Koji 1

Squaremeal Review of Koji ?

The reinvention of pan-Asian hangout Mao Tai as Japanese-themed Koji has done little to dampen local enthusiasm for this bubble of West End glitz in SW6. Now centred around a "gorgeous" sushi bar, its sleek lines and seductive lighting suggest serious dining – although there's plenty of fun to be had under the feather chandeliers too. Attention to detail is evident throughout, from the "incredible" cocktails (don’t miss the chilli and lemongrass Martini) and “best sushi in SW London” to trendy tapas plates (chicken and shiso gyoza, summer rolls with yuzu dressing) and knockout robata grills served on pretty artisan crockery – perhaps pork belly with spicy sweet miso or glazed salmon teriyaki. The kitchen is now in the hands of Rolando Ongcoy (from the distinguished Nobu stable), and readers are blown away by his “sublime food”, as well as Koji’s “terrific ambience” and “always great” service. Prices can be eye-watering, but this hotspot is still a "must-visit, even if you don't live in Parsons Green".

We started a great Saturday evening at the very well-stocked cocktail bar and progressed (rather slowly) to our table. We were early, (it was about 8pm by the time we sat down)and had plenty of choice from the various dining areas. We chose one with a view over the charming patio garden. We ate a la carte, and had four small dishes and two larger ones. We had no room for rice, and left feeling rather full. Everything was perfectly prepared and delightfully presented. Even the sleek black chopsticks...

    TheFoodaholic :: REVIEW: Koji, New King's Road, Parsons Green

    So it’s official. I have a serious obsession with Japanese cuisine – especially so if it has a little fusion going on. I love those western hints making their way into dishes or the peruvian flavours of a refreshing ceviche matching up with the flavours of Japan. Not only has my love for the cuisine spawned because of the multitude of flavours these mix of cuisines brings to the table but also because it’s just something a little different – it’s always exciting and evolving. Little did I know that only a short walk away from me was a new Japanese restaurant called Koji.

    A Girl Has to Eat - Restaurant Reviews & Food Guide :: A Girl has to Eat - Koji

    Koji Japanese Restaurant in Parsons Green is a joint collaboration between Nobuhisha Takahashi, the former sushi head chef at both Nobu London and Nobu Cape Town, and Mark Barnett, the former proprietor of the now closed Mao Tai Chinese restaurant. The Koji concept centres around contemporary Japanese dining, ranging from fresh sushi and sashimi being carved out at the beautiful sushi bar, to meats and seafood caramelising sweetly on the robata grill. On the a la carte menu is an array of modern Japanese dishes that draw influences from South America and Europe.
    Koji offers a sophisticated yet relaxed atmosphere....

    S.W. Foodie :: S.W.Foodies: Koji - Parsons Green

    The infamous Mio Tai on the New Kings Rd has had a total change over and is now a swanky Japanese restaurant and cocktail bar which, quite frankly, looks exactly the same but with an added sushi bar, new menu's and a new name...Koji.

    One balmy Saturday evening before heading to a birthday in Putney Mr D and I popped in for a bite and to check out what was once our 'go to' cheer up place if I ever got a parking ticket (that happens far too regularly!).

    SilverSpoon London :: Koji

    It’s rare that I uncover a real gem, a place so good that I’m still thinking about the delicious food days later…Well, that’s how Mr Silver and I felt about the wonderful Koji, a Japanese restaurant in Parsons Green.
    Before I even get to the food, I have to start with the amazing cocktails…I chose a Porn Star martini, a delicious blend of passion fruit, vanilla sugar and vodka with a shot of champagne on the side. It was heavenly, with the sweet fruit in the coupe being undercut with the dry champagne. I could literally drink this all day, but that might not end well…
