Description: At Koi Abu Dhabi, imaginative dishes are inspired by traditional Japanese preparations, then deconstructed and infused with modern California accents. Modern palates will truly be inspired by Koi's Japanese fusion and traditional dishes. These creations, along with innovative signature cocktails, are coupled with an atmosphere that evokes both intrigue and serenity, transporting guests for an unforgettable experience. Among Koi's signature dishes are Crispy Rice Topped with Spicy Tuna, Hamachi Fusion, and Spicy Crunchy Yellowtail Tartare. Signature dishes from the kitchen include Miso-Bronzed Black Cod with Seasonal Vegetables, Peppercorn Filet Mignon, and Grilled Sea Bass with a Honey Balsamic Glaze, Shiso-Pea Coulis. The sushi chefs present some of the freshest fish in town including yellowtail, toro, octopus, snow crab and uni, in addition to signature rolls. With six locations worldwide including Bangkok, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, New York - Bryant Park, New York - SoHo and now Abu Dhabi, Koi continues to stake its claim as the international leader in contemporary Japanese cuisine. At Koi, there's something for everyone.

“Finally in Abu Dhabi”
Reviewed October 17, 2013

Koi restaurant and lounge finally opened in the capital. Food is simply amazing. decoration is more like a lounge than a resturant but no harm. It was a bit heavily air conditioned and too dark but the taste is so good. I already visited twice in a month and be back soon.
