The restaurant Koi at Holywood had been recommended by friends, and we took ourselves off ready for a bit of spice. This is a multi-Asian cuisine place offering a range of Malaysian, Chinese, Thai and Vietnamese dishes. We were overwhelmed by the range on offer, but very happy with the quality of the meals. Being able to dose up on chilli, garlic and ginger with our favourite vegetables was a gift! The place was packed, too – mostly locals who know a good thing when they find it.
Some of the wait staff, however, were less enthusiastic than others in serving, and were almost impatient with us choosing to savour our meal instead of shovel it down and leave (maybe they were eager for us to vacate our table to get another sitting in).
The food was excellent, though, and I would recommend eating here (or at least getting take away).
