One of the best japanese cuisine of Brasilia

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. As a resident of Brasilia and a sushi lover, I can't spend more than a few weeks away from this place. Be... More

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.

It's a very busy restaurant during the whole week but it has a very nice atmosphere. The best thing to do is make a reservation (3346-9668) The food is very nice and fresh. I recommend it but the most important thing is: make a reservation to avoid the hassle to wait for so long.

The atmosphere is quite pleasant. The place is a bit small so sometimes you have to wait a few minutes to get in, but I've personally never had to wait too long. The inside is pleasing to the eyes to say the least and there is no feeling of being cramped. It is also always a pleasant temperature inside the... More

I was there with family and friends. It is a great sushi place and if you like the hot food I suggest a Tanindon. We were a large group (11) and ordered two portions of gyoza, kappamaki, missô soup, one Tanindon, a yakissoba and tho sushi boats "combinado". It was great. The price is a bit high, but fair for...

Staff is the same of the former best Japanese in Brasilia called Kosui. Kosui had a prettier space, a real Japanese style. Howver, New Koto kept the quality the of the food. Everything is great.

The best Japanese restaurant of Brasília. Traditional. Great variety of sakes. The best dish was an entré, Hotogai. A whole dinner, with entrés and sake, was R$ 280 for two.
