    I love Clever Koi and it didn't disappoint. My only mistake was not ordering the XO noodles MILD (my fault).

    Food wasn’t bad, but it wasn’t good either. Pad Thai was definitely mediocre, the beef dish my son got had such a weird flavor and texture he didn’t even eat a quarter of it. My dad got the noodle dish and it was just OK. The buns were good and service was decent so that’s why it gets 2 stars.

    We came to Clever Koi on a Wednesday With your dinner for 2/60$. We ended Up with a significant larger check to our Surprise. It was disappointing but your restaurant is amazing. I would have appreciated more transparency. I asked twice as to what comprises the dinner for 2 On Wednesday. It seems our explanation lacking

    I thought the food was just ok. I didn’t hate it or love it. My buddy didn’t love his either. We didn’t get the recommendation of ramen… so maybe we just didn’t get the right thing. Service was awesome - and the atmosphere was great. Will give it another try and order the ramen.

    Was there for two hours, missed a topgolf reservation because the food and drinks took so long to come out. Server forgot our appetizer, had to find him and ask for the bill so that we could finally leave. Not a great experience.

    The food was good but we both felt our dishes were a bit salty. Our first time there was perfect. This time we mentioned the saltiness and we’re told Asian food tends to have more salt. However, our first experience did not seem to have that issue. We’ll be back but might mention the salt level when we order. Love the creativity of the menu. It’s fun trying new items on the menu.

    My wife and I first learned of the Clever Koi by watching Check Please Arizona on PBS. As a result, we dined there two weeks ago and enjoyed it so much we returned the following week and to our surprise our dining experience was even better the second time around! We started with the dumplings which were very good but the steamed buns from the week before were better so we ordered two of those. Then I ordered the pork ramen for an entree and it was excellent. Finally, we topped the dinner off with a banana fritter and I would return just for that!!!!

    After watching Check Please Arizona, my wife and I thought the Clever Koi sounded interesting and a place we would like to dine. As a result, we made a reservation for outside dining and we were not disappointed. The service was very good, the good was excellent and we are returning tonight because we want to sample some of the other items on the menu! Also, we frequently have guests from out of state and we are always looking for new restaurants to take them to and we will definitely take them to the Clever Koi in the future.

    We were on vacation looking for a restaurant that serves bao buns. We ended stopping at the Gilbert location. The spicy, Korean chicken and kimchi cauliflower buns were excellent. We also ordered fried rice and noodles. Both very good! Restaurant is modern and very cute!
