As Kensington's longest-standing Japanese restaurant since 1997, Koi has long been the local residents' firm favourite Japanese and the capital's hidden gem, offering an exquisite modern Japanese menu full of innovative creations as well as the most popular classic dishes, in smart, serene surroundings exuding understated chic and Zen-garden ambience.

Conveniently located opposite the Kensington Gardens and only a few minutes' walk away from the Royal Albert Hall, Koi also offers a delicious, excellent-value pre-theatre menu for theatre-goers and early-bird diners.

Split across 3 floors with a spacious private dining space, Koi is the destination restaurant for anyone who enjoys fine Japanese cuisine with creativity.

    Food was excellent. Among the best sushi I've had. We also shared one noodle dish that was delicious. Nice, relaxed dinner all around. A bit pricey for just a family dinner out, but well worth it.

    I was looking for a pre theatre meal and a nice restaurant to celebrate my husbands birthday. Ambience and authenticity was superb, staff very friendly and helpful. Food was amazing we chose set menu £35pp. Food was outstanding but wish there had been more dishes and quantity of of food per person did not was t suffice I.e ordered teriyaki salmon and there was only 1 piece of slam that we had to share. I felt that as we were paying per person I would have liked the food to have been equal amounts for each person, dessert was beautiful. Would definitely recommend and visit again but would be a little more cautious with choice of food. Perfect location for pre-theatre meal at the Royal Albert Hall

    Very expensive sushi that had a scant amount of fish. Definitely not worth the cost. An 8-piece roll for 23 GBP is ridiculously priced. Simple rolls were a little more reasonably priced but not for the amount of fish in them.

    It was a nice place, neat, clean and food was good but not great. Service could have done with a bit more finesse, but was polite. A good place for a quick bite to eat but no wow factor on any front.

    Lacking in atmosphere, warmth and service with a smile but the food makes up for it. Very good quality sushi but not worth the prices they charge unfortunately.
