Kotobuki is one of my favorite sushi spots, however be prepared to wait for a VERY long time! it's near other bars so easy to grab a drink and come back. Their "Happy Roll" and "Spicy Crunchy Tuna" are two of my favs. Service is good and pricing is fair for a nicer japanese spot in the heart of the... More

Kotobuki is consistently delicious. Small restaurant with close tables but once you are served you forget it all as its top shelf. Always a bit of a wait but one of Babylons finest sushi restaurants.

I brought my wife to this place for a night out, am I'm glad I did. It was a busy night, but we only needed a table for 2, so we were seated immediately. This is a traditional Japanese Sushi restaurant that is far above other sushi restaurants. The sushi and sashimi is sliced thicker than most other places. The... More

Let me first start out by saying that the fish is super fresh and isn't that what you are really looking for? With that being said everything else was just meh. I have been a patron of all the Kotobuki locations for many years. Last night we chose to sit in at the Deer Park location and ordered the Sushi... More

The food is wonderful and always fresh. The service is more than adequate. The only reason I rated it 4 stars and not 5 is because the tables are crammed together and it's difficult to talk without an audience. It's also difficult to maneuver through the dining area. The tuna carpaccio is delicious.

Went for dinner with wife and kids. It was far better than many of the best sushi restaurants that I have been to in NY or anywhere. I wish that I lived closer so I could try everything!

I always enjoy the food and the experience at Kotobuki. No reservations, so go early or prepare to wait. I enjoy their spicy tuna pizza - crunchy rice & nori crust topped w/ layers of spicy tuna & shredded crab salad w/ tobiko, soy-mayo, scallions, it is really good. Also, it is one of the few places that serve butter... More
