Stood at the bar for a few minutes waiting to be acknowledged. Was. Waited several more minutes to try and order. They only had 1 available beer on tap. Settled for water. Had to wait for that too. With so many choices in the market, I won't be coming here again.

Nice outside terrasse. Tempura shrimp appetizer was just right and spiced mayo was very good. Chicken curry pasta was average. Good curry taste but chicken was sparse and not very tender. Best was s'mores ice cream dessert. 3 giant marshmallows with graham crackers and chocolate hips and two large ice cream scoops. Great for sharing. Too much for one. Wine... More

with its seductive playroom and tantalizing menu, kinki is a great date place;) The porkbelly sandwich was decadent and the Sushi was well presented... We went for lunch but dinner and later it's what this place's ambiance matches best.

Finally managed to get out to this place to hear some friends perform on the outdoor patio (Not sure what inside looks like). The place has a nice summer vibe nestlied in between two buildings but depending on where you sit it is a little tricky to sit and eat, The service was good once we managed to get noticed.... More

Not many patrons having lunch at 12:30 pm.....found this odd. Food took a while, seemed like they were just opening while we were there. My burger was rather dry, not impressive. To top it off there was no debit machine just credit cards......we were not told till payment time. I would not go back.

The place as a different look...pretty ordinary look now. Almost no clients in the restaurant ?? We took the Chef's special Moriawase platter plus another... More

And an other 30 minutes to complete our order. One of our serves did not know the menu at all, and he... More

I already left a review on Yelp, but I'll copy it here as well so that everyone knows what kind of establishment this is. DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY AT THIS RESTAURANT. Kinki shot for the moon and landed in the seventh circle of culinary hell, complete with revolting food and extremely rude, entitled management. My family and I had... More
