Lovely staff, food looks picturesque and there was literally no wait for the food.
The food was pricey, however it is an ideal place for a date or anniversary, where you can spurge a little.
I would highly recommend the place especially for people that have a sweet tooth and/or Instagram foodie addicts.
The duck breast was amazingly brilliant and I would go there again for it.

Impeccable service level & very polite & professional staff. Very attentive to detail with constant followups by staff. No delays in between each dish. This was my second time visiting KOI on special occasions. Consistency of high standards was definitely noticeable compared to my first visit. My favourite dish was the 'grilled pumpkin with coconut rendang'. Simply amazing! I will definitely be coming back for many more visits! Thanks KOI & team!

My boyfriend and I were here for the special Valentine's dinner menu. The grilled pumpkin dish was delicious and so was the duck breast. The WA mud crab dish was lovely too. Both desserts were lovely especially the geranium whipped ganache. Although the food was a little slow to arrive at times (it's understandable considering it was a very busy night), the staff were apologetic and the service was always friendly and attentive. Great experience!

This was my second time at koi desserts and have really enjoyed it both times. My only gripe was that there were no matches wines/drinks with each of the courses. When we asked for suggestions, we were given some but with very little explanation/knowledge behind the choices.

Food was beautiful. We did the 4 course dessert tasting and it was amazing. The presentation was just as beautiful as the flavours. Seemed to be a few new staff, but the only (if only) fault. Place was great, can’t wait to dine here again! Thanks for a fantastic evening.

Second visit. First was for the dessert only menu - a great experience.

This was for a balanced meal. Verdict.

Its called Koi Dessert Bar for a reason. Great place for a special occasion visit to enjoy the fantastic desserts.

The mains are creative and show glimpses of brilliance, but portion control is an issue. hence the low value for money rating. Service is attentive, but it took two or three goes to get the message across, I'll wear the bulk of that one, but it it was more noticeable at this venue than others, even ones with higher ambient noise levels.

Will I be back? Not going out of my way, Sydney has plenty of other places to explore. Will keep an ear out in case there is some reason to move Koi onto page one of places to go, again.

I’ve been there last time for my birthday dinner party with husband and little baby (9m old).
I’ve booked table already but when i asked them for a high chair, they said there’s only one high chair but s.o else already booked. What a joke! It’s big, fancy and famous restaurant but only have one high chair. 😂😂😂 Then we decided to come back for dessert only, the waitress came and gave us the reserved high chair before. I don’t understand that they don’t want to upset the customer or they don’t really have money to buy another high chair.

Then after that, we’ve ordered the food. I thought that it’s been cooked for a while, not hot. The food is normal but good looking.

Only recommend for dessert. Very good taste and decoration is nice too but pricy.

We had the set menu and were very excited to try the desserts. But a big surprise for us was that we enjoyed the fish and the sliders more. Your food was delicious. We purchased some desserts for a take home treat and the pricing was very reasonable for inner city dining.

Reynold is obviously known for his desserts but the dinner served was uniformly excellent and played to his Asian roots. His attention to detail, so apparent in his confections, was abundantly clear in his mains and starters. I was fortunate to eat at Dinner by Heston in Melbourne a few days prior to eat long at Koi and it’s not an exaggeration that the mains were on par, and in one instance, better than its equivalent at Dinner. As for the desserts, he truly is one of the most talented and gifted patissiers and in my opinion, is in the same league as Dominique Ansel, Cedric Grolet, Adriano Zumbo, Jordi Roca and even the brilliant Christelle Brua. Each dessert reflected the care and technique in not only pairing interesting flavors while ensuring a range of contrasting textures. Truly one of the better dining experiences in Sydney.

This restaurant was on my bucket list. Was wanting to try desserts that were multidimensional in flavour. So many desserts you see look great but end up just tasting like sugar. We really enjoyed ourselves.

The dishes (Just Desserts) were all well presented. The time in between desserts was a bit long and unfortunately we ended on a chocolate one that no one in our group liked. Overall it’s still good, just some of the flavours wasn’t to everyone’s liking.

We came here for my husband’s birthday and we so excited for the dessert tasting menu. We were unfortunately very disappointed with the food and the service. The dessert tasting menu wasn’t unique enough to warrant 65 dollars pp. we could have just bought 4 cakes at the cafe for less money. The service was also very poor and we even waited at least thirty minutes after we finished eating before I had to ask them for the bill. When you are paying for a nice dessert and only get 4 very similar items that were very tiny and lacked variety and technique we cannot recommend that the value is there. Will definitely not come back and won’t recommend to others.

I booked for a Christmas themed high tea session. It was great to be seated in the upstairs dining area and at the time it was still quiet but the chill music really set the atmosphere. Even though we were early to our reservation, the service was great and friendly. The high tea was absolutely amazing! Although each portion was small it packed so much flavour. The presentation of the food was so pretty and intricate, it's definitely something to be excited about. After this experience I will definitely book for another high tea session or just eat the selection of cakes they have on display.

Overall I enjoyed the food and the experience. The food was beautifully presented and very tasty however there was little scope to vary the set menu and personally I am not a fan of having a fish entree (mackerel) with a meat main (Wagu beef). It clashes. Also when I pay over $40 for a main I expect a bit more on my plate. Not just sliced beef. Call me old fashioned but a few vegetables would have been nice. The deserts were a standout. Absolutely amazing. A unique, albeit expensive, dining experience. I would recommend Koi for desert to anyone (as their name implies) but for dining, although I enjoyed the food, it wasn't good value for money.
