Great

I celebrated my 40 birthday there, with 45 guests. It was well coordinated and the guests had an enjoyable evening.

One always eats very well at Koi, the seafood is particularly good. The sushi is excellent, and the salad with seared tuna is an excellent startor for 2. The crispy calamari starter with hoisin makes a great main couse, esp with asian fries! Unfortunately the service was really poor last night, drinks took hours, they forgot some of the items...

This is my 3rd time dining at Koi. The menu has been changed sadly not in my favour as the items taken off were some of the ones i liked most. I would recommend this restaurant but maybe my food choices have changed as i used to like the food, now i found it a bit rich, too oily for... More

Always fresh and delicious this is a must try restaurant if you are in Rosebank. We eat here at least every other week and it is consistently great. Don't leave without having their date candy, which they normally serve with the coffee. It is home made and delicious.

It is one of the best sushi places in town. First we started with the chicken and ginger dumplings which were yummy. We then ordered the quinoa salad and the steak salad. The quinoa is so nice if you are a fan of peanuts ( i have posted a picture). We have also ordered the koi volcano sandwich which is... More

Luv this place. It's Some kind of Asian fusion joint. I always go for the dumplings and sushi, up there with the best in Johannesburg. Atmosphere is good, waiter attention relaxed but attentive. I recommend!

A group of friends visited Koi in Rosebank for a birthday celebration and we were not disappointed. The food was incredible. We ordered the lamb shank, the duck, prawns and calamari and everyone was extremely satisfied with their meals. It's a little pricey, but with the excellent, attentive service and good food, it's definitely worth it for a special occasion.... More

We got to Koi at around 7pm on a Saturday night and it was fairly empty. By the time we were eating our main course the place was packed. The waiter was friendly and efficient. Food did take slightly long to come out but it was really tasty. Also very well presented. I can't really fault them on anything. Definitely... More
