I was very thoroughly impressed with Ki. Figuring it's location in the middle of the financial district would dumb down the quality of the food, and once the first platter arrived, I immediately realized that my stereotype was completely unfounded. Great food with excellent fusion twists, superb service, and pricing that matches this quality. I would most certainly revisit Ki.

Birthday Dinner at Ki
We celebrated our daughter's 23rd birthday at Ki - she was given her choice of location in this gorgeous space and chose a private room by a water feature. Service was attentive, but not overbearing. There were seven of us and we shared a tempura shrimp appie, a big selection of nigiri, miso soup and a unique beef roll. All was delish, well prepared and beautifully presented, and the fish was fresh. The crowning touch was when the manager brought over a birthday card and an origami box filled with chocolates for our daughter. Sweet.

My night in the city....
Don't go to TO often but when I do I expect to dine at KI for an amazing flavour experience. The food is always way above my expectations......menu offers a great variety of hot and cold dishes with very appealing presentation on the plate. Servers know their stuff and are very helpful in making suggestions for further ordering for the table.
Ambiance is lovely however I feel it is a tad too dark.
A few of my favorites are the butterfish nigiri, spicey salmon rolls and we had the hot pork ribs ......unbelievable!!! Hopefully you will allow the server to take you on a wonderul journey of dining at KI. You can never be disappointed.
Overall, great!!! I will be back. If you have not gone yet...GO, you will love it!

Amazing food, our serving
Amazing food, our serving was fantastic, made great suggestions !!

Never fails to please me
This is by far my favourite restaurant in Toronto for Sushi! The sushi is always amazing!! The cold plates never fail to amaze me either, i've tried a handful of the cold dishes and each one I try is absolutely delicious! Each time my partner and I dine at Ki we are offered and amuse bouche which are constantly packed with flavour for such a small bite!
I will be returning to Ki and will continue to bring my friends!

Best Sushi in Town!
Delicious sushi, great sake wine list and awesome service!
It was also very kids friendly if your kids enjoy sushi, of course!
6/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
thanks for a special evening!
We enjoyed a wonderful graduation celebration at Ki. The reception was warm, the restaurant is elegant. The grad was presented with a card, which was a nice touch! Service was excellent and very professional. The food is fantastic!
6/16/2013 4:00:00 PM
AWesome place.... one of my
AWesome place.... one of my favourite lunch spots. The Butterfish Roll is undescribly good!!!!!
6/18/2013 4:00:00 PM
PORTIONS ARE HUGE!
If you are ordering sushi a la carte---underorder, because the sushi sizes are very generous...and of course delicious.
Pricey, but you get what you pay for.
6/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
My friend and I were celebrating both our birthdays. Our server made wonderful food recommendations, and anticipated the mood of the celebration perfectly and brought in the manager to celebrate our special occasion. Great evening out.
6/20/2013 4:00:00 PM
Very few and far between do I get blown away by service, however Ki most definitely went above and beyond. Hand written card congratulating us on our engagement was a magical touch. Exceeded our expecrations, best service we've ever received.
6/26/2013 4:00:00 PM
With it being my first time at Ki, I was pleasantly surprised with the food, ambiance and service. Everyone in the restaurant was hospitable - from the front desk to the waiter to the restaurant manager. I was there for a birthday dinner with a group of 10 and barely mentioned my birthday to the woman at the front desk. At the end of the evening, we received delicious square chocolates that arrived in perfectly sized red boxes, along with a hand written birthday card from Ki. Great personal touch!
7/2/2013 4:00:00 PM
I had a booked at table for 2 but I was seated beside a group that was having a good time. I asked to be moved and there was no issue. Out server was ver professional. Nattentive but not intrusive. Food was good and well presented.i

Robin our waitress took extra good care of my fiancee and I.

