Food was beautifully presented and flavours were amazing. We took our two kids along and they shared a butter chicken and naan. An amazing range of various whisky's on the menu if you are a whiskey lover! Lovely decor inside and we will definitely be trying this restaurant again.

Absolutely loved the atmosphere and the decor of this restaurant. Our server was very attentive and friendly. Food was all very good especially that fresh naan bread and the masala chicken. Would definitely recommend this place. Menu has a good variety too so great to get a few plates and share with friends.

We really enjoyed our meal at Koi, food was very good and so was the service. Just a note, if dining here with first table, some of the menu items are not included but still a good variety to choose from. Chicken and beef were so tender and great tasting.

Return visit as always a wonderful dining experience. Once again I ordered the Chicken Biriyani and once again very reluctant to share as this is by far the best Biriyani I have ever eaten and I order it often as it is my favourite dish. But share it I did as it meant I got to share the other dishes as well and you can't be too selfish!! The lamb saag and the roast chicken curry were so delicious that they were well worth sacrificing a few spoonfuls of my own precious dish! We'll be back and definitely recommending others visit too. Thanks Kio for the excellent service too.

AMAZING as always! The food is sublime and a huge step above your usual run of the mill Indian restaurants. Flavours are delicious, presentation creative and beautiful and the service is warm. Thank you Koi, we love coming to see you and are glad we get the opportunity to do that via First Table. :-)

I came to Koi with high expectations and was fairly disappointed. The curries were extremely sweet and lacking spice or flavour, while the Malaysian food was very bland. Neither was authentic to either region. The two highlights were the cheese naan and the roti pratha which were tasty and authentic. Service was OK, but we were interrupted every 5 minutes to see if we were OK which got annoying.

Great food. Nice peaceful setting. I dnt normally eat out as I feel uncomfortably. But not at Koi. Always great service and they dnt mind the lil 1s. Even talk to nd poke fun at them. Deffinately recommend if u just wana chill nd eat good food. Great selection at the bar too to wash down your food with.

If I could give a higher mark than 5 for the service, I definitely would. The gentleman that served us was such a lovely man. AAAA+++ and the food was beautifully presented and tasted divine, the only problem was there were too many tempting items to choose from, Lol so will have to go back to try the rest. Yum Yum

My husband and I had a great evening at Koi with our two sons. They had the butter chicken which they really enjoyed and our mains were delicious too - I had chicken Korma and my husband had a Lamb dish which was beautifully tender. We had starters of chicken satay, clay chicken and papadums - also delicious.The waiter was very friendly and helpful with good knowledge of the dishes. Lovely atmosphere and decor - we will be back:-) Thanks for a lovely evening Koi.

The most delicious butter chicken and cheese n garlic naan I’ve ever had!
Naan was light and fluffy and had plenty of delicious cheese and garlic! A pleasant change from the heavy stodgy naan served at other restaurants. I never would have known the butter chicken was dairy free! Was perfect. Service was top knotch too :)

By any measure an excellent restaurant. The atmosphere was relaxed but inviting. The food was delicious and portions were more than sufficient, representing excellent value even if dining at full rate, the drinks list was extensive and high quality (the Lassi is mindblowing!) The service was courteous and attentive facilities were clean and immaculately presented. All in all an excellent choice for a meal out in New Plymouth and very hard to fault. 10/10 will book again and recommend to friends.
