Diner Reviews
  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "The food was amazing, I had no idea such good things could be made with edamame beans! (i.e. cake, puree, etc...)"

  • "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!!"

  • "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."

  • "Food was great, service was fast and friendly...I'd bring customers to Ki anytime!"

  • "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."

  • "Restaurant screwed up on an order by delivering 2 orders, and without telling us, charged for both orders."

  • "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. "

  • " 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."

  • "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!!!!!"

  • "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. "

  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "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
  • "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
  • "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!"

  • "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."

  • "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
  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "Spectacular sushi that is perfect for sharing with friends or business associates. The Sake Sommelier recommended great sake! Not inexpensive, but well worth it for special occasions."

  • "I've been there a few times but I was totally disappointed this time. We ordered bottled water and ice tea for drinks and asked to waitress to fix the lunch for two. Nothing is really special and the food is just enough for two of us, but the bill is over $100 for lunch of 2 without any drinks. What a rip off! I am pretty sure if we ordered from the manual, for the same food we would not pay that much. She took advantage of our trust."

  • "We went for my husbands birthday on March 1. Apostle and his staff were amazing! The service was outstanding right from the time we entered the front door. We asked for a few of our favourite items, but then let Taylor, our server decide the rest. We had a group of 8, ranging from 23 - 75 years of age. Taylor was so thorough describing the food, and the choices she made were the best! Everyone in the party thought the food was excellent. There was not one item on the table the everyone did not rave about. All the staff were so attentive to my husband and the rest of the party. Thank-you Ki for making such a memorable evening for my family! We were SO impressed, everyone is still talking about it!"

  • "Really was hard to decide what to get. Server was knowledgeable and was able to make solid recommendation and was very courteous. Had the seared scallops, was fantastic. Had the kiwi tuna, it was unique and interesting... Not sure I would get again until I tried other stuff on menu Had the pork belly, would definitely try again! You are paying for far above average service and ambiance, at least that's how I saw it. I would come again on special occasion or for romantic evening."
