Welcome to Ninki

Downtown Toronto’s preferred destination for authentic Japanese cuisine for over fifteen years.

The owner began the journey that culminated Toronto’s finest Japanese restaurant over thirty years ago. He began by studying the art of cooking Tepanyaki style and later added Washoku and Sushi preparation to his skills.

Pursuing his passion for Japanese culture and cuisine as well as his love for preparing and sharing great food, he opened the first Ninki Sushi & Sake Lounge in downtown Toronto’s financial district on Adelaide Street in the Summer of 2003. The restaurant was an instant hit with lunch crowds often lining up in the street – even during the Winter.

After receiving notice that their building had been sold and was to be torn down, a second Ninki store was opened in Scotia Tower on the concourse level. By the time their original location was torn down in 2012, the Scotia Tower restaurant was well established with a loyal core of regulars and they never missed a beat.

Since then, Ninki Sushi & Sake Lounge has become one of the premier locations in downtown Toronto for fine dining and authentic Japanese cuisine. Our loyal customers love to bring family, friends, and visitors to enjoy the Ninki experience with them and those visitors often become regulars themselves.

Many companies and groups have made Ninki Sushi & Sake Lounge a regular tradition for parties and special events. Our catering services have also become a popular way to memorialize special events. As tastes change and grow, Ninki Sushi & Sake Lounge has striven to continue to meet their customers’ needs and desires. We have added an express takeout counter as well as a sake bar that stocks one of the most extensive selections of Japanese whiskeys in Toronto.

There are few things more rewarding than watching people come together to socialize and enjoy good food. Ninki Sushi & Sake Lounge is a place where this happens every day.
