Koji's is very much a "work lunch to go" kind of place. It's hot and crowded on the inside (standing room for a few people), but you can see that they cook fresh meat for each order.

You get a lot for the price :) Their Koji Loco and Koji Burger are the best. I also like their hamburger curry on cold days. Be prepared for a kanak attack!

i had the koji loco moco which was great and big it ended up being plenty of food for me. it seemed to have a steady flow of customers throughout the day so it has a good following with the locals. Only a grab and go place.
