    Terrible terrible food. We booked a table for a la carte dining and ordered a set. The food tasted like it was stored in the fridge for a while. Sashimi & sushi plate looks like and tastes like something you could get from a sushi train place. They didnt even ask how would us like our steak. Staff have poor manners (not rude but rather just dont pay attention to any detail). Overall it looks like more of a family business kinda restaurant than fine dining.

    As HCWs working the holidays, we decided to treat ourselves to Koko’s Tapenyaki dining experience. Chef Martin showed his exeptional skill in making our lovely feast for the eyes and the palate. High praise to the seafood and wagyu beef! Other staff were also attentive to our needs. The cultural interiors, view of the waterfront sunset and night view of the city added to the dining experience. We will be looking forward to our next visit.