lunching at Ki
Great interior design, large patio. Excellent list of Sake options. Food was fresh and presented beautifully.
The only thing I didn't enjoy was the cooked salmon roll....it just doesn't seem to fit with the rest of the food in the Bento box.and is something I would never want to eat again. The choice of a gluten free menu is brilliant and gave me dining partner the best choice she's had in ages.
7/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
I highly recommend Ki!!! The restaurant itself is beautifully designed/decorated - modern style with nice clean lines, the use of wood helps the restaurant keep its modern look but makes it warm and inviting. It's upscale but not pretentious. Classy but inviting.
The food is fantastic. I have been there 3 times and have never been disappointed. Some of the best sushi I have ever had. The prices are very reasonable as well.
The service is fantastic - attentive but not cloying or overbearing. Quality and services. I'll be happy to return!
7/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
My husband and I treat our daughter to a special dinner each year after a good report card. For the past few years she has chosen Ki and it never disappoints.
The service was outstanding ... Jonathan was tending our table and he referenced an earlier visit and knew our daughter enjoyed the Hamachi dish, we were extremely impressed. Ki gets major points for attention to detail. As always dinner was fresh, artistically displayed and of the highest quality. The homemade boxed white chocolate truffles at the end of the evening were a nice touch.
We'll return soon!

