    Food lacks authenticity. Service was so so. Ramen was bland, gyoza was good. There was a mismatch between decor, ambience and food. Overall, forgettable.

    First time visiting and was not disappointed. Food value was great and the portions were very good. Food was very flavoursome and arrived very quickly even though the restaurant was still pretty busy. All staff were very polite and accommodating. Ordered the lychee cocktails and had one of the sake drinks which would highly recommend both! Noise was a little loud to have a conversation personally but wasn't totally ridiculous and it was busy so had the chatter from other tables too which can't be helped). Lovely ambience and decorated really well.

    Lovely food but portions are on the smaller side for the price paid. Cocktails are lovely! The wait between starter and main was 30 mins which is very slow. If there is a delay, an update and apology would have been welcome. Had to return Japanese fries twice as at first they were cold then were returned reheated. Requested a new portion made which was prompt to arrive. Lovely staff, very friendly and professional!

    The food was good but it was chaotic with very few staff who seemed to know what they were doing 45 minute wait for food, then 40 minute wait for a coffee. Had to ask for water 3 times. Also only one tiny toilet for a large restaurant!

    Never eaten Japanese food before, consequently our first visit to Koi Ki was a learning experience. The restaurant has lovely decorations, well spaced tables and friendly helpful staff. The food was well presented, reasonable sized portions and we all agreed our meals were excellent.

    We had the sushi , and for the moderate restaurant price you are not really getting any better quality than what you would expect in a Tesco meal deal. Of course they serve it well presented on nice plates, but I would rather have great food. Perhaps other menu items are better. Most of the other issues stem from how the restaurant is operated: No signs to the toilets even though they are through an entryway, round a corner, up a stairway, and through unmarked doors. Chopsticks on the floor in walkways to trip on. Dirty tables that the manager had had a poor attempt at cleaning himself. A long wait at the greeting desk before any staff showed up, and then a further wait until we were seated, despite having a reservation. Despite the issues with the restaurant they have had a good attempt at creating a nice atmosphere that many of the guests clearly liked, however I doubt I would return or recommend to others as the experience overall was pretty poor.
    Koi Ki HarborneResponded on 3 March 2024
    I am extremely disappointed to read your review despite the team doing their best to accommodate you. If you recall, the restaurant was full on your arrival. Your wait for your table was no more than 5 minutes as we were waiting for the previous guest to pay their bill. We apologised for this and you seemed happy with this at the time. After being seated and you had placed your order, the gentleman at the time requested to move to a more spacious table. We offered a larger table which has just been vacated, cleaned but not yet relayed. We explained that it was clean and you accepted this table. We even cleaned it again before relaying. I apologise for the chopstick on the floor and will increase the size of our toilet sign. Overall, I think this review reflects on you rather than us.

    A great evening trying Koi Ki for the first time with a friend. The food was amazing and Ryan our server was really informative, recommending items off the menu and especially recommending a delicious yuzushu sake to accompany our food. We’re looking forward to returning in the future and introducing to others.

    An unforgettable evening at Koi Ki celebrating my wife's 40th birthday was nothing short of magical. From the moment we entered, the ambiance enchanted us, and the menu delighted our taste buds with its exquisite Japanese fare, from the divine gyoza and the teriyaki-glazed lamb. The cocktails were a revelation, each sip a journey of flavour. But what truly made the night exceptional was our waiter, Ryan, whose impeccable service and warm demeanour elevated our experience. We're already planning our return to bask in the culinary delights of Koi Ki.

    Whilst the restaurant , food and presentation were amazing i’m afraid to say the service was not up to scratch . Our waitress however was fantastic I think she was called Kelly . The other members of the waiting staff could do with being a little more engaging and look Lille they are enjoying their job !

    Venue is stunning and has a nice vibe. Sampled a range of small plates, sushi and large plates - food was average and did not wow. Chicken gyoza and squid were delish - but the only 2 plates that packed flavour. Staff seemed stressed and a little disorganised. Despite asking for no egg due to allergy - food came with half a boiled egg on top. 😬

    What a fantastic addition to Harborne. Great menu, welcoming staff and it was really busy but had a great vibe and music was great. Felt like we were in a city centre restaurant without having to go far from home.
