We were in town for our kids lacrosse tournament. A little pricey for the family but the service was excellent and the food was spectacular!

Great food and service. Shared the shrimp/scallops, tempura, spicy tuna rolls, dynamite rolls, and teriyaki beef rolls. A lot more food than it looked, more than enough for two. Will return!

Lots of flavours to share in a sleek atmosphere.

Ask for a booth for peace and quiet or sit at the sushi bar for more of a vibe.

Very good service. Me & my wife went to celebrate our marriage anniversary and we had a great time. The Sushi were delicious. The best part was desert. I will recommend the desert as a must. The manager also gave us a card to wish us in our anniversary.
Thanks Team Ki for making our dinner awesome!

I have visited here on numerous occasions for business with good service. Visited here for leisure and the service was significantly poorer.

Good Service should be consistent and not based on the perceived clientele

Good food as always

Family was visiting out of town during a major snow storm in Toronto. How nice it was to arrive for our reservations into a warm, glowing atmosphere seated at a lovely, big booth. We had excellent service and the food was, as usual, wonderful. We love this place.

After work, Ki is loud. Get through the bar and into the seated dining area and you will be away from the din. The menu is long and involved, but don’t worry because the wait staff is fully prepared to help you navigate this somewhat difficult road. I know it’s madness to go to a sushi restaurant when 2 of the 3 of us don’t like raw flesh, but so be it. Our waiter’s work was cut out for him but he was up for it and recommended that we start with the Bistro Shrimp Tempura (aka popcorn shrimp) and the Dynamite Makimonos. The shrimp was a large bowl of lightly coated beautifully cooked shrimp. I can’t stress this enough: the shrimp was so perfectly cooked that I was tempted to pull the bowl away from my coworkers and scarf down the entire order. The wasabi garlic cream dip was full of surprises; one sojourn was mild and the next had my nose exploding in spectacular fashion. The sushi rolls were delicious and also served with a wasabi mayo that knocked our collective socks off.

We rolled up our sleeves and settled in to a couple of mains: Grilled Short Ribs marinated in an Asian pear soya. Tender, somewhat salty, but bursting with flavor that had each of us wide-eyed and moaning. Next up was the Saikyo Miso-Marinated Black Cod with ikura and fennel-orange sauce. This was a fish that was cooked with such pampering and affection that it landed on our table in a state of bliss. Tender and juicy to the point that our competing chopsticks were in a duel to the death. My only complaint was that the dish wasn’t big enough. Still hungry? No worries, because our waiter suggested the sweet potato wedges and it came with… you guessed it, wasabi mayo! It was a big bowl of carbs that took care of any remaining hunger. We all sat back with smiles on our faces. Three women who normally would only look this happy after chocolate or sex. But nope, it was Ki! Enjoy! You won’t be disappointed.

There was something quite odd about the Dynamite roll that I ordered- there was some sort of butter/lard type substance on it. Disappointed as this is usually a very reliable restaurant.

Great food, great ambiance, fantastic server. Went there with my wife for lunch just before Christmas. It was our first time and there were some many interesting items on the menu so we let our server pick for us. Every dish she brought out was delicious. She checked in with us a few time to make sure we that we still wanted more. At one point we were brought a dish that was meant for another table. Our server didn't charge us for that dish.

All-in it cost us about $100 including two glasses of wine. Even if we'd had to pay for the extra dish it might have been $115. Still very good value.

Everything you could ask for: great food, and great service.

Went to Ki before a concert at the Sony Center, which is an easy walk. The sake was good, the spicy tuna and spicy salmon on rice cakes were very good, wagyu was not up to expectations, but still good, and the shrimp tempura was positively excellent.

Went for a last minute dinner at KI Saturday evening. We were greeted promptly and sat at a booth. The server advised us on a few questions and provided recommendations for what to get. The food came quickly and was amazing! Will be going back for more!

Terrible service. Place was practically empty and service for drinks and order taking was very slow. Had to get up from table to ask waitress to take dessert order. We asked for assistance in amount of food to order. We should have been advised to order more dishes for 4 people for dinner. She said to keep a menu in case we wanted to order more food but never came back to ask if we wanted additional items. I am still hungry which is disappointing as food tasted delicious just would have liked more.

Sushi fish was fresh and well-prepared. Ambience was much more Western than I am used to in a Japanese restaurant, including furniture, dishes, wait staff, etc. It was a bit too Western for me. Perhaps because I lived 9 years of my life in Japan.
