Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Always consistently good. Koto is my magnet 🧲. I have been going regularly with a pal for 3+ years now.. Food,service and value second to none. Love all the staff and Jeff, the boss is so down to earth. Chef's oblige and make adjustments to...your meal on request. Good wine list, full bar and cocktails menu. The only reason I go elsewhere is not to be a boring auld fart!! Many Restaurants in Cork are closing down due to exorbitant costs. We need to keep supporting Jeff and his crew. Anyone saying prices are high, they are no higher than any other good quality Asian fusion. Nearby, A few cheaper asian take aways masquerading as Restaurants, what you get is cheap inauthentic versions. Motto: overheads go up, prices go up. That is required to survive! Bathroom is up 2 flights of stairs .More

After years of no Thai food living in Florence Italy I could not let this opportunity pass by. It was really of a high standard and my husband who took the brisket "pad thai" had a real winner, my green curry was equally tasty. Can...recommend! A large restaurant.More

Excellent food and service. I had the Pad Thai, my wife had the Beef Noodle Soup. Both were great tasting and satisfying. I was full but I considered ordering another plate to go.

First time in Koto. Highly recommend. “Phuket” was delicious, it’s very spicy but loved it. The atmosphere, the service…everything was great. We’ll definitely eat here again.
