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

Very friendly welcome, first time on a Saturday night to get a table without booking in advance. Menu impressive, wine list very good, but generally expensive. Sushi seriously average. Tastes like its been standing for the whole afternoon.

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...

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!
