Their sashimi / sushi nigiri is always so fresh.
Favourite is Agadashi tofu.
Reasonably priced for the quality.
Love the authentic nature of ordering on iPads!

Everything was fine til near the end of the meal
I had put birthday as occasion on the app
I thought the app would have told the restaurant to have a small cake ready
It was embarrassing
please upgrade options to include cake selection
Thank you.

My family loves eating at this restaurant. One of the best Japanese in the area. Food is great and very friendly customer service. Family and child friendly. My children always want to come to Kokoroya to celebrate our special days. Keep up the good work. I would definitely recommend this place to everyone.

Whilst the staff where great in service, the overall dining experience was noisy due to the kids play area and amount of families dining. Additionally, the food was over priced in my opinion and not worth it given the atmosphere of the restaurant and the quality of the food

Food was truly amazing and we did not feel rushed to leave. However it felt a bit squashy (though to clarify, this did not negatively affect my ability to maintain a conversation at our table, that is, it wasn’t excessively loud, just cramped). If you’re into that type of ambience then it’s not a problem.

We loved our meal at Kokoroya. Having lived in Japan for over 5 years we really miss it and this place brought us right back. We loved the Japanese greeting as you walked in the door. The food was really lovely, quick, friendly service. Quality food and good value for money. BYO wine is good too. We will definitely be back.

We used to be regulars here for many years when they first opened and the food as always has been very good. Having gone back the other night for the first time in 3 years, there was definitely change. The food was still good but very slow to arrive once we ordered from the ipads. The reason is that they do a lot of takeout/uber eats. This tends to slow down the food for the tables. Service was with a smile but also slow to clear tables. We had to help ourselves to a table where there was cutlery, crockery and napkins. I certainly did not expect this. Especially since the food here is not that cheap either.
