Great News! Kokoro is back! They reopened last week. The best home style Japanese food. The menu is slightly different, but still fantastic. Lunch hours only, 11-3:30, Mon-Sat. Japanese food lovers rejoice!!

Heavenly just about anything, had tried just about everything on the menu before it closed by going with various friends and eating off one another's plate. We all pray in the future this place reopens to delight our taste buds again!

Drove all the way from Utah and picked this place over all the resturaunts in town and it was closed so staff could have a break. Bummer. The vietnamese place across the street was amazing though!

Food is great and portion is adequate. Only downside is the small restaurant size with inadequate seating. Nonetheless, people eat and go, so the wait is short.

Be patient, it is a small place and they are understaffed. Go early and big groups will be hard to seat. That being said, I had the most tastiest tonkatsu ramen with the freshest noodles and deep, savory broth with all the pork goodness that should come with it, including several slices of the most tender pork that tasted like...

Restaurant only had one person working the front counter and he obviously had no training. They were so crowded at 11:45 a cook put up the closed sign, which several people ignored. A few minutes later there were so many people in the room customers were standing by the walls, which was very uncomfortable for my friend and I since... More

We were really looking forward to visiting Kokoro today as our daughter loves Japanese food. Unfortunately, after driving across town we found the restaurant was closed on a Saturday evening. According to the note on the door, it was because their server (singular) was sick. Another car of people pulled up soon after us and left disappointed. For such a... More

I am a sushi fanatic and, coming from the East Coast, am accustomed to having some really great sushi restaurants. I'm starting to think I'm really spoiled by the amazing sushi restaurants I have in my hometown. After reading TA reviews wanted to check this place out. We went early knowing that it's a very small restaurant and fills up... More

I am not well experienced with Japanese food, but I have been going here for four years andit has been consistently delicous every time. I was in last night and I was pleased to see a long wait to sit in this tiny unassuming wonderful restaurant.

We tried this restaurant on my suggestion and I really wanted to like it. Possibly the dishes we tried were just not to our liking. The Sushi was delicious- Tempura California Roll and Spicy Mix Tuna Roll. The seaweed cabbage salad with miso dressing was also fantastic. I also loved the fact that hot green tea was free and that... More
