“Great fod, great vibe!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 6, 2013

Try the sashimi platter and the hoi sin calamari starter (even as a main course), this place has great food and very friendly and good service. Great vibe, always book ahead, it is quite popular.

“Sushi king!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2013

I love going to Koi during a lunch break for the best sushi in town. They have good service, a nice atmosphere and it is easy to break away for a decent meal.

“I like their style.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2013

I liked the style of the decor (contemporary, simple, tasteful) and the food we had was of a very high standard. I loved the dim sum. If I lived near there, I'd go there often for sure.
