Ordered out. Fantastic food. Very pretty, very TASTY, our hostess was efficient and personable. The interior of Kokoro looks WAY cool (they had Pokemon running on a huge projector on the side of the wall), awesome ambiance. 3 rolls for 12 bucks was middle of the range price for such a nice place. With how great the food was, and how nice the staff seemed to be, I WILL be returning for a sit-down meal. EXCELLENT discovery!

This is my sushi spot! I've been going to Samurai Sushi with my family for 10+ years.. Peter the owner is a very good guy! I'm all about the Ninja Roll, and the spicy Shirashi salad! All the fish is super fresh and tasty!
