We have been going to Koi Kawa for several years. It has always been very good sushi rolls with average decor and friendly waitstaff. We hadn't been in awhile because of all the construction going on near the restaurant. We went for a casual Sunday lunch. The tempura appetizer was great! The sushi rolls, however, were just average and they... More

If only my 2nd Roll would have arrived on time, and 2 of our dishes/glasses weren't dirty. Services was extremely slow. But its a truly location. Its all the way in the back

I am not surprised to see Zagat has rated this among the top restaurants of any style in San Antonio. I visit here regularly for lunch with colleagues or dinner with friends and enjoy the variety and quality of the food and preparation. Toro (when available) or ahi, unagi, and salmon are among my favorites for sashimi. Then there is... More

I live nearby and love sushi. I've tried a couple of the more popular places in SA, which have all been mediocre to disappointing. I know, we're in an area where it's not that popular of a cuisine, but a girl can always hope, right? Well when I found this place my dreams were fulfilled. The sushi is ALWAYS fresh,... More

I used to always eat sushi when I was young in California. Now I go to Koi Kawa on my birthday every year. I love their tempura lunch plate. The tempura is perfection and so is the miso soup. My niece loves their sushi. Something wonderful here for everyone. The view overlooking Brackenridge Park. Only drawback for me is the... More

Nothing mass produced about this place, every dish is prepared with attention to detail. This is not zushi sushi, it's better! Try the fiesta roll, avocado cup salads, and streamed dumplings! Japanese people eat here.

This place has been here forever. It is frequented by locals primarily. They have a nice selection of rolls and very very fresh fish.

I like sushi chefs that apply their creativity to offer up unique maki rolls that make you want to come back. Anyone can make a tuna roll. Special rolls abound. Try the Bank Roll-salmon on the inside with yellowtail on top. The Sunset Roll is also very tasty. It features yellowtail, salmon, smelt roe and avocado.

Sushi and service were very good - and the price was very inexpensive - at least compared to prices in Canada. The interior is unlike any sushi restaurant we have experienced - kind of rustic, unsophisticated. Get a table at the back window with its view to the surprisingly bucolic exterior.
