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.

We have been at this Sushi restaurant +- 4 years ago, it was the most delicious sushi place, expensive but very very good. Went back on July 2nd with the 2 kids, they adore sushis. 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

Came here for a late night drink and snack. We were served by two servers who both were not aware that the other were serving us. It took about 30 minutes until we were able to order food. 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

I was recently at Kinki with a large group: loved the sushi and ambiance; service was great. Would recommend the specialty sushi rolls: delicious

Went to Kinki last night for dinner. The mojitos we started with were very good, and our server was very pleasant. And then it all went downhill. Ordered bao buns for an appetizer. Waited. Waited. Our server came to take our main order. Still no buns. Then our sushi arrived. Apparently the kitchen forgot about our appetizer, so she went... More

I went in there because I thought it was a different place. I brought a group of friends from out of town... i was very skeptical until the food came! The soup was fantastic! Everyone really enjoyed the food that they ordered. Had a night club feel, there was a dj setting up (at 1:00 in the afternoon) but the... More

This place has taken a turn for the worst. A small group (5) of us went this past Sunday and had a variety of items. Needless to say, we left disappointed. The food took a long time to get to us despite not having many people eating at the time we went. The waiter was apologetic and told us that... More
