Koi Japanese Restaurant Gurney Plaza Penang

My friend who went over there for their buffet came back and told me that their food was bad and not to mention food presentation was as it's worse. So me being me, I decided to give it a try. I went in between the buffet sessions and viola. Found something that is my money's worth.

I would let the pictures do the talking. Free flow of sushi for RM25++ so don't expect much in terms of presentation for mass produce to cater for 70 customers at full seating right? Just when I was expecting the worse as what my friend had told me but the price is cheap enough to say satisfy my stomach and attract me over to give them a try. This is what i got.


Their Buffet menu.. You'd be suprised if you match them to their ala carte menu. Comparison? If you come at normal times and not the buffet style, the chefs would have more time to dress the sushi with better presentation. Having said this, it's not that their presentation during the buffet time is that bad either. Have a look yourself.

Sashimi Special order! This goes at normal menu price if you decides to order them. Not too thick, not too thin. Just nice when it melts in your mouth. And that's the salmon nigiri at the background.

Yes I am seated in front of the chef bar. So I get to see fresh sashimi getting sliced and how they make my sushi! Best seat in the whole restaurant if you ask me. This is only if you are going in gang of say 2-4 peoples.

Chicken Katsu Maki hot and straight from the oven.. Still smoking hot when I had them.

Ebi tempura handroll.. Ordered like 4 of them.. Couldn't stop eating them..

Salmon Skin Hand Roll... Best eaten when the skin is crunchy!!

The sushis ordered. Not a bad presentation at all right?


Oh yes. This is their signature dish. Catered for lightweight stomachs. You did be surprised if I tell you that it's not a rice based sushi but bread. The Bread Crunch Maki is definitely a must try if you visit. I think they are doing a promotion for this in October. I went home all full and satisfied. There aren't really a vast variety of sushis to choose from as compared to other outlets with kaitan belt like sushi king and sakae sushi but I would say the experience without the kaitan belt gives it a totally different atmosphere and in case you wonder, No I don't get paid for writing this up. Nor did I get any discount. Come on la RM30 this food is above cheap and good.
