This restaurant has great food and great atmosphere. The DJ plays at night and the locals from Johannesburg can be found in this spot. I had a great time and great sushi!

“Good except pad thai”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 18, 2013

A pity they serve a Pad Thai like this! Everything else was great. Sushi really good. Accurate service and good location.
But: Do not order Pad Thai. It is awful.
Koi management: Teach your cooks how to prepare Pad Thai or take it from the menu!

“Fabulous birthday lunch! ”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 15, 2013

We went to KOI for my friends birthday, and it was as usual outstanding! We enjoyed sushi and dim sum, and the choice was excellent. They have a great vegetarian selection.

The ginger tarimisu was a fantastic end to a great meal.

“Great Sushi!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 9, 2013

I've eaten here many times and I've never had a bad meal. Always order sushi and I am never disappointed. The staff are friendly and the decor is clean. It can get a bit loud inside, but a full restaurant says something is going right!

“Koi has seen the last of me”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 5, 2013 via mobile

I keep expecting better and keep being disappointed - over the last three visits I've had overcooked tuna, dried out Peking duck and a roast duck salad that had a dressing that was just sweet and awful. I go back because others keep telling me telling me, they've had great meals. hasta la vista Koi!
