Best sushi and fresh fish ever!!! Everything you taste from that place is amazing and the cocktails are just another level (really recommend the mezcal and spicy mango). Perfect ambience and the service is excellent too. Is a bit expensive but worth every penny!!!

Every dish we ordered was absolutely delicious and their cocktails are spectacular! The only down side was that it was very busy so service was a little slow however, the waiters were very sweet and apologetic about our wait. We will definitely be back because the food was amazing and totally worth waiting for!

Supposed to meet friends but they had to cancel last minute. Staff was incredibly accommodating and everything was top notch. They now have a list of their wonderful whiskeys which wasn’t available last time. I definitely enjoyed sampling the options! Food was delicious and service impeccable. My only hesitation is the cost, which if you’re prepared for, is worth it. But we spent more here than Nobu, Dinner, and various other Mayfair or Chelsea dining destinations. Overall, a neighbourhood gem for the right occasion.

Food was brilliant, service could have been a bit tighter by taking dirty plates off table. Also more vegan things would be great.

Sadly a slight let down. We used to frequently visit when it was Mai Tai. Sadly this is playing on a reputation of trying to be Nobu - similar prices, but without the finesse, quality and care. The food did not have the same delicacy in preparation, and the wine was direly cheap quality but heavily priced - our bottle felt like the reduced section of our local Co-Op and vinegary in comparison. We don’t mind paying for good food and wine, but it felt like someone was pushing for a profit return and had taken their eye off the ball. It just leaves for a bad night. Service was slow off the mark for drinks and food order and all felt a little bit mutton dresses up as lamb... £300+ for 2 people for 1 bottle of wine and a drink at the bar each leaves the impression “must do better”

I was disappointed you did not enjoy Koji we do our best to make sure that our guests have a wonderful evening. We do not try to be Nobu but have often been favourably compared to them. It is a shame you did not speak to your waiter about the food & wine. No wine should taste vinegary it is possible the wine was corked or just not to your taste. We readily change or refund both wine & food if you are not happy. We are the same owners as Mao Tai & care as much about our restaurant as we did then.

Wonderful meal; as good as you’d get from Zuma or Roka. First time we’ve been but definitely not the last. Expensive for this part of time but decent value given the quality and overall experience

The food was very good. I highly recommend the tacos, they were fresh and tasty. The service was excellent very attentive and friendly. And they went the extra step and acknowledged the occasion at the time of dessert.

The only reasons for slightly marking down the ambience is that it is quite noisy and the value because price for portion size is a bit high.

Overall a nice restaurant for a special occasion. We’ll definitely be going back.

Koji seems to be about style over substance. The service was reasonably attentive for an average restaurant but well below what would be expected at the price. The food claims to pride itself on fresh ingredients but in reality it was disappointingly average. The sushi platter included some fish which was not at all fresh and looked like it had been hacked by a blunt knife. For £65 for 14 pieces of nigiri (before service charge) I was expecting something out of the top drawer, it was far below that and I’ve had far better at half the price in many other places in London. If going with a Japanese theme it would make sense to invest in a Japanese chef. Disappointing and ridiculously overpriced for what is delivered.
