Looks great! In terms of food/ambience, it looks similar to Gyotaku or the old Suehiro in Honolulu (yes?)


I enjoyed it Kat!

Actually, perhaps a even a bit better James! And Suehiro/Wisteria were two of my go-to places for old school Japanese "back home".


What's the item to the left of the karaage in the bento? Pasta? I haven't been here before but the lunch menu looks affordable and worth a try.


Poke's approaching $20 nowadays? That's insane. $20 for chirashi with soup and salad is super reasonable. I think at Sakura it's close to $30 now.


It's a pseudo pasta salad thing Faye. Lunch at Kokoro is quite affordable.

It can get up there Junichi. I think that 20 bucks for chirashi these days is very reasonable.

Hi Kirk!

Have they fixed the smell inside the restaurant? Last time I was there (and the time before that) the liquor store next door's plumbing issue had unfortunately caused the unmistakable stench of sewage to permeate through the inside of Kokoro. As much as I love their food, that's the last thing I wanted to smell while dining (on sushi no less).


No off smells during my two visits BBJ.


I've been meaning to get out to this place since first Ed posted way back when.


Lunch here is a good value Jan - they even have it on weekends I think.


Thanks for the reminder....I really love this place and always forget about it!


Yeah, I think it has something to do with the location Jack.


Definitely the location, but i like it. The restaurant and mall remind me of a place you would find in Hawaii.


Yes, it does Jack. All those hidden treasures.


Have you tried Kotobuki in Clairemont area? Relatively new sushiya. The fish quality is fantastic!


Hi Julie - That's the shop that replaced Wa Sushi, right? Well, I gotta go check it out. Thanks for the recommendation!
