Authentic Japanese

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.

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!
