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.

Tested the ordinary maki and sashimi. Both with tuna. Reasonable amount of tuna and well prepared Seems to be a popular and fancy lunch place

Koi's food has always been wonderful, and we're always happy to return, But on this visit we were very disappointed and will not be returning(which is very sad). Their menu has become smaller (my favourite dish there was a... More

I loved the flaming Maki, I was on business and ate here 4-5 times. Filling but not too much, perfect pricing. It was where I had my last meal

I love eating at Koi, the sushi is great, the shimizu amazing. The meals are relatively expensive. I spoil myself and my wife visiting Koi. Service is always of a high standard.

Koi is one of the foolproof restaurants in Sandton. The food will invariably be good. The location is great. The menu options are solid and the wine list is good. You can visit for a work lunch, or as a group of friends. But I've found that the levels of service varies. When we visited on a Friday at lunch... More

Visited Koi on a balmy evening so could sit at a lovely indoor/outdoor table. The food was absolutely delicious and it was difficult to choose given the fantastic options of starters and mains available. The Wagyu sliders, prawn tacos and chicken and ginger dim sum were favourites as starters for the table. The crispy duck salad was also delicious. The... More
