"I got a salmon and shrimp platter and a mocktail, both of which were very good."
"It took over an hour for 12 pieces of maki to come to our table."
"Overpriced. Green tea and a bowl of edamame cost me 20 bucks."

This is by far (in my opinion) the best sushi restaurant in Ottawa. I'm in love with the ring of fire and hot Latino rolls. The menu has changed recently but still amazing. Staff is very knowledgable and friendly and can recommend anything to anyone. They have DJs on Tuesday and weekends to make your experience that more memorable. Would definitely recommend this place to friends and family!

Very impressed with the service and food here. I was recommended by a friend and was not disappointed. They got our food out fast even though it was a busy time of day, and everything tasted superb. I got a salmon and shrimp platter and a mocktail, both of which were very good. Very unique atmosphere and I will be back.

My friends and I were traveling to Ottawa for the first time and we decided to try Kinki. I actually found the restaurant while browsing online and I came across their menu. They seemed to have very delicious entries, so I figured that we should give it a try. We loved how the restaurant is not your typical sushi place. It actually looks like a night club inside and was the perfect place to start off our summer bash! We ordered sushi and drinks. We were very impressed with the quality of the food and the drinks. It all tasted great! We will be back again while on our trip!

Wonderful food and service. I can't speak highly enough about this place, it was the highlight of my trip. There was such a variety of food on the menu that it was difficult deciding what to get, but I ended up with the Yolo Chicken Naan-wich and I highly recommend it. Very unlike anything I've ever had before, in the best possible way. Staff was friendly, service was good, and prices were reasonable. I hope to be able to go back again!

No matter where we are in the world, my kids want sushi. They love it, and so do we so it's a win-win. We decided to try out Kinki's since we were in Ottawa on a trip, and it was recommended to us. We all got Sushi Lunch's and then had to try some ice cream, which was equally delicious. Definitely satisfied with our meal, and look forward to going back.

One of my friends suggested me this Kinki Lounge Restaurant in Byward Market. This was the first time we went to that restaurant, we heard a lot of positive reviews regarding the food and ambience of this restaurant. With no doubts, it was an amazing experience to dine there and that’s the reason, I am here writing a review for the restaurant. We just enjoyed each and every moment from the moment we entered inside. The ambience was just amazingly designed to attract a whole lot of attention towards it. A notch full of service was very well presented and served to us by all the waiters there. There was a pleasant music played by live musicians and dancers dancing over the pinch of music were just elegant to watch. It gave us a very pleasing experience for all of us. And then comes the food, we were 8 of us and so we ordered a huge piles of food. Everything arrived just in time, served hot to everyone based on everyone’s interest. Kinki-er- Burger Which I ordered was just yummy and Omg pasta was another delicious dish I had over there. We all thoroughly enjoyed the food for another 1 hour with pleasing music and dance. It was very well worth the price we paid for all the dishes and services they provided to us. I am sure to visit this restaurant again with my partner for sure as soon as possible. A very lively experience, it’s a big Yes! If you are looking forward to visit this restaurant.

I recently went with her husband on their honeymoon and come to you in the restaurant. Loved the cozy home atmosphere and service, great menu, especially liked a very beautiful setting. About your restaurant, I received a very good impression.

The food was good. Our server was nice. It took over an hour for 12 pieces of maki to come to our table. Not 12 servings. There was only 2 of us. It really wasn't busy from the amount of empty tables either. It was quite often that we could see 4 staff members just standing around talking while we were waiting for service. The washrooms, both men and womens, were disgusting. Again, when staff is just standing around, there's no excuse for the state the washrooms were in. Our server rarely visited us so when she did we made sure we had orders ready because we knew it was going to be a long wait before she got around to seeing us again. When we were finished our meal we sat there for 20 minutes until I got up and asked how to pay which prompted the waitress to bring over our bill which was incorrect. We had to wait an additional 7 minutes for the corrected bill to be brought over. The dishes we had to use were very poorly cleaned or just plain dirty. I really didn't like how the music kept getting noticeably louder to the point where my voice was straining while talking to my wife across the table. I will never return to this resturaunt. A side note is that they do not accept debit and credit card is only done through the non-PCI Compliant way where they take your card and swipe it. No chip and pin support.
