On the hottest day of the summer I went to Koi for lunch. When I sat down, the waiter rushed forward with water, ice and lemon- a splendid idea. There was a cool breeze blowing and it was very refreshing outside. I ordered duck with pancakes. It was very enjoyable. I felt like having a few small plates, but decided... More

Really dissapionted. As someone that doess not enjoy sushi this place offered little which i can not get at any other restaurant. The selection of "asian" dishes is extremely limited and items like linefish and lambshank more prominent. Do not go expecting an asian restuarant. Sushi bar with few other dishes then just comercial dishes like lamb shank is more... More

Probably one of the most beautiful restaurants you'll ever see and the staff is fantastic, but that is where it ends. The menu hasn't changed in 3 years, the dishes are bland and not Asian at all, the dumplings are great though. Extremely pricy for what you get ! Won't return

The restaurant is a bit expensive, but the tempura dishes are to die for. The wine list is good but seriously pricy. So if you like wine with your meal, be prepared to pay a lot more for dinner than you expected.

I was staying in Pretoria for 3 months and went at least once a week. I really loved it. I went for lunch or drinks or dinner. It has great dishes and loved the banana dessert

We've dined at this restaurant three times over a couple of months and we're delighted every time. Besides being a lovely appointed restaurant with well trained and presented staff, the food is out of this world. Dim sum is fantastic, as is the calamari starter. Fresh seafood (tuna, salmon or line fish) with the most amazing flavors, the most delicious... More

I usually come to this restaurant when I'm in Pretoria, mainly for their Sushi and Dim Sum. They are pricing but the food is great. Nice selection of wine as well.

What I love about the restaurant is that I can truly enjoy dim sum,seafood & sushi which always tastes good. When I go to Koi I expect to have at least one I our party to have the Pecking Duck. Although not to the standard of the Chinese cities it is nevertheless an experience for someone who likes to have... More
