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!

Truly excellent food. The quality of sushi and presentation of dishes is top notch. Pricing is about 20% over the top however and service is not seamless.

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.

Not our best visit, feel that the food quality was not as good as on previous visits. Still probably too expensive for the area also.

The DJ turning up the volume was an issue as our table was under a speaker making it hard to hear what others were saying.

I was rather disappointed with Koji. The food is fine, although the tempura batter was heavier than it should have been. The dishes arrived completely randomly which is a bit annoying. It is eye-wateringly expensive for what it is, which is a fairly unremarkable take on Japanese food. The best bit of the menu is the puddings, which were really good.
Unfortunately the acoustics are appalling and conversation virtually impossible if you are on one of the larger tables. It might be okay if you are just two, but we were group of five and wanted to talk, but really couldn’t. We couldn’t even hear what the waiter was saying. We are unlikely to go back.

The decor is fantastic with very presentable service staff. Great atmosphere for a Saturday night date. The food was spot on and I would highly recommend Koji purely on that basis. However, I did have two grievances. Firstly, the taco's are criminally undersized. Secondly, my bill had an additional item on it for £54 which I did not order. Luckily this was effortlessly rectified.

We needed a bit of help choosing for 8 people with such an extensive menu but the waiting staff were helpful and patient and looked after us consistently well all evening! Fairly pricey but worth it and a request for a Birthday surpise with a candle was immediately accepted and much appreciated - we will be back :-)

Delicious cocktails & food. Great service. One dish delivered in error but didn’t matter. Only v slight grumble was at the VERY loud next door table birthday celebration - we moved to the bar area to finish our meal & drinks.

We’ve been coming here for the past three years. Great food, great service, and drinks. What’s more is how well we are treated as a family. I appreciated the very special birthday we had for my wife, and how good they are to our young child.

We had a lovely time for my friends birthday at the weekend. We had booked dinner before going for drinks around the corner in Fulham. The food was gorgeous! I'd definitely return, the only downside was the atmosphere was really quiet as not many people there but we did eat really early at 6.30pm so I guess that is expected. It started filling up around 7.45pm.

Always enjoy a visit to Koji. The food is always first class and the staff are always very attentive. the food is on the pricey side but the flavours and variety make it worthwhile. Top picks on the menu are the Rock'n'Roll Shrimp and the Beef Tenderloin.

Koji is billed as a Japanese Restaurant although it does not appear to have any Japanese staff. The cooking of the food can only be described as very poor. The prices are Knightsbridge Mayfair but for this lack of quality at even half the price it would still be overpriced. The wine list is also way overpriced rand the choice of wines very poor.

I do not recommend visiting Koji

The food is fantastic! But for a restaurant in Fulham/Parsons Green, (not central London) it is very expensive, £5 for one piece of nigiri sushi! Saying that, the food was excellent. I’d suggest they offer a more affordable tasting menu and a few bottles of wine under £30 a bottle, that way I’d become a regular, but for now, it’s a very special occasion only restaurant!

Amazing dinner. Impeccable service and outstanding food as always. I love how beautifully the food is presented and how chic but still cosy the room looks. A real neighbourhood gem and head and shoulders above most local restaurants. The best thing of all are the cocktails. Hands down the best tasting and most beautiful ones in london! If I had to give some balance to my glowing review, I would say that while the food is well priced for the amazing quality and freshness, the cocktails are eye- wateringly expensive! Eg £17 for a Bellini. But the best Bellini I’ve ever had so .....

We had quite an early table on Saturday evening (7:30pm) but the place was busy and there was a nice atmosphere.
The Service was fantastic, our waiter was attentive and really helpful.
So far so good - then the cocktails arrived, superb, well thought out, well prepared and pretty faultless.
We often eat in Roka, Nobu and Zuma. The menu at Koji is familiar so comparison is pretty easy - I've got to say that the food is easily on par, everything came out perfectly and tasting excellent. As usual, we over ordered.... that just meant I left very full after finishing everything!
The decor, furnishings and the set up are great, well laid out and very comfortable it certainly has a high end feel about it.
My one criticism: It's pricey, the same pricing as the Mayfair equivalents, yet it is located in Fulham.... I can't quite understand why the prices are the same. You do get what you pay for though.
Anyway, regardless, the place is excellent and quite possibly my new "go to" restaurant.
