The service is very slow; we were the only table there and we waited about one hour for our brunch order. The food did not come at the same time for the whole table and some people's food was cold. The bathroom was very dirty as well. I will not go back there, total disappointments.

When you have your own family, the opportunities for going out to lunch with a sibling are few and precious. So it was, that spending a day with my brother from Calgary, who loves sushi, we cam to be seated at Kinki at 1 o'clock on a quiet Wednesday afternoon. The fact there was only one table occupied should have... More

Arrived at 7:00 pm as a part of a group of 20 kids and parents to have dinner. Nice atmosphere but we were told immediately menu had changed and we could only order a small selection of the food in the menu. Ordered food at 7:20. At 9:00 the waiter came by again to reconfirm our order from almost two... More

Love their drinks there, the decor of the restaurant is pretty great too! Ive gone there for the last two Canada Days because they've always had space for us. Its underrated, but I like it that way!!

Restaurant was dead. 2 tables. Waited over an hour for salad to arrive and sushi. Brutal. Never again. Glasses filthy. Service terrible.

This was much before last February so I don't know if there was any change of management since. However, I thought I shouldn't let this horrible experience left unheard. It was during dinner time on a weekend with a group of eight. My bill came up to $45 so I gave $60 in $20's. The waitress didn't even bother to... More

I've never written a bad review before, but our experience tonight certainly deserves one. We bought a Groupon for Kinki and I was more than excited to try this place after looking at the menu online...Everything sounded so good. We got there, and we were seated against the front window. Huge draft, but fine, won't hold that against them. We... More

I came into Kinki on a lazy Saturday afternoon. The resto was chill, beer was cold, and overall a very nice afternoon weekend vibe. My server, Quinn, was very friendly, funny and has a great sense of humour. It's a worthwhile afternoon stopover for a pint and sushi.

Stopped in at Kinki for a quick bite recently and had a great experience. Delicious spicy caesar and sushi roll, excellent service from Quinn. I'll be back!

Went with a Groupon after Christmas for lunch .. only patrons the whole hour and a half we were there. Why were we there an hour and a half? Not for the ambiance, not for the food, and for sure not for the service. The one server was so laid back he disappeared for fifteen minutes at a time.. after... More
