Sat down at the table on a lovely warm Johannesburg evening. We ordered dim sum to start which was very tasty. The table also ordered some new style sashimi to share which was spectacular. I ordered the seared tuna which was very very good. Only negative thing was that the portion size was incredibly small. I am not a typical... More

The restaurant is in a perfect hub of activity. Sushi is the best in town and the service is excellent.

First time visit to Koi Johannesburg (the one in. Capetown remains my fav) but was pleasantly surprised as same good food, friendly staff and cosy venue. Unfortunately I will leave South Africa in a few days but will surely be going back.

Rarely do we visit the same restaurant twice in one vacation. There is too much good food to try. But we made an exception for Koi. We ate at Koi our second night in Johannesburg. My oldest granddaughter loves Sushi. Koi is primarily Japanese but mixes it up with other Asian food. I had the Pumpkin and Spinach Dim Sum... More

Second time at Koi and while the menu is interesting, things are very overpriced. We had a selection of starters; the Waygu sliders were outstanding and the highlight of our dinner, the rest of the food was tasty but average. Overall overpriced but I guess you're paying for location and for the vibe. Perhaps a good choice if you love... More

We had a variety of starters and a wide selection of sushi. The food was well presented and they all tasted amazing. I do find it on the pricey side but the portions are big. The setting outside is also great on a summer's day.

Koi Rosebank is a lovely little restaurant. Located in The Firs, it offers inside and outside seating. The food is splendid, service is good and the ambience is fantastic. Highly recommended.

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
