If you want authentic Japanese izakaya cuisine, or just Japanese food in general, come to kingyo. Don't bother with miku or yasu, just come to kingyo. Order the beef tongue on hot stone and the uni shooters and the uni hot stone pot. Just come here and make your life better

Everything was just ok. The air conditioning wasn’t working properly and it was an extremely hot day. Someone did come to apologize. We felt rushed through our meal - we had the pre fixe menu. The different dishes arrived quickly one after the other and even before we were finished each dish, the wait staff kept asking if we were finished when it should have been obvious that we were not. The waiter did try to explain the various items but she spoke so fast we had to keep asking her to repeat each time. I visited Kingyo in Vancouver and was impressed with the food and the service so we thought we would try the one in Toronto. I was disappointed.

We had an excellent meal and attentive service. Some fish portions were quite small but we filled up on rice and noodles. Four of us shared two flights of chilled sake and staff thoughtfully divided it for us so we weren’t drinking from the same glasses. Will definitely be back - the restaurant is a bit dark (but with some fun decor elements) - would be especially cozy in fall and winter.

Taste awesome but a small portion most of the dishes. You might feel too expensive... Floor staffs and servers are very kind. But they were coming to us and ask clear the table too many times. (like every 5 mins..) We felt pressure... I wish I could enjoy more our dinner time.

Restaurant was very nicely decorated and had a great ambience. More spacing between guest tables would have been nicer though. It felt a little crowded. Service was fantastic. Everyone was extremely friendly and food was served in a timely fashion. Food was hot, fresh, and had great flavour. Definitely better than your average restaurant!

We were extremely pleased with service first and foremost. We had finished our dinner, and left the restaurant. We had left something within one of the napkins, and went back for it. The waiter and waitress’ went out of their way to retrieve the item, meaning went through the garbage cans. 5 stars for service indefinitely. Food was very fresh and delicious as well, one of our favourite japanese restaurants in the city.

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.
