Koi is a long time favorite of mine. I have been coming here for 20 years. It is consistently good. Today is fresh fish after thanksgiving. The blue fin tuna and blue fin toro is awesome.

This place is always busy and never disappoints. The fish is always fresh and the portions are larger than one would expect from a Japanese restaurant. The service is spot on and I've never been disappointed. The key is to arrive by 6:00 M-Sat; 5:30 on Sunday and 9/10 you will be seated. Anytime afterwards, there will be a wait.... More

This is a nice and unique Sushi joint. the prices are mid-high $$...but you will not be disapppointed with the quality and and selections. It's a casual atmosphere and service is great. Sometimes there may be a bit of a wait, but well worth it. When I take my out of state/country relatives and friends they are very satisfied....

Our friends that we were visiting took us here for our last meal before leaving so cal. The shrimp tempura with vegetables was great. It did not taste greasy and the vegetables were fresh. I am definitely going back.

Best sushi in Orange County has them coming from near and far. Owner Go and chef Daigo present only the freshest of the fresh ocean bounty.

I was stuck in traffic and had to take a break. I stopped here and decided to stay and have hot sake and hamachi Sashimi. Yum! I will be back.

We had dinner at Koi last night. I was actually referred to the restaurant by someone sitting next to me on a plane - as we shared favorite eating places in the Huntington Beach area. The person said I would not be disappointed - he was absolutely right. Koi is a small restaurant on Pacific Coast Highway in Seal Beach.... More

We love the food here, sushi and tempura, and the salads are outstanding. There are two wonderful choices of dressing.

Koi is the place my family has been going to for at least 27 years now. Koi is where I learnt to eat wasabi or to eat with chopsticks and develop my love for Japanese cuisine and culture. The owner still remembers to this day that 26 years ago my mother could not fit her pregnant belly (me) under the... More

We went here recently for sushi and sake. Both were great! My only complaint is that it is very bright inside. While the food is a little pricey, it is worth it. The service was also great!
