Seaweed is nature's duct tape—it works as well at holding together rolls of sushi as it does at quickly fixing a mermaid's broken bikini top. Keep it together with this Groupon.
$20 for $40 Worth of Thai Food and Sushi
Red Koi's menu tells a long story of sushi rolls, Japanese dishes, and Thai delights. There's the havana roll with fish katsu, macadamia nuts, and guava paste ($15) and the santini roll ($15). Boneless crispy duck in ginger sauce ($20), shrimp pad thai ($16), and vegetable tempura with broccoli, asparagus, onions, carrots, and snow peas ($12) represent for the entree selection.
Red Koi Thai & Sushi Lounge
Red Koi Thai & Sushi Lounge’s interior is as striking and colorful as the symbolic fish it takes its name from. Walking inside, you'll find a high-hanging chandelier illuminating Japanese paintings and ornamental bamboo suspended against a backdrop of tomato-red walls. The Japanese minimalism that defines the first-floor dining area also features upstairs in a slick, straight-lined lounge, where a full bar stands ready to complement a candlelit meal or add spice to weekly karaoke and DJ events.
This dramatic presentation extends to the Coral Gables restaurant's cuisine: diners may find their appetizers arranged to resemble petals on a flower or their sushi rolls stacked into a tower. That’s thanks to Bangkok native and resident chef Tasha Tang, who also incorporates creative, globally inspired ingredients such as guava paste and sweet plantains. In addition to artfully wrapped sushi, diners can also sample traditional Thai dishes, including five types of curry and pad thai.
