Yes, the food.
Finally a good balancing between “plane vanilla” fish&soya sauce and some experiments.

Yes, the location.
I was lucky enough that weather was mild and not too much people around, but the overall atmosphere was really okay.

Yes, the price.
Maybe the best positive surprise, given also the bottles of good wine we had!

Always a great foodie experience.The small plates are not so small so we over ordered. However it was mostly good. I do feel that the management needs to be upgraded in terms of personal presentation and overall confidence. Also the waiter got our dishes mixed up so a system is required. Overall thumbs up and three stars.

Welcomed with gentleness and smiles at reception. Quickly attended to with professionalism. Waiting staff know their menu and couple advise on light meal options. Succulent meals, freshly made. Big ups to the chef!

Oh my goodness I have tried to look for better dumplings but Koi has the best! They also have great non-alcoholic refreshing drinks. Their sushi is also fabulous. Its pricey though and I miss the variety in the dumplings they use to offer.

Koi has an interesting menu that offers many flavours. We tried a couple of different dishes and not all of them was very tasty. My favourite was the dim sum. I would've liked the waiters to be more friendly. I felt like it was all business. Get order. Bring food. Get money. Next please. Sometimes a little friendly banter or asking about the food and whether everything was enjoyable will just add to the atmosphere.
