My partner and I have tried several dishes from Koi...both takeaway & dining in. Every experience has been a positive one! The salted chilli ribeye beef is so tasty & packs just the right punch in spicy chilli! The curries...both the beef and chicken are packed full of meat & the sauce is beautifully flavoured & the perfect consistency. For... More

We were looking for somewhere to go for a nice quiet meal in the Holywood area and came upon this place and what a find. The food was superb, from the ribeye steak to the sweet and sour chicken. The service was quick and the staff couldn't have been nicer. Lovely atmosphere and surroundings. Would highly recommend this place and... More

I was introduced to this restaurant recently by a friend. It serves the best, most fresh tasting Asian and Chinese food I have ever eaten in North Down. I will be returning regularly.

I went here as my usual takeaway was closed. The curried beef was delicious, lots of tender beef slices and just the right amount of spice. The chips were crispy but not overcooked. I will definitely go here again, the staff were so polite and held open the door for me!

We arrived at lunchtime for a take out order, their take out doesn't open until 5pm (which we only discovered when we arrived and saw a sign on the door) however they were kind enough to make an exception and serve us anyway. Excellent food, authentic Asia cusine. Lovely staff, bit pricey but streets ahead of your average Chinese take... More

Koi never fails to please with its wide menu of Cantonese/Thai/Malaysian/Korean and Japanese selections. Despite the menu size the quality never diminishes and both food and service remain consistent and efficient. Portion sizes are generous. The staff are always polite, friendly and courteous and this, combined with its amber decor and comfortably spaced seating, gives the restaurant a lovely warm... More

In order to truly review a place, you need to try it a few times over a period of time. I can safely say I have both eaten in Koi over the years and also had takeaway many times. This remains a popular spot, however I was shocked that after the recent introduction of mandatory display of Food Hygiene Ratings... More

Booked for Saturday night and although the restaurant was busy they seemed to concentrate on take always first. Asked for a jug of water 3 times and constantly had to catch the eye of a waiter if we wanted to order/when we were finished etc. Starter of quarter duck was great hence the two star review. Another starter of thousand... More
