Beyond Blue Koi's bright blue door and wall of long windows, amid blue walls with happy red and yellow accents, you'll find innovative and modern Chinese comfort food. Begin with savory seafood soup or Crispy Tofu with Spicy Awesome Sauce and then enjoy Firebird Duck with house noodles (may substitute chicken or tofu) accompanied by tasty bubble tea. Blue Koi is known for making delicious, well-balanced sauces and some of this area's best homemade steamed dumplings. Chili Pepper Wontons and tender, delicious Pan Fried Dumplings, available with chicken, shrimp, seafood, pork, shrimp or combo fillings, are especially popular. With many of the dishes at this colorful and hip restaurant 'off the beaten path,' among local Chinese menus, there are always interesting daily specials too.

- Asian: "Beverages play an important role here. Order mixed and specialty drinks, or beer and wine from the full-service bar. Tea-lovers appreciate a wide selection of high quality varieties and the option to purchase small or large individual cups, or small and large pots for sharing."
- Best for Asian Because: Two locations, wonderful sauces and dynamite dumplings make this a favorite dining spot for locals and visitors alike.
