Ratings & Reviews - Kingyo Izakaya

How would you rate this business?
January 11, 2020

We came with friends from Tokyo last summer and they were impressed so we returned in 2020. Wonderfully balanced food, excellent vegetarian menu, fun, great service and ambience. Flight of sake is very nice, 1oz highball drinks are skimpy and seem dated - how about 1.5 oz Kingyo? We’ll definitely be back!

As usual, a fine outing. This is my favourite izakaya in Toronto and has been for many years now, and it's the only place currently that has truly authentic tonkatsu.

Food took too long to come. All dishes came scattered and we waited 20 mins for the stone bowl rice and udon to come while other dishes were finished.

Kingyo is our go to place for Izakaya style food with a gourmet kick. From the Ramnen to the fish to the beef tongue it is always excellent.

AMAZING food and service. We were served by a few different people and they were all very polite and attentive. The food was great-we all ordered the PRICE FIXE and each item was plated so wonderfully and tasted delicious. I would HIGHLY recommend this restaurant. We'll be back again for sure!

First time there, and loved it! Fabulous food and wonderful vibe. Everything was delicious, but the hamachi sashimi, agedashi tofu, shishito peppers and the Nagoya style Dan Dan noodles were out of this world!

I love Kingyo! My first experience was in Vancouver. A favourite for my friend and I who lived in the neighbourhood. Love the Toronto version. Missed the black cod though, but I assume it wasn't in season...

Toronto’s most authentic izakaya experiences

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.
