If you are a sushi professional then this is not the right place for you. The food is not bad for the price but it is not an upscale Japanese restaurant.The kids loved it though! We ordered several dishes to share: the fried calamari was ok, the shrimp tempura very oily, the teriyaki chicken tasted uncooked! On the other hand, we enjoyed the spider roll, celebration roll and nacho rolls. My son also loved the freshwater eel sushi, but I personally did not taste it!

Kotta is one of those sushi joints that caters to many audiences. We have been loyal patrons for 5 years and we keep coming back (and recommending them) because the artistry of the chefs, selection of FRESH fish, and the atmosphere is simply better than many of their competitors. And Frisco is flooded with sushi options.

Artistry: We consistently post pics of our chef's choice sashimi on Facebook and get comments like, "wow," "delicious," and "amazing." Overall, most of the chefs have been there a long time and do a great job. Most regulars have their favorites.

Fish: We are continuously impressed with the variety and quality of the fish. The restaurant gets multiple deliveries each week (Friday is a good day as fish is very fresh for the weekend) and carries the standard tuna and salmon, plus a variety of specials that change based on their season and availability. Most of the time, even sea urchin is available! I've had questionable fish at other sushi restaurants in the area. Never here.

Atmosphere: This is in an upscale area of town, so you'll see some well-heeled patrons, especially on a weekend. That makes it great for special dinners and entertaining clients. That said, we come in very casual as locals and regulars and still feel welcome. Plenty of seats at the sushi bar and throughout the bar and restaurant.

Food: Other than sushi (if you like non-raw rolls, the nacho roll is very popular), there is a full kitchen and their fried calamari is awesome. Plenty of cooked food options to please picky diners.

The best testament to this place is that our non-sushi-loving relatives really loved this place and even came back on their own after we took them here for dinner. Really, really love this place.

Went here for the first time with our son, daughter in law, and two young granddaughters. We left very impressed. Kotta offers a large selection of rolls as well as sashimi and nigiri. Every one we tried was top quality anddelicious. The rolls were creative and tasty. They also offer a children's menu for little ones not ready for sushi. Service was friendly and attentive. It was a wonderful dining experience that we hope to repeat next time we visit.

This is our go-to sushi spot when we visit the area. We have been to Kotta 3 times and have always had top quality sushi and service. It tends to get busy during the dinner hours, so make reservations. Truly a nice dining experience.
