Kotobuki is a nice Japanese restaurant with Japanese employees and a nice Japanese culture and atmosphere.
Everything here reminds you of Japan, from the paintings on the walls to the furniture and the glassware. The first floor is designed as a regular bar and you can always see people enjoying each other’s company any time of the day. The underground floor is the restaurant itself, same floor with the kitchen, so all the room smells delicious.
The food here is simply amazing. I recommend you to have lunch here because the food is prepared very fast. The menu only has Japanese dishes, but you have a really big choice: everything from soups to sushi. In comparison to other Japanese restaurants in Chisinau, here you can find not only sushi, but also enjoy some fine meat.
If you cannot decide what you want to eat, they have 3-course meals for business lunch from 12:00-16:00 My favorite is the Tori Teriyaki: chicken in sweet-salty sauce, served with rice. Also, you can try their seafood dishes, they are very delicious.
