“Not Gourmet, but Good for Delicious and Quick Fix”
Reviewed July 12, 2011

Just like the name says, this place serves Quick, Delicious Japanese Food. If I lived closer, I would probably eat here at least once a week. The rice and meat bowls are flavorful and filling, the Edamame perfectly cooked and salted, and I really like the California rolls, especially the touch of Masago (flying fish roe) on the outside of the rolls. I always get an order of Inari, which are deep fried Tofu pockets filled with sushi rice; the tangy taste is very pleasing to me. The Miso soup has great flavor. In past visits we have had the Gyoza, the Shumai, the Curry, and all are excellent. Highly recommended for a quick lunch or dinner.

“Japanese food, casual sytle all around”
Reviewed April 18, 2011

This place is good if you are looking for somewhere for a kind of quick meal and with reasonable prices and good food.

The dishes live up to their fast name, this is not not fancy over the top Japanese food. It is simple in presentation yet good.

The Udon was tasty and hot....

“Meh, just your typical rice bowl. We'd like to see a little more meat in the Kokoro bowl.”

I absolutely LOVE Kokoro. Many different choices for different tastes. Portions are a bit small for the price, but restaurant is clean and staff is reasonably friendly. Has a drive-thru which is very convenient.
