Kokoro - Croydon

42 George Street, Croydon CR9 1NE

KOKORO’ literally means ‘heart’, ‘soul’ and ‘spirit’. We put our heart, soul and spirit in the food made for our customers.

Mr. Park, the founder and CEO of KOKORO used to find it hard to come by a place where he could eat simple, cheap but decent oriental food, served quickly and conveniently on a busy enough day.

He decided to set up a sushi restaurant that also offers a range of freshly made hot food. He wanted to benefit both himself and the customers looking for an alternative to the day-to-day pasta, sandwiches or salads.

Not long since his brainstorm of the idea, the first branch of KOKORO was opened in Kingston-Upon-Thames in Surrey in 2010. KOKORO have grown to a total of 12 branches spread across the southern part of the UK and are growing rapidly, opening a new branch every couple of months.
