Been here once. The food was good but the portions were small. After returning home we basically have to eat another meal.

Took the family here today based on other Tripadvisor reviews. Food was good, but not great. For quasi fast-food Japanese, this was good. Prices are affordable. Sushi is ok but not great. Chicken Katsu was good and very affordable. Unagi Bowl was good. Overall satisfied....More

Kokoro is one of our favorite places to eat an inexpensive, yummy, simple bowl of stir fry or noodle soup. If you are looking for something slightly exotic with just the right amount of "kick", try the Spicy Chicken Splash which includes an egg, chicken,...More

Our family has eaten at Kokoro more than any restaurant in town. The most consistent reliable food and always tasty. Owners take meticulous care to assure customers are satisfied and sure to return. The menu is traditional Japanese cuisine and frequented by Japanese customers.

Great place for counter style rice bowls and ramen noodles. All the Ginger you can eat. My son from Texas said if they had these there, he'd eat there all the time. Try Gyoza and Saki specials when they're offering.

Awesome food, never fails, highly recommend the Kokoro bowl, delicious. Staff some days great, some days a little slow and grumpy.

Kind of a Japanese fast food place. Many healthful options and some not so healthy I'm sure! Sushi and a very good happy hour, good coupons usually available in local mailers, and an 'Arigato' frequent customer card available. Beer and wine available, too.
