The restaurant is very fancy and somewhat intimate but the sushi rolls are nothing special. I ordered some of the specialty rolls at 15 and 20 dollars each but I was really underwhelmed. Not only were the rolls too small but, they tasted quite bland as well. I have ate far better sushi at less established and cheaper sushi restaurants.... More

Came here in mid-December with some colleagues after work. We were all in the mood for some beer/wine and to share appetizers rather than order meals. I am typically not the biggest sushi fan, but will admit the sushi here was quite good. Lots of original choices. We all ordered different appetizers to share. I liked them all. In particular...

I stopped in for an impromptu late lunch. The bar snacks menu was simple. Try the KFC chicken. All the sushi and sashimi recommendations were spot on. The service was great. I will definitely return the next time I'm back in Calgary.

I've had my fair share of sushi and this was just plain underwhelming. Nothing exceptional, very expensive ($7 miso soup!) and pretty run-of-the-mill menu. Had high hopes, but I don't plan to return. Tried the salmon roll, dragon roll, miso and tempura. Sapporo was good though!

Ki Modern is a nice upscale looking restaurant serving interesting fusion style Japanese food. If you're looking for a twist of dishes, then you can try this place however if you're looking for value dishes this probably not the place for you. We ordered vegetable tempura, dynamite roll, teriyaki chicken and sable fish. The vegetable tempura was delicious - light... More

I went there a few times recently at lunch time. I had various sashimis, sushis and rolls and they were all delicious. I recommend specifically the oil/butter fish (called escolar) and their hamachi with jalapeño. I went once with a group and the waiter just brought us many different plates, from sushis to beef, chicken skewers and veggies. If you... More

We were staying at the Westin hotel which is next door to this restaurant and needed a place for a light meal and drink. We sat in the lounge area and were happy to hear that it was Happy Hour with good prices on wine and appies. I am vegetarian and unfortunately there was nothing on the appies list that... More

I've walked by Ki many times as it's by the Downtown Westin and lots of office towers. Despite its large size, I rarely see anyone eating there. The menu looked good, so worth a shot. Service was fast, menu had traditional Japanese fare, plus sushi and sashimi, although everything I ordered had some type of sauce or ingredient that made... More

I went there at lunch time and was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the sushis and service received. The waitress offered us delicious hamachi as a taster. It was very fresh, served as sashimi (and well cut) w a jalapeño pepper on top. Just the perfect balance of spicy whilst still tasting the fish! All the sashimi we had... More
