There is nothing about my visit to Koya that was redeeming. The decor is awful and the food and service worse.
I had heard so many good things about this place but the reviews seem to have benefited from the skewed London hype that surrounds most new openings. The food was appalling. My friend and I both ordered the Tori Nikomi which is advertised as chicken and veg with udon noodles. It arrived with a soft poached egg (which wasn't advertised and which my friend couldn't eat as she is pregnant)
Vegetables were lacking and the chicken was full of fat with huge chunks of gristle running down the middle. When I complained about the meat I was told to ‘eat round it’ and they would bring me some more vegetable – cue unidentified raw white veg turning up.
We left our meals and asked for the bill and a discount. We then received the bill with the optional service charge removed and had to argue for a discount on the vile food. The restaurant is a disgrace.
