Tuesday, April 6, 2021


 Thanks to the pal who took the effort in arranging a meal here with reservation.

At the Entrance

The concept of Koji is a trendy and casual Japanese sushi and sashimi joint. They focus on quality fresh seafood which is affordable, catering the nearby office crowd. They also offer an omakase menu in the evening served along with sake and shochu. However, do make sure to make a booking in advance for Omakase Menu.


The space in Koji is rather limited with about 20 diners in the high chairs sitting around the centre island kitchen. Diners can get to see everything prepared in front of their eyes.

Seating around Center Kitchen

Besides the usual menu they have, there may have more than what is offered in it. 

Additional Menu 

Do check out the boards plastered on the wall for special items or it will be best if we can approach the servers to check out for the recommendations of the day.

Menu Board

We were puzzled by the paper bag that was provided to every diner. When checked, it was actually provided to place our mask while we were dining.

Sitting at the bar top counter surrounding the central kitchen is an enjoyment to me always. I love how the staff prepare the food, especially slicing Sashimi in front of my eyes.

Preparation of Orders

As one of the Ala Carte item on the menu, the chill spiny lobster salad was sweet and tasty, evenly mixed in the sauce. Absolutely, a good starter for my meal.

Spiny Lobster Salad - $5

Sashimi Moriawase indicates an assorted Sashimi plate. This Kome on the menu consists of 10 pieces of sashimi namely, Tuna, Salmon, Great Amberjack, Sweet Prawn and Sword Fish.

Kome - $26

Our friend was in the mood for some Sake and after some hesitation over the varieties available on the menu board, we had decided to go with the 300ml bottle of Kansansui

Kansansui 寒山水 - $39 (300ml)

The sake cups that were used was pretty interesting as there was a glass rabbit in the bottom of the cup.

So Cute

The dish was a special item that is not on the written menu nor the digital menu. The Barracuda was recommended by the server. The fish was made into both Sashimi as well as torched sushi, beautifully placed and plated.

Barracuda - $50 

Besides enjoying pieces of sashimi with soy sauce and wasabi. We have some slices of Barracuda torched and bundled with sushi rice.

When the plate of Barracuda was done and left with the bones, it was then taken into the kitchen and deep-fried to crispiness. Dab them into a dollop of Japanese mayonnaise given and enjoy every bit of the remaining fish.

Deep-Fried the left overs 

Good food is worth the wait. It took quite a while for the grilled squid to be served but it was all worthwhile for its texture and quality.

Grilled Squid - $18 to $22 

The dessert hits the right spot and ending my meal on a good note. The sea salt ice cream came in a faint blue in colour and I love the taste totally. It was fragrant, packing vanilla beans taste and added with the natural sea salt taste, it makes everything went well. 

Ice Cream - $8

The overall dining experience was pleasant and with the attentive and friendly services as well as quality food, I do not mind being back again for more. As the seatings are rather limited, I suggest that it will be better to make a reservation before heading down.
