“Excellent Japanese food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 18, 2012

When I was working, we took our Japanese customers here. I also spent a great deal of time in Japan - and this restuarant is managed by Japanese people. The food is excellent, and reminds me of many good meals that I've had in Japan. The service is always very good - and they treat you like family. For people who like authentic Japanese food, they should not miss it.

“Modest setting for excellent cuisine and atmosphere.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 18, 2011

On Sunday, November 6, we traveled from Wisconsin to Federal Way, WA to visit my sister and her husband. Our first meal to share with them upon arrival is always at Koharu's due to the authentic atmosphere and terrific cuisine prepared by an excellent chef and served by a kind and generous staff. This trip was no exception. From the wonderal selection of appetizers and entrees we chose our favorites: deep fried oysters that are so crisp and tasty without a hint of grease, age dashi tofu with the deeply flavored broth, teriyaki salmon so tender and sweet, tempura shrimp very light and crisp, and especially for my brother-in-law, makunouchi (dinner bento box). Whether you enjoy sushi (chef is a master) or traditional favorites, this is the place to make you smile! Enjoy the warmth of their hospitality and fine cuisine at excellent prices in a casual yet elegant atmosphere. Your family and friends will thank you for finding this gem!

“Been going for over 6 years and will for at least that many more.”

Not to sound like a cliche, but one of the best restaurants in the area. Food, service, menu and venue are first class.
