This place was terrible. It's some weird mix of Brazilian, sushi, Korean, Mexican and not sure what else. Their Caesar salad only resembles a caesar by the romaine lettuce used. It should not be called a Caesar salad. It's romaine lettuce, olives, cucumber, miso dressing and Parmesan. The sushi was just plain bad. The duck spring rolls are definitely below... More

We live in Ottawa. Have been at this restaurant twice and both times extremely dissapointed Overpriced and extremely bad service We visited when they had a half price menu, but the server charged us full price, he adjusted but with no appology. When we spoke to the manager she also didn't seem to care They have a high turn over... More

We were walking along the street - and the painters in the window drew us in. We were looking for a quick cocktail after a long business day - and this was great pick. The atmosphere was nice - quiet enough to have a conversation and a great view from the windows into the Byward Market area. I had a... More

One day, as I was starving, I went to Kinki for lunch. And ordered some delicious food. They serve that in a friendly way. The food was very attractive and delicious. The staff from here are professional. Love it.

I went here for lunch one day during a recent business trip and the sushi was great! I was told that on the weekends they have live music and cheap drinks so hopefully on my next trip I will get to have that experience! But for a lunch time place it was wonderful and the Sushi holds up with some... More

The food and service is quite good here. The atmosphere is even better. It's definitely one of the nicest spots in the Byward Market for a date night, or a group of friends.

I was up here with my husband while touring Ottawa the other week, saw this place and figured that we would give it a try. We were surprised by the great service, and more surprised by the great food at a reasonably price! Highly recommend you check this place out if you are near York Street in Ottawa!

Went in for sushi this past weekend after reading some great reviews online. We were so pleased with our choice! The sushi was fresh and innovative, and the service was prompt and friendly. The surf & turf roll and the old school kinki roll are awesome, definitely try them! And save room for dessert if you can, because the lychee... More

Loveeee Kinki, it is our go-to spot when visiting Ottowa. The burger is out of this world, I think because they use this really decadent truffle cream on it, whatever it is... I want more of it. My husband always gets sushi and really enjoys it, and the music keeps us hanging around long after the food disappears.
