“AMAZING!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 10, 2013

So fresh & amazing. Great, inventive rolls. Nice people. So divine. Nice setting and super chill. All the locals gave it the thumbs up and I know why. There was a funny thing about having a reservation- which we kind of laughed off- but it was really solid.

“Beautiful sushi for beautiful people in Costa Rica”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

At first, we were a little skeptical of great Japanese food in an open air restaurant in the jungle in Costa Rica. However, we were totally wrong. The fish was so fresh that it made fish with which I was familiar taste like something totally new. They would erase specials off of the chalkboard when they ran out of that type of fish; there was obviously no type of fish just sitting around from previous days. The only thing I disliked about the food was that the bottled water we ordered did not come in a labeled bottle that was opened at the table; it came in an unmarked reusable glass bottle but we paid $7 for it... in no other restaurant in town did this happen.

Beyond the food, which was just really really great, my friend and I kept commenting on what a cool/chic scene there was at Koji's. It was definitely the coolest most sophisticated dinner restaurant at which we ate while in the Santa Teresa/Playa Hermosa/Mal Pais area. The waitresses were gorgeous, the people eating there was gorgeous, and the food was gorgeous. All of this added up to a great evening!
