|Leather Chewy Cold Handroll Combo - Ninki Sushi|
I had a busy day at work and it was OPPRESSIVELY hot out so I asked H to pick a place on the 'Path'. The underground network connecting most of Toronto's downtown core. She picked Ninki but then retracted after reading some of the bad reviews. She sent a couple more suggestions over but they were either too far for this busy day and or 'off the Path'. We caved in under the circumstances and my stubbornness about not wanting to sweat in my work clothes and chose Ninki.
Unfortunately, H mapped the destination whilst walking down instead of reading our email thread and went to the other Ninki kiddie corner from the one on King Street. Since I get lost in the Path very easily, H came down to me. Too bad. I really should have gone to her. She had already had time to sit and read the menu and we discovered that even though they are the SAME chain, SAME menu, ACROSS the street from one another, the one I was waiting at had prices 20-30% higher. H had already picked the Hand Roll Combo and was shocked to see the price differential. If we hadn't already ordered our drinks, we would have walked out. Grrrrrrr.

I may always be up for Sushi but I will never be up for Ninki again.
Service: indifferent and slow
Ambiance: as loud as a train station
Kid friendly: NO WAY, barely enough room for my purse which sat in my lap.
