If you want a young vibe , fashionistas and fresh sashimi or Peking duck, visit this restaurant. Crime brûlée worth the calories

I am die hard Asian food fan... but I was disappointed at Koi. Not even one Asian face eating there, so I know their food is not real Chinese. But anyway, it was ok experience for a Monday night dinner. Cheers!

Dim sum platter - 8 piece combo of soft and tasty dim sum.
Kyoto - typical sushi/sashimi/nigiri 22 piece combo. Fresh and big pieces sashimi.
New style Sushi/Sashimi - It was a good surprise, advised by the waiter.
Koi lemon tart with ice cream - good without being impressive.
Great service too!

A couple of friends kept telling me how good Sushi tastes at Kois, I told them to go there. We went there, they have a very friendly service. They have a large variety of Sushi. Special sushi for the restaurant, and delicious sushi. The dessert is quite limited, they could have put more to dessert.

I would go there again, and again, and again. Would I suggest it? Of course.

Just returned from eating here with a group of colleagues. My food was spectacular, and by the looks of their happy faces, theirs was too.
The menu is huge, the outdoor setting - welcoming and pleasant.
I had their Tom Yum soup (great flavor, large bowl), fresh rolls (super fresh rice paper, juicy mango), and several orders of sashimi/seviche. I over-ordered because I had no idea how generous their portions were. Don't make the same mistake - pace yourself and order as you go. Their rooibos tea was excellent (try Carpe Diem). Definitely going back there for a steak salad on Thursday (or the ostrich burger, haven't decided yet, but definitely returning).
