Kotobuki in Hauppauge - is it as good as they say?

Curious to hear about your experiences there. Especially if you can compare it to someplace like Blue Ribbon in Manhattan/Brooklyn or other well-regarded city sushi destinations.
I've only been to the Hauppauge branch, and it is as good as they say. You can't go wrong with the sushi special for 2 (or 3 or 4), which includes soup, salad, fried oyster appetizer, and a stupendous assortment of sushi, sashimi, and maki. At $25 per person, it is a great deal.
I also love their tuna/avocado salad, spider roll, and many of the specialty rolls. They don't take reservations, so if you go at a peak time, you will wait...but it is worth it. I simply can't eat sushi from anywhere else and really enjoy it anymore.
I've been going there since I was wee (and once this week!), and I've gotta say that I haven't had significantly better fish--certainly not yellowtail or fresh salmon--anywhere else. Somewhat limited selection, super-suburban crowd, always glisteningly excellent fish.
Thanks for all the (concurring) opinions! I will add it to the list next time we're up for sushi and a bit of a drive. :-)
