I live in the area and for some reason had not visited KOA for several years. On a friends recommendation ,we visited here and we were blown away by the quality of the food and service .We thought it was a one off and we...have returned several times since ,only to be continually impressed by the standard of the food accompanied by very friendly service.More

Got takeaway recently here for the first time.. it was a little disappointing I’m sorry to say.. firstly I think they gave me the wrong order. I ordered crispy shredded chicken in basil and oyster sauce. The chicken was not crispy.. there was no sauce...as it had all congealed around the chicken. And I think it was the chilli and basil stir fry not oyster sauce & basil, it was not a saucy dish.. the chips tasted like reheats.. very disappointing over all.More

The food here is beyond amazing. I have had family from Cork here tonight and they said it was the best food they have ever eaten. I would absolutely agree. Amazing food, amazing staff and an amazing atmosphere even in these times, thank you KOA...😍More

Best “Crispy Shredded Chicken Salt + Chilli” ever. The chicken is perfection. I’ve come across Asian restaurants where this dish has been “chewy”, but not in Koa. I’m also a big fan of their “Malaysian Curry Sauce” (No MSG). My family aren’t big into Asian...food (I, however, have an unhealthy addiction!) but my parents rave about their “Aromatic Duck with Pancakes” and according to my dad, they do the best “Spring Rolls”! The staff are always so friendly, too. Pleasure giving Koa business. Please don’t ever leave Malahide!More

Recommended to KOA from friends but never even got to taste the food! Placed an order via Just Eat and was almost abused for doing so instead of using their website directly. The issue - KOA couldn't charge me €5 for delivering an order 7km...and insisted I pay the remaining €2.50 charge in cash. Normally, I wouldn't have an issue with this but trying to explain that you've no cash on hand and 3 young kids ready for their beds is a little inconvenient to say the least. The response from the manager - "Just Eat have caused all these problems and if you don't like it, cancel the order" Pretty ridiculous reaction to a fairly small issue. Personally, I don't care how good the food is if this is how they treat their customers and slag off a service they pay to use. Judging from some of the less favourable reviews on here and the reaction from the management team, it seems that attracting and retaining new customers is a low priority. Luckily, there are loads of options available at better prices in the local area.More

The food is beyond amazing in Koa. The effort they have gone to with Covid restrictions is fantastic. Everything is spotlessly clean and sanitized. The food is spectacular, the staff are unbelievably friendly, professional and helpful. This is by far the best restaurant not only...in Malahide but in Dublin. It's my whole families absolute favourite. Thank you Koa 👍👍More
