The waitress/waiters brought out each dish before i finished the previous one.
We felt rushed and couldnt quite enjoy the dish.
Otherwise very yummy food. Loved every dish, especially the Chawanmushi and both desserts on the tasting menu

I have been looking forward to trying their Just Desserts menu and it did not disappoint. Enjoyed all 5 desserts - my favorites were White Noise and Onyx. Props to the Koi team for taking note that my visit’s for my birthday so they put a candle on the last dessert. Thanks for a great experience. Looking forward to visiting again.

Loved this place the food really is amazing and is a journey.
Drink service was a bit slow with one bar attendee there so we only ordered one cocktail than switch to a bottle of wine.
I did when I booked specified we where on a date but where say next to a party of people who where quite loud so that detracted from the experience but still a great night was pricey with the additional add ons but well worth every cent.
I wish they had more of a white wine variety only one Sav Blanc which was French

Food was amazing. Koi is usually known for their desserts but the savory dishes in their winter tasting menu surprised me as all were really flavorful and yummy. Loved the combination of flavors for the chawanmushi and the squid pasta. That potato foam in the squid pasta, so good! The scallop, urchin chawanmushi in chive oil, so tasty! Great food and overall an amazing dining experience.

Extremely good food , value for money , best tasting plate we have had for a long time.
I can only say that ,the steamed oysters , does not appear to be good value ,as oysters shrink to nearly nothing.
Perhaps you can try steaming pacific oysters as they are much larger and may not shrink as much as Sydney rock oysters

'Just desserts' set menu was 'just wow'. All courses were amazing, with the magic mushroom being our favorite. I highly recommend trying yourself. Dessert will never be the same again... mind blown

Ordered the 5 course dinner and a bottle of wine, plus two cocktails.....

The food combination was weird and the use of sauce was too overruling.... steak was burnt and one of the fish was under cooked.

The 2 cocktails tastes like medicine.

The waiter knows nothing about pouring wine and emptied the entire bottle of wine on first pour into 4 glasses and took the bottle away.

They finish the night with a after meal liquid freshener. The taste was way too strong and I nearly puked.....

We spent about $550 for dinner for 4 ppl and on that price, we can certainly find better food that that. Total disappointment.

I was here with my family for Mother's day and we picked the set tasting menu for 88pp. Everything was incredible! Right through from presentation to the flavour!
The service was a little slow, there seemed to be alot of waiters serving food but not enough waiters to serve the people. We ordered a glass of wine and it didnt arrive till about 10minutes later when we could clearly see people by the bar. But overall, was a great experience and we will be back again, great job and amazing food. I hope you will keep expanding and showing the world your great talent. Cheers!

Beautiful food, we had the dessert tasting menu paired with drinks. What an experience, so many surprise flavours, e.g porcini mushroom ice cream. We loved it and would highly recommend to others. The staff were great, very attentive to guests. This was a birthday surprise for my husband and he loved it! We'd love to come back again!

Eight course tasting menu followed by a six course dessert tasting was pretty on-point. Great service, delicious food and good booze. The detail on the desserts is what you pay for. It was currently an "Alice in Wonderland" theme. Standouts on the desserts were the "Red Queen" & "Down The Rabbit Hole". I would most certainly recommend it for out-of-towners and locals alike.

Lovely place, delicious food. We had the dessert degustation with paired drinks. My only negative was that the service was a bit TOO fast. We were celebrating a fiftieth and wanted to savour the time, but our second dessert was presented within 20 minutes of us arriving and we started to think we’d be out within the hour! I did ask a waitress if we could wait at least to finish our drinks before the next course was served but this wasn’t passed on. Only a minor complaint in such a lovely experience but would have served to make it more luxurious.

Thank you very much for the excellent service and the incredible tasting menu. I am writing this note only to tell you that it is important to take care of the cleanliness in the bathrooms. There were papers on the floor, this gives very bad image for a restaurant in its category.

Wow what an experience. We had the dinner tasting menu and it was amazing. Really interesting dishes such as the pumpkin rendang which has little bursting yogurt balls, the bread with sambal butter was yum, the veg option of enoki mushroom ‘pasta’ was so beautiful and flavourful and my favourite dish. Desserts were so great, interesting and creative flavours such as the binchotan (jasmine tea, charcoal and other all in one yum!). If I had one thing I would change is the fish dish- Bonito can be a bit tough or dry. There are other white firm fish which could work better. Cocktails and wines were delicious. Service was warm, friendly and welcoming. Highly recommend dining here, treat yourself to this special experience!

The service was amazing. All the girls were so helpful and friendly. Before serving us anything they explained how it would work and asked us if we had any allergies or other food related information that might be needed. We had the dessert menu with the wine pairing and every dessert on that menu was just AMAZING. Just thinking about my experience at KOI puts a smile on my face. Would definitely go back and hope to get that chance

Wonderful set menu at an affordable price. If I'm honest, I was surprised how wonderful the savoury dishes were, in my opinion even better than the sweet ones. The balance of flavours was spot on, well presented and service was great. Would definitely come back when winter menu is on.
