ki modern japanese + bar

ki restaurant is truly one of the best sushi places I have ever been to, and the best in Toronto!

ki (n. pref. japanese) pure; undiluted; raw

At ki, dishes are meant to be shared, and the restaurant offers a fresh take on the Japanese style of leisurely eating and drinking with friends. ki is located in the heart of Toronto's business district and is a downtown hot-spot. Packed daily with regulars and newcommers, there is a reason why; the food! The food is truly delicious, not only is their sushi amazing but the hot and cold dishes along with the appetizers are just great! ki has really different dishes and sushi rolls which add a little life to a basic Japanese menu. The restaurant is quite large, with a "restaurant" area where you can watch the sushi chefs, a bar/lounge with high top tables and a very sleek outdoor patio. The ambiance is great, a very cool vibe!

Here are some of the delicious treats ki has to offer and one's that are not to be missed...

Rock Shrimp Tempura with spicy wasabi-garlic cream dip
Tossed Edamame with seven-spice chili
Ki Spider Maki: soft shell crab, mango, perilla leaves, chives
Spicy Tuna Maki: maguro tuna, scallions, sriracha mayo, sesame seeds
Spicy Avocado Maki: with pineapple, tomato, chives, wrapped in cucumber + topped with wasabi-relish
B.C. Tuna + Chives Maki: with kimchee lime sauce + sesame seeds 
saikyo-marinated + broiled Black Cod with rapini, salmon roe + orange drizzle
grilled Short Ribs marinated with asian pear-soya and sesame seeds
Toro Tower topped with crispy shallots + garlic ponzu dressing

The lychee martinis are also a great choice for drink and the cheeschake trio is a perfectly light and elegant dessert!  Enjoy!!
