About Kinka Family

Founded in 2009, KINKA FAMILY was born from our passion to revolutionize Japanese hospitality experiences and to bring original and flavourful Japanese food to the world. Today, we’re recognized as Canada’s largest Japanese restaurant brand, operating a diverse portfolio of restaurants and cafés around the world.

KINKA IZAKAYA is our version of a Japanese pub, famed for its energetic, exciting, and bustling atmosphere. KINTON RAMEN was one of the first ramen shops to open in Toronto and has now become a household name in Canada. JaBistro is our take on a sophisticated sushi and sashimi bistro, while KINTORI YAKITORI is a cozy, tapas-style snack bar. We also created NEO COFFEE BAR, a modern Japanese bakery and café, and KINKA Sushi Bar Izakaya, a cozy and casual snack bar located in Tokyo. Each brand is unique in its concept to bring guests on a unique culinary journey unlike any other.

As we look ahead, our standards for excellence in our food and service continue to be our guiding vision so that we can give our guests the best Japanese food experience.
