Nice Ambience
Expensive wine list which is certainly over the top in terms of price (offensive)
Lovely Japanese cuisine which is reasonably priced

Food was nice. Staff were nice. Think if we came back we would do the tepanyaki experience. The wine list was very poorly curated and the markup was 4x plus. This was a bit of a let down for us

My gosh this place was beautiful! We came here for our wedding anniversary and it didn’t disappoint. Seated infront of the window overlooking the river and next to the restaurants pond the place felt magical.
We had the set menu as we like to try as much food as we can and everything was perfect! We will be back!

All the dishes we ordered were excellent and carefully prepared and served. The sushis and sashimis were great and fresh and the grilled toothfish I ordered was just awesome.
Mikiko's service was first class as she was very attentionate, prompt and discrete to our needs especially with two young children. I highly recommend her to help make our lunch experience memorable.

Overpriced for value for money. Wine is marked up by 4x what you pay in BWS. For the price, I would have expected better value for wine selection.

Expected a much more entertaining and skilled experience from the Teppanyaki chef for the price we paid per head. The entire experience was over in less than an hour. Very disappointing.
The service overall was very good and the food was exceptional.

We dined in a private room which had a tepinyaki table with a private chef (Kevin). The food was beautiful prepared and presented and the chef was highly engaging and fun to have in the room. This was a very special night and we thoroughly enjoyed the experience and the wonderful foo. The lobster tempura was a highlight.

Went to Koko for a dinner with my girlfriend and was extremely happy with the restaurant. The food was amazing and the layout was very good. Had a great city view at night. Staff were very friendly and accommodating. Would highly recommend for people to go here especially for special occasions or date nights.
