We were in the mood for proper Japanese cuisine, without having to order the obligatory sushi. A glance at the sashimi on the menu described it as 'new style' which smacked of somebody trying to 'westernise' the menu to the tastes of those who have no idea. Sashimi is what it is. Jazzing it up is risky... So we ordered... More

Been to a few Asian restaurants in Johannesburg and this was definitely at the top of the list. They make things from scratch and the quality and flavor are very good. We ordered the steamed dumplings filled with salmon and cream cheese, which was surprisingly not bad. As for the tom yum soup, it wasn't overly salty and had all... More

Our experience was up there with the best anywhere. The service was impeccable, the food memorable - we all opted for dim Sim starters and the seared tuna. We have never had better. Their wine list has personal favorites also. Really look forward to returning again and again. Hats off to the manager and team.

This is an exceptionally good restaurant. Reservations sometimes necessary, but quite flexible, especially when they recognize your mobile on the system...some of the best sushi in Johannesburg! The new(but old new style sashimi, as they have a newer version-my favourite is the older version!)

Quality of food not up to standard. Orient in Melrose Arch offers better food at a lower price point

We went to Koi for dinner while we were in Jo'burg as we found its ad in Qantas magazine and also was mentioned by our hotel and the tour guide. The service, the food and everything about it were excellent. The wine list is good. It doesn't have the big menu but what we have had were very delicious especially... More

Went for dinner on Friday night, ordered the Dim Sum for starter and a "chefs special" noodle dish and the crispy duck. After a few minutes the waiter arrived back to tell us that the duck had just sold out in a half full restaurant. I changed my order to the Wok Sole. Very mediocre dish to say the least.... More

More 3.5 than 4 stars...After a few attempts at finding a good Japanese cuisine focused restaurant in Joburg, I have to admit that Koi was a nice surprise. Although, we haven't tried the sushi yet, but the small plates offerings that we had and the sake were quite exceptional. We had edamame to start and they were okay, so I... More
