Nigiri, gyoza, yakitori, miso soup, .. all were good. The yakitori was pretty good. If one goes out in Kensington and enters a nice restaurant, there is definitely a premium to pay. Was it worth the money? That's a personal decision. Will not rush back...More

I just had diner from Koi delivered at home. We were appalled with my wife... we were expecting a nice Japanese (especially when we saw the prices)... we were sooo disappointed! The dishes have no interest whatsoever. This is a plain vanilla Japanese restaurant that...More

I was there with my partner on our birthday. It is a very quiet place, great for having a nice dinner. The quality of the food is great and the selection as well. Good service!

South Kensington
With its ivied mews, row upon row of Poppins-esque
white washed mansions, and placid garden squares, it's
easy to see the charms of South Kensington. And with
superb access to Hyde Park, Holland Park and
Kensington Gardens, as well as the largely
child-friendly and mostly free Museum Quarter (not to
mention more major attractions like Royal Albert Hall)
such charms are easy to make the most of. As welcoming
