  • Best Sushi in Frisco (in DFW!)

    This has become our go to sushi place lately. Price is perfect, food is amazing, and the staff treats you with high respect! We have tried every single item on the menu and unique taste of each is really good. If you haven't been there yet, you need to go! Let me put it this, my wife and I have been together for almost 11 years and she hates sushi. Whenever we used to go out she would try a bite or two from what I order, but only eat the California role (hates raw fish.) Since we became regulars at Kotta, she now eats all kind of raw fish there and only at Kotta! The food presentation, the cleanliness, and the taste are to die for! I hope they don't change. My only con is that it gets very crowded and extremely loud.

    This is the second time I have eaten dinner at Kotta Sushi. We waited about 35 minutes on our first visit for a table, and I made reservations for my last visit. The sushi is extremely good and the presentation is excellent. The staff are friendly and attentive. Friday and Saturday nights are very busy, and with a full crowd it can be noisy. I would recommend Kotta Sushi as a place to go and the menu selections are great!

    Kotta is Frisco's neighborhood gem. Sushi is always super fresh and beautifully displayed. Service is great. We always request Andrew as our server. The owner, Ken is awesome. He's always there and running a great establishment. We are a huge fan.

    The sushi here is great and they have a steak coleslaw appetizer that's delicious. This was our 2nd time dining here. Again, the sushi is great but we also ordered some panko fried shrimp appetizer and it was raw once we bit into it. This grossed us out and was probably a freak accident but we probably will not be returning for a little bit.

    After hearing about how good the sushi was a group of four decided to check it out this past Friday. Well....it must have been an off night as the sushi was not very fresh, the rolls were not made properly, they failed to bring 2 items out that we ordered and the service was sub-par to say the least.

    If you like sushi rolls, this is your place. If you're looking for more authentic Japanese fare/vibe, seek elsewhere, but if you like the fusion-y American-Japanese, sushi the rolls here are great. Almost too many to choose from.

    Dined on 5/19/2014
    When you go to a sushi restaurant, you expect the fish to be as fresh as they can get it and you expect a good variety...Kotta Sushi Lounge delivers both. Their sushi chef, Kenny, has a flair for presentation (something the Japanese culture puts high on their list) so we had to take photos of all the sushi delivered to our table. There are alot of sushi places in town but this is one of the better ones.

    We made reservations, and could not be seated. After watching other people getting tables, we pushed 3 hi-tops in the bar together. All 8 of us had been looking forward to a comfortable, enjoyable dinner. That did not happen. I was especially disappointed after receiving 2 email confirmations for the reservation.

    Make sure you have reservations if you plan on coming here after 5P on a Saturday. This wasn't mentioned on the restaurant website but I made reservations anyway and was so glad I did. The manager/owner was walking around the restaurant and informed us that they don't take any walk-ins at all after 5P on Saturdays. This may apply to other nights too, I was only there on Saturday. Anyway--I ate only sushi and it was all delicious. Everything was well done and fresh. My friend had the garden noodles with chicken and I sampled some of hers and it was wonderful. All in all I'd go here again.

    My wife and I frequent regularly and have only had one mediocre experience. Every other has been great sushi and drinks. Went recently for valentine's day (Saturday) and everything was great. Only complaint was a pair of kids at another table who kept kicking the booth.

    I went to Kotta on a Sunday afternoon....it was quiet, classy and somewhere I knew I wanted to return to. Wow....totally different experience on Saturday night at 7pm. I guess that's anywhere now, but Kotta was especially noisy. Maybe some sound muffling on the walls would help, but no one in our party could even hear each other. It was miserable. Also, the table/booth combos are wayyy to close for comfort. I felt at any time the stranger next to me could reach over and grab my sushi roll. It was unsettling. Other than that, the food is great. The spring roll dipping sauce was new and different and I'm going to try to copy it at home. I'll be back but never on Saturday evening.

    We were promptly seated upon arrival and greeted by our waitress. She suggested a few rolls for us to try and she did not steer us wrong. I ordered the Mardi Gras Roll and my husband had the Nacho Roll. We were both impressed with the quality and the taste...it was delicious. We have tried sushi all over the Frisco area and this is our favorite by far. We could not have asked for a more attentive waitress, she exceeded our expectations. The manager even stopped by to see how we enjoyed our dinner. Whenever we go out for sushi...you can bet, this is the place we will go. If Julia is working....ask to sit in her section....she is the BEST!!!!

    Sushi is underwhelming at Kotta. Most rolls I've tried lack the flavor I'm accustomed to. Menu items, however, are outstanding . The asian beef slaw app is fantastic. I definitely will return but hoping they get their act together on the sushi rolls

    It was our first time here. We read the great review on the net about it. We were not familiar with the Frisco area and was needing a place to take a client out for dinner that was close to home for them. We luved and would go back again. It was a nice casual sushi restaurant that will make traditional Japanese dishes.

    We made reservations through open table. Showed up on a Saturday night at 7 and our table had a reserved sign on it just waiting for us. The waiter was very friendly and even suggested something that wasn't currently on the menu. Food was fresh and wonderfu. There were a lot of kids but we were in a section of two- seat tables so it was great for our date night. We had two rolls and the Teriyaki salmon. All really great. This is my new favorite sushi place!

  • Bad hostess..... great recovery!
    FriscoMomVIP
    Dined on 10/7/2013
    We had booked several hours in advance via Open Table and asked for an outside table. The hostess was inexperienced and stated upon our arrival that there was no room outside and that because it was a web reservation, they don't get the requests. Both hostesses were inventing reasons as they went - basically blaming it on the customer! We had out of town guests with us or I would have walked away at that point.....But thankfully a smart waiter joined in the conversation and remembered we were the customer. By the end of the meal, and because the food is always outstanding, we had forgiven the bad start - thanks to the waiter and the owner who were outstanding! We will go back as the food is just unequaled anywhere else.
