Food was excellent. Service was lacking, we had to shout out the waiter several times.
One of the best sushi restaurants we have eaten in. The white king salmon nigiri was amazing!
We were celebrating 4 family birthdays and had a great time! Food and service was fabulous.
Best place in town!
Overall probably the best Sushi place I have been to. Everything was very good, and prices were reasonable for the quality of food.
There were lower cost options that would have left us as full available as well, sushi in general tends to be a bit higher cost.
The Peppers were really really good - Really surprised me, and the Sexy Edamame was really good! (I usually dislike Edamame).
Overall a great experience!
Food was good but got a headache after we left.
I forgot to ask if they used MSG.
Fantastic food and drinks and an attentive staff? What’s not to love. We’ll be back...soon.
Agradable y buen comida
Wonderful food and service to match!
We spent a valentines lunch here and it was worth every second it was busy but not too loud! The service was great and the food was even better!
The service was awesome, the food was awesome would come again
This is my wife’s favorite restaurant! The sushi is awesome and there are so many options! We took my daughter and her boyfriend and they were so happy after dinner and everybody can’t wait to go back again!
Great food, great service, at a fair price!
Day after Christmas, wait staff was stretched thin, but they managed.
The food was SO DELICIOUS. Our only complaint was that our waters didn’t really get refilled, but that wasn’t a huge issue.
This was our second time dining at The Koi. Instead of sitting at the bar, we got a table this time. The service was excellent and so was the food. We will be back for happy hour and dinner!
Absolutely fabulous! Gorgeous food and great service!
The Koi has become our favorite restaurant in Tacoma! We love Sushi and The Koi is always the best sushi restaurant around! The Sake bar adds to the Japanese dining experience! The staff is always on point and helpful in every way!
We got a last-minute reservation at The Koi. When we arrived our table was ready. Great happy hour menu that we didn't anticipate. Sushi, small plates, bento box, and yakisoba was all very good. Out wait staff was very friendly.
Great food and service. We will definitely be back!
The sushi & drinks were both beautifully presented & tasted amazing
Two Koi is a friendly and roomy place with great Sushi! I always enjoy the musicians and singers they have perform there!
I threw a surprise party for my boyfriends birthday, there was about 10 other guests, the staff was so friendly and accommodating. We’re teenagers, so most establishments don’t take us seriously or assume we’re going to trash the place and tip poorly, but our waitress was so kind and even stuck around to see a magic card trick at our table. The sushi was amazing & they even gave us a music speaker with a “happy birthday” banner, definitely coming back!
Appreciated the courtesy to reseat at a booth when one opened up before our party arrived. Service was timely and friendly. Food was EXCELLENT. Super Awesome shout out to Tim and Victoria for assisting and confirming gluten-intolerant options for our party.
The service was excellent and sushi was next level.
Always an amazing experience when it come to The Koi. I am never disappointed!
It is beyond overpriced even for happy hour and the sushi rolls are so tiny! I left hungry after spending $150!
Overall food was good, fresh. Crab sashimi was a let down, very small pieces and not even sure if it was real crab - it almost tasted like imitation and they all seem to look the same, very uniform in shape and size. And the price, even though I ordered several pieces of sashimi the total price added up quickly. The quality I have to admit is better than a lot of other places in the PNW, but the price is still too high based on the quality. So although I would recommend The Koi to a friend, I would also let them know that the price is high so beware.
THEKOI is by the University of Washington at Tacoma. More than enough street parking options were available on Sunday. We visited this place at 2PM for Happy Hour because we found many good reviews about its HH deal, 3 rolls for $25. Well, its deal is NO longer available. Please see pictures attached for the current menu/pricing.
Sushi wasn't as good as I thought for the price I paid for, and it was overwhelmingly sweet or salty although we asked to apply less sauce as possible. There was only one server working, and he had to cover 8 tables. We were getting very hungry with the overall slow serving and services.
Unfortunately, we had a bit of stomach ache but riding a Lime scooter after lunch to explore the Museum of Glass and the waterfront made our day to give a 3-star rating ;)
First time eating there. I would go again. I found my favorite sushi roll there - the Commerce Roll, which was salmon, avocado, cucumber, and mango.
Im from Hawaii so I take sushi & Japanese cuisine pretty seriously and it has been really hard to find a good spot in the Pacific Northwest until I ate here. The food is incredible, I would highly recommend the Spicy Ninja roll. I have been here twice and the service is always amazing, in respectable, personable and polite Japanese fashion.
There service was horrible, waited to be seated in an unpacked afternoon setting, and after 20 minutes of waiting. My daughter and I left the establishment on father's day. Will not return ever...
A nice place. The food is excellent and worth the visit. I do think the service can be slow, but we were lucky and got Cruz as our server. He also Bartends. Cruz was very helpful and attentive. I think the other servers could learn that assisting other servers tables (Team work) would be helpful. Overall this is well worth the time and money. A fun and enjoyable restaurant.
Wife and I have been several times but we went Last Saturday 6/15/19 . Ordered 4 rolls, one of which was the Volcano Lobster Roll... this just might be the BEST thing I have ever graced my taste buds with... My server wasn't nearly as attentive as they should have been but the overall was not lessened by it.
This is my favorite Sushi to date... go, order, eat ,enjoy!...rinse, repeat.
I had eaten at The Koi when it was Two Koi. It was excellent then and better now! My two companions had never eaten at the restaurant and were blown away. They will be back with their spouses sooner than later!
Most of the food is good but the prices are too high and the service is terrible. They need to get a little more organized and hire an extra server or two
Just a busy night at the restaurant, prom night. Our waiter was pulling double duty as bartender and waiter at some tables, so I can’t judge him too harshly. Food was excellent as it always is!
This was our first visit to The Koi. We had an amazing waiter and other wait staff who stopped at our table were also fantastic. We had great banter and they were helpful with menu suggestions. The food was great and although they were busy, they got our food out to us fairly quickly. We will definitely be returning.
Our server Allison was great!
It’s okay. It was very pricy, and had the potential to meet the demand the price sets, but it fell short for me. The service was great, but the food was a letdown. I will try again though.
