Koi is one of the new kids on the block when it comes to the sushi world. However, Koi is soon making its way to the top, among competitors like Nobu and Sushi Roku. The dining room at Koi is what really draws people in. Three large bronze Buddha statues sit happily above the entrance to the restaurant enticing anyone who walks by. Once inside, the very dimly lit dining room highlights the sushi chefs situated behind the bar. Dark elegant fabrics look like they were shipped directly from Japan and sewn by hand. However, the real competitor in this restaurant is the food.
Koi serves a nice mix of both traditional and gourmet sushi rolls, Asian inspired rice and noodle selections, as well as steak and seafood entrees. Koi’s signature appetizer is the ahi tuna on a bed of crispy rice. The rice is warm and crispy and perfectly complements the cold yet spicy tuna situated on top. This is by far the most popular appetizer on the menu. The Baked Lobster Roll is also a Koi favorite. The warm roll melts in your mouth as it is served along side a creamy sauce. For dessert, the chocolate fondue is the perfect ending. Warm fondue is served with green tea loaf, coconut marshmallows, and other assorted fruits. This restaurant is truly one of the best that the hotel has to offer and it is worth the trip no matter where you are staying while visiting Las Vegas.
