We're searching that area for non-tourist trap restaurants and this seemed enough out of the ordinary to avoid overpriced bad food. It faces Faneuil Hall so that may impact things more than I had hoped. On a Sunday night - lots of room - no...wait. inside and Ouside seating available. Mongolian fried rice was very spicy and fun - nice heat. Jjajangmuyn is a classic Korean comfort food - having only had instant noodle versions, I was looking forward to a more realistic experience. But, it was just brown, not umami or flavors, just brown. After half a bowl, I had to just give up because it was so unfulfilling. While brisket is mentioned high on the description, I found only a few grams - almost vegetarian friendly. Just not enough to make us want to return. Both entrees topped 14 dollars before tax/tip.More

Avoid. We stopped by for dinner with 3 kids and wish we had just gone somewhere else. We have traveled to Seoul and love Korean food and this is not good at all. The short ribs were tasteless, the fried rice was full of sauce...and over cooked and my husband's soup was salty. Service was awful. Safe your money and go elsewhere.More

I know that this place is not Japanese, and their focus is not on sushi, but WOW the sushi was horrible. My two friends and I did the all you can eat (29$) and there was literally mayonnaise and bacon on my sushi. The service...was extremely slow even though we were the only people there for hours. The worst sushi I have ever had in my life.More

Hi Chloe, Sorry about your experience! Please email us directly at info@koyboston.com. We are definitely a fusion korean pan asian restaurant- not Japanese, but we hope to change your mind about Korean cuisine.

I ordered delivery, and the sweet and spicy wings were some of the best I've ever had! Perfect levels of spice!

I came here for the sushi, waited an hour, got seated and was told by my waitress that there was absolutely no sushi. A total waste of time. Next time there is a whole part of the menu unavailable the host should be letting people...know before they wait that long. Will never come again.More

Had dinner at Koy last night with another couple. Had some amazing flavors. First of all when they tell you something is hot and spicy, believe them! I've often gone to other Asian inspired restaurants and ordered the Drunken noodles and the menu indicates it's...a hot spicy dish, and it's just not so. I like spicy food. But OMG their Drunken Noodles was the hottest Drunken Noodles I've ever had. Whoa. Very flavorful, but be sure you like Heat! My husband got Master Changs Angry chicken, also pretty hot and very flavorful (basically general tso's chicken). We ordered the unagi roll and spicy tuna roll and lobster rangoon for apps. I didn't care for the unagi roll, as thats just not my preference, but the other ones were very good. The mai tais were delish and packed a punch! My girlfriend got the El Pazzo drink and that had some real spice to it as well. Our server was excellent, even the chef came out to greet us after our meals which was really nice. Great atmosphere and not so loud as we couldn't have a conversation. Just right. Thanks for a great experience and would love to go back and try more of their dishes.More

Excellent Asian food, Chinese Korean Thai mix... really enjoyed the kimchi fried rice and coconut shrimp curry...-and a few drinks including a delicious lychee sangria

The food came fast. They used REAL everything from plates, to sauce container, cutlery, and napkins! They did not even serve plastic straws! I love it because they seem very aware of the plastic pollution and climate crisis we face! Their coconut shrimp is everything!...They served really good food! They kept asking us how we were doing. At one point, I think, a man, who seemed was the owner asked us too, which was very nice! They are very nice people!More

Came here for a business lunch and really liked the menu. Broad set of Korean fare, as well as sushi, though the sushi choices were limited. Great choices of dumplings - I would recommend the lobster/cream cheese and the pork/tofu ones specifically. Sushi was fine....Service was good though it wasn't busy at the time for lunch that day. Nice interior ambiance though it was somewhat dark inside. Location across from Quincy Market was a plus also.More
