We attended as part of a meetup.com group on a Friday evening, and nearly filled this small place. The owner has relocated from his original, shabbier location to this space, and stays busy mostly serving downtown lunch customers. Our server got some of the orders wrong, but everything that anyone in my immediate party ordered was nicely prepared, tasty, and... More

I remember Koto Sushi from its previous location next to Hume-Fogg Academic High School and was pleased to visit it again when I was in town. The lunch deal is a great bargain for the quality and they still make good rolls. It gets busy during lunch...so be prepared to wait if you go between 12-2.

We saw this got high ratings on Urban Spoon, so decided to give it a try. It was well worth it. Dragon Roll and Rainbow Rolls were both very good.

I saw this restaurant on my morning walk and after checking reviews decided to try it for dinner. I was staying at Doubletree right across the street so it was SO convenient. I sat a a booth by myself, but it didn't feel awkward at all (as it can in some restaurants.) The sushi was very good and fresh. Had... More

There is a great variety of sushi on the menu. I had the Yummi roll. It came out a little different than the menu description, but no matter, it was great. The biggest problem here was that no matter how many times I asked for a glass of water (must have been 4) ... it didn't come until the check... More

Trying someplace a bit different, we went last night to Koto Sushi Bar on Union Street in downtown Nashville. What a great find...In had the spicy chicken and a spicy salmon roll and it was the best I have ever had. 5 thumbs up for this wonderful little quaint place on Union.

I came in and because I was by myself, I was sat behind a divider by the door. They sat me here twice... it was pretty rude but it amused me. But the sushi is very good. I came here for lunch and then dinner another evening. After eating tons of fried food in Nashville I was needing something a... More

It was quite busy at lunch but we do not regret because of the quality of food even if the service has up and down. If you stick to the lunch options prices are ver attractive. I definitely recommend it.

Went to this restaurant two nights in a row. The sushi is excellent, lots of choices. They also have a full menu for folks who prefer their fish cooked. Great Sake, laid back atmosphere.
