Very good service. They opened 15 min early today when they saw a lot of people waiting. Lunch specials are a bargain. Fish is fresh, probably helped by large volume of customers. Sign in the window says new owners soon (posted 8/10/16).

I eat lunch often at Kokoro's. Lots of food for the $$. Also a nice variety. A lunch special usually is meso soup, California rolls, rice, meat of choice, and salad. Under $10.00 including tip.

Food was good but nothing special to remember or talk about. Overall we would go back if we didn't have a place we like right now.

We love Kokoro! This is the restaurant my family wants to visit again and again! Fresh fish, refreshing salads, tasty chicken and beef dishes! This is a family owned business that cares about it's customers and has something for everyone! We are always happy with the selection - consistently great!

I wrote a simliar review for Kokoro last December on Yelp. Just returned to Lake Elsinore area to visit the in-laws. Kokoro has become our get-away Japanese cuisine place when I want to enjoy my favorite food. We stopped in on the way back from LAX with my son and husband last night. Early Friday night dinner. Gracious staff. EXCELLENT... More

The sushi is outstanding along with the tempura. The staff is very helpful in selecting sushi that will please your tastebuds. They always have great specials and lunch is quite reasonable.

I'm from the Bay Area so Dim Sum and Sushi are always on my list of cravings. Now that I've retired in Lake Elsinore, CA, restaurant sampling has been high on my list of leisure activities. Kokoro is open for lunch and for dinner with a menu full of great sushi. I went solo for a late lunch. The sashimi... More

I have been eating here for years. Every time me friends from the U.K. come over we make a point to eat here. The service is excellent and the sushi is the best quality. They have many different kinds of rolls, all very unique. The tempura is wonderful, I like to get the deep fried soft shell crab. Also the... More
