Koi Dessert Bar
A great meal, with excellent service and a wonderful ambiance. The courses were brought out quickly and were explained well by each member of staff. A lovely dining experience!
The high tea was excellent, delicious and beautifully displayed. However, the experience was marred by the fact that we were asked to move from our table half way through our high tea so that they could accomodate a larger group.
Food was exceptional! Service was impeccable. Hubby and I are excited to go there again.
Overpriced and mediocre experience. We were seated in a nice area with a decent view but the service was unsatisfactory for a $65 experience.... We were seated and given the menu to choose our drinks but no one came to our table for a solid 20 minutes to ask us for our drinks.. nor were we told when the food was arriving. We ordered 2 teas and only received one... so 40 minutes in we had to flag down another person and re-order our teas...
It took 50 minutes for us to get our food and the time slot was only for 1.5 hours... I get that the food comes in tiny portions but we didn't really even get time to enjoy it and eat it slowly before being asked to leave.
Food was ok - cakes were tiny (literally one bite) and were pretty and interesting textures/flavours but not really that special.
Would not recommend.. we were quite disappointed by the experience.
Everything was beautifully set up snd thr ambience was great. The dishes were set up carefully and it was obvious the bright menu has been very well thought up and revolved around the spring theme.
The savoury treats were great and varied from one another. It was nice to not expect finger sandwiches and be served chicken tars, bread sticks and warm croissants instead.
My favourite dessert was by far the one with the berry compote as it was tart and refreshing from all the other sweet dishes. The desserts were just the right amount of sweetness and this is why I favour KOI desserts.
A small suggestion is to include texture in all the desserts. The apple inspired dessert was primarily soft and filled with mousse- perhaps include a nut or element of pop for surprise?
Great high tea experience and would definitely return next year. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Well done Team KOI! You have definitely lifted Sydney's dessert game since entering the field.
Couldn’t ask for a better high tea experience. Everything was outstanding.
All in all a great dining experience, and this has been the case for quite some time.
The service is great but the only comment I would make is to ensure staff are able to properly explain what the dishes are and what are the different ingredients in those. At times it is difficult to understand what they say or how those are pronounced and given there are very special dishes and ingredients there, it would be fantastic to be able to understand fully what those are.
Ordered the just dessert menu. Love all 5 desserts especially the choc.
Thank you for an exquisite experience, loved the food and excellent service.
Just when you think too much, sugar; decoration; style over substance you are amazed at a balance of flavour, texture, scent that is beyond normal. As a special occasion the high tea was both special and has that heightened sense of occasion. You certainly couldn’t do this regularly!
Service was great! Just had to wait a little longer than usual and a waitress forgot about my tea so I had to follow that up. Overall, everything else was great! Well done to the team!
Very good selection of cakes (especially the yellow almond one, soo good). I'd love it more if there were more selection for drinks (e.g matcha latte or rose latte). Overall, the design is very nice. Staffs were professional and friendly. A little noisy but not to the point where it's very disturbing (probably because it's weekend). I would recommend my friends to give this a try.
The staff were very attentive such as making sure our glasses were full and were a pleasure to deal with. The desserts were varied and displayed very interesting and combinations, however some unexpected blemishes like air bubbles in the glaze and hollow macaron shell slightly ruined the experience. Overall good food and service but lacking in the details.
Our 2nd time at Koi and it didn't disappoint ! Food was exquisite and the plating is an absolute pleasure for the eye. Would also definitely recommend the big nitro dessert to complete the dinner!
I booked here to celebrate my partner's birthday, and it such a wonderful memorable experience.
We had the "Just Desserts" Menu - a 5-course dessert, with each one carefully sculpted to reflect the current theme. This season's theme was "Galaxy", and it was breathtaking. Both my partner and I enjoyed the surprising tastes, as well as trying to pin point the story behind each dessert. The staff were great, and each dessert came out in reasonable time intervals; which allowed us to eat at our own leisure, whilst conversing, relaxing and savouring the tastes of the stars.
Customer service was amazing - when booking, I had put in a comment that it was for a birthday. Even though I did not ask for any special requests, the staff were very thoughtful and added a little surprise to our last dessert. They wrote out "Happy Birthday" in white chocolate on the plate, and placed a lit candle next to it, along with the final dessert. I would like to applaud this customer service, as it made the experience so much more valuable, memorable and personalised.
Thank you so much!
Incredible service and incredible food. Can’t wait for the next dessert chapter to come out!
Wife and I booked in for the Just Desserts menu, we decided to do the pairing of drinks with the desserts and so glad we did. Personally I'm not a wine/ champagne drinker, but what was paired with the dishes was fantastic, along with great cocktails. Great night, highly recommended.
Desserts were well balanced and not to sweet. I am not a huge fan of ice cream in winter time and two of the desserts were based on ice cream. It was quite difficult to eat few of disserts. One of them was just too hard to cut with spoon. The first one was a kind of jelly in a strow. Unfortunately, all the jelly dropped to my hands because I didn't know that I have to eat very quickly or maybe how to hold it. Waitress told that they will bring me a new one but they didn't. I few a bit disappointed after paying 65 AUD.
Awesome place, great experience. A must for anyone.
Gorgeous looking deserts and very tasty. Modern looking restaurant. We were there on a Tuesday night so it was very quiet.
warmth Welcome service there, every dish is creative and delicious, very recommend for a romantic dining
The food is tasty and amazing. Staffs are nice and given details of the information.
We had the tasting menu with both savoury and sweet dishes! Everything was absolutely perfect! Service was fantastic with happy & friendly staff!
Wonderful service. Very appetising and appealing desserts.
The tasting menu is cleverly thought out and absolutely delicious. The desserts are obviously the highlight with the unknown being the surprise group favourite and could be the best dessert I have ever had. The food came out in perfect timing and the wait staff were friendly and helpful and suggested a beautiful bottle of wine which was amazing. The overall experience was one to remember
We had the five course degustation menu. The food and theatricality was absolute amazing.
Staff very pushy with upsell even though I already purchased a set menu.
All courses were really well balanced and delicious. Staff were also lovely.
Artistic dining at its best - visually superb and supported with mouth watering taste sensations! I am gluten free and they adjusted my dishes to help me just beautifully!
Highly recommend it to those with a sweet tooth especially
I recommend it to all my family and friends ! They will be there soon :)
We love this place. Each and every time we have been there it has been outstanding. It is so outstanding this is where we chose to have our dinner on the night of our wedding.
Koi is hands down my favourite dessert place. The food was absolutely delicious. Add to that the perfect service and ambience.
Brilliant restaurant and the food was fantastic. Loved everything about KOI.
Excellent desserts, we did not try the dinner menu.
A delicious luxe experience-definitely worth experiencing. Thank you so much
Only one (white noise) the 5 desserts was the highlight.
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
Exceptional. Every dish was so well though out. We loved all the textures & elements. They all went well together. The wagyu steak! Oh my & the dessert with the coconut water jelly sheet. You guys are unreal. Have told family & friends. They all want to try & we’re SO coming back! Great stuff Poernomo Brothers 👌🏼👌🏼👌🏼 @aliceor007
Great food, service and atmosphere :) Good food for its value
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.
