The best part about eating Chinese food is the confidence that comes when more than one billion people tacitly support your culinary decision; the second-best part is that their bakers can see the future. Revel in these perks with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of sushi, Chinese cuisine, and drinks at Koi in Evanston.
Executive Chef Bing Zhou supplies Koi with a menu featuring four regional styles of authentic Chinese cooking and premium-grade sushi and sashimi. Ovens cook crispy duck twice to achieve double deliciousness ($13.95), and soong with stir-fried chicken ($11.95), shrimp ($14.95), or vegetables ($9.95) floats to the mouth on crisp, levitating lettuce leaves. Indecisive eaters can select the sushi starter with one kappamaki and four pieces of sushi ($10.95). The menu complies with multifarious mouth mandates, featuring options with all veggies, no wheat, low sodium, no MSG, minimal fat, and sans melted-down Playmobil figurines. Koi has a full bar with a wide selection of sake, a beautiful wood sushi bar, and elegant decorations. The lounge hosts a fireplace, exposed-brick walls, and a waterfall that supplies a constant flow of tranquil vibes.
This Groupon is good for dine-in only and is not valid on holidays.
Located in the heart of Evanston’s restaurant row, Koi Restaurant’s sleek interior places diners in leather seats beside exposed-brick and polished-slate walls decorated with murals of Chinese country scenes. Once seated, guests can sip sake or craft cocktails while perusing a diverse menu of traditional Chinese and Japanese fare. Delectable meals of braised meats, noodles, and stir-fries are accompanied by delicate morsels of sea bass, eel, yellowtail, and tuna formed into sushi rolls. In addition to these flavorful feasts, owner Sandy Chen has curated a long list of regional Chinese cuisine, ranging from spicy Szechuan-style red snapper to crispy Hunan-style chicken.
