“The Best Japanese Food On Samui”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 23, 2014

I have visited Koburi on five occasions since it opened and it has delivered on every visit.

Koburi sits on a side street in Meanam (walking street) and has a modern well lit exterior with solid wooden tables and benches on the inside.

The staff are so very friendly and make sure that you have everything you would need and always with a warm smile.

Japanese food on Samui island has found a new home, the food here has never failed to impress me. The little treat to start whether that be the white radish and squid or the Japanese potato salad is always a fine start. Everything here from the sushi and super fresh sashimi to their signature sizzle plates is always well presented on beautiful crockery, seasoned well and plentiful in size.

Having eaten at all of Samui's Japanese restaurants I can that for me this is the best, a complete package with no faults. It's fair to say I am a big fan of what they are doing at Koburi. A must visit on Samui.

“Best sushi this side of Japan!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 16, 2014

I've been traveling for the past 5 wks with little to no sushi selection. This all changed upon stumbling upon this restaurant. Great food, great drinks, great staff! Highly recommend to anyone taking a night off from the local Thai cuisine! Fun environment that will not disappoint, make sure to at least taste the Plum Liquor, you'll be ordering a glass after the first taste.

“Amazing sushi and warm welcome”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 14, 2014

We had a great meal here. If you like sushi it's definitely the place to come. Everything was very fresh and beautifully presented. We particularly liked the scallop and mackerel sashimi, which we'd never had before. The green tea panna cotta was amazing too. The service was really friendly and the prices reasonable. We will definitely try to come back again before we leave.
