The Merchant Kitchen
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.

All of the food we ordered was excellent and beautifully presented! The only thing disappointing was our dessert. We loved the cauliflower, bowls, Korean fried chicken and yuca fries. We had the sponge cake dessert and it was dry and not very tasty.
Great food great service lovely ambience.
Highly Recommended :)
Went with a group of friends and had an outstanding evening. The server put together a mix of appetizers and mains to suit the group and the food was excellent. Highlights were the cauliflower appetizer and the fried chicken. A few of their featured cocktails were a miss but the food and service made up for it. Highly recommended for a larger group.
Incredible flavours and absolutely outstanding service. Cocktails were magical. Cannot wait to take all my friends here.
Had visitors from Nova Scotia, they loved the KFC!
Interesting menu options. Friendly and engaging staff. Prompt and attentive service. We enjoyed our dining experience very much. Thank you.
Table was ready when we arrived, very crowded due to Jets game. Service was efficient, dishes came out at separate times, last was the fried rice. Food was excellent,
Every item was delicious. No bad choices . The tuna was incredible. The one drawback is the noise level, makes it hard to hear conversations.
Our server was lovely, but the food was dreadful. Having eaten there many times before, we ordered our favourite items, but we’re very disappointed. It was tasteless. The restaurant was VERY loud & packed in tight - no barriers or distancing.
The menu had items removed from it and was even more limited than it was the time I had been here previously.
Our party had a number of people served well before others without even acknowledging it. At one point I assumed my food was just not coming out, but the server was not even around to ask her (and we were sitting right next to the pass, so if my food was coming out with the rest she could have been there to acknowledge it). It did finally came out about 5 minutes after the majority of the people at our table had be served. And the servers did my day a word—which makes me assume that this is a normal thing. I really had a moment where I thought I was not going to get fed. And eating while the majority of your group has already eaten, or vice versa, is uncomfortable.
Food and service was amazing with the exception of the quinoa salad. Everything else was extremely flavourful.
Great that menu keeps changing to keep food fresh with ideas Missed having items that I enjoyed on earlier visits
However latest event menu was lacking Will not book again at least not in the near future
We enjoyed everything. The Dan Dan Noodles were, in particular, very good. The service was attentive, prompt and friendly. We’ll be back.
Really cool place and the food was amazing
Great service. Even moved our table to we could be warmer.
Loved the food and service
ALWAYS love dining here - the servers are so friendly (thank you Hannah!) and the service/food/cocktails topnotch!
The food and drinks, service, etc were all great. It is a very loud restaurant so it's a bit hard to converse with the people you're with.
Service was great. Restaurant was loud. Food was delicious.
Fantastic food. The menu is well thought out. Cauliflower and DanDan Noodles. Get them by the dozens
Tasty but super salty. Seated beside two families with young kids melting down. Server wasn’t terribly attentive.
The food was not as well prepared as previous suppers in the past. The Mexican corn was a bowl full of canned corn vs a grilled cob of corn. Not rushing back.
Everything was great! Food was tasty and service was very good.
Great street style eats with excellent cocktails. Overall a classy yet casual setting and experience. Would return with a group.
We had a wonderful night, good timing and the hot was served hot and tasty. Super food salad really need a little salt and acid, otherwise spot on.
We felt safe, the service was good and the food was delicious!
We will go back! Delicious food, great vibe. Delicious cocktails.
The food, service, and atmosphere were excellent! The only thing that wasn’t up to par was how small the table was for two people. Not very much arm room and the table was very wobbly. No complaints about the restaurant itself.
Love the food, dislike the noise level. Service was good.
Generally the food and service were good. One dish was listed as a large plate and seemed much more appetizer size. That at was disappointing and took away from the rest of the experience which was very good
Service was not the best…
Really good food, great staff, lovely place to dine
Great service. The Korean chicken was superb!
Menu is very small. Some items that were on the website, and previous visit, were no longer available. Some items completely different than previous visits, same name, but completely different presentation.
Great atmosphere and good food. Very lively energy.
My meal never came.
Food was incredible but it was so loud hard to enjoy dinner
Delicious food, good service. Was confused by the screen in the dining room playing a western movie. Have the corn. Amazing.
Food is very good
Noise level very loud!
