    The prices can be a bit much for college students (my girlfriend was sad about how pricey the sushi was) but our sever was great and just really enjoyed the food I got. Probably some of the fastest service I’ve gotten recently

    Terrible service. I am so embarrassed about how we were treated at our dinner on Wednesday. The waiter did not approach us until we were sitting there for 20 minutes, then asked us “what do you want?” No ask about drinks, no welcoming, no apology for the extended wait. Then, we order drinks, dumplings, and edamame which took all took asking a bus boy about after 20 more minutes and then getting them once the main courses were out. This is very unprofessional and for a bill over $100+ I am extremely disappointed and irritated by it. I will not be going back.

    Hadn't been to Ko Fusion for a few months. We always enjoy the experience. Great food and great service! Had some single pieces of fresh sushi, delightful and tasty edamame, and two lovely bowls -- Japanese noodle bowl and a Bi Bim Bob bowl!

    When we got to the restaurant, they claimed that they could not find our reservation. We showed them the confirmation and the confirmation number but they said we were not on their list which was handwritten and not computerized. We were put on a wait list and were seated after about 15 minutes. What is the point of making a reservation if we end up on a wait list. Also, why don’t they use a computer? Obviously, in moving from the computer to their handwritten list, they omitted our reservation. It was a very busy night but they should be able to handle or they should not be in business. This is not the only time that this restaurant has disappointed us. We ordered take-out and they messed up our order. We called and were told that they would give us some money back on a gift card. We told them that we would be back this weekend to use the card and they agreed. Last night, we asked for the gift card and they had no record. This place has good food but management is poor.

    We went for my wife’s birthday. It was move in weekend for U of I so Champaign was PACKED. KoFusion is always good and it was our first time at the new location. We were on the covered patio. It was nice. The local street performers were serenading the neighborhood The dumplings, and cheese curds were excellent. Our sushi was great, however they were out of salmon belly for the Bi Bim Bop (sp?) so my wife had to go with the steel head salmon on vegetables. She had her heart set on salmon of some kind.

    We love the beef stir fry. Very flavorful with extremely high quality ingredients; and the beef is so tender. For dessert, they have the best creme brulee around. Just the right amount of 'crunch' on top (some places overdo it, too thick); and the perfect ratio of cool (not warm) custard.

    We had an absolutely lovely time at Ko Fusion for my daughter’s graduation dinner! Parts of our party arrived a bit late because the graduation ceremony went over, so our ordering was scattered, but our waiter pulled it together and kept the food coming out. The place was packed as expected, but the service was excellent. I wish I had his name so I could thank him again here! Excellent food and service at Ko Fusion; I hope to return if we are in Champaign again!

    Overall good food and good service from out waiter. However, the host did not have our reservation from Open Table and wasn’t too kind about it. Something must’ve been wrong with the system since he didn’t have the reservation for the party in front of us either.
