Sushi
From the creator of MF Sushi, Alex and Chris Kinjo, has been a pioneer for Japanese cuisine since its inception in 2000. The brothers opened their first concept, MF Sushi, in Midtown Atlanta on Ponce de Leon Ave. The restaurant's success led to the opening of MF Sushi-Buckhead and MF Room expanding their footprint to Houston where they continue to garner celebrated recognition. The creativity behind MF Sushi birthed brilliant dishes, from the beautifully hand-crafted appetizers to the famous MF Signature Nigiri plates, to rolls packed with a myriad of flavors as well as Robata Grill options where your fresh food is grilled at your table using the traditional Japanese binchotan. The restaurant's perennial popularity and devoted following are a tribute to the Kinjo brothers that their own spin on traditional sushi partnered with the contemporary, flirtatious and simply stunning design of the restaurant space is unrivaled.

    I made a reservation for 2 with plans to catch up with a friend who recently moved to Atlanta. She loves sushi and lives near the interlock so I recommended Kinjo room. Upon arrival we were seated, then 5 minutes later we were asked to move. After we moved we were not served. A couple that came in after us was seated and served drinks while no one even said hello to us. After 20 minutes of being ignored we decided to leave. Before leaving we asked to speak with the manager. The manager apologized and told my friend to just make another reservation. A sub-par response. Why would we bother returning after being treated like second-class citizens? I haven’t felt this disrespected in a long time. The owner and manager should be ashamed. After leaving we went to the restaurant at LOA and had a much friendlier experience. Someone actually greeted us immediately and took our order at LOA. This is unfortunate because I have dined at Kinjo, but the level of service tonight was embarrassing to me. My friend said she would never visit again. I may not visit again either after being completely ignored without remorse.

    The ambiance at the Kinjo Room can’t be beat, and for a date-night spot, it is ideal. The cocktails—though pricey—were delicious and well-crafted. The kampachi nigiri, likewise was fresh. However, the up charge for the saké was ridiculous; the crispy tuna roll was overcooked (there’s crispy, and then there’s cooked to the point of ruining the integrity of the rice); and the Osaka compared to Houston’s, was lackluster. This restaurant, for its price, didn’t fully deliver unfortunately; however, I would revisit for a cocktail and to enjoy the atmosphere.

    Kinjo Room was a great experience and definitely worth trying or repeating for special occasions. The small restaurant has a very warm, cozy vibe with the right mix of background music, lighting levels, and decor. We visited for my friend's birthday so this was a special occasion event. The food was spectacular, very well presented, and often very creative. We had the tuna tasting, and the chef's signature nigiri menu, and the baked lobster appetizer. All of it was fantastic. The biggest flavor surprise came from the Waygu beef aburi, which was just out of this world. Please don't leave without getting this! This is a pricey place, and the only quibble is that the cocktails, while great, seem to be over priced. The food was also expensive but not surprising for this level of quality.

    Was excited to try this upscale looking spot- it was very nice but a bit out of place in the Interlocken. The sushi roll menu was small, no salad, no soup mentioned. The lobster box roll was good but all 3 rolls were lacking in flavor. I wouldn’t go back at this price point.

    @kinjoroom 3/5 Ambience 5/5 Food 2/5 Service 4/5 This was my second time attending kinjo room. The first time the food was much better. The best thing they have is the lobster appetizer. Food - The Quality of food was not to my standards and as a person who has grown up on sushi you can truly tell when owners choose to cut quality corners. I started out with my usual old fashion while my date tried a custom cocktail. I ordered three rolls shrimp tempura, eel and lobster cake. I feel like they attempted to do a rendition of @eightsushi LANGOUSTINE roll and it was a complete fail. They charge $27 dollars for a less than mediocre tasting roll with barely any site of lobster. With these prices and quality it’s giving money grab. Maybe they were having a bad day… I felt this way about MF sushi and they have the same owner.. The quality is not consistent like 8 @eightsushi Ambience-it gives a speakeasy vibe. the walls are painted black with gold accents and beautiful flowers. The sections are cozy and intimate. I love the bar and decor it’s suitable for a date for one or a small party. Service- kind and accommodating.

    The food, the atmosphere, the cocktails, the service were all impeccable. Legit some of the best cocktails I've ever had. You never taste simple syrup and all the cocktails are beautiful, well balanced, and have flavor profiles I've never experienced before. The papi chili was my favorite All of the staff were extremely kind and had such positive energy throughout my whole time there. It made the experience that much better. The sushi is flown in from Japan and you can taste it Overall I think this is the perfect spot for a date night or girls night out

However, considering the selection inside the perimeter, heck Georgia, this is definitely a cool spot to add to the list.

    Item price is super overpriced! And the quality of the seafood is not very fresh, I’d rather go for omakase with the this money. We had a special roll which is the soft shell crab roll I have never seen lettuce in a sushi roll. It basically taste like Korean Kimbap and they call that sushi roll??? Lol not authentic at all. Drinks were not bad but still overpriced. The only good thing was our server was very nice. Would never go back.
