Stumbled upon this place one evening and thoroughly enjoyed our meal: mixed Dim sum followed by Bo Bun, beef with chilli, lime, fresh coriander, mint and lemongrass. Very reasonably priced with a tranquil atmosphere and a really warm, friendly host. Just the thing after a day of chips and beer. Recommended!

Quite welcoming but, otherwise the food is from a lukewarm 'buffet' which conveys no taste or flavout whatsoever. You can eat a lot but, the blandness of the cuisine is extraordinary given the range of tastes and flavours in Viet cooking.

small vietnamese restaurant in a shopping area, tables too close to each other, fast service. The food is ok, but nothing special. Prices are far too high: my vegetarin guest spent €23.00 for a vegetable only salad, a smallish plate of fried soia noodles with a few bits of vegetables inside and a tea. I had some chicken with my... More

The place is not big but very nice and warm. You feel a bit like in their living room and they try their best to make you feel this way! The staff is charming and the food was really good. Not as in most places where when you order noodles with scampis, you just have three or four of them!... More

Ate here as part of a large group who were in Brussels on business - we ended up here by accident as we had not made any arrangements. Food very nice - I had one of the four vegetarian tofu options and it was really tasty. Dimsum also good and the mint tea after dinner was lovely and served with... More

It seems to me that KOI could be a decent deal when you need to add an asian touch in your food routine. We had nems, spicy prawns with vegetables, prawns with curry and a salad. Although the flavors were not the one that take you in paradise, the ingredients were fresh, the portions adequate, the waitress (owner?) extremely gently,... More

Owner was very friendly and welcoming but seemed overworked and in need of help. Busy and popular place. Food was fine. I had duck and it was succulent throughout. Great Chinese lager 'Tsingtao'. Trendy decor but still a casual and relaxing atmosphere as I often dont feel that relaxed in trendy post modern kinda joints. No english menu's.

A nice enough place, friendly service, with pretty standard Chinese / Vietnamese fare. I'd say more Chinese than Vietnamese. Considering the reviews, I had expected a lot more though. It was just a average, like many a hyped place in Chatlain. No cards accepted.

excellent cantonese duck, tasty fried rice, and very pleasant service by super friendly owner. Great choice for a casual diner for two or more in the lovely Ixelles/Chatelain area.
