Not normally a sushi person but will go back to try mor of the sushi.

The staff was friendly, helpful, and knowledgeable. Just a wonderful evening

The service was not very good - everything was was delayed, the octopus Nicoise was inedible because the octopus was over cookoked and when I told the server, nothing was done to redox the problem (replace or refund the item)
The y made us eat out in the rain and we had to ask them to move an umbrella closer to our table to get shelter

Excellent service, would have been nice to have had the choice of eating indoors as it was windy & chilly outside as the evening progressed. Waiter was superb & helpful. Good terrace distancing between tables, maybe have heat lamps by tables to help with the chilly air later in the evening?

We went for a birthday dinner. The staff were great. We were greeted immediately. Seated quickly, we did have reservations so this helps. This is the first week back for staff. So some of them have to shake the "rust out". Some are going to be very new to the industry. We tried the "Chef tasting menu" with Waygu beef. This was an experience. I would like to see the Tasting Menu have a choice of saki or wine pairing. For a complete experience. The cost was where I expected it to be.

The service is excellent. One of the waitresses noticed that my partner poured some cocktail on her clothes. She offered a cup of soda water and a towel for her to clean it.

Nice and comfortable patio set-up slightly off the main King St which is nice. Overall food taste and presentation was pretty good, however we felt the portion was small considering the price point.
The interior decor looks very nice, will consider to try again when the city moves to stage 3.

Minami was lovely - it was secluded from the bustle of King Street but still close enough so if you'd like to go out somewhere after, it's just right around the corner! The food was fantastic - great quality. My table got the wild mushroom, otoro sushi, salmon and yellowtail oshi sushi and wagyu sushi. It was one of the best sushi places I've ever visited in the world! We also ordered the Cool Tea #7 for the table and it was a lovely drink (reminded me of a Long Island Iced Tea). Our server (unfortunately I didn't remember his name) was super knowledgable and attentive and we felt extremely well taken care of. A must-visit if you're ever in the area and craving for some good quality Japanese food!

We loved everything about Minami. Service, ambience is outstanding but the food was the real star. 4 of us had four different dishes and we all agreed that every morsel was perfection! Definitely will be back. Lunch menu is excellent value too.
