Lonely Planet review

It takes a brave person to order sushi in the Himalaya but raw-fish experts (afishionados?) generally rate Koketsu as the best Japanese place in town. The seafood here is flown in fresh from Thailand, as are the takosu (marinated octopus), squid and roe. The focal point of the restaurant is definitely the central teppanyaki grill. It’s at the northern end of Lazimpat, right across from the Japanese embassy, which is no coincidence.
