“Started out great, but seems to be declining”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 7, 2013

Starting going to Kirei about a year ago. During the first two visits the quality and presentation of the sashimi was just awesome. The menu had some really awesome things. There are never many people there, which is a bit surprising since the quality was so good.

During subsequent visits however, the presentation quality has declined a bit. The quality of the food remains good and there are more people coming, which is a good thing, but the plate presentation no longer creates the "wow factor" of a year ago. Perhaps a change in chefs, and there is a new menu, so perhaps that is part of the issue.

The service has also become a bit less personal, but still okay.

Still good food for sure, but too bad it's not as great as it was. Hopefully as more people come the quality will get better.

“Enjoyable”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 6, 2013

Kirei Sushi and Bar moved into my neighborhood about a year ago (the corner of Church St.and Adelaide Street East) before they arrived there area had a limited amount of good Sushi/Japanese Restaurants. Kirei is by far excellent. The fish is lovely and of excellent quality and the staff is friendly, helpful and they remember you when you come back (and I think you will)... I find their prices for dishes on par with other places of their quality and it's always well prepared. It even has a little outside Patio.
