“Good food at a busy restaurant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 5, 2012

I have been to Koi several times in the past 12 months. The food and service is always good. If you're going on a busy night (like Saturday) make sure you book ahead, but they will always try to accomodate you and set a time when you need to vacate the table by.
I don't feel the prices here are any better or worse than places around Nelson Mandela Square.

“Good Japanese & Thai food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 23, 2012

I would surely go again. Amazing restaurant with great ambience and good service. Very different and unique items more on the Japanese and Thai variety. Price slightly high though. But worth a visit.

“Still one of my favorite places, but...”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 12, 2011

I love Koi. The food and the service are amazing, but it's becoming ridiculously over priced and I don't go nearly as often as I used to
