“Absolutely Great Hibacchi”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 14, 2013

This was my first visit to Koto and I am already making plans to come back again. I enjoy hibacchi restaurants. Two weeks ago I visited Benihana which I enjoyed and reviewed on Tripadvisor. Koto is much better. The food is excellent, the service was excellent and the prices are excellent. The habacchi chefs here put on a great show. The servings are humongous. I can't wait to come back!

“Good food but rude”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 25, 2013 via mobile

I was just at koto last night with a friend around 9:30 ish for a late dinner food was good but our waitress Lynn was rude and rushed us. We asked for a minute to figure out what we had wanted and I kid you not she was back in less than 2 minutes. Then when it was time to pay we were still eating and she threw the bill on the table and walked away. I'm sorry I usually am very easy going but this was very unacceptable

“great place for sushi”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 22, 2013

Most week nights this place is empty. No lines, great sushi prices, and good food. THe hibachi fills up on the weekends but you can make reservations. The lunch specials are great too

“Nice Surprise in Jackson, NJ”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 19, 2013 via mobile

Jackson, NJ is not exactly a hotbed for fine cuisine, but Koto is an exception to the rule.
The sushi is nicely prepared, and the service is remarkably friendly.
The hibachi section can be very lively, but folks desiring a quiet and romantic evening will be pleased with the candle lit tables, which are set at a good distance from the hibachi. While the menu is not extraordinarily extensive, discerning diners are sure to find a dish that is pleasing.
My wife and I consider Koto to be one our favorite destinations in Ocean County.
