food and reasonable prices. We almost always order Dolset Bipimbob (sp). It's so good. The meals come with soup and salad.
