“Great Korean BBQ and Sushi”

Kochi Korean Bbq & Shabu Shabu
Ranked #30 of 96 Restaurants in Atascadero
Restaurant details
Reviewed 3 March 2018 via mobile

First time at Kochi, but definitely not the last. We came in for lunch, and ordered from both sides of the menu. The spicy pork bulgogi was perfectly seasoned and served with a good selection of sides. The sushi was also delicious, very fresh, and came with miso soup and a nicely dressed salad. It’s like getting two restaurants for the price of one! And talking of price, it was very reasonable given all that you get. Having recently moved from the Bay Area, where there are many options for this kind of cuisine, we didn’t expect comparable Korean in Atascadero, but how wrong we were!

The service is very attentive and the prices are reasonable. This restaurant offers Japanese-and Korean fare.....from sushi to bibimbap. The food is very good, and the interior is bright and cheery. There even is a little playroom for kids whose parents have to wait. This is a great find!

As Atascadero and North County of San Luis Obispo are not bastions of Asian cuisine I was skeptical what I would find at Kochi. However, I have been very pleasantly surprised with my visits to Kochi. The menu encompasses both Korean and Japanese Sushi offerings and both are very good. While I find that the Korean side is a bit toned down from some I have had (not as spicy), it is fresh, high quality and the abundant side dishes are fun. The sushi side has been very good as well.

The service is good, local young people who seem happy and I see the same faces, which would indicate to me that the management is good. Further indication is I have always seen active management on the floor sometimes serving and backing up the staff. Nice to see. Overall when looking for something different, check it out!

PS. Nice local wine and beer list too.

We originally went here to have Sushi. They have a large selection of Sushi ans Sashimi. We love the Japanese cuisine but we ended up having Korean dishes after looking at all of the choices. Our meals were excellent. I'm confident that Sushi would have been too after seeing the plates served other diners.

good service good servings good tasting food. I had been to this establishment under different ownership and completely different food all together. This was a good change for a good meal.
