Kochi Sushi and Steakhouse
1800 Plainfield Pike
Cranston, Rhode Island
(501) 944-8989

Kochi Sushi and Steakhouse opened recently in the Wal-Mart shopping center on Plainfield Pike in Cranston. My son, daughter and I went to check it out.

The first thing that we noticed when we went was the dramatic decor.

All three of us were in awe of the amazing chandelier.
The photo just doesn't do it justice.

Kochi's bar has a slate of fun Japanese and island-themed 'tinis and cocktails. Ave started with a melontini, I had a chocolate martini, and Megan had a Kochi fusion.

The owner and wait staff were very attentive and enthusiastic. It's clear they're all passionate about providing good food and service.

We started with appetizers of sushi and steak, courtesy of the owner.

Megan's dinner included a Kochi Roll (Spicy tuna, eel, avocado & mozzarella cheese, deep fried & served with spicy mayo, eel sauce & sweet chili sauce) and a Sakura roll (Spicy salmon, crunch & mango inside, topped with shrimp & avocado), and tuna sashimi. She said it was everything you want good sushi to be: fresh, elegantly displayed, and excellently executed.
The presentation was so beautiful...

Ave had an Angel Roll (Shrimp tempura & avocado inside, topped with spicy crab & crunch). Served on an ice plate! He raved about the artistry of the presentation.

I had the steak hibachi, served with fried rice and a salad. The steak was remarkably well-seasoned and tender. The leftovers I took home were just as delicious - and as tender - when I ate them cold for lunch the next day.

Although we were too full for dessert this time, we're planning a second trip to get ice cream. And a third for dinner. And a fourth.

It was such a pleasant experience. We can't recommend it enough!
