EXCITING. FLAVOURFUL. SHARED.

The Merchant Kitchen is an idea conceptualized by travel and adventure. Honouring the traditional ingredients, flavours, and techniques of Asia and Latin America, while incorporating the freshest local ingredients possible is our mantra.

Exploring cities and towns along the equator, tasting their food carts, and visiting the local markets have allowed us to bring that to the table an experience that enables guests to escape routine and enjoy flavours with friends and family.

    Food wasn’t great. Wouldn’t go back. Oily and too sweet.

    Unfortunately we didn’t have a great experience. When we finally received service the server didn’t say hello or welcome us at all. Instead we got a “what do you want to drink”. The drinks came very slowly. The food was absolutely amazing but our conversations were difficult because the noise in the restaurant was deafening. The booth we sat at made some of our guests quite uncomfortable as they tried to squeeze themselves in to the right space between the table and the booth. I’ll certainly order take out but I won’t be back in person.

    The Korean fried chicken was delicious. So was the crab dip appetizer. Very noisy- but it was before a Jets game.

    Went pre-playoff game at Jets stadium and was happy to see everyone in the building, including staff, wearing white. Great energy and enthusiasm from our server. Yummy food!

    My second visit was as good as the first. Great service and food. The craft cocktails are amazing. Try the Gato Grande. Tasty. Open concept kitchen was cool to see. It gets legit loud as the place fills up but the overall experience was worth it. We’ll be back again!

    Overall, great experience and we will be back when the patio opens. Gave a 4 as the Dan Dan noodles were a bit on the dry side. Had them before and were always good. Otherwise, great as always.

    Tasty tacos, smaller portions. The cocktail menu looked very interesting, though I did not try any this time around. Kind, attentive staff. Very noisy, but as I found out later, this was likely due to crowds before an evening concert across the street at Canada Life Place.
