What a great spot. Had the lettuce wraps, scallion biscuits, pot roast and fire bird. The wraps were fantastic, the biscuits were good, the pot roast had an Asian flavor that was a little off and the Fire Bird was fantastic. The atmosphere was pretty cool and the service was good. Highly recommend... read more

I first heard about Blue Koi on Food Networks "Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives." I even wrote it down in hopes of visiting one day. Well the big day arrived and I was charmed with the ambiance. Not fancy and definitely eclectic and fun. It was warm and inviting. We arrived about 12:30 on a Saturday afternoon. There was a good... More

We didn't know the same family that owns our favorite restaurant (genghis khan Mongolian grill) also owns Blue Koi. We had 2 appetizers (pork dumplings are worth a trip all by themselves) & some sort of duck burrito (the duck was cooked very nicely...but it was messy & hard to share). I had the featured special ramen soup (broth was... More

Loooved the chicken dumplings and veggies! Fair price for the portions! Cool neighborhood in general; felt like you left KC for a very hipster town :)

we went to this place from a DDD recommendation and WOW, they were spot on. I had the shrimp curry and it was the best I've had in a long time. Ask for samples of things, as they are willing to let you taste, which was a big plus. Reasonably priced fast service and good food. I wish I was... More

I have never had anything bad at Blue Koi. My favorite thing is the shrimp with asparagus. Great tip --you can request to have it served over a bed of spinach instead of rice if you are watching carbs or calories. I'm sure it's in many of the reviews, but the crispy tofu is great, and I could just eat... More

LOVE this place. Small and comfortable. But the star is the food! My favorite dishes are the Crispy Tofu w/Spicy Awesome Sauce and the Chinese Style Pot Roast w/noodles. The meat is so tender you can eat it with chop sticks. It just falls apart and the flavor is just out of this world. Don't pass up the Blue Koi!

While taking a family trip to KC for the weekend, we decided to seek out this place for lunch as we had seen it on Diner's Drive-ins and Dives. We ordered the Fire Bird with duck, chicken with Black bean sauce, Crispy Organic Tofu With Spicy Awesome Sauce, the Shrimp Pork and chicken dumplings, and the Spicy Chili pepper wontons.... More
