We have eaten out each night since being in Santa Teresa and although it's not cheap here, it's not crazy expensive either. The sushi at Koji's is very good and the ambiance is fabulous, but grief, it's very expensive. We live in DC where things are very expensive.

If you like Costa Rican food and sushi and a mixed way, this is that place for you! It's hard to choose from the large meny! Choose different things and share! You want to taste everything!

The food is excellent but the location is not optimal if you stay in Santa Teresa. You need to go by car. There is no gsm coverage in the area so you need to set a time with your taxi driver. The service is friendly but not the fastest.

Went with family. The setting is very nice and easily accomodates families, groups of friends or romantic couples. We shared 3 sushi rolls and 3 other dishes. The Crunch sushi was extraordinary. The two others (Rainbow and Caterpillar) were very nice. The grilled shrimps (although small) were extremely tasty. The Ginger Pork and the Sesame Tuna were very nice. The... More

***Make a reservation*** Popular, trendy, and off the beaten path, it's a bit of a production getting a seat but food was well worth it!

This was the best food I ate on my entire trip, and I hate sushi. The fried rice and chicken were both incredible and so, so flavorful! I would definitely recommend this place. Make a reservation and be sure to stop by an ATM before you go. Cash only.
