“The Best in Kingston”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2014

I've been to Sima Sushi many times, mainly for lunch. Great value, sparkling service, and great sushi, sashimi, and tempura. Take it from an Oriental who was brought up on this stuff, this place is hands down the best in Kingston.

“Acceptable sushi”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2014

I ordered take-out as I was staying at a nearby hotel.

The sushi was fine -- not wonderful, not terrible. The edamame was under-salted to my taste.

The main issue I had was that I was charged $1 more for the edamame than the price listed on the restaurant's website. I didn't notice until I got back to my hotel and $1 wasn't enough to return to the restaurant.

“Fresh sashimi”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2014

I tried the sashimi lunch which was very fresh and delicious and a bowl of rice for $10. Not sure if this is a good deal in the Kingston area, but possibly overpriced when compared to Toronto. All things considered, the lunch was good, as was the service.

“sima shoesi”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2014

Great central location on Princess St. in downtown Kingston.
Nice that tea is served while waiting and is no additional charge. Great specials. Service was good. Priced right. Reasonable. The only problem was that we noticed on the way out that the very nice waitress used the same cloth to wipe the floor and then used it to wipe a table.  Oops. Needed to call owner but haven't had the time. Sorry to make it public but hygiene IS  important. Since I wont be eating off the table, and I am hoping this is a one-off, we would 'consider' returning. Too bad that happened though because the food really was good.
