Food at Koi was really delicious and very flavourful. Service was great. One of our favourite places to dine in New Plymouth for sure.

We had raved about Koi to our Garden Festival visitor and it did not fail to live up to our recommendation. The atmosphere was lovely as we sat in the front area with the bi-fold windows open to the gorgeous early evening sunshine and buzz of the street. The food, from the dumpling starters to the best biriyani with accommpanying curries, was absolutely delicious. Our guest was so impressed and, along with us, scraped the dishes clean. Thank you so much Koi. Such friendly and expert service. J & J

There are a few meals not available on First Table however there's plenty of choice, so not a problem what-so-ever. Great to have an early seating option, especially if you want to catch up with others before the busy meal time really sets in.
Comfortable and enjoyable restaurant to dine in. First time at Koi - won't be our last.

Lovely welcoming by the owner who made us feel at home straight away. He talked to my Dad about the whiskeys etc that they sell, which he loved. The food was delicious. We were there for First Table, but we were not made to feel like we have to rush once we had eaten. Thank you for an enjoyable evening.

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.

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.

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 third time we have been here & as always we could not fault the food & service, its a cut above the rest! Thank you for a lovely evening. :-)

- dined at Koi - Spice Craft & Whisky on

Wonderful from start to finish, we cannot speak highly enough about the service and food!
Friendly warm service & even a guided tour around the beautiful interior of the restaurant, stunning.
The food was incredible and the best Indian food we have eaten in a very long time, the flavours were sublime.
Thank you for a delightful evening, we loved it. :-)

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.
