    Kokai was a delicious surprise. Just a small date night dinner that turned into a mouthwatering feast of Sushi and drinks. Our waiter Caesar was excellent and very knowledgeable about the menu. Just take a leap of faith, I promise you won't be disappointed.

    Sushi as always is really good! It was a little loud with the music, is more like a restaurant than a lounge to hang out, but food is always good

    Kokai is the very best sushi restaurant in the greater Houston area. The atmosphere is very nice, and the service is top notch. Everyone is super friendly and ready to serve you. The food and service is so good that I will drive 40 minutes to Kokai Sushi and Lounge, when I live walking distance to a very popular sushi restaurant in uptown. It is so worth the drive.

    The only thing we missed about this meal was that there were no soft-shell crab on the menu. All of the "crab" was imitation. Not acceptable for a fine dining sushi experience. We've had soft shells before at this restaurant and wonder why they're no longer available.

    The sashimi and house special margarita were delicious and beautifully presented—though the wasabi (which I had to request) had the texture and taste of pulverized cardboard. My server was inattentive, though there were only three tables of customers when I arrived. As is often the case for solo diners, I felt overlooked. There are too many other sushi places to try, so I’m not sure I’d go back.

    Not real Japanese food but American biased. Most of the rolls have cream cheese inside and just about everything is so sweet it made my mouth pucker. Not a good taste. Air con struggled in the Houston heat so was not comfortable. Staff were friendly and helpful though

    Best experience! Pablo my waiter was exceptional. I couldn’t decide on what rolls I wanted. After chatting with him for a sec, I asked him what is his favorite roll. He proceeded to mention an off the menu “secret” roll. I won’t be saying the name, but ask about it. Needless to say, I was blown away! My drink was on point, I had a Painkiller from the bar; not a very common drink at bars but it’s my personal favorite. The drink was made perfectly. Overall, my experience was far better than expected. I will definitely be returning.

    It was my daughter’s 11th birthday and y’all… they did the best job of making her feel so special! I reserved a table, let them know that it was her birthday. The waitress said, Hannah, happy birthday! She was so impressed! The sushi chef did an HB out of sushi and when we went to pay, they brought her the most delicious brownie/cake and ice cream! We typically go to Austin for our sushi outings when we can’t get to the coast but we will now make it a point to come here! Thanks y’all for making my girl feel special and the service was on point!
