Koi Asian Cafe stirs up classic Chinese entrees and ample dinner specials served in a cozy, plum-themed dining room. Chopsticks, fingers, or forks shaped like chopsticks can inaugurate meals by unpacking appetizers of eight pork pan-fried dumplings ($5). The sweet-and-sour-chicken special confounds its rice and egg- or spring-roll cohorts with fair-weather flavors, and meat or tofu morsels skip through forests of stir-fried broccoli. A lengthy roster of beers and wines quells palate fires started by the thai-curry-coconut entree ($8 for a small, $11 for a large), which douses bites of chicken, beef, and shrimp in a tropical spicy sauce. During lunch hours, a parade of $5 specials pairs main courses with rice and an egg roll or spring roll. As they nosh on Asian eats, guests can follow football games and kid-family programs on the café’s four TVs, or debate politics with talking heads of lettuce at the salad-and-fruit bar.
