Make sure you have a reservation an arrive early since reservations expire at 7:30pm. Quality Japanese cuisine in the heart of Brazil. A must go for anyone visiting town. By the way, ask for the scallops!

When you step into a Japanese restaurant and it is full of Japanese clients, it's definitely a good sign! Go for it!

Anything you´d ordered here comes to make your senses party at the same time. Your eyes, you nose you stomach and even your pocket will enjoy it. The traditional japonese cuisine the food EXCELENT! Just one clue, arrive early use to be very crowed and they don´t accept reservation

Forget about Brazilian versions of Japanese dishes, like those junkie rolls with cream cheese. This is Japanese food as it is prepared in Japan.

Food is delicious, well prepared and well presented. It is more of tradicional Japanese culinary than fusion. Service is nice. Not unexpensive but it is worth every cent. Make reservations to avoid waiting.

I enjoy the ambiance and the meals. The sashimi was delicate and very tasty. Get there early for lunch because it is widely visited.

We miss this restaurant very much. A bit on the pricey side but well worth it. The tuna is always fresh and well-cut (which other restaurants in the city cannot boast of). For hot dishes, try the gyudon, chicken yakitori or beef teppanyaki. Everything we had over the two years we frequented this place was delicious. Eat here often enough... More

the food is good but to eat at home (as I wanted) you are obliged to go to the restaurant and wait for half an hour to have your food ready

New Koto is a traditional japanese cuisine restaurant where you will find both the best sushi in town as well as traditional japanese warm dishes (teishoku,yakissoba, udon) that you usually won't find in other japanese restaurants in town.

Traditional Japanese restaurant in Brasilia. Always fresh fish. Nothing new, just the same but perfect! Sapporo and Kirin included. Come early or make a reservation.
