The food was amazing and fresh butte portions were very small for the amount you pay. I left feeling in satisfied. But I'm a big eater so it may not be a fair review. The food was so good though. I hate rating it a 3 star experience. Bit I went on more than one occasion and every time it... More

Just had lunch there. Surprised by some of the harsh reviews. I am a bit picky about sushi and I thought this place was great. Exceptionally fresh fish. Reasonably priced - not cheap but not expensive. The eel nigiri could have used more of a sear and less of sauce, but that's a minor complaint. I will go back for... More

My friend and I decided to stop by here for dinner and realized soon afterwards that it was a mistake. The atmosphere was nice enough on the patio but it took us a long time to order because we were bombarded with a most confusing menu. It was quite an extensive menu but the way they were sectioned off were... More

I stopped in for a quick lunch cause I had been craving sushi. I've been to this place in the past, but then because of some issues with the owner spending time in jail etc, I took a bit of a break. However, today figured id try again. As usual, the service is a tad slow but I was pleasantly... More

We walked by this restaurant looking for a place and decided to try it. Had I read the previous I would not have picked this location but that was a last minute decision. I must say that the sushi that we ordered were not bad. Not the best that we ever had but not the worst ever. I have some... More

A restaurateur who dished out lewd e-mails and a fake adult site profile to a disgruntled diner lost a bid to have her conviction overturned at the province's appeal court Tuesday. But Marisol Simoes, who had been out on bail pending appeal, can now serve the rest of her 90-day sentence on weekends so she can care for her three... More

We had no idea this place was going to be so good. The atmosphere is great with very hip music and modern decor. The food is a fusion of Latin/Asian cuisines. All I can say is yummy! Please check out their website because they have happy hour and this includes drinks and some dishes so you can save tons of... More

Good food, good location, but pricey for value. This place is worth trying but you will leave hungry or paying more than you would like. There are other good sushi restaurants in the city but they may not have the lux factor.

I love the vibe in this place. The service is bar none and if you like late night sushi, drinks and tunes, Kinki is the place to be. I love the sushi, but if sushi isn't your thing, they have lots to offer. The drinks were wonderful and Sean is an amazing dj, you will have a hard time sitting... More

I checked out the majestic garden wednesday. Vegetarian/vegan platter for $25 and $5 house wine. My dishes were delicious and I ate every little bite. Wasn't very good with chop sticks and the server was nice enough to bring me utensil. I really like having vegan options at regular restaurants. My vegan friends and I will visit again.
