  • "I've eaten at Ki in Toronto many time and had hoped for a similar positive experience. While the food was as excellent as I expected the service was very poor. The waitress, who never introduced herself, was slow, in-attentive and almost rude. I would NOT recommend this place based on this experience."

  • "We went there for dinner on Saturday. The waiter was friendly and helpful. He helped us in making the right choice of food and drink. We thoroughly enjoyed the food, drink and overall experience. I want to compliment the chef and KI kitchen."

  • "Sorry to say but the Server wasn't good. She wasn't friendly, she forgot part of our order (when we asked her for the rest of our order she said- "I saw it go somewhere- I think I saw it go to another table- do you still want it?" and I felt uncomfortable and disgusted b/c after I told her I was a vegan and I don't eat any animal products she said- " all the animals are dead here so it's ok to eat them" she also when on the say - " it's ok to eat animals". It's true it is ok for some people to eat animals But if someone tells you they don't eat animals- you should just leave it at that. Thank you!"

  • "I eat a Ki whenever I'm in town for business. I'm always had outstanding service and I recommend this restaurant highly. Also of note- I'm vegan and they always come up with something amazing to work for my diet. Well done Ki!"
    Dined on 7/16/2014
  • "The restaurant is beautifully decorated and for the amount of people it seats, was very quiet so you can enjoy the company you are with. The food was so very tasty. We had the tempura shrimp to start, YUMMY! The service was excellent, the menu was organized well! Can't say enough abou this restaurant. I will definitely be going back!"
    Dined on 7/16/2014
  • "The food was delicious but it took over 20 mins to get drinks and what was supposed to be a one hour lunch took 2 hours. I do not reccomend this restaurant if you're on a schedule."

  • "This place is nice, classy. I like the idea that they can put together a plate to share for as long as you all like the same things and indicate what you don't like to have. However, this restaurant charges too much. A cup of miso soup was $6. Out total bill was $200+ tip for 4 people. All we had was 20 pieces of sashimi & 28 pieces of the nigiri to share and a miso soup per person. In my opinion this pricing is way too much so we all decided we are no longer eating here. Not recommended if you are on a budget. Good to try one time and just eat mac and cheese till next pay cheque."

  • "Unbelievable selection of sake ... complete with knowledgeable bar staff that really know their stuff."
    Dined on 6/20/2014
  • "Credit to its name, Ki really is "Modern" Japanese. While they do have some more traditional offerings, it's the newer interpretations and contemporary combinations that really make it shine."
    Dined on 6/16/2014
  • "The food was amazing, I had no idea such good things could be made with edamame beans! (i.e. cake, puree, etc...)"
    Dined on 6/10/2014
  • "I go to Ki for work lunches about once every two weeks and I am never dissappointed! Everyting is amazing from the look of the restaurant to the service to the food! Not to mention you can sit up at the sushi bar and watch them make your food !! Not your tradition "sushi" place, but that's not what they are trying to be (I assume) ... it is japanese FOOD, not just sushi. TRY THIS RESTAURANT!!"

  • "Food was great, service was fast and friendly...I'd bring customers to Ki anytime!"
    Dined on 5/28/2014
  • "Food was excellent and service started out great. When we were finished eating, our server seemed to vanish. Not a big deal...just made for a rather long lunch."
    Dined on 5/27/2014
  • "Food was nothing special but overpriced and too small in portion. Service was alright - server was busy at other tables since it was peak lunch time, which is understandable. I got a hot towel before I had my meal so that was good. I would probably not go back though since I've been to so many better sushi places in Calgary and Ki is not worth the money."
    Dined on 5/23/2014
  • "I love coming to Ki. Their food and service is fantastic. So nice to get a top-notch meal at lunch without a long wait - can be in and out in an hour."
    Dined on 5/14/2014
  • "Great service and beautiful environment. Great for a date, a special occasion or a meeting with valued partners. Food is very good, shrimp tempura was the best we have tried in Calgary so far. Sushi were good, but there are less fancy places where sushi are as good and twice cheaper. So if you are just looking for a good food at a better price, go somewhere else, but if you are looking for a place for a significant event, Ki is great for that. "

  • "Great food and service as always. Worth paying the extra for."

