Koi has great Japanese food, but what really makes Koi special is the atmosphere of the restaurant. It’s very LA and “sceney”, but also very romantic and beautiful, it’s Asian decorated and dim-lit with candles. Great upscale sushi restaurant in LA. For other Koi locations check out the website.
Dinner & Drinks at KOI w/ friends. Our servers jumped into the picture too 🙂
Can’t go wrong w/ dinner and drinks with friends at LA hotspot, Koi. This upscale, chic & trendy, asian-influenced restaurant has a beautiful atmosphere and great Japanese cuisine. I went with a group of friends and we all ordered small dishes, and lots of champagne lol. Koi is great for a romantic date night, dinner with friends, business meetings or any special occasion.
KOI CRISPY RICE
Spicy tuna on crispy rice w/ sliced jalapeno on top. One of my favorite dishes to order at sushi. You can’t get this dish wrong! Amazing.
FRESH OYSTERS ON THE HALF SHELL
If you like oysters, these were great. Not too big, (the big ones freak me out), they were smaller and with hot sauce and lemon they are very fresh and good quality oysters.
SALMON CARPACCIO W/ BLACK TRUFFLES, CITRUS SAUCE
Loved this dish! I love anything with black truffle, and I’ve never had salmon carpaccio before so this was something different for me. Very fresh tasting, and the black truffle with the citrus sauce was a great mix of flavors. Definitely would recommend this dish!
WILD YOUNG YELLOWTAIL CARPACCIO W/ DICED CHILIS, WHITE PONZU REDUCTION
Loved this! Another great dish. I love fresh, good quality, raw fish. Especially in a light ponzu sauce. I crave this a lot when I go to sushi! Love fresh fish. Jalapenos add a nice kick too.
CREAMY ROCK SHRIMP
This is one of my other favorite dishes, besides Spicy Tuna on Crispy Rice, to get at a Japanese/sushi restaurant. Some places make it better than others, Koi makes a great one! It’s basically popcorn shrimp tempura in a creamy semi-spicy sauce, and a ponzu sauce to dip. Love it!
FRESHWATER EEL (one is eaten already lol), YELLOWTAIL, & TUNA SUSHI
ROK N ROLL- SOFT SHELL CRAB, SPICY TUNA, BAKED CRAB TOPPED W/ TORO
Half eaten already, I apologize lol, but another great special roll off the menu.
