Very good value

We went for lunch with friends who lived nearby. A thoroughly satisfying experience with high standard of ingredients and preparation. Waitresses were efficient and helpful, and the combination menu lunches were not only tasty but ample in size. I would definitely go back.

We ate there the day after Christmas and it was packed. This was our first visit and we loved the food and the service was great. I had the Sukiyaki and it was perfect, a melange of tender beef, green onions, tofu, Bok Choy, yam noodles, mushrooms and Napa cabbage in a savory broth. Everyone agreed it was great. My... More

We have tried various Japanese restaurants in the Seal Beach and Long Beach area over the last few years. Koi is the best. The sushi is fresh and yummy. There are always new selections on the board to try and enjoy.

Quaint and unassuming as you enter you think it's a typical SoCal sushi place but you are in for a pleasant surprise! The sushi here is second to none I've had other than Japan. Everything was top quality, fast service and very pleasant. I really enjoyed their spectacular uni and the "shrimp boat" which is a sweet shrimp with tobiko... More

Restaurant Koi is an excellent choice for tasty lunch specials. For $8.95, and up, you can get a 3 course lunch with soup, a salad with choice of dressing, and your choice of entrees, like sushi, tempura, teriyaki, and combos. I had an interesting bento box meal with grilled chicken and onions and egg. It is a good location to... More

We had an early evening dinner, and the service was not up to the usual good standard. That said, the food is always excellent and "up to standard." And they try to accommodate requests for little extras.

If you really want a treat, order omakase. I did it for my birthday and it was sensational. The sushi never stopped coming and everything was delicious. Otherwise, You can order the tuna, asking for one order of each...you get 4 different styles. The scallops are the best I have ever had. Their specials are also good. Everything is good.

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.
