Sushi Kai on Eglinton Closed?

Anyone bought Groupon for Sushi Kai? Went today and it has a sign saying restaurant is closed - phone # also says not valid.!

Many restaurants in that area are gone. Golden Griddle, Filthy McNasty's, Spring Rolls...just to name a few.

Dont think groupon had anything to do with it closing as it had a groupon for years. probably had more to do with all the constant construction in that area.
SPOOOOOOOOOOOONN!!!!...

Lol - this place was on every Groupon, Wagjag, Groupbuy ever created for at least 6 years+. They would never refuse any offer lol. I have no idea how they ever stayed in business.

Not the best sushi or Japanese don around but def. extremely good value paying $15 for 40 worth of food.
Going to miss this place.

They do have take out or delivery orders, I think that was how they survive. I doubt they can survive if 100% of their customers using Groupon. lol

So the restaurant was getting approx. $7.50 after Groupon's cut for every $40 charge on the menu, and I would say that those Groupons accounted for 90% of their clientele. Two possibilities: (A) Money laundering (B) Ewwww... raw fish at that price?

For $40, I usually order a bowl of chicken teriyaki don, one bento box, 2 specialty rolls to share with my wife. Good deal for $15 + tax + tips.
We always wait until they have the extra 20% off or 5$ off 20 to make it $15. Usually they are at $20.

For most merchants offering Groupon, they try to get more traffic to their dine in and hopefully customers order more than what their voucher have or order some additional drinks or alcohol on the side of their meals to make profit from.


Atmosphere is important and is lacking at sushi kai. They put a 27" LCD TV on an ugly TV stand (not mounted on wall) in the middle of the restaurant. We don't even do that in our homes now, let alone a "restaurant".

The place wasn't special or anything, but definitely good value. Can't complain much at that price.