  • "We have gone many times to Ki. The food is amazing, fresh, and presented so beautifully. "
    Dined on 5/2/2014
  • " Had the Shashimi Salad twice in a week, was the perfect amount and after ordering a Roll to go with that it was the perfect size meal. .. I only put service as Good because one of the Servers who came by to deliver the food was kinda of rude and snotty."
    Dined on 4/30/2014
  • "I have be going to this restaurant since it opened in 2011 and it consistently has great quality and outstanding service. I now just like to order the daily sushi bento box and let the chef surprise me with their choice of selections. The bento box is reasonably priced and is always very fresh and tasty. If you are hungry I would recommend supplementing the bento box either with their miso soup or a couple additional sushi selections. "

  • "We usually go to Koto sushi but decided to try this place for a change. The decorations inside were very nice and modern, but that is about the only good thing I can say about this place. We were seated and re-seated, and then it took forever to get food and a bill afterwards, the waitress seemed confused and not very familiar with bill splitting features, or she wasn't listening well. The menu wasn't as great either. But the worst thing was the pricing - very expensive, totally overpriced!!!!!"
    Dined on 4/24/2014
  • "There is much better value out there for sushi in Calgary. I found the spicy tuna roll boring and the rice a bit mushy. For the price I would expect more. Great service."
    Dined on 4/22/2014
  • "food was prepared exactly to regards to me allergies"
    Dined on 4/19/2014
  • "Really very good food, fresh, tasty, as it should be, just perfect. Service was very good and the place has a great ambiance. The price in the end was also pretty OK."
    Dined on 4/16/2014
  • "Restaurant screwed up on an order by delivering 2 orders, and without telling us, charged for both orders."
    Dined on 4/16/2014
  • "Ordered sushi and sashimi. Food was quite good, rolls were creative and different. Quite pricey, although the decor is very nice, the location is convenient for downtown business lunches and the food is good (decent sushi in Calgary tends to be more expensive than many other Canadian cities)."
    Dined on 4/16/2014
  • "I had a great time, the food was great. I can say it's the best sushi I've ever tried and the service is great too!. This place is a must for the japanese-food-lovers."
    Dined on 4/15/2014
  • "Poor service almost ruined our lunch. At a place like Ki you don't expect to have to ask if your food is ready! We waited almost an hour for our food until I "flagged" the waiter down and asked if it was ready....to which he replied " let me check" and came back right away with our lunch....a little too much of a coincidence....which is why we felt forgotten!"
    Dined on 4/14/2014
  • "Blown away by the food, the service and the whole experience! I ate just about everything on the cold plates menu!!!"
    Dined on 4/4/2014
  • "Modern take on Japanese food. It's different; not your typical Japanese restaurant. Service is outstanding. I only have there for lunch with business associates therefore it is good atmosphere for business discussion. Noise level is moderate."
    Dined on 4/2/2014
  • "Good selection, but quite pricey for what is served. Food was okay, not great, I had tofu/eggplant that was drenched in sauce and also quite small for the price. Vibe is good and service was good. Good location for north side of downtown."
    Dined on 4/1/2014
  • "This is a fantastic sushi restaurant with great service. The food is amazing. However, it is quite expensive. Lunch for 2 without drinks was $115 including tip."
    Dined on 3/26/2014
  • "We found our first visit to Ki to be quite disappointing. First, there was very little energy in the bar, where we started, and then in the dining room. On a Saturday night, we expected more. I asked the bartender for a particular brand of bourbon and he told he was out. Not a big deal. But then we found dinner to be very ordinary once we were seated. And the table we were seated at had a burnt out bulb in the light fixture above us. Beautiful space, but pay attention to the details. The tempura vegetables were great, but the sushi wasn't. In particular, the sushi with beets and squid tasted only of the rice that surrounded it. We have better sushi options that are closer to home. Not the same great decor of Ki but better food."
    Dined on 3/22/2014
  • "They have quite an extensive menu of both food and drinks. They were accommodating in the number of pieces that are order and an make up combinations of sushi and dishes accordingly."
