Kokoro, is a great introduction to sushi, they have delicious sushi and a good selection of hot food. It's a healthy and tasty alternative to the basic sandwich for lunch. It is expensive though and there isn't much of a choice other than salmon sushi....More

Nice japanese place with great varieties of meals and sushi. I ordered the Ramen soup and an Ichiban japanese beer to go along with it. Food was really good and tasted delicious. One of the better meals I had during my visit in Dublin.

Friendly service and this is clearly a very popular venue. The food was tasty though not spicy enough for my tastes. The beer was not as advertised on list and it is not cheap but the quality is good.

I ordered the spicy miso vegetarian ramen which was very good, the 'spicy' level is quite mild though for any future buyers! However it is extremely over-priced. The same ramen in Japan would cost about six euro. The staff were not very attentive. Our waitress...More

Given the size of the restaurant I recommend that you call in to make a reservation. I visited twice with a group of 5/6 and each time we encountered the restaurant nearly full. So yes, call in and make a reservation... More
