I first ate at Kotobuki in 1988/1989 and am still a regular customer. I travel to Japan several times a year, so I know Japanese food very, very well. Whereas this restaurant might not reach the level of Sushi Nanase, the food here is routinely...More

Kotobuki is a delicious, authentic Japanese restaurant in downtown Stamford. It gets more busy as the hours get later. Fish is unbelievably fresh and does not take long for exquisite looking sushi rolls to come your way. Prices are very reasonable. FYI...there’s only on street...More

While it has been there for years, this Japanese Restaurant continues to deliver a wide range of very good Japanese food. Even the red bean ice cream gets a special thimbs up as does the delicate tempura and excellent gyoza.

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...More
