Diner Reviews
  • "All the dishes were wonderful and the presentation beautiful."
    Dined on 8/5/2014
  • "The decor of the restaurant was attractive and comfortable. The waiter was attentative and friendly. Two in our party of three ordered the sushi rolls for appetizers but agreed that they were overengineered, that is they were colorful and attractive but not so tasty. I ordered the Thai basil beef for an entree and found it to be tasty but not outstanding. One person ordered the lam chops medium rare but was disappointed that they arrived medium to well done. The Emerald scallops entree also was good but not outstanding. We thought that it was a bit pricey given that the tastiness of the food fell short."

  • "We love Emperial Koi and drive from Madison, NC (30 miles) to eat there often. The food presentation is outstanding! The view and the quiet atmosphere make it a welcome retreat. I would highly recommend. This visit July 4th, we did encounter (for the first and only time) some delay in food service; however, the wait staff explained that they had not anticipated the number of people present for lunch and they were a little understaffed. When we were ready to pay, all the credit card machines/computers were not working and they could only take a check/cash or write down the credit card information. We were happy to pay by check but I was glad I had my checkbook with me."

  • "GREAT lunch bento boxes for justv $10. The food quality is always great at Imperial Koi. There bento lunch boxes are excellent. They come with soup or salad. There are a number of choices including tempura and teriyaki. The staff are lovely. This is a great spot for lunch."

  • "My husband and I went to Imperial Koi for dinner at 8pm on a Saturday and the place was only about half full. It took 10 minutes for someone to take our drink order. The spring roll app was good but then my husbands meal came out and my sushi rolls were nowhere to be seen (two basic veggie sushi rolls). I figured my food would be a minute or two behind so I wasn't that concerned, but I ended up not getting the sushi until my husband was half way through his dinner. They also didn't being out soy sauce with my sushi - my husband had to get up and ask for some. The waiter never asked how our food was through the whole meal. This place is higher priced and we were disappointed to pay so much for a lackluster meal. We won't be going back."

  • "As always Koi delivers. Their specialty rolls are amazing. I recommend all go there and try, you won't be disappointed. Service is friendly and accommodating. My favorite sushi restaurant."

  • "Our waitress seemed very busy so I don't think it was her fault. However, we sat at the table for 10 minutes before getting service. We ordered three of the special drinks (koi martinis?) and edamame and got the drinks 10 minutes later and the app 15 minutes later. So by the 25 minute point we finally had apps and drinks. Everything tasted great but we probably would've spent a lot more money if our server had the time to offer us more drinks and sushi."
    Dined on 6/6/2014
  • "Very surprised at how disappointing our recent dinner was. Cocktails were small, weak, and far too sweet. Asked for temaki (hand roll) spicy tuna but were given regular maki roll. Service was rushed. Edamame was cleared from the table before we had finished it. Sashimi slices were less than half the size they used to be. Nigiri sushi was also minuscule. Dragon roll was soggy with mayonnaise. What was supposed to be a relaxed dinner was just pushed way too fast. We were given our check 35 minutes after we arrived. The restaurant wasn't even half full - it wasn't like they needed our table right away. Bill was $122, excluding tip. We did not feel we got nearly that value from the meal. Not sure we'll be going back. A shame-we used to love it."

  • "Koi NEVER disappoints. All food was excellent, my Appletini was perfect with these amazing perfect little ice bits in it. This is an outstanding restaurant and our waitress Jessica is simply the best. She is attentive and very friendly and efficient. It is possibly the best restaurant in Greensboro NC and it is the first place I go whenever I come to NC. We love KOI..."

  • "Came to Koi on a friend's recommendation for a nice sushi restaurant to bring a date and it delivered. The menu offering was substantial including multiple choices in sushi, sashimi, rolls as well as hibachi style dishes if you desire. The restaurant was versatile enough to handle both a romantic dinner and a larger group as I saw both dining that night. The service was very good and the food presentation equally impressive. Will definitely be back. "

  • "Went there for dinner on a Saturday with a group of 10. Even though we were a large party we still received excellent service and the food was excellent. The sushi was very artistically presented and quite delicious. We were very pleased with the duck spring rolls, sashimi sampler and the dim sum sampler. "

  • "I found Imperial Koi when visiting my daughter in Greensboro. She loved the outside patio, string lights in the evening, and the relaxing vibe. She loved it so much as a 20 something, she insisted we go back with her finance' a few night later. The staff is attentive and polite, service and food is a thumbs up. Prices are very reasonable. I had the Basil Chicken, very yummy. My daughter is Veggie only girl and had the veggie roll and veggie springs rolls, she was very happy with both. Will go again next time I am in town."

  • "Food was great ... service was excellent ... sat next to a window and the second level view makes you feel like you are a hundred miles from home ..."

  • "Great sushi...definitely with a twist. I recommend the Sunshine Roll! The service was so so, but it was a holiday so I will give them a pass on that b/c of how busy they were."

  • "Decor was excellent but I wanted to see fish. The food was fine but a bit over priced for the quality and portion. My appetizers came out after the main course. Overall it was ok."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "Overall restaurant was good. I went there on valentines day and had to wait longer to get my table even though I had a reservation. They were not properly prepared for the event. A lots of customers who made reservations had to wait longer. They should have had enough server/cook to serve for customers. In this way, food could have been served fast and customers would have been seated fast."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "It took an hour for one person in our party to get his food. Everyone else had finished by the time his arrived and we ate slowly. The management didn't seem too phased by our displeasure. They only yolk 10% off the bill. There are too many other good choices of restaurants in the area to have to put up with this. We have been loyal customers , but we won't eat here again."

  • "My husband and I went for the 1st time New Year Eve. We had a great waitress and very Friday hostess greet us at the door. We even had eiher the owner or manager come to our table and check on us. He was so super friendly as well. The food was delicious. We started with a complementary glass of champagne and edemame. Then we ordered calamari which was great. Nice and crispy how we like it. For our entrees I had they smoking shrimp roll which was delicious and served on fire which was pretty cool and my husband had one of the scallop dished which was also very good. Over all it's a little expensive but worth the money. A good place for a special occasion. We will be going back."

  • "We enjoyed our first visit to Imperial Koi and hope to return soon. The staff was friendly and knowledgeable, patient with first-timers unfamiliar with the menu. The atmosphere was quiet and relaxing on the night we visited, a perfect ending to a hectic day. The food was excellent, wonderful flavors. The calamari appetizers was fresh and flavorful, prepared in meaty strips, not the usual rings. The Pink Lady Roll was very light and fresh, a wonderful mingling of flavors."

  • "Sometimes you want an oriental restaurant that is a bit more formal and well appointed than the run-of-the-mill venue. Imperial Koi satisfies this need well. The ambiance and decor are on the formal side, nice linen and notable plates. The food is Japanese with accents from other oriental cuisines. The food is very good but not in itself worth a special trip. It is expensive for this kind of restaurant so be prepared."

  • "Well, this was such a great surprise. Being from Los Angeles, I have a pretty high standard for sushi. I never would have expected to find outstanding sushi in Greensboro NC! Fresh, melt in your mouth quality, great presentation, friendly helpful service, and priced well. They had it all. Definitely returning for a second round during my High Point market stay. My friend and I had the sashimi sampler and the pepper seared tuna. Yum"

Jessica always serves us and is the absolute best at what she does. She is also extremely friendly and particular about how the entire evening from start to finish progresses. She is an extremely valued addition to this fine establishment. Have always come here and have always left totally happy and satisfied. Thank you to everyone here, especially Jessica for making our celebration even more special that we could have imagined. See you next time!"
