From what i have heard about Koi I must say I went in with pretty high expectations for the sushi. I was NOT disappointed. We started off with some dim sum which was near perfect, really flavourful and good balance between the filling and the dumpling. In general the menu is expensive. The service was ok, our waiter looked like... More

Koi still has the very best sushi in town! The service is always efficient and professional! The food is always sublime and quick to the table! They always are willling to accommodate us with our kids even though it is largely a restaurant for adults!

We ordered the crispy beef and it was all crisp and no beef. Told the manager and he apologized . Though we were still billed for the uneaten, un-edible meal.

Level of service is poor, and lacking in attentiveness. Dim sum was average, but the sushi was surprisingly bad and grossly overpriced, looked very amateur, all the pieces were different sizes, falling apart, rice was underdone, amongst other gripes. There are MUCH better places to go in the area

We went to dinner with our tour operators to recap and evaluate our 62 day trip to Southern Africa. Three of us shared salmon and tuna maki and a tuna mid rare filet with baby bok choy. All were prepared well and were quite fresh and good to taste. My wife had the duck with pancakes and hoisin sauce also... More

We go here often, our kids also love it. Sushi is good as are the other items, service is always very good and its well priced for what you get. Great seating outside with an area the kids can mess about in. Its a popular spot and has learnt that over time, consistent in terms of food, presentation and service.... More

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
