Service is good, food is well cooked, menu is interesting and the buzz in the place (during workday lunches) is good. The dim sum is great, they used to do a dim sum platter (containing two pieces each of five different ones) that was... More

Came here mid-afternoon on a Saturday. Had the place almost to myself. Only one other table. The food and service were excellent. I just wanted something light, so went for Dim Sum and the seafood soup. Both were excellent. Prices are good if you consider the quality of what you get. I will be back.

Stopped in to Koi for business lunch. The outside seating was great for a meeting over lunch and the menu boasts a wide variety of dishes. Will definitely be back for a business lunch at Koi

This is one of my default restaurants when lazy to cook or am driving home and want to place an order and collect. Amazing new style salmon sashimi at this and the Rosebank one.

I don't get it. Charging ridiculous prices for average food may fool some people into believing it's really great food, but frankly, not.
