“Good food, hibachi dining available”
Reviewed January 1, 2013

Rolla is blessed with three really great Japanese restaurants (Kyoto, Koi, and Mottomo). Koi is the newest of the three, and the only one that has a hibachi bar. Also has a small cocktail bar seating area. The restaurant ambience at Koi is more upscale/urban, whereas the other Japanese restaurants in Rolla are a little more homey and quiet. I've eaten at Koi a few times, they have tasty sushi, and my absolute favorite item on the menu is their seafood soup!

“Enjoyed both our visits so far”
Reviewed November 23, 2012

The seaweed salad was awesome. We've had good luck with the koi & lobster rolls. While it is louder than a traditional restaurant, it's a festive atmosphere and one which we've enjoyed on Friday nights. Both times, we sat at the "bar" and didn't do the hibatchi grill....but, that's more our style anyway. Would definitely come again and travel about 40 miles to go so you know we must like it! Oh, one last thing...not a lot of parking and kind of awkward but, all in all, no big deal.

“The "new" sushi place in town”
Reviewed August 9, 2012

" Koi Rolla Chinese Japanese Restaurant" (wow - that's a mouthful) joined the other two Rolla sushi restaurants and has enjoyed a steady business ever since. Decided to see (after the big opening rush) how the restaurant compares.

Koi is more than "just" sushi - they also do the "dinner is the show" thing with chefs chopping and frying and banging and tossing shrimps at you off the grill at the Japanese steak house seating portion of the restaurant. Haven't tried that (at Koi) - but the folks who were sitting there all seemed to enjoy themselves.

The sushi and noodle bowls and other menu items were fine - but nothing to boast about.

You'll enjoy it if you enjoy the loud atmosphere with your food - if you're looking for a more sedate experience you may want to look elsewhere.
