Our first experience through First table at the Koi did not disappoint. We arrived 15 minutes early, despite this we were still seated and given time to relax before ordering a pre-dinner drink.

We both chose from the specialty menu a Scottish whiskey and an Indian gin, which were superb and set the scene for our evening.

We chose entrees of mixed pappadums and chicken trio with dips washed down with a Marlborough bottle of Sauvignon which complimented our dinner beautifully.

For mains we enjoyed medium spiced Lamb shank cooked to perfection, and dipped our cheese and garlic naan into the sauce with its plump mushrooms and cauliflower. The Butter chicken with its creamy sweet sauce and accompanying rice was the best my husband has ever eaten, "his words". Unfortunately we left no room for dessert on this occasion but it was tempting.

The gorgeous authentic decor at the Koi really does set an exotic scene. Arriving early meant we got to enjoy our surroundings with minimal other guests present which we really appreciated.

The service at the Koi was exceptional with just the right amount of timing between courses, genuinely warm, without being imposing. Although we were invited to sit back and relax if we wanted to make space for dessert, we chose not to on this occasion.

Thank you Koi we highly recommend eating at this venue and will be back in the very near future.

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

The flavours at Koi are yummy. However, entree size is tiny! Was a bit worried about the mains but there is definitely enough for one main per person. Next time I’ll skip the entree and stick with the main. My favourite was the beef rendang and the biryani. Yum!!

Had a good meal here, it is not the most extensive menu for choice. What we had, starter and mains, was well presented and very tasty, service was excellent, which you would expect for the early time. Will be back to try some of the other delicious sounding fare, thank you.

Such a beautiful atmosphere and wonderful prompt service. The food was delicious and very tasty. Our children enjoyed the lamb shanks which was not too spicy for them. I enjoyed the masala chicken very flavourful with good sized chicken and amount and my husband enjoyed the chicken Byriani in the clay pot which gave a tasty unique flavour. Amazing experience would definitely recommend.

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.

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.
