A casual sit-down or take-out Japanese spot, Koi satisfies the sushi cravings of Northern Liberties dwellers. The cheerful interior mixes orange walls, white tables, and red chairs, punctuated with a “koi crossing” sign. Salads venture beyond greens with ginger dressing and often incorporate an assortment of pickled vegetables. Sushi comes a la carte or in various sizes of samplers, and while you’ll find spicy tuna and California rolls, it’s Koi’s special creations that stand out. The Volcano roll combines eel, salmon, avocado and tobiko with broiled scallops, and is topped in a rich, spicy sauce. Every month features a special roll – some months are thematic, like February’s heart-shaped version. A selection of hot entrées like beef bulgogi and noodles complete the menu.
