    We were disappointed this time by the new layout of the restaurant.......open room now instead of some barrier walls for more intimate dining.....so loud, could not ever hear the American Indian flute music, just lots of people talking loudly over each other. We asked for a table by a window for out of town guests. We were taken to a large room where there was a table with at least thirty 8 year old girls having a birthday party. Umm, no. Table changed, room changed so we were with grownups.....also too loud. Service very slow at first, 10 minutes to get water. Once started, our waiter was superb. Overall disappointing experience for guests who were looking for a great one.

    Was anxious to try the restaurant since I heard great things about the resort and its premier restaurant Kai so we figured the quality at Ko'sin would be worth trying. Ko'sin appetizers selection was good and we chose the pork wings and the cheese plate. The short rib was substantial and so was the hamburger. Overall food quality was very good but the actual location lacked atmosphere and the menu was limited.

    The light above our table flickered which was distracting. The fry bread breakfast I saw on-line that made me think this would be a good place to try, had been removed from the menu. I had the eggs benedict with a chili sauce which was good - potatoes were a little under-cooked. My companion had the hash which he said was like separate ingredients thrown together that hadn't had time to meld into a cohesive dish. Service was adequate. The only reason I would eat here again is if I was staying on property and didn't want to have to drive for breakfast.

    Have been there before, as well as to Koi, the signature restaurant at the resort. Ko Sin is very relaxing--quiet music, a view of the adjacent Aji Spa, and nicely decorated. Have never had a complaint about food or service. The food is obviously prepared by a knowledgeable chef, and is nicely presented. Cocktails were done very well. Only complaint was the noisy kids at the adjacent table, but they left shortly after we arrived.

    This is one of our favorite restaurants...We took a friend for her birthday dinner, and were greeted by a waiter who announced he had a large party coming in soon, so we should order before they got there because he was going to be busy. Then we asked for the music to be turned on, as it was painfully quiet and we are used to the Indian flute in the background. To this request he responded by saying the music was controlled in the banquet room and the already mentioned large party had different music playing, so we were out of luck. Then we ordered a bottle of white wine and he brought it, poured both glasses on the opposite side of the table, leaving the glasses there for us to reach over and get, and never brought an ice bucket. Horrid.

    Ko'sin at the WHP Resort is LOVELY & not "complicated." We were seated in a quiet corner of a "naturally appointed" room. The room's center arrangement was a grouping of branches from a local bush, adorned with crystals. The high ceiling had 3 long beams across it - giving the sensation of sitting in a place of nature. The overall environment was peaceful & the noise level, even as the room began to fill, was moderate. Our server was intelligent, attentive, & knowledgeable about the food & the "lore" that went with the recipes. Prices were reasonable. My husband ordered the pork ribs which he found delicious. The "house" black bean humus & lavash were unique & delightful. We enjoyed our dining experience & would return again!

    We had an enjoyable meal. The restaurant is a nice place to go when you want to feel like you went somewhere out of town, yet it is just south of our home in Ahwatukee. The food is inspired by Native American touches, but quite honestly, without having a Groupon, it's a bit pricey and the menu used to be better when it had some touches from the other restaurant above, Kai.

    Loved the way the menu read but thought the food delivered fell short. Hummus and pita was very nice start. Salad was large and tasty. The native American flatbread entree was a small open faced tostada for $14 very disappointing. Salmon was over cooked. Portion small. $140 for two a bit steep for what we got. Brunch was a better deal but for a none meat eater $20 for a vege omelet and fruit was a bit high. My husband got his monies worth though with bacon sausage biscuits and gravy and omelet.

    At first glance the menu at Ko'Sin seemed pretty basic and I was having a hard time getting excited about anything. But then I tasted my entree and it was fantastic! There may be some of the same menu items you see most everywhere else (burger,ribs,chicken,salmon...) but they do not taste like this. My salmon was impeccable, very flavorful, crispy on the outside and not over cooked. Even the side items have something special done with them. Do not underestimate this menu. We'll be back.

    Dined on 6/6/2014
    This was our 2nd time visiting Ko'sin and it was a disappointment compared to the first time. The difference was time of year, first time was high season, 2nd in the summer. Shouldn't be that much difference in food quality and service especially when the price was the same. We will probably not be returning for a 3rd try.

    It was a little strange at first, sitting in a small dining area, but the view was lovely. The appetizer was the best thing we had: buffalo chili; in fact, I said I would come back for lunch just for that! We ordered the lamb chop, which was large and good with a nice flavor, but just good...not great, and a bit pricey. We also had the mahi taco, which had good flavor and they were very generous with the goat cheese on the tortillas. For dessert we shared monkey bread and vanilla ice cream; the ice cream was great, but the monkey bread was a bit dry and very disappointing.

    Small menu, a bit expensive but the food is OK. Order the hamburger medium rare because we found the chef cooks them well done when asked for medium. The fish taco was to salty for my taste and for the people that I was with. The salads were very large ... enough to be considered a meal. The dessert ... chocolate cake was very large and like eating chocolate fudge. It should have come with vanilla ice cream but you will be charged extra for it. All in all I'd go back for the burger.

    We were one of the first customers on a Friday night we wanted a later reservation for dinner were towed that Friday night reservations were full. All customers herded into one room in the remaining rooms were empty. The steaks were tough the bananas Foster had no bananas. The strawberry shortcake at a scoop of ice cream a biscuit and maybe one finely cut up strawberry. Not worth the price.

    This Sheraton hotel is a bit of a jaunt and off the beaten path but once found proved to be a lovely property. The dining room of Ko'sin is small, but quite nice. Service is good, but perhaps a little too eager. The food! Wonderful. The hummus that is offered in place of butter with their southwestern version of lavash is so tasty. One of the best Fish Taco preparations and presentations I've encountered and a very well prepared, super tender filet mignon was equally enjoyed by my husband. We had to try the butterscotch pudding with the crunchy chocolate cookies and were really glad we saved room! We will return!

    Though attached to a Sheraton hotel, you would never know it. The food and service were superb, and the total bill for two, with wine, came to $110. The view of mountains and desert were very nice and outside patio pleasant and comfortable. Imaginative Southwestern cuisine, from gourmet burgers, to street tacos to rib-eye steaks. I'll go back again!

    The selection is not large enough and it's a bit boring. Great setting but when I was there at 6:30 on Sat nite there were two tables taken besides mine. A group of 3 asked the hostess if reservations were required? She stated they are "highly recommended" and then watched them walk away. There were 3 tables taken!!! How crazy is that? Not managed well at all.

    I wish I could have eaten more, but I was completely stuffed after my Fork Tender Short Ribs! They were AMAZING! The Black Bean Hummus that they bring out was probably one of the best I've ever had. To make that even better, they gave us the recipe so we can make it at home too! I also wanted to note that the service was just as excellent as upstairs at Kai!

    Being a star wood employee and working in a star wood restaurant I had a certain expectation for service which was not met. Our server not only was shaky the entire time but he never came by and asked us how anything was going. He also never put in our appetizers and told us he just put the apps in when our dinner was already out. When i asked what he recommended on them menu he could not explain anything because he never tried it. Honestly, I was very disappointed with my dinner and will probably never come back.

    While the restaurant tries to keep the Pima food theme it's presentation compared to menu descriptions does not keep up. The food is tasty and seasoned well, but menu descriptions led to disappointment in a salad which advertised crispy carrots and cucumbers which turned out to be very thin julienne strips which therefore had no crispness. Torta was OK - nothing special.
