Visited Koi for lunch during the week and was thankfully fairly empty. The service was good and the dishes were delivered fast. Ordered the Dimsum starter platter and it was among the best I have tasted around Jhb. The Thai curry was also fairly tasty. The ambiance is nice and a good place to enjoy a delicious Asian meal.

The food was excellent, the staff friendly and prices reasonable. The selection of food is diverse and everything from the dumplings to the sushi was spot on.

Koi, Rosebank is one of my all time favourite restaurants in Johannesburg, I had to give a 10/10 review based on my last meal there over the weekend - the service was outstanding. Thank you to the entire team at Koi. See you again this weekend.

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.

If you are looking for great sushi, this is the place to be. You can also expect professional service from the waiting staff and high quality interior.

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...
