Great atmosphere, great food, and wonderful staff! Our server is was a new employee (second day on the job) and he handled everything so well, we could overhear the manager instructing him how to improve his service. Kudos to both the manager and new employee as everything was very well executed and we appreciate that Kinki Lounge really puts emphasis on great service!

Drinks were professional quality. Sushi rolls were best I’ve had, in Ottawa; great flavour, excellent combinations. And the Saki Bombs sank perfectly! All and all a great time!

Wev were there on a Saturday afternoon, and it wasn't very busy. I wonder why because it was excellent. For appetizers we had their Garlic edemame, and they are so goood. We also had fish tacos, you get two, and they could be a meal themselves. The best fish taco I ever had. Main course was sushi, we had two rolls - both very good.

Food and service I don't really have a complaint as I am a regular there. However 1 Friday night with some friends 8 of us, there was a girl named Roxanne Tarot Reader/Psychic. We talked did some readings etc. Turns she's a con and fraud no psychic ability she manipulated my friend out of a lot money. Telling her what she wanted to hear about her relationship leading her on, giving her false hope and then Roxanne used her condition as a sob story etc. She was ashamed of it and we didn't find out right away. It happened over couple of months. Because of this we will never return to the restaurant only because the Lounge should be more vigilante as to who they hire. As well it would be an awful reminder. This has pissed off us off and we pitched in to help our friend but could not come up with all the money.

Food and atmosphere were great. Wish our server was a little more engaged with our table and more knowledgeable of the menu especially with all the different kinds of sushi.

Would defiantly visit again though in the summer as we were told there was a fantastic patio.

Braving the cold weather, we made it out to Kinki last night to celebrate new years.
And we were are very happy we did so. The table d'hotes we ordered were quite good, and so were the staff and music.

Although service was good, the food was well below par for what I would expect at KINKI. I haven’t been there in years, but they used to be well known for their sushi (among a wide array of Asian Fusion). They used to have their sushi counter right there in the dining room, Yesterday my husband & I each ordered the Osaka lunch, which came with 8 assorted pieces of Nigiri sushi, as well as a salad. (choice was soup or salad; soup was bacon potato, which is good under normal circumstances, but alongside sushi? Strange choice).
We also ordered 3 pieces of the Hokkaido (Scallop) Sashimi. They were good, although a little fishy (should have had a cleaner taste), and they had been marinated, which we had never encountered before. Of the 8 pieces of Nigiri, 2 were Surimi (artificial crab stick), at which we were shocked to receive. I can understand they have it to put in California rolls (which I never order…), but to receive it in my sushi assortment? It is not sushi (!). 2/8 = 25%! So ¼ of my sushi was fake & processed. Of the remaining 6 pieces, 3 of those were salmon... Some assortment(!) Everything tasted “fresh” (not quality, just, not bad) but the serving sizes were so incredibly small. Usually a Nigiri sushi is 2 bites for me; no way I could fit all my my mouth. But these pieces of fish were small, and the mounds of rice were small. Just popped them in my mouth with ease like they were nothing. Most of the fish was cut super thin, less than ½ cm thick. Some pieces of salmon were so thin it resembled Smoked Salmon. Salad was good. But the sushi was a huge fail.
Thank God I used a Groupon. Very disappointed at how far downhill KINKI has gone.
