The best Sushi we had on our trip by a long way. Food was superb and they were flexible enough to change some elements in their set menus. Location was nice also and seemed relatively safe (so long as you stayed in the walled area.) Service was quick and friendly, wine was also very good. A great night out.

So many great dishes....so little time. The new style sushi dishes are great although a little rich. Yum!

You will find all manner of Asian dishes on the menu, Chinese, Japanese, Thai and a few others all have a spot. The food is excellent, prepared well and true to the original dish. Order a few dishes and share, you won't be sorry. The wine selection is good with many options offered by the glass as well. This is fast become a very trendy hangout - if you're looking for a table at dinner time, its wise to book in advance.

Rosebank has undergone quite a transformation in the last year. The addition of The Firs area next to the Hyatt Hotel is one of the many nice new areas. Several restaurants clustered around a fountain and some trees make for a relaxing setting.
We tried Koi restaurant and were all pleasantly surprised. They have a nice selection of seating with tables and chairs as well as comfy sofas where you can sip a cocktail and entertain yourself people watching. We started with some drinks and ordered some dim sum to nibble on. It was great. Nice variety and not the leathery soapy stuff you sometimes get, but full of flavor.

After that great starter we decided to continue with dinner. Crispy duck on pancakes, some curries and salads all very tasty and fresh. One of us tried the sushi which was the only thing that was only mediocre. Service throughout was very attentive and friendly. Prices a little on the high side, but not outrageous. Crispy duck R135 and curries just under R100 is not cheap. The food was definitely worth it though.

A place to come back to.
