With its beautiful decor and great mix of Thai, Chinese and Japanese cuisine; Koi does a great job of capturing all of the senses. It is without a doubt one of the most beautiful businesses in Greenville. New ownership has now added an eloquent sushi menu with the help of the Chefs from Purple International Bistro & Sushi. Weekday happy hour specials include: $1 nigiri on Monday nights, buy one get one half off sushi rolls on Tuesday nights, free desert with the purchase of two dinner entrees on Wednesday nights, and half priced bottles of wine on Thursday nights.

We came in at 7:30 and the restaurant was empty. We were concerned by this but more people came in as it got later. The restaurant is beautifully decorated and quiet. Our food was good, though we will try something different next time. I recommend the fried bananas with ice cream!

We went here for my wife’s 40th birthday. The same person sat us down, bartended, took our order and basically was the only employee we saw the entire time. However, the food was fantastic. Go figure.

Koi is one of our favorite restaurants in greenville and it's hard to find anything about the operation to criticize. However, since we seem to wind up there on Thursdays quite often, we are always told we cannot use our discount coupon AND order a 1/2 price bottle of wine. This seems a little excessively harsh and puts both the customer and the table server in an embarrassing situation. Perhaps this policy could be reviewed?

Would have enjoyed sitting outside beside the Koi pond but due to mosquitos we sat inside. Guess we will wait until September. Service was good. Wait staff very knowledgable.

Consistently excellent in every aspect; we make a point of bringing special visiting friends to Koi as a top experience of the Greenville food scene. Service is always "on point" and I routinely leave a 30%+ tip to acknowledge this important fine dining element (+ surprises and rewards the wait staff for their exceptional effort; they are often undervalued, but are the cornerstone that sets the tone of anticipating a unique dining experience. Equally important your party can actually converse in a very elegant atmosphere reflective of the Asian culture.
Koi is a versatile setting superb for a date, anniversary or other special occasion, but also for a dining experience combining excellent and creative food with a special "spin" rarely found in other venues. The curry selections are excellent and I have not had better Duck Penang outside of Bangkok. Not one item will leave you unsatisfied or disappointed.

Was pleasantly surprised by the food at Koi. Great quality and everything was delicious. There were a few issues with the timing of the food coming out but believe that was related to our waitress and not the kitchen. Waitress seemed new but was very friendly which more than made up for it.

This is a great choice for almost any occasion. My wife and I have eaten here at least five times this year and we have been pleased every time. This establishment is great for adults who want to talk, because it is quiet, by comparison with other restaurants. The servers are excellent, listen well and eager to please. We are very pleased with Koi.

Amazing authentic Asiatic food. We were a party of six who have been living/working/travelling in different Asiatic countries (Thailand, China, Japan, ...) and we order dishes from their differents kind of kitchen (Chinesse, Thai,...). Everything was delicious, full of flavour and made us to feel back in Asia.
Service is great too and decoration and ambiance beautiful and really nice.
It was our second time there, and we will be back much more times.

We realized we had a new waiter so we're patient when the Hot Tea was not hot. Then our entrees were delivered before the soup we ordered and we never received the Tea. How hard is it to boil water? Too many good restaurants in Greenville to get this kind of service.

This was at least our fifth or sixth visit to Koi for dinner during the past six months. Koi is very anxious to please, wants repeat business and has great waitresses. We had a misunderstanding on this visit caused by a Koi employee giving me incorrect information on the telephone, a couple of days earlier. Although my position was incorrect, management realized that it ultimately was one of their employees (innocently, I suspect) who had caused the situation and they did the right thing. I will long remember this and we will be back often.

We ate at Koi for lunch and it was a wonderful experience. The decor is great- painted murals on several walls, a line up of woks and utensils decorate another wall. We were seated by the window which overlooked the koi pond. The fresh roll, sautéed green beans and the sushi rolls were excellent. I would definitely go back if I lived here.
