KOTOBUKI has been on my list as my favorite sushi restaurant since 1986. The chef and his wife purchased from the previous owner so the quality and service has been consistent and top notch. Clean, good atmosphere, high quality, consistent, enjoyable....THE GO-TO Japanese food restaurant for those in the know in Stamford.

We have eaten here many times over the years as it is one of those restaurants that actually stays in business. The food is authentic and very good. Small place so seating can be tight. Go mid-week when it is not as crowded.

I think this is my fave Sushi place in downtown Stamford. They have a great menu of non-Sushi items as well which have all been great. This is the place you want to go if you don't want some disco ball experience that Sushi places often have. It's a basic Sushi restaurant, but it's no-frills approach is very much appreciated!

A proper sushi restaurant needs a sushi bar - Kotobuki has one with a very attentive sushi chef. We started with yellowtail sashimi with green onions, jalapeno and sesame seeds. Very tasty! Then came a nice assortment of sushi and rolls. The spicy tuna rolls with soy sauce rather than mayo was great. We got a great recommendation on saki - Kurosawa - that was delicious. We'll go back - solid sushi and great service!

This was the first place I ever had sushi some 20 years ago and it's as good today as it was then. All their sushi and sashimi is excellent and fresh. The service has always been attentive. Hopefully, this restaurant will be around for many years to come.

Useful tip - get there early for lunch as there's free parking round the back (accessed just to the right of at the front of the building) but it does tend to fill up as lunch time goes on.
