    Food and service was good as usual! It was very quiet as we went before 5pm, which was great

    The service was comically bad, but the food was so good it didn’t even matter. Really unique dishes, lots of surprises.

    We celebrate our anniversary every year at Kingyo. Food and service are always good. They offered a free desert and everything was well prepared.

    Kingyo is a really nice place to celebrate anything or even to go alone when you want to offer you some good quality time. Their plates are generous and joyful to taste with fresh fishes and efficient service. I had great time celebrating my birthday here in this unique atmosphere which makes me think of the true heart of Japan culture. I hope Kingyo will welcome me again in the future with the same energy and passion as they did when I came here. A nice memory to share with friends for sure!

    I absolutely love Kingyo and its affiliated restaurants. The food is always delicious, and they're so welcoming of people celebrating different occasions such as birthdays or anniversaries. The only downside to dining here is the lack of parking (even available pay parking is scarce!), but that's 100% the City's fault and doesn't reflect on the restaurant itself.

    The best Japanese Izakaya in north America. Food was quite similar with real Japanese one. Staff was nice.

    Amazing food. The truffle carbonara udon and tan tan ramen are a must. We also ordered the hot stone Wagyu. Anything Wagyu beef is delicious, but for the portion you get for the price it's a little disappointing considering you want more of it. The service was great. The decor and ambiance is unique - it's like you've stumbled in a Japanese tavern. This restaurant is always full for dinners, so I highly recommend making reservations.
