About Koi Los Angeles
Koi Los Angeles is the flagship restaurant of Koi Group and has been a staple in the LA dining scene since opening its doors in 2002. Executive Chef Robb Lucas’ imaginative dishes are inspired by traditional Japanese preparations, then deconstructed and infused with modern California accents. The menu includes a variety of savory cooked dishes, traditional sushi and sashimi, as well as creative rolls. Koi’s décor, conceptualized by its own design team, reflects the tenets of feng shui and Zen Buddhism. Each of the four dining rooms are illuminated by candlelight and outfitted in colors that evoke nature’s elements of water, air, fire and earth; multiple fireplaces and waterscapes add to its design. Additionally, the restaurant features a separate lounge, two private dining areas, a sushi bar and three indoor/outdoor patios.
