We enjoyed our meal at Koi Kawa. The food was good and the sushi fresh. Prices were decent as well. At lunch we could see the nice view out the windows of the river, although we did not have a window seat. I am glad I read the reviews to learn that the restaurant is the in back of the... More

My family and I celebrated a birthday on Broadway at Koi Kawa. Dinner for 5 +1(9mo) with appetizers and entrees galore. We tried the mizo soup, rainbow rolls and the edamame. Very flavorful dishes set in urban-themed dishware. The entrees were excellent; I highly recommend the salmon sashimi. Price is fair for this location, we will make a return visit.... More

Prices are great and the food is even better! Try the specialty rolls. I recommend the special sara with cream cheese and the sandra roll tempura fried. Miso soup is good too. Sake is very reasonable.

This isn't a review on their food (my family thought it was good, I was fair from impressed but I didn't eat sushi and still wasn't impressed). Personally I like what little fish I eat, cooked, but my youngest son just graduated Air Force Boot camp and wanted Sushi. No problem, we found Koi Kawa on the web, so we... More

It's in a quiet shopping center. The food is amazing. Have tried multiple items and have never been disappointed. Try sushi rolls from the menu handout that is not attached to the regular menu. Everything is super reasonable in price too!

We had edamame and sushi rolls. The rolls were inexpertly made and so loosely rolled that they fell apart when we picked them up. The ratio of rice to other ingredients was off - the rolls had way too much rice. Two rolls were OK in that the fish tasted fresh enough that I wasn't afraid to eat them, however,... More

We enjoy Koi Kawa on every visit. We venture out to other sushi restaurants & always come back to koi kawa. The sushi is always fresh & prepared properly. They have a cucumber salad with this incredible dressing. The hot saki is great also. Ambiance is not the best compared to other places, but for a great meal & great... More

I am a huge fan of Japenese food and a big critic. I always judge a place on quality based on a simple order of something everyone else has. The crunch roll was moist and the best I ever had. The rest of the food was to dies for. I enjoy my edame salted and it wasn't, but Not everyone... More

Have eaten at every sushi place in town. Koi Kawa is good and priced right. Nothing fancy, but staff is always nice and clean environment. Everything I have tried has been good.
