Busy little spot. Not much to the decor. Food is very good with some bold and tasty flavours. Nice tea selection. Friendly staff and good service. Reasonably priced for quality. Definitely would go back to try more items on menu.

I met a business colleague for a casual dinner. Cafe Koi was perfect. Amazing dishes that were vegetarian and seafood based. Friendly and fun service. Impromptu musicians and music rounded out the evening. I will go again.

Great food, atmosphere, and service! I had the veggie Buddha bowl which was a good size portion and it was so good.

Staff was so friendly and helpful. Music was nice and not too loud (Tuesday is open mic night). And the food was soooo good. I got the Dr Phangs and could have just kept eating if the bowl refilled itself. We did takeout the second...More
