Our server was very good. She was very polite, discreet and professional. She knew precisely how to approach us/interrupt us (we were heavily engaged in business discussions) to ensure we placed our orders ahead of the lunch rush as we had indicated we only had an hour.

The tempera is excellent, the batter is tasty and light. However the sushi is just okay, not amazing for the price. It did not taste super fresh. We ordered the blackened cod and it smelled fishy, like it was not super fresh. Perhaps we are too picky, but I've had far better maki rolls elsewhere with fresher ingredients and more flavourful combinations. I did not enjoy the bitter taste of the spider roll and the spicy salmon (compared to other spicy salmon rolls) was quite boring and blah.

Our waiter was fantastic and after finding out that we had never been there before he made some outstanding recommendations. The food was all delish but not inexpensive. Dinner for 2 with a drink and dessert was over $100.00. The restaurant is quite massive and we were the first to be sat in a room with larger dinner parties set up. It started off quiet and then got very loud.
I would love to go again and try some different items on the menu. I am sure I can enjoy my dinner for less and still walk away happy!

Our server was very kind and pleasant; great sense of humour and down to earth. Above all, she was very knowledge of the menu and spoke highly of her management.

Food was delicious, beautifully presented, and the staff always made sure we had fresh plates and our water glasses were always filled.

One of the best meals I've had in a long time!

This is not suitable for a special evening out with friends. This is definitely an 'after work' business bar and restaurant. Loud music, sports television. Noise and the high ceilings make you feel like you are at the airport waiting for a flight.

We went for an early evening meal before an NHL Leafs playoff game. Fun-filled restaurant, perfect for the occasion. All the staff were attentive, friendly and fun. I have been to Ki many times for the food and it did not disappoint, always fresh and interesting creations. Too many choices! Wish I could go every day and try everything!

We were 4 for dinner. We asked for a quiet table and were directed to a small private dining room. We loved the privacy. The waitress was amazing and very helpful with the menu and excellent suggestions. The food and beverages were outstanding.

Thank you.

One of my go-to spots in Toronto. Food and service is always excellent. There was a couple errors with the food when we went last time (brought the wrong dish and another wasn't rang through) however they went above and behind to correct the mistake by taking them off the bill and giving us free dessert, as well as the manager personally came to apologize.

Our server had a birthday party plus us, a couple, and had a hard time delivering good service. I felt neglected. Also considering that we ordered share plates, there were often 10+ minutes when we had no food and couldn't order new plates because our server was no where to be found. The food itself was not authentic in the least. Food quality felt like a chain restaurant, over spiced and over rated. Would not recommend this even to people who have no taste. Service was offensively bad.

Stopped in to suss out this restaurant a few days before as I was planning a lovely dinner with my husband and daughter. I was very excited as the menu looked fantastic.
I couldn't have been more disappointed. Most of the food was below average in taste with small portions for a very high prices. 3 strikes. The waiter had a very haughty air which always is a turn off. To top off a dinner without any redeeming qualities, the waiter rarely came to check on us despite having a lot of busing help or to check to see if we liked the food. Dirty dishes sat on the table for long periods of time and we actually stood for five minutes with our coats on waiting for him to come so we could get the bill. For the first time ever, I didn't leave any tip; unheard of for me as I was a waiter for many years when I was in school. I was so disappointed in the entire evening.
