Not my first visit. As always good was great and so was service. Once again I had the beef fried noodles and I previously had a beef with ginger and some other things and the salmon teppan. Others in my party had sushi which looked great and tasted great according to them.

It is a small place, good for an informal meal with friends or family. Fish was very fresh, sushis were delicious, well presented. Service was very good.

We frequently eat at koi where the food is excellent and the staff is very friendly. Prices are ok too. It is ok if you do not eat raw. They have excellent cooked options too.

Good food, well done, you can change anything, and the service is extremely kindness. A great place to take the family. A little noise but hey, that's a family restaurant. Pretty honest Japanese restaurant. It's been around for a decade (and I often visit it with my family). I do recommend.

Love the fact that this place is very cozy, and has been recently renovated. Not super fancy nor exotic ... but the fish is fresh and the service is great. For a very good price.

Fresh products, good presentation, they are very careful with all things related to dishes however the staff is completely lost, they have to work on staff training urgently.

I came there and ordered 4 temakis to go. They simply passed everybody in front of me and took 1 whole HOUR to hand me the food. Everybody that arrived after me got served first. The staff simply said sorry we are working on your order many times, but they were lying the whole time. Go there only if you... More

I have eatne here twice, as with most places that serve sushi in SP they offer a la carte or an all you can eat option. Service is always quick and friendly, although they have not had a menu in English on both occasions I have visited, however I was with a local so no worry. The place is not... More

The great thing about Koi is their Menu. Koi's first sushimen Luizinho was really creative and innovative. Wen you go there go for "all you can it" and try everything on their menu. Two of my favorites are Luizinho Roll - rice with salmon outside instead of seaweed, and chopped salmon with chives above, the secons is called Acelgamaki it... More

small restaurant and often very full so I suggest You to go there early.. but it's worthy to wait in order to taste the best Temaki oversized I ever tasted. Now they even introduced a "rodizio" system so You can choose the service "a la carte" or this alternative if you are really hungry. You pay a fixed price and... More
