Famous for its unique and mouth-watering interpretation of Japanese cuisine. Upscale Japanese fare is given a jolt of new life through an innovative use of ingredients, resulting in refreshing and exciting flavor combinations. Crispy Rice with Spice Tuna, an addictive version of the classic spicy tuna roll, featuring warm grilled rice topped with a thick layer of cool, savory tuna. Baked Crab Roll, for which succulent fresh crab meat is wrapped in a thin rice paper dotted with sesame seeds and baked to perfection. Hamachi Fusion with Soy-Citrus and Truffle Essence all artfully plated by Koi’s skilled culinary team.

Had a business lunch there and from top to bottom they got it right. The service was top notch, the atmosphere was great, the food was outstanding, and the price was more than reasonable.

Everything we had was delicious. The lobster tacos were yummy and the sweet chillie shrimp tempura rolls were too. We ordered the short ribs which were very tender and tasty. Deserts .... You must try the banana spring rolls and the coconut creme brûlée. Great experience and attentive service.

Service was friendly although wouldn't recommend the sushi bar as loud and chefs didn't interact with patrons. Food was ok but not particularly special. I had the black cod but lacked the flavour that had made it an Asian fusion specialty in so many restaurants. Felt worse for wear the next day - would definitely avoid choosing that dish!

The first thing you will notice is the ambience. Very relaxing and instantly settles you from the crazy chaos of the city outside.

That's the second time we visit this place, and will return again. Everything is so fresh and tasty! Location is wonderful, right outside Briant park so you can order out. We sat on the bar, which was nice but less pleasant than the actual restaurant.
