One of the best sushi place I've been in the last few months. Fishes were so fresh and so tasty ! All the rolls are amazing especially the crunch one ! Tuna tataki is really good and you should really try the dessert here, the banana flambée ! Perfect !

Great place although last venue was much better with more magic. Nonetheless the suchi is still great, everything is fresh and you cannot stop eating. Service is correct.

the food is amazing it is fresh and simple but always with a twist... But yet it feels a bit odd to be in such a fancy and posh restaurant very far away from the reality of Santa Teresa. The price is the same as a great restaurant in Paris... The waitresses were very nice but totally overwhelmed and busy... More

Great Japanese restaurant in Santa Theresa. Sushi's fresh and very tasty, service charming. A little off the main road, so no dust on your food unlike all the restaurants down at the main road. Only drawback: no credit cards, something one cannot understand in the 21st century, especially not in a restaurant that want's to be hip.

We were here celebrating our friend's birthday and had a really tasteful dinner. Muscow mule with the homemade ginger ale was really good and so was all the rolls, our favorite were Crunch. Very cosy place! We recommend it. The service can be improved!

Overpriced & overrated like most places in Santa Teresa. Very standard & simplistic Japanese menu, not impressed! The place is LOUD, 99% english speakers including service, dont come here if you are looking for a romantic chilled place to have a quite time and/or conversation.

Koji moved the restaurant and it is now closer to Santa Teresa and has better parking. When we were there in Dec, the new location didn't have a sign and you had to ask how to find it. Koji's is both a local favorite and a tourist destination. We have been going there for dinner for years and always have... More

Interesting night as the power went out in half of Santa Teresa. We arrived at 7:20 for our 7:30 reservation and had to wait as they gave our reservation to folks who did not have a reservation. We were placed close to the bar area which is congested and hot in relation to where our table was suppose to be.... More

We were lucky enough to have a table and thus being able to enjoy the amazing japanese food of this restaurant!!! Try the Kojy's sushis, the caterpillar or the spicy tuna handroll! Everything is tasteful and you will appreciate your diner! The atmosphere is cool. A place to be in Santa Teresa
