We love the food here, sushi and tempura, and the salads are outstanding. There are two wonderful choices of dressing.

Koi is the place my family has been going to for at least 27 years now. Koi is where I learnt to eat wasabi or to eat with chopsticks and develop my love for Japanese cuisine and culture. The owner still remembers to this day that 26 years ago my mother could not fit her pregnant belly (me) under the... More

We went here recently for sushi and sake. Both were great! My only complaint is that it is very bright inside. While the food is a little pricey, it is worth it. The service was also great!

We frequently eat here, as it is in our neighborhood. Always good service, and wonderful Japanese style seafood and sushi. Make reservations if you have a large party or plan to go between 6 and 8 pm.

The fish was fresh as I tried their sashimi dinner plate and the sunomono was very tasty. Feels like a very cozy, family owned establishment. I'll definitely go back.

We went for lunch with friends who lived nearby. A thoroughly satisfying experience with high standard of ingredients and preparation. Waitresses were efficient and helpful, and the combination menu lunches were not only tasty but ample in size. I would definitely go back.

We ate there the day after Christmas and it was packed. This was our first visit and we loved the food and the service was great. I had the Sukiyaki and it was perfect, a melange of tender beef, green onions, tofu, Bok Choy, yam noodles, mushrooms and Napa cabbage in a savory broth. Everyone agreed it was great. My... More

We have tried various Japanese restaurants in the Seal Beach and Long Beach area over the last few years. Koi is the best. The sushi is fresh and yummy. There are always new selections on the board to try and enjoy.

Quaint and unassuming as you enter you think it's a typical SoCal sushi place but you are in for a pleasant surprise! The sushi here is second to none I've had other than Japan. Everything was top quality, fast service and very pleasant. I really enjoyed their spectacular uni and the "shrimp boat" which is a sweet shrimp with tobiko... More
