We spent 4 nights in Rosebank and ended up eating twice at this restaurant. I had the Peking duck which was excellent. The amount of duck served was huge and it was very tasty. My husband had sushi and sashimi, both of which were excellent. We went back for lunch and I had a duck salad- again it was outstanding... More

Koi has become one of my favourite places in Joburg for sushi, dim sum and other bits. I often take visitors and have had a number of excellent meals there. However, recently I have been extremely disappointed. Thinking that perhaps it was just an odd bad meal I took a colleague visiting from Cape Town for dinner. The service was... More

Location is a good one. Food is very good. Service is also very good. Wine is disappointing. Limited wine list and not so good quality. There is room for improvement but overall a nice place. Would go back, no problem.

Expensive. Bland Food. Soup tasted like reheated and salty. Desert: too much sugar. Waste of time and, especially, money. Ambiance OK.

An excellent choice if you want to have a good quality meal. The environment was nice. The only negative was, because of too many customers, at the end it was quite loud.

Had a quick, early dinner here before heading to Cinema Nouveau for the 8pm showing. Working close to Koi in Sandton, I know the menu well but have tended to stick to my tried and tested favourites - red chicken curry, grilled line fish with Asian greens, and sushi (all delicious and suiting a variety of weather conditions!). This particular... More

Koi in Rosebank is well situated and easy to access. The service was excellent. Very friendly, efficient and responsive. We ordered a few dishes which we all shared which I think is a great way of eating. I get bored with mouthful after mouthful of the same food no matter how good it is! The spicy calamari was without argument... More

After a long week at the office I stopped there for a late lunch/early dinner and was pleasantly surprised by the deliciousness of what was placed in front of me. Service was good and the waiter had an excellent knowledge of wines which I appreciated. I only had a platter (or 2) or various dim sums so cannot comment on... More