Best Sushi in Toronto
A must stop for the sushi crazed person while downtown! Great service and amazing food! Everything is fresh!
8/2/2013 12:00:00 AM
A must everything we are in Toronto
Bravo....again. Never miss the mark. We had another couple join us and they loved Ki. They have excellent raw and cooked so try it.
8/2/2013 12:00:00 AM
This was my second time at Ki and like the first it was outstanding the service was best service I've had in awhile, food was delicious reminds me of NYC quality. Defiantly a must eat restaurant if ur in TO!
8/3/2013 12:00:00 AM
excellent service and we were
excellent service and we were there celebrating a friend's birthday and they added some small touches to remember.
8/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
Simply The Best
My niece going off to university has a peanut allergy. The staff at Ki went above and beyond to make her experience brilliant. The chef made a special roll for her and she fell in love with other delicious items she would have never tried on the menu. At the end of the night the manager, gave her chocolates and a note that wished her good luck in her university endeavour. That simple gesture is what makes this place a Toronto gem.
8/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great food, great service.
Great food, great service. I called ahead to ask for a quieter booth for my lunch meeting and I was really surprised to get a booth that was completely out of the way, but still had great service. I would definitely recommend this restaurant to anyone.
8/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
we've been twice now - both times with groups - service was superb all meals arrive at the same time - with multiple waiters. Food was beautifully presented and delicious.
8/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
One place I highky recommend in Toronto for dinner. The service and food have consistently surpassed my expectations for 7 years.
8/31/2013 12:00:00 AM
We were here for a late dinner and our server made some excellent recommendations and he was very attentive. That made a great experience as everything he recommended was tasty!
9/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
Our experience at Ki was nothing short of fantastic. Excellent and very attentive service, always knew when to come by and when to stay away. Very attractive, well mannered and well dressed staff. Excellent pacing for food delivery, and top grade Sushi. Will definitely be back in the future!
10/5/2013 12:00:00 AM
Always enjoy going to Ki; great food, convenient location and friendly staff - what's not to love?!
10/9/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great place for business lunch !
It's a great place to organize your business lunch meetings. Just ask for a quiet corner.
10/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
out of town travel
Our group was traveling and everything was very nice, waiter was very helpful and entertaining
10/18/2013 5:00:00 PM
So I walk by ki everyday and finally went in. Apparently it is known for the over 30 men of the financial district
Trying to pick up girls... But aside from that it was well designed the sushi bar and dining area were fantastic. My waiters were a bit odd.. He actually had an ocd moment and reached iver my martini to grab and refold my napkin. But I'll credit this to him personally
Not the restaurant. I was warmly greeted and accomodated. I ate sushi and shared with my date we loved it.
If you want to meet a hot older man on a wednesday before 8pm.. Go sit in the bar. If you want to catch up with girlfriends and eat
Sit at the sushibar. And romance and privavy can be found in the upper dining area.
10/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
Spot on Japanese
Definitely a great spot for sushi whether for lunch or dinner. Have visited multiple times and have never been disappointed. Great service and presentation. Will be returning.
10/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
always love Ki
You go here for the awesome sushi, and all the rest follows. Reasonable wine list, fun cocktails and a vibrant bar - or a quiet space away. Service is always excellent.
10/29/2013 5:00:00 PM
Expensive, but delicious!
Best enjoyed on an expense account, Ki is the financial district's finest sushi restaurant polished to deliver a five star experience. In a busy lunch crowd there was a comfortable buzz, never intruding on our table's conversation. Service was attentive but not overbearing, and the food options were customized to our choice. And the food was phenomenal: fresh, tasty, and beautifully presented. And then the bill: $100 before tip for two people drinking water with their food. So, a special treat, but not one that I'll be able to afford often!
10/31/2013 12:00:00 AM
good ambiance, good energy and great service. Had some terrific rolls and overall it was a fabulous dining experience
10/31/2013 12:00:00 AM
Good sushi and lively!
Lively on Thursday nights, although much quieter on weekend when bankers away.
11/6/2013 4:00:00 PM
Perfect Japanese bar/restaurant
I loved the place's decor, atmosphere and friendly staff. The food was great, the night for my friend's birthday was perfect.
11/14/2013 4:00:00 PM
Fabulous modern Japanese restaurant. Excellent food with superb service that was not intrusive (hard to accomplish).
11/14/2013 4:00:00 PM
Service and forod were both excellent. Sushi was phenomenal and very interesting selections were offered. Ask about a special chefs plate if you like surprised and want to try some sushi rolls that may not be on the menu.
11/15/2013 4:00:00 PM
We went as a family of 4 and loved this restaurant. Friendly staff, and outstanding food. Very unique items on the menu. Presentation was excellent. We would return here again as we barely touched any of the numerous items on the menu.
11/21/2013 4:00:00 PM
The food was fabulous as is expected, and the service was beyond belief.
11/25/2013 4:00:00 PM
wonderful time as always
This will probably be my 3rd review of Ki, but I can't say enough. My boyfriend introduced me to Ki on our first Valentines day as a couple and we go there every year now for his birthday. It's always a great time.
We take to sitting at the bar and watching the chefs make the rolls- sometimes that's how we choose our dishes!
The food is delish! The fish is fresh and the presentation clean and minimalist-- great way to showcase the food.
Everyone at Ki is wonderful. We always feel so welcome which is nice in general and especially so when you're celebrating any occasion.
Just go try it. :)
12/1/2013 4:00:00 PM
Always a winner
My first visit to Ki in the winter time and I was not disappointed. It was busier than I would have expected for a Tuesday evening and the atmosphere was really great. The food never disappoints and the wine list is quite impressive. Will definitely return for a leisurely drink among friends.
12/2/2013 4:00:00 PM
Another exceptional experience
Slick modern decor with an Asian flair sets the tone of a 'hip' eve. A trio of enthusiastic (but unpolished) young hostesses genuinely welcome you. We are seated at the sushi bar near the private rooms - lovely! - high back chairs are a comfortable delight. Sake flight was a stellar experience, tailored by the gracious sake sommelier. Standouts were the (a la carte) sashimi (truly fresh) and the Spider Roll. Creme brulee capped out a superb eve. As his introduction to Japanese food - my dinner guest was impressed. Note-the place was PACKED by 7pm (Wednesday) so reservations are advised. Patrons are mostly conservative, older suits with egos - so ignore the looks of disdain if your attire has a bit of stylish flair. Definitely will return
12/3/2013 4:00:00 PM
Ki is a great restaurant but this past visit they totally outdid themselves. From start to finish the service was exceptional. The food was top notch as well. Thanks so much!
10/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
A must when in downtown Toronto
The Bistro shrimp keeps me coming back - nothing like anywhere!
