Trendy & Overpriced

Atmosphere is trendy, good location as it is close to business district and ACC. Portions were very small and extremely expensive. We had to chase down our waitress all the time as she didn't come by ever, not even to give us the bill, she's lucky we didnt' walk out after waiting for 40 min just for the bill. Most of us went to the drive-thru on the way home as we were still hungry despite spending $120 per person. Go for the atmosphere, not the food and dont' go hungry!

Lots of Fun

Going to Ki is like a night out in itself. The food is great, the staff is professional and knowledgeable, and the atmosphere is energetic yet comfortable. The rock shrimp is my favorite item on the menu, although I've had most everything else. The food presentation is good, and the items are all perfect for sharing, even the steaks. The bartenders make a perfect dirty vodka martini, although it does take a while sometimes...they're very busy, so don't order at the last minute. That just adds to the experience though, if they weren't busy, it wouldn't be nearly as fun!

With such high praise I thought Ki was the perfect get away for a romantic dinner for two. I wish that was the case. We arrived at 7:30 The sun was setting outside inside it was pitch midnight, it was so dark it was hard to see my wife. The small table lights barely through off enough light to find our utensils. We joked that it was so dark to hide what our food really looked like. We ordered Seasonal Veggie Tempura, Dynamite makimonos, kit bee maki, saikyo-marinated & broiled Black Cod with rapini, grilled Canadian AAA Tenderloin served with garlic ponzu sauce. The maki was okay, but the tempura shrimp in the Dynamite was cold and soggy. The Veggies were okay although I think a few pieces were overdone but I can't say for sure because it was so dark. The main's were a big disappointment. The cod was almost inedible, the fish being fatty and tasteless, not what you would expect from black cod. The tenderloin was tough which is odd since it's usually a tender cut and all I could taste was the garlic from the Ponzu sauce. I won't be going back. I should note however that the servers were very attentive and polite.

I am not a big sushi fan, but this place has so much more to offer! The atmosphere is amazing - go early and mingle with the "just left the office crowd"... Make sure you make a reservation! Even though it is very busy, we still received stellar service and attention. The waiters know their stuff! This is a great place to go if only 2 of you or with a crowd.

One of the best restaurants I've ever been to. My husband is a chef, and he was so impressed by the quality of the food. The black cod is unbelievably good! I cannot wait to go back.

Hip Atmosphere, Best Sushi

If sushi is your thing, then this is definitely the place to eat. The fusion approach to this traditional Japanese cuisine is definitely the best I've ever had. Ki manages to meld the best aspects of Western and European flavors while staying true to a Japanese style of culinary delight. Our waitress was personable and friendly, each sampling was perfectly timed and the decor was sexy and inviting.

Great atmosphere very lively and a great lighting effect made it viewable without being too bright. Went for a birthday and the server was so catering and knew in detail the flavour and pairing of the foods with the drinks to a "T". The food was so delicious and fresh tasting the drinks are brought to you in two parts with your alcohol and ice in one glass and your mixer in a small carafe. Definietly will be going back had a great time.

Drink sweet cosmopolitans from these Toronto cocktail bars

Drink sweet cosmopolitans from these Toronto cocktail bars

The suit-and-tie crowd imbibes in happy hour drinks and Asian fusion food at this downtown sushi lounge. Fittingly, the bar’s signature Kyushu Cosmo puts an Asian twist on the classic martini — the sweet drink is made with Tanaka Moonlight shochu (a Japanese distilled beverage) mixed with Moonstone plum sake, tart cranberry and fresh lime with cherry dust.
