Stopped in here with family for a birthday dinner as it had vegan options and it didn't disappoint. The place is cozy but you don't feel too compressed. Our server was very friendly and attentive but slowed down a bit as the night got busier. Our food came out quick though and was very tasty. I had the Bonsai beef... More

Got together with some family over Christmas. Since we love Jazz, we went to Koi. There was a few musicians to listen to and some great food to enjoy :)

Cafe koi is an interesting, quaint place that seems to be community-driven. While my gf and I were there, a hip hop show was going on and it was quite entertaining and a nice edition to dinner and drinks. The menu has a lot of healthy options including many vegetarian options. We had the lotus bowl and the miss shanghai... More

Stopped by for a pre-theatre meal and were not disappointed. The menu is varied, Asian-Influenced but international in scope. Reasonably priced, very good staff.

I would have never even found or considered going to Cafe Koi if I hadn't been researching restaurants with vegan options for a friend. So glad that we gave it a try and now I want to bring friends and family here to try it as well! Good cocktails (Kimono was our #1), friendly service and an awesome menu -... More

We celebrated a friend's birthday and we had an amazing server! She knew there was a birthday celebration so she gave a slice of cake for our friend... Complete with a candle! The food was delicious too!

We came here for dinner and live music on a Saturday night. You need to book at this time, which we did. Sadly the music was dreadful but we'd eaten by then so we didn't hang around. But the food was great. We shared veggie gyoza dumplings with citrus soy dip, and yam (actually sweet potato) fries with miso sesame... More

The food was pretty good, Not the best. 3 out of 4 of us ordered dishes with salmon in them, and a few minutes after ordering were told they don't have any salmon... the... More
