Had a great time on our first date. She loves the place and food. Price of amazingly reasonable. The dessert was fantastic too. Will come back again.
Phenomenal sushi! Moved here from
The city and this is my favorite place!!!
I just can't recommend this restaurant anymore. Our waitress messed up our drink order (only two of us) and then we had to wait over an hour for our meals. Unbelievable. She wasn't even going to say anything except I looked MAD. She gave us some lame excuse about the kitchen focusing on delivery customers while people in the restaurant dining there didn't seem to matter. Even our busboy was concerned about our long wait. I wish I had given him the tip instead of the waitress. The waitress did end up giving us a 25% discount but she still didn't seem to care. As we left, I complained to the hostess but she didn't seem to care. Anyhow, we're done with Koi. There are MANY more Asian food options in Evanston and Chicago.
WE had planned a quick lunch but did not finish for 2 hours. That is an inordinate amount of time for a quick little lunch. The soup that was served steaming but only luke warm to the taste and there was only ONE wonton in a huge bowl of soup.
I had been to a networking event at Koi before and thought the appetizers I had there were pretty good. My girlfriend and I decided to go for Valentine's and it was exceptional. The food was delicious and our waiter was great. He had excellent recommendations and was also just very pleasant all around. He recommended coming back on the weekend for their dim sum, which I think we will do soon!
Koi is one of the best Asian cuisine restaurants in Evanston. Service is great. Lots of good choices. Only disappointment is that they do no have egg rolls, only spring rolls which are not the same.
Food was delicious and love how the plates are broken out by the region in China. Service was quick and gave great suggestions. We will be back!
The staff was very lovely and the restaurant had a nice ambience. It was still busy by the time I got to it at 7:30pm. I felt so bad because my friend had an accident wasn't able to get there until almost 8:05, but the waitress was still super patient with us. I ordered one of their specialty sushis (the Lotus Bomb I believe) and it was absolutely delicious. I then followed it up with their cheesecake and enjoyed that as well. Overall, it was a good experience and I would recommend it for a nice date.
It was really relaxing and they took care of everything for our private event
