That is one of the best Japanese restaurants I have ever been to. Lovely moments in a nice ambient where you can watch (admire!!) the Chef and all cooks in the open kitchen in order to enjoy fresh raw fish and other delicious Japanese specialties! Do not forget the saké (cold or hot depending on the mood) :-) - FYI, it may be better to call and book before going ! Better for dinner than lunch

When you enter Kotestu, it's like being transported to Japan in an authentic local restaurant in Tokyo or Kyoto, where everybody knows each other and the food is fresh and home-made. The sushi is prepared with fish flown in fresh from Thailand, which enhances the quality for a landlocked country. The Yakitori is delicious, the Sushi astounding and the Wasabi, strong and authentic as one wishes. They have Asahi and Kirin Ichiban as Japanese beers. It's also interesting to see local Japanese diplomats and businessmen walk in and chat with the staff like in Japan. The service is also authentically Japanese and the only downside is their English is not great. If you speak a few words of Japanese though, it will help.

After almost a week in Kathmandu and had enough of dal and curry at the conference venue hotel, this place has offered something distinctive.
As we were not very much into sushi and sashimi, and the kobe beef teppanyaki was sold out, we ordered ramen and udon, which were terrific! The flavour was authentic japanese, no wonder this place is quite popular. Service was excellent and lively.

I have been travelling to Nepal for many years now and I frequent this establishment many times during my stay, all I can say Its a little piece of food heaven. The sashimi is as fresh as you can get for this landlocked country. The lunch menu Is a very good deal they also have teppanyaki you can have whole squid, kobe beef the menu is quite extensive.
