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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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

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.
