We were dissapointed that the evening we visited there was no tuna, but I would rather have the freshest... read more

Read, believe and embark on your own traste sensations. This is the real deal. The restaurant is basic, bordering on rustic. The food is prime bordering on evil. It is outstanding and as my friend put it: everything tastes different. From the freshest fish ever served to the nicest chicken teriyaki. In an environment that is child adverse, they do... More

I've been visiting Santa Theresa for 6 seasons now and this was my first time at Kojis. We sampled 6 different sushi rolls with the veggie tempura, saki and banana dessert. I would have to say all the selections melt in your mouth and you will not be disappointed! Make a reservation if on busier days :)

My boyfriend and I just returned from a trip to Santa Teresa and we chose Koji for our last dinner. This was by far one of my favorite eateries and some of the best and freshest sushi I have ever had. I highly recommend this place for a night out and found the ambiance to make it even better.

We went to Koji twice while on vacation in Santa Teresa. Its off the beaten path (which is saying a lot in Santa Teresa) very close to Playa Hermosa. Koji opened the restaurant a few years ago and hails from Kobe, Japan. The menu, presented on a blackboard daily, showcases the freshest fish from the area, but also includes terriyaki... More

The sushi at Koji is definitely the best! All of it was so fresh and tasty. The drinks here were also great. I recommend the jalapeno margarita!!

This was the best sashimi I've ever had, hands down. Relaxed, but attentive, the service is great and the food fantastic. My wife has Celiac disease, so eating out requires some planning and explaining - we mentioned this at the time of the reservation and arrived to find our own GF chalkboard menu. : )

This restaurant was awesome - the type of place you would expect in a location like this - quaint, little white Christmas lights draped everywhere....The sushi was super fresh and the selection was huge. Staff / service amazing.

This is truly the best sushi I've had in my life!!! It just melts in your mouth. The restaurant itself is also very cozy and the staff is nice and efficient. Came back 3 times during my 2 week stay in Santa Theresa. My only regret is that I didn't find it earlier and had time to go there more.....

We went here on our first night and loved it so much we went back on our final night. We had beef tenderloin, sashimi, ginger pork and spicy tuna rolls. It is a bit of an effort to get to the place, but it is worth it as the food and drinks are of a very high quality. If you... More
