Nice subtle spot off 1 ST SW. Place to enjoy a good fresh meal in a friendly clean environment. Emphasis on providing gluten free options is a real bonus. My coconut curry dish was flavorful but was served luke warm.

This is a great little place. I went here on a date and got to enjoy a great prawn noodle bowl and some local music. Wonder atmosphere and genuine service is something Cafe Koi offers for its guests.

Went for a Saturday evening dinner because we heard the food was good and there was local entertainment. We were not disappointed by either. We both had one of their 'Signature Bowls' with Jasmine Rice and a selection of veggies/meat/tofu - delicious! Meanwhile we were...More
