“Good Modern Japanese Concept”
Reviewed January 13, 2014

Hotel not good decided to brave the cold at minus 23c and find this Japanese Restaurant did not book, able to accommodate us in a cosy corner. The Tempura was right, few get it right,
meat was very tasty, price not cheap, but no different to what we expect to pay in the UK or Europe really nice local wine, great evening on a very cold night. service excellent.
would certainly be back on my next trip to Toronto.

“Enjoyed it, but pricey”
Reviewed December 30, 2013

My husband and I stopped in here tonight on recommendation from a friend. We shared the edamame and spicy tuna roll and enjoyed both very much. While we enjoyed the experience, the prices were a bit too high for what we planned to spend for the evening and so we didn't proceed with a full meal. I think it would be great for a special occasion meal.

“This place is a wow every time”
Reviewed December 27, 2013 via mobile

We went back here from a while ago, as it was quite memorable.
The service is tops! Awesome knowledgeable servers.
People don't seem to understand why Sushi goes don't get the modern sushi concept. Ki is a modern take on sushi and as a sushi buff I think it is one of the more successful.
The price is not for the faint hearted, it is pricey, however it seem to be justified when you get to the table until you leave.
The fish is amazing, I recommend the maple one and the jalapeño one! Like I said not traditional!

Go here!

“What a rip off”
Reviewed December 15, 2013

This restaurant is far from being authentic . . Food fully looks like it's been Americanized . . The sushi is bland . . The soup and half of the dishes they brought out tasted very salty . . Money isn't an issue but people do expect to pay for what they deserve . . And honestly our bill went up to 4300$ (group of 18 people) and we will never go back there again . . If you want good sushi . . Don't ever go here for it . . The only good thing here was their alcohol and small appetizers and their service was amazing.

“Unique menu, good service, vibrant setting”
Reviewed December 15, 2013

Some business associates and I gathered for dinner on a pre-Christmas Thursday and it was LOUD! Super busy and noisy as a pre-hockey crowd gathered for drinks and celebration of the season. I get that. We were kindly moved to a more booth-like setting and despite our distance from the prep area and kitchen, I don't think our service suffered at all. The menu is varied and interesting, the ordering can be a little complicated but was beautifully explained. We saw and tried many dishes never seen before and a few familiar faves - like sushi pizza - were presented in a unique and artful fashion; the dishes and rolls were imaginative and unexpected. Ki is hip, upscale and pricey. We'll return, but we'll perhaps stay away from the holiday season parties. (Lunch is also available, and with an equally creative and satisfying menu).
