It's a popular hangout for bankers and brokers working around 24 Central - well deserved so. Service is good, food is well cooked, menu is interesting and the buzz in the place (during workday lunches) is good. The dim sum is great, they used to do a dim sum platter (containing two pieces each of five different ones) that was... More

Came here mid-afternoon on a Saturday. Had the place almost to myself. Only one other table. The food and service were excellent. I just wanted something light, so went for Dim Sum and the seafood soup. Both were excellent. Prices are good if you consider the quality of what you get. I will be back.

Stopped in to Koi for business lunch. The outside seating was great for a meeting over lunch and the menu boasts a wide variety of dishes. Will definitely be back for a business lunch at Koi

I don't get it. Charging ridiculous prices for average food may fool some people into believing it's really great food, but frankly, not.

Tested the ordinary maki and sashimi. Both with tuna. Reasonable amount of tuna and well prepared Seems to be a popular and fancy lunch place

Their menu has become smaller (my favourite dish there was a... More
