Another great sushi meal at Kinki!

Kinki has recently renovated and still serves up great sushi and drinks. Located in the Byward market, you can enjoy your meal outside on the patio. It gets busy on the weekend, be sure to reserve.

Recently, I went to Kinki Lounge kitchen in Byward Market. I wasn’t expecting anything much from this restaurant as I did not receive any extra ordinary comments from anyone. As soon as I stepped inside, I was pleased with the ambience and the service. I saw a wide variety of delights in the menu, I like tasting different types of... More

Must of forgotten to put gin in our cocktails which cost $8 each. The presentation in a tumbler glass looked cheap. The rolls were OK.

I have eaten here several times and used to enjoy it. This latest meal will be the last. The food is pricey, which is fine if the quality is there but it just isn't anymore. Too bad.

They recently renovated this place. Looks modern and the new menu is great! I had a quick visit and decided to have an app since didn't have much time. Ordered wings which only comes in one favour/type. It was fantastic!

We've been to this somewhat pretentious feeling restaurant a few times and always enjoyed the food; it's very creative and interesting and the staff were always willing to help work around my food sensitivities. It's a bit pricier than we normally would spend but we like to splurge here occasionally because the food is so good. Imagine by shock and... More

I was at Kinki's a couple of weeks ago and met a friend at the bar for a cocktail when finally after having a look at the menu, we decided to stay to eat. I was really happy we did. I hadn't been back to this restaurant in a long time and it was for no reason in particular. I... More

Welcoming entrance upon arrival. Warm atmosphere allowed a comfortable experience. Menu suggestions superb. "Ring of Fire" maki rolls were quite the indulgence; flavorful, new and the perfect step away from classic sushi. Timeliness: impeccable. The menu information, along with the suitable pairings, gave the opportunity for specific indulgences. Our server was Elle who kindly guided us along a refreshing experience.... More

Sushi and tapas were simply delicious! Menu is quite eclectic, and there was something for everyone. Design is very simple but tasteful, and the service was great. Definitely will be back!
