First time here and the food was incredible, some of the best Japanese cuisine I’ve tasted in London, service was also on point, very attentive, polite staff that always had a smile on their face. Will definitely be returning.

The service and ambience were great and I like the decor very much. Unfortunately, my yellowtail sashimi was not fresh (strong smell and slightly slimy) and my husband’s chicken skewers were tasteless. The spicy soup was delicious and the nigiris were fresh and beautifully presented.

It’s ok. If you sit at the front it’s like having dinner in a fairly lively cocktail bar and we felt food was a bit expensive for what it was.

The restaurant looks very nice and the food is definitely very good. Negatives are: noisy place and very high prices. Not something I would look for if you are interested to have a true Japanese experience.

We went here a year ago, very nice experience. Here it was for my wife’s birthday, service took ages to take our order busy with large tables...food was also a disappointment in the end, even if the waiter tried to make it for the wrong start, overall we will not come back...

Food was really nice and very good service from the waiter (not the maitre). However, feel it is too expensive. Went for dinner with my wife an 10y old son, no wine and one desert, and paid 230 pounds! I have paid less in a few Michelin star restaurants.

Always a treat and always great food. Start with cocktails - some of the best in town. The food is fab - fresh and so tasty. The ceviche zings, tempuras are light and crisp and the meat perfectly cooked.

Favourites are still the black cod, small battered prawns and Spicy lamb.

It can get noisy at the weekend but we love the buzz. Service is excellent and superb front of house (Denisa).

Been coming since before it changed its name. Had a bad experience last time but thought we’d give it another go as we live round the corner. Very poor service. Barman’s opening line was “we’re busy, so be quick.” Reasonable food but way overpriced. Little wonder it’s dead outside of the weekends.

Everytime we have guests in London or we want to spoil our slef to good sushi we go to Koji! The ambiance makes you feel like you are out in Mayfair, but still in the comfort of your home neighbourhood. Food is fantastic and so is service!

Excellent sushi to rival many of the best places to have Japanese cuisine around London, plus a great atmosphere. Our waiter was slightly intrusive though, and insisted clearing our table up every 5/10 mins, as well as disrupting conversation to constantly ask how our food was. All in all a great restaurant but I think the waiters should be told to be more mindful of the guests at times.

Friday night at Koji was out of this world - such a fun, energetic and friendly place to be and the staff are so warm and engaging. Occasionally, fine dining restaurants can lack a little personality, but Koji have the balance down to a t…We’re not local to Parsons Green but friends of ours had been raving about it - whether you are local to the area or not, Koji is beyond doubt worth the pilgrimage! The food is fantastic, incredibly fresh and so elegantly presented. The wine list is fantastic too – not just your typical 'go-to's'! Thank you to everyone in the team - can't wait to come back!

the worst experience in table service. The waiters weren't so bad but the lady at the front who was doing the seating was absolutely rude. Even though we had made a reservation, we had specified the arrival time, spoken during the day to the manager to confirm the number of people, she insisted that she needed 10-20 min to decide which table to put us on(we were a table or 3): this is when there was only 1 table occupied in the whole restaurant. She simply couldn't decide, hadn't read the notes on any of the reservations and was completely unprepared. She looked at the screen for 10-15 min while we are standing next to her waiting. This is absolutely unacceptable at a restaurant with such prices. She ruined our dinner by providing a very arrogant attitude. The worst part is that she said that because the restaurant is very 'exclusive' and they were so busy this waiting for a table was normal, albeit the restaurant was pretty much empty. Very sad that she ruined the dining experience from the start. Unfortunate, indeed.

You made a mistake with your timing. Our security camera at the entrance recorded your arrival at 18.04.37 by 18.05.51 you were being seated, 1 MINUTE 14 SECONDS not 10 to 15 minutes. We seated you at a table for 6 & as we were removing the chairs you said your sister & family were coming for a drink so we left the chairs. Your dining experience was not ruined it was enhanced you booked for 2 & we happily organised 4 more people at your table on a very busy NYE, Unfortunate?I don't think so :)
