An air of serenity pervades this simple but tastefully done up place in bamboo, wood and pastels. Apart from the regular seating, one has the option of the tatami style of seating on mats with low tables. The live kitchen and bar at the far end of the restaurant add to the charm. The menu is replete with choices for anyone who enjoys Japanese food - soups, salads, appetisers, carpaccio, rice, donburi, desserts. Vegetarians too have a fair amount to choose from. The Sushi section of the menu abounds in variety. The purity of the ingredients is evident in every dish, which is aesthetically presented but sans any frills. 'Katsu Donburi', with fried chicken and egg on bed of rice boasts of simple, no-fuss flavours but delights the taste buds. 'Japanese Katsu Curry Rice with Pork' is equally comforting. The deftly flavoured food here needs no accompaniment. 'Black Cod in Miso', 'Rock Corn Tempura' and 'Yaki Soba Noodles' are worth trying. The Japanese food here is of unrivalled quality. Service is efficient and warm. One can expect a relaxed and unobtrusive dining experience here. The bar menu offers an excellent selection of Sake.
I went there twice in the space of 2 weeks, once for a quick lunch and the next for a leisurely dinner. Ordered a wide range of appetizers and main course, and nothing disappointed. The sea food and fish items were absolutely delightful, particularly the Hamachi. Overall, a great option for Japanese and Korean in Mumbai. Good, helpful service too. Only complaint was the billing, will help if they get cellphone boosters to process credit cards better !
Excellent food and good mix between Japanese and Korean food. Difficult to figure out the entrance at first, so ask for directions. Sushi is fresh and clean in flavor. Curry is very good. Recommend trying the ramen and kimchi if there is room.
Got a chance to visit kofuku bandra a few days before for their Big Bowl Challenge where they serve a massive bowl of ramen in diff broth kinda sauces and the Korean spicy one was too spicy for me but the other one was worth the jump! It's simple, finish the bowl in 12 mins and get a Rs 5000 voucher at their outlets! This is up till 15th Sept so go and grab the chance as well as experience the authentic cuisine and the ambiance and the seating style is also super cool!
My wife and I have been going to Kofuku every few months, sometimes taking our out of station guests for the absolutely superb Japanese food they serve. Never have we been disappointed. The atmosphere is great, the service is impeccable and extremely polite (true Japanese) and it's always value for money! Can recommend this to everyone who has a taste for such food.
The quality of food, service and aesthetic were impressive, but the lack of noise control was appalling. We were surrounded by obnoxious and clamorous groups who clearly lacked good social sense - gangs of people shrieking, standing next to our table chatting, being relentlessly and unpardonably loud. Last night, Kofuku felt more like a local watering hole or sports pub, than an authentic Japanese restaurant. There was none of the respectfulness or discipline or politeness that is characteristic of Japanese culture. One would expect connoisseurs of Japanese cuisine to have some basic understanding of how to behave in a culturally defined space. All the raucousness made for less than a stellar dining experience. I hope that the Kofuku management consider implementing some sort of NOISE CONTROL measure, to reflect the importance of quiet dining, discipline, respect and social sensitivity that is inherent to Japanese culture. In sum, Food & Service = Excellent. Ambience = Deplorable.
Last week as a group of friends got together, we all agreed that we were craving for some sushi so we put together our heads to search for the ideal Japanese place to suit our needs. We were sure we wanted a low-key affair that is not too heavy on pockets yet is authentic too. After hours of research we bumped across this highly reviewed eatery that was winning so much of accolades. And wonder of all – it was budget-friendly. That seemed to clinch the matter for us. We found ‘Kofuku’ to be a delightful discovery, which satisfied our dining fantasies on all levels. You will find Kofuku perched on the sixth floor of Suburbia Mall on Linking Road, Bandra West, which is a buzzing locality all week long. Kofuku’s claim to fame was its affordable priced Japanese fare available in the suburbs.
At Kofuku you can be assured to find authentic Japanese food for reasonable prices served in a pleasing chic background.The owners are not Japanese expats but that doesn’t make an iota of difference to its quality. City’s Japanese sector loves dining here regularly, a fact that is self-explanatory. Begin with, dumpling soup, tofu salad, tuna tataki, squid tempura, skewer breaded chicken, yaki gyouza, okonomiyaki, rock corn tempura, edamame, hirame karage, salmon carpaccio, seafood kaki age, ebi tempura, spring onion pancakes and sushi sashimi. Kofuku’s main course is an eclectic selection consisting, fish teppanyaki, asparagus tempura roll, sake maki, seafood hot pot, miso ramen, kaisen-don, balinesse curry, salmon teriyaki, mapo tofu, tofu black bean sauce, spicy Korean chicken, tofu teppan yaki steak, katsu ni, vegetable in laksha sauce and kakuni pork.
Someone with a Japanese taste buds will have a gala time wading through the menu. Kofuku ends the menu on a sweet note by offering you some surprisingly tasty desserts such as, mochi ice cream, dorayaki recipe, green tea ice cream, dango, chocolate molten cake, Kofuku special dessert, panna cotta delight and tiramisu. What used to be Firangipani is now Kofuku and it’s a hot favourite with the city’s Japanese expats. From the windows of Kofuku you get an amazing view of the city. Interiors are completely wooden and the dining space is divided into two areas, one is formal and other is traditional Japanese floor-seating style. Rice paper screens are placed between to split the areas into cosy nooks.
