Yum yum dim sum!

i'm not fan of sushi so i ordered some dim sum and what a pleasant surprise to my palate! delicious is all i can say. Interesting cocktail selection, i enjoyed the Brown Cow - coke, rum, ice cream and star anise...a very grown up milkshake went down so well.

Probably one of the best Oriental/Asian Food I had in Rosebank area. Dimsums and Sushi variety and quality is amazing. Restaurant also have many vegetarian options. Bit on expensive side but worth a visit for people who enjoy Oriental/Asian Food.

Sushi is sushi right? Well no actually! Koi presents sushi beautifully so you really enjoy the experience in a multi-sensory kind of way. Different and delicious.

I came here often when I lived in Jo'burg, but sometimes against my better judgement. I had some very good meals, but also plenty of howlers.

The food was very good. Sunday lunch, no vibe but our table was lovely though. I ordered a glass of red wine and a cheap thick glass arrived, filled to the brim with undrinkable WARM wine. I thought that this was a posh restaurant. Not my best experience.

If you like Dim Sum order the platter , you get a good variety and its very tasty, this sets you up for an dining experiences, The waiters are very helpful and you should order a few dishes at a time giving you the opportunity of sampling different flavours

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
