As a last minute thing, my friends and I went to Kokus for a drink. We arrived around 6:00 pm and they were running specials at the bar. We ordered a fabulous bottle of wine, suggested to us by out bartender. It was excellent. We ordered about 10 of the bar specials. Keep in mind they were very small portions, 3-4 pieces per dish. It was perfect. We did not over eat, but tasted a little bit of everything. The whitefish in the sesame truffle oil was, so delicate. The blue crab fajita was delicious. The calamari and the sauce it came with was so light. I did not eat the sushi trio because I do not like tuna, but that is my personal preference. My friends had it and said it was so fresh, it just melted in your mouth. Dessert time! We ordered the chocolate lava cake ... I can say with confidence, it is one of the best lava cakes I have ever had. We had to wait a little longer for it because they may it themselves. The outside had a nice crisp but not overdone taste, the chocolate was not too sweet, had the perfect balance of sweet and bitter, the vanilla bean ice cream is was served with was so smooth and silky. You just have to order it. Do yourself and your taste buds a favor, order it. You will not be disappointed. The staff is so nice and friendly. The restaurant is very clean. The decor is very nice and the music is not blaring but it is loud enough that you can hear the song but also have a conversation with others without having to yell. We will be visiting again very soon! By the way, I have catered two business luncheons with Kokus and both times, they have done a phenomenal job!! Kokus is truly a fabulous place to eat at. You must try it
Weve been to Koku many times over the year, the food and service never disappointed us. Always a good place to go for a nice treat whenever we have sushi cravings, and Koku has way more than just sushi. Let me begin by saying that, a good restaurant experience always starts with the ambiance and the friendliness if the staff. The mood is so nicely set with the lighting, wood works and the bronzed pipes running through the restaurant. I found it ingenious with the design. The staff always comes around and see how you are doing without being intrusive. The food is impeccable, to say the least. I had to satisfy my craving for the lobster soup and sashimi among other things. So we ordered the soup, still the same velvety texture we had last and it was to die for. I highly recommend it. Being a foodie myself, I need variety than just raw fish. We also ordered the sashimi salad and beef ribs. Sashimi was super fresh and the dressing adds another layer of flavor to the creamy fish. The beef ribs was so tender, we barely had to use the knife. Onward with the entries, we had the sushi sashimi platter for 2 and the must have filet mignon fried rice. Most important part of the sushi or sashimi is the fish, outside of chefs knife skill. I can tell how fresh the fish is, it has its own natural sweetness to the fish and the creaminess just melts in your mouth. It was so well prepared. I didnt really need that much soy sauce to compensate for the taste. To top everything off, the fried rice gives such a nice finish to your carb and meat craving.
I would have to say that this place not only has the best sushi and sashimi in this area, it also has the best service and ambiance as well. It has a NY city feel with excellent music and atmosphere. We live in Mt Kisco and have some decent Asian Fusion restaurants in our area however Koku is clearly the best around. You couldnt ask for friendlier service. It was my 60th birthday this evening and they personalized my desert plate writing on my plate with happy birthday and our server personally sang happy birthday. That meant a lot to me. The food was fantastic. I had the tri color sushi dinner and my wife had the Koku king roll. We were both very happy with our selections. We dined on a Thursday evening and the place was busy. That says a lot right there. We will be back for sure. Thank you Koku staff for providing me with a very memorable evening on my 60th birthday. You will be seeing me again in the very near future.
Seriously the best sushi Ive ever had. Visiting Armonk on business, I stumbled on Koku and Im so glad I did. I ordered the chefs choice sashimi and was very impressed with the quality. Then I ordered the salmon carpaccio, which is salmon wrapped around spicy salmon, a variation on the menus tuna carpaccio. Out of this world! Sushi this fresh is no accident. Talking to Chef Nick while sitting at the sushi bar, I learned that the quality food served there is a good portion of the restaurants overhead, as its fresh from all over the world. And the residents of Armonk seem to appreciate it, judging by the bustling business on a Thursday night!
There are several Japanese restaurant locations competing in my area which I used to frequent , but since I paid my first visit to Koku 10 days ago, I have returned twice with friends and family. I like the fact that they focus on genuine Japanese cuisine with the availability of a unique twist. Im obsessed with the TNT rolls served with a zesty truffle sauce, the crispy rice apertizer, and the red bean and green tea mochi.
Ive been to Koku many times with friends and coworkers. I love the environment and the bar! Its so relaxing to hang out with friends there. As far as the food, they only serve the freshness and best quality. The sushi literally melted in my mouth every time. As far as hot dishes, I would recommend Miso Black Cod, they are prepared just right. Lastly, the service staffs are always friendly and helpful. Thank you Koku!
Been there several times with couple of friends, not only impressed by the food, but also the variety of premium drink options. I am your typical raw fish lover, but saw my hot-plate-only friends had pretty good time too. Make sure you try the Miso Black Cod and Crispy Rice Tuna, and dont forget to ask for their Japanese beer that hard to get elsewhere. Enjoy
The vegetables are fresh and taste good. The desert we ate was very yummy. It was the chocolate cake I think. Very high quality, worth visiting. The parking is right in front. The only bad thing may be it closes early... At around 9:30pm/10pm also on the weekends!
Very pleased with this find. Just visiting colleges in the area and needed a nice Japanese dinner for the family. Excellent ambiance, great service, good is just right. Great selection, all our favorites, and a few fun additions. A rare 5 stars from us all.
The young woman who was our server made our night. She is fun, professional and she just "got us". 5 of us ate up a storm. Everything was great. Pace was perfect. Restaurant is comfortable and attractive but best of all was that young woman
