Nice staff, good sushi! Big bites - I usually eat 12 but was happy with 6 (could have eaten 8 though). Teriaky also good - a lot of vegetables (could have had less rice).

Fresh fish, prompt service, and a door which closes between the Karaoke bar and the main restaurant are all good reasons to come to this Sushi bar. Don't know what prompted the name change but the fish was good, there was a large variety of sushi rolls, and also several Korean Items. It is within walking distance of several hotels. Not to far from Cal-Poly.

Came here for dinner as it was within walking distance of our hotel. I had the chicken and beef teriyaki (both were good, but felt the chicken was more flavorful) and my wife had the spicy sashimi bowl, which was very generous. Service was friendly and food came promptly. Good price for the quantity and quality.

Really good offerings and options here. Very good sushi and tataki - my favorites. I appreciate the atmosphere which is more endearing than many sushi spots. Easy place for lunch meetings or friends and family gatherings in the evening.

Easy parking as it is part of Marigold Shopping Center.

Kokoda is a small, family run restaurant featuring a wide variety of Japanese dishes with a Korean touch. The specialty here is sushi rolls—41 are on the menu. Noodle and rice bowls, curries, tempura, sashimi, and salads are also available. 104 dishes complete the menu. A chicken Bento Box is offered at lunch time for $5.95. Many unusual dishes are also featured: Ja Jang Myun, Champone, Mandu Guk, Kalbi Tang, Kimchee Jigae, Dwenjang Jigae, and Dolsot Bibimbap for example.

I ordered the Champone (Udon noodles, seafood and vegetables in a rich, spicy broth) $9.50. It came in a large 9" stoneware bowl and would easily have fed two or three hungry people.

The affable proprietor, Ha, presides over the sushi bar and the wait staff is very friendly. Kokoro is "crazy" (according to Ha) on weekends but if you come during the week you should have little difficulty being seated. Many lunch time and happy hour specials including a 30% discount at happy hour (M-F 3-5PM; M-Sa 8:30-close).

Just off the US101 Freeway in San Luis Obispo. Take the Santa Rosa/Morro Bay exit.
