IMPROVED since last year even better (was already good) food, better iluminations, flow and atmosphere. Lots of Swedish people hang out here, actually all over Santa Teresa. The same bumpy road and still so worth it. Fantastic staff with a top level attitude. Next year - we will be seated again for more of the Kojis rolls, delicious tempura, finger... More

This place lived up to the hype! The most amazing sushi - we went twice in one week. The cost was similar to North America but worth every penny. The entire place is this cute wooden structure with beautiful candles and chalk board menus. Had a beachy feel that was casual and laid back that you want in this little... More

From the moment you set out for this incredible spot you´ll know it´s special. It´s location is secluded and a bit of a drive, and it is worth it. The ambiance, great staff, amazing cocktails and ridiculously delicious, fresh sushi will have you telling your friends all about your dinner.

Wow! It's quite the experience. There are not words to adequately describe it. The food, ambiance, and service are all outstanding! Do not skip this place while in Santa Teresa.

Dined there on our first night at Santa Teresa and right away knew we would not find a better place to eat. Ordered a large assortment of dishes from sushi to chicken and fish and all of them were prepared and presented to perfection. For dessert you have to try the banana flambé. Service was very friendly. A must if... More

I'm from Vancouver, and I know great sushi - this is maybe the BEST I've ever had. Every single thing we ordered was fantastic. The restaurant is beautiful, the service is outstanding and the food could rival any Nobu. I will come back again and again.

Excellent Japanese, could compete with any Nobu on this planet! Beautiful and tanned waitresses are providing an attentive service in this layed back restaurant owned and run by a japanses chef.

The food is incredible. The setting is lovely and the service fantastic. Cannot speak highly enough of this place. Try the fried rice (to die for) and the sauteed veggies (the best I've had).

We've been big fans of Koji's since he opened. For us, no trip to Santa Teresa is complete without at least one (but preferably two) dinner at Koji's. We appreciate the fact that Koji is consistently working to improve his restaurant as well as add to the depth of his menu, without sacrificing quality. It almost goes without saying that... More
