Nice place, no children's menu

The sushi was good. We had albacore sashimi also, which was served without ponzu or the obligatory grated daikon, which were missed. No children's menu, and since they have no bar they also had no juices for the kids. Still, it was delicious.

Was taken there by friends who have been regular guests for years. They did the ordering at the sushi bar from a Japanese chef who was a true seasoned professional who was a master at preparation and presentation. It was one of the best sushi places I have been to with everything very fresh and delicious. Tried perhaps ten different... More

ate here and vowed to return.. this is really great sushi and seems authentic in every way from the Japanese chefs to the meal presentations. i found myself regretting being full as the combinations of flavours were so pleasant. i will gladly return here and was pleasantly surprised that the cost was far below the lofty prices of Recida Blvd.

Restaurant Koi is an informal sushi and Japanese food restaurant. The sushi chefs are Japanese and the fish is always extremely fresh. The downside is be prepared for a wait on weekends.

I've been going to Koi for years. They always have excellent sushi, and I am a big fan of their lunch specials. It is one of the few places you can randomly order anything on the menu and be guaranteed something fantastic. Sadly, the parking in the business center has gotten more scarce over the years. It means the businesses... More

My family raved about the sushi. They said it was some of the best they had ever had. But I struggled to find vegan options. I had the seaweed salad and the vegetable roll which were both very good. The miso soup was not vegan. I wish they offered more vegan options such as a vegan teriyaki plate and brown... More

They open at 5 and usually there's a wait right away. Well worth the wait and price. Take a walk around Main street after dinner.

We love this place. Great cuisine, plum wine, varied choices. Pleasant ambiance. Busy most evenings; service can be a bit slow so plan a relaxing dinner.

You can not find better any where close. Fresh, beautiful, flavor, cold beer! Our favorite. If in town- this is your sushi stop! Enjoy!
