After 3 weeks of S. African cuisine we were ready for a change of taste. What a great surprise to find Asian food here. We enjoyed the dinner so much that we went back the following week. Seeing new faces on our first visit the manager Freddie stopped by to welcome us. Our servers Abel and Fortune were very helpful.... More

Koi hardly ever disappoints as far the food is concerned. We shared a tuna and endamame bean salad and had the crispy calamari and the rock prawn tempura as mains. The salad was excellent, as was the crispy calamari. The rock prawn tempura is best avoided, small shrimps with too much mayo. We were efficiently served by Ronald. This is... More

Koi is a well regarded restaurant located in the heart of Sandton's financial district and is particularly busy as a popular lunch spot for those who work in Sandton, especially those who populate the offices around the JSE. The ambience is pleasant and the food is good. But Koi is known for its top rate fusion food. But it's just... More

I am a regular at this restaurant. Great sushi. I love the new style sashimi. The food is excellent but quite overpriced.

This restaurant always dishes good food in an energetic environment . Service is on point and the Rosebank branch is a great location. For me I find it too pricey, but evidently with popularity that is not the norm

The food in Koi is quite good. The sushi was excellent, fresh and tasty. the other dishes were also good. The atmosphere was quite nice. The price was a bit expensive for Johannesburg prices but not expensive at all comparing to most European cities. all in all this was a very enjoyable experience.

Interesting contemporary Asian cuisine restaurant - my most best tempura prawns ever! At R72 its a gift. But don't forget to also try their stunning crispy calamari at R88. The menu is extensive and these are only my favorites. The service is good and the waiters are knowledgeable and friendly. It's definitely a go-to for Asian fusion.

Went here for a business lunch and the food is fantastic. Had the mixed dim sum to start with - extremely good flavours and really nicely cooked. Then had the sesame seared Tuna with wilted green veg - probably some of the best tuna i've ever had. Cooked to perfection, loads of flavours going on and melt in the mouth.... More

Our visit to Koi last night, was by far the best we have had there. Every plate we ordered was fantastic. There have been some changes there as of late which really add such attention to detail. The service was excellent. The new items on the menu are excellent, like the spicy edamame beans, which were mind blowing! The dim... More
