Love this place! Value for the food is off the charts, and the food itself is incredible. Service is quick and always friendly. Great place to go with 5 or 6 friends and share a bunch of things.

Food was delicious! Atmosphere was a bit distracting; Music type and loud volume made it difficult to have a conversation. The service was good except at the end of the meal, we had to remind the waitress to bring us tea that we had ordered. We did not receive the customary frozen grape at the end of the meal...Do you still do that?

Was there two years ago. Was upscale restaurant. Guess the neighbourhood does not support the high end Japanese. So now the price is very affordable. Good

Amazing like always with great service; we brought our family from California here for dinner and they have been to plenty of Michelin-star restaurants and they were impressed with Kingyo’s food and service.

Foods were very good and our server was treated us very nice. But it was kinda very pricey even each dishes are very small portions. In addition, it was the too noisy atmosphere in the restaurant. I prefer more quiet atmosphere. So I don't recommend this place to people who want to enjoy conversations themselves. It would be nice if there are independent rooms. Overall, it could be better if those issues are improved.

The food was a perfect balance of inventive and traditional– delicate, delicious and umami out the ying yang. Our fave was the garlic tuna tataki w/ ponzu jelly. The only problem was they missed a dish we had ordered, the stone bowl seafood and sea urchin don, which we had to re-order. When it came, it seemed rushed and the stone bowl wasn't as hot as it should have been. Otherwise, a great spot, worth a visit, and many returns.

Really enjoyed our experience at Kingyo. We were seated in an area that was not too loud, but anywhere in the middle of the restaurant I think would have been very loud and that would have detracted from the experience. Having said all of that, the service and food was outstanding.

This is my first and probably only food/restaurant review of any restaurant. I am only reviewing this because the service and food at Kingyo is consistently exceptional. They do everything to make your visit memorable. We are regulars here and this time we invited our friends who had not dined there before. They were blown away. We ate with young children and even the children's plate was delicious. I absolutely love this restaurant.

Although I find the prices a bit much, the quality of the food is exceptional. If you have never been to Japan to experienced the level of service there, visit Kingyo for a taste. Their hospitality is on par with fine Tokyo dining. I look forward to visiting Kingyo again.

Almost like a secret restaurant, you would never know how paradigm-shatteringly good the food is from the outside. It's also surprisingly affordable, especially when you factor in all the sake.. Great food! Great staff and a really fun spot to go with friends!

The server was very attentive to our needs. It was my friends birthday and we were a group of 10 people. It was organized and food was great. They brought the cake out in time and they didn’t sing which we told them not to. Everything was great and they also made the settling of bill organized. Overall it was a great experience for a big party.

Toronto’s most authentic izakaya experiences

This Cabbagetown spot reflects a traditionally minded izakaya inspired by classic Japanese cuisine. Featuring a variety of fresh fish, meat, and vegetables, each dish is built of a few simple items that accumulate into exquisite flavours. Diced beef tenderloin served with grated daikon, shisho leaf, and Japanese steak sauce is a superb dish that balances light and heavy on the palette. With its dark wood and bamboo, Kingyo replicates the comfort and luxury of eating in Japan’s urban centres.
