I am not sure whether Koi is an independent - it reminded me of PK Chang or one of those large chains. It is dark, noisy, high ceilings, loud sushi bar. The menu says three star super-spicy... but the food wasn't all that spicy. For ordinary run of the mill Asian, it was convenient and pretty good. The service was excellent - our waiter was young and friendly and made some good drink recommendations. I would go back.
