*Apologies in advance for the lengthiness of this review, but the experience had to be detailed* I recently visited the restaurant on a chilly Johannesburg evening, ravenous and in search of what I used to believe could be categorized as great sushi. To order, I...More

The restaurant serves some meats and japonese food options. I’ve ordered a Grilled Lamb with fried vegetables with a cost of ~230R. The dish took a while to be served and it was good, but nothing remarkable. The lamb was good and came with a...More

Christmas Shopping is stressful, manic and can make anyone feel overwhelmed. Koi was our haven of tranquility in the midst of the storm. A quick lunch with friend was all it took to bring balance back to the madness. We had a couple of starters...More

After a few disappointing Japanese meals in Johannesburg, this place really made the grade. Great selection of sushi, good wine selection and very friendly service - recommended!

Went for business meal. Dimsum for starters set the tone, with a Seared Tuna as main. Best tuna I have had, just sliced through it with a normal knife. Would recommend it.

My wife and I ate dinner here. Service was disorganized. It took a while to get menus, then a while to place our order. The place was busy. Lots of families and medium-sized groups. Wine list is ok. You can do better nearby.
