About Us

“We love our job, we love our food. When you're here, you are our family.”

Koku Shi

At Koku Shi we take care of each and everyone of YOU. Our goal is to show you that Japanese food is MORE than just sushi and sushi isn’t just raw fish. In our UNIQUE big menu, everyone will find something they can fall in LOVE with. From juicy chicken Karaage, comforting Ramen to mouth-watering sushi rolls. Koku Shi has started as a small FAMILY business and through our journey we have learnt that’s our STRENGTH. That’s why we want the best experience for you and your loved ones in our restaurants. Being Fife’s First Japanese Restaurant makes us WORK harder every day to show that our pioneering efforts are well received and an AWARD for being Scotland’s the Best Japanese Restaurant of the year 2018 and the Best Asian Restaurant 2019 only confirms that, as well as being a guest on A TV show where we made The First in the world Sushi with Haggis.

What we do differently: Big menu with something for everyone. Everything freshly made on order. Separate vegan menu called VEGA SHI. Gluten free options. Working with local suppliers. Only best ingredients ( like at home). We are environmentally friendly by using biodegradable packaging for our takeaway food and keeping our food waste under 5%.
