“Sushi bar in the heart of Athens”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 9, 2014

+ Sushi bar with very logical prices
+ Sushi quality is average
- the sushi portions are small
- the variety is limited
- the place is so crowed and they do not accept reservations
- the Asahi beer is unacceptably expensive
- there is no japanese tea in the menu
Overall: try it if you are a sushi beginner and/or if you want to have a fair ratio of quality/price.

“A "must" place for sushi lovers :)”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 5, 2014

Sushi in Athens can unfortunately still be a tricky decision.
Some places in the city are overpriced,overrated and with bad sushi. But then,there is this places, which is pretty decent, value-for money with the rolls between 4-4,8 euros. It is not the place to go for a romantic candle-lit date, but more for a quick bite, since the decor is quite simple and sometimes the service can be slow. But for me that simply wants to eat sushi from a chef that knows how to make it properly and at great prices, well, that's all I care about. :)

“Delicious, reasonably-priced sushi”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 3, 2014

Koi Sushi Bar is a great little place in the heart of Athens. Only a minute away from Syntagma Square, it serves as a delicious destination because:
- the location makes it easily accessible
- the food remains faithful to the japanese cuisine
- the menu is simple, yet provides a variety of dishes
- all the sushi dishes that I've tried have been delicious so far
- the prices are more than reasonable for the quality of the food - you could get full with 10 euro.
- great for visits of friends, couples, solo, and business. Wouldn't recommend it for families.
- suitable for lunch, late lunch, dinner, late dinner

What needs work is:
- the atmosphere; the place is small and can get quite crowded.
- the service; service is not bad but I the waiters need to be more "aware" and helpful. Sometimes I had to ask for things twice.

“Great potential, but.”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 28, 2014

I was happy when I noticed that sushi is becoming more popular in Greece and the prices are finally going down, thus I decided to try this restaurant. The place seemed packed and the food was at affordable leaving a good first impression. However, when I asked for us to move to a table from the bar stand I got told that it was against the restaurant’s policy in a very belittling way highlighting the elitist attitude the waiter. About the food now, the portions were medium to small size but acceptable for the price and had average taste. I also had an Asahi Japanese Beer which I found ridiculously overpriced for just 33cl even at sushi bars at soho you would get half a litre for about the same price. I hope that places with great potential such as Koi Sushi will be more customer friendly and review its “policies”.
