Really wonderful sushi but could not give 5 stars because of the slow service. It's really irritating when your waitress/waitresses keep walking past you but seem to avoid eye contact. We spent the whole evening trying to get someone's attention. It's such a shame because the food is fantastic.

Please do not leave Santa Teresa before coming here. His Japanese chef/owner/surfer came to Santa Teresa to get closer to the sea and that is what he will bring to your dish. Nothing fancy but fresh, honest, simple, delicious, elegant... It is not just a sushi restaurant. Great experience.

I think this might have been the best sushi I have ever eaten (and I live in NYC!). My boyfriend and I had a lovely dinner here. I recommend making a reservation, especially in the high season. We were looking to have a long dinner where courses were spread out and that's exactly what they gave us. Food comes quickly... More

Had a great dinner with my 2 Teenage daughters and my wife. The rolls were great, the sushi was fresh. Great looking professional staff. Service was quick, almost too quick... went there on rainy night during green season - short distance from Pranamar where we were staying. Tried other restaurants in area... should have come back to Koji's!! Were also... More

First of all, this is one of the few places in santa teresa where you will find a place that runs out of food. We ordered chicken and were surprised to hear that they "ran out". The place has an awful smell and the chairs are on rocks making it really uncomfortable to sit. Very slow service. And at the... More

We almost didn't make it here, being exhausted after the drive down. But I was determined, and my boyfriend was flexible...and we had an amazing night. We unknowingly showed up too early, so the staff pointed us in the direction of Playa Hermosa, which was a beautiful place to breathe and relax for a few minutes, watching the surfers in... More
