We have visited Santa Teresa, twice...and have eaten at Koji three times. I love this place. It is simply delicious, fresh and creative sushi...and their cooked dishes are amazing, too. I live in NY, work in Manhattan, and have access to the finest and freshest sushi anywhere outside of Japan...and Koji can stand up to anything that Manhattan offers. And... More

My husband and I really enjoy sushi but really haven't eaten a lot of it. We had dinner at Koji's with friends who consider themselves sushi aficionados as they live in a large city with some of the best sushi restuaurants in the world. We each ordered something different and split the entire meal. Everything was delicious and fresh and... More

Before we arrived in Santa Teresa several people recommended Koji's. I have to say the sushi is very good. You could really taste the quality of the fish and it's careful preparation. We each had a spicy tuna sushi roll, shared a pork appetizer and the tempura veggies, all of which I would recommend ordering. I had a juice and... More

If you've gotten this far, just make your reservation. Everything you've been reading is true (if it's good). It's the first reservation we make in Santa Teresa and one of our favorite Japanese places anywhere!

Surprising good sushi for such a distant location. We love the garden ambience, great beer, and sushi.

We went to Kojji a few nights ago with a group of six and just decided to post something as a recent negative post here on the service surely must be an outlier. Even the day after our visit our entire group (we are very well traveled) kept on talking about the unique experience and delicious food we had. Talk... More

Wonderful sushi along with other items. Great scene down the road from the main strip in Santa Theresa. It is busy, so make reservations but it is worth it. Big wooden tables outside, candles, it is a very cool scene too!

this place is a hidden gem. it is expensive but well worth the money and the drive. the little "house" it is situated at has huge trees with candles everywhere. The menu is huge and the waitstaff was so great with recommendations. the freshest fish!
