If you are looking for a low cost sushi meal, this is not your place. They do have nice lunch specials, and on Tuesday nights their appetizers and wines are half priced - and they have a decent wine list which they are in the process of upgrading even more. The restaurant interior is nicely done, with booths against the windows, tables in the middle - a lovely, quiet dining spot.
The Amazing Sushi Dinner is a good buy, most of their appetizers are good - although the Dim Sum Platter is only partial dim sum type items. The Tempura Rock Shrimp is especially good. The Imperial Koi Roll (which has fried banana in it) and the Angry Dragon Roll are both excellent. There vegetable fried rice as a side dish is awesome - not on the menu as a side, but just ask, they'll do it.
We tried the Imperial Koi Love Boat, which is 25 pieces or so of sushi and sashimi, which is very nice and plenty of it, and the presentation is beautiful. The sushi masters here (there are 2, with 6 apprentices) are artist - it takes 20 years to become a Master, I was told. To me the real star of this restaurant is the sashimi.
They have good quality sake, both hot or cold, filtered and unfiltered. The cold may take some getting used to, but it is good. They have a number of oriental beers, as well.
The service here is generally good, generally, though some of the wait staff lose focus occasionally.
It will be interesting to see if this upscale sushi restaurant will continue to do well in Greensboro, a town that seems to ignore many good restaurants whatever the type or cost level, and seems to have trouble attracting and holding them.
