Modern Peruvian & Latin Cuisine
Please note there is a 2 hour seating in effect weekends
It was excellent, Hasan in the bar was amazing service, though I have to mentioned that he had to cover for some lack of attention from one of the waitress, FOOD WAS Absolutely Great!!
First, our party of 4 were sat at a large round table that could have easily fit 6-7, with the noise level, we felt we would be yelling over he noise to talk. We asked if we could wait for one of the regular 4 tops but were told NO. We thought about leaving but decided on a Friday night it might be hard to get in somewhere nice. We had a reservation so we stayed. We all slide to one side of the table and got cozy.
Second, the food was very good with the exception of the chicken stew which was awful, bad cafeteria food at best. Oops in the kitchen or what?
Third, the service was strange, starting with the hostess (see the first item). We wanted to try as many dishes as possible so we shared 6 dishes. With the arrival of each dish we had to call the waitress back over to get a serving utensil. After a couple times we asked if they were unused to people sharing and they said yes that was usual but still needed to ask every time 🤔. Because each dish was so different, Ceviche (amazing) to empanadas (delish) to Mussels (good) we wanted new clean small plates, they looked confused by our request. It was a strange vibe.
Unfortunately, the search for a great Peruvian place in Toronto continues!
The food was absolutely delicious and service was way above and beyond. It was unfortunate that they were out of most wines and all desserts. Will definitely be back and will recommend to friends.
Best food in Toronto .. or the whole world. Love this place!
Food was absolutely delicious. However attire of servers made it less appealing. We were the only ones in the restaurant at the time but food took quite a long time to arrive. Wine list extensive but selections overpriced. Bench style seating was synonymous to a cafeteria style decor.
I went to Kay Pacha with my family to celebrate a birthday. It is a lovely little restaurant with a relaxed vibe, beautiful decor, and warm ambiance. The service was good with attentive wait staff. It was a pretty chilly with the A/C pumping when we got there at 7 pm, but it warmed up a bit as it got busier - bring a sweater just in case. The food was quite good for the most part. The highlights were the Ceviche de Atun, Gnocchi Huancaina and the Chaufa de Quinoa - all very delicious! The Chaufa de Mariscos was also tasty, but needed a bit more seafood and spices to punch it up to excellent. Our least favourite dishes were the beef heart skewers which were unfortunately a little tough and a dish (the name of which I can't recall) that was like a stir fry with noodles, seafood & chicken - it was quite bland. I would come back again now that I've sussed out the menu for the real gems!
Very good food on the a bit pricey side. Service was outstanding and the food excellent. We enjoy Peruvian food and found that two of the dishes we ordered were superb, the others were very good.
Book early for a table, the bar is dark.
will be back for sure. Food was amazing and service super
Very attentive service, and extremely accommodating to our gluten free company. The food was outstanding.
Overall a lovely experience.
Food was fabulous, full of flavour and an interesting change from the norm. The watermelon salad is a must along with the beef stir fry.
A great restaurant in a thriving neighborhood.
The decor was amazing. However, unlike our expectations, we did not get what we would wanted - true Peruvian influence food. Also as big wine fans, the wine selection was not something intersting.
We have been trying to go the Kay Pasha for a number of months now. Service was friendly and helpful and the food was delicious. I would definitely recommend it.
One small comment. In the past I have tried to call the restaurant to confirm some questions (eg. do they have a license to bring my own wine etc.?). There is only a recorded message (I tried many many times) as no one ever seems to answer the phone. Sometimes a personal touch of being able to talk to a person helps.
Great service. Our server really accommodated our allergy requests and recognized our anniversary celebration.
Very enjoyable dinner. Chicken skewers were very good.
What a night. Fantastic food - we had the sharing menu which was a great value and there was so much food....each item was better than the next - we ended up taking some home. The staff were friendly, there when we needed and we never had to ask for anything twice. The atmosphere was also exactly what we needed. There were 7 of us and we were seated at a large round table. We will absolutely be back!
The ceviche, seafood fried rice and cocktails are amazing. The venue is intimate and beautiful, if a little loud. Overall good experience and definitely would recommend.
The service is frustratingly slow. Reservation was at 6pm, we were the third table in the entire place and drinks still took 20 minutes. Not everyone in my party of 4 ordered an appetizer and they waited 2 hours for their main dish to arrive (restaurant was full by then). There was a long wait for the mains well after the appetizers were finished. We had other plans after dinner that were ruined. The music is too loud for normal conversation. They were out of the ingredients to serve the only salad on the menu. Their classic pisco sour is all I enjoyed and at $16 it was a stretch. During my first visit we were brought a dessert decorated with crushed pistachios even though we warned the waiter we had a nut allergy. Needless to say, I will not be returning.
Ceviche is amazing. Service is always fantastic. Small but inviting and comfortable space to dine. Love this restaurant.
The food is simple but bursting with flavour and is presented well. Portions are small, but that seems to balance out for the great quality.
Loved the 2 Ceviches we ordered. The chicken stew and Miami ribs were okay. The apps were great. Next time will try different mains.
Great place with a cool feature ceiling at St. Clair W. Nice atmospheric restaurant that serves authentic Peruvian dishes and cocktails. Will come back here again!
I have been here many time always a wonderful experience! Delicious food and great service 👌
It was a great experience. Food and service were superb. My only criticism is that $16. for a Pisco Sour is way too much.
Delicious meals and cocktails. Service was top notch.
Awesome as always!
Great sample of peruvian food, absolutely delicious.
Outdoor patio less pleasant than indoors
This was a terrible representation of Peruvian food and I would not recommend anyone going. Service was extremely slow and took me having to send dirty looks to the staff so they would come get our orders for food and for drinks. Food was overpriced for what they served. Mark up on the wine was ridiculous. A $15 bottle was marked up to $60... never have I seen that much less in a restaurant that could never be classified as upscale. I have never been more disappointed to go out for dinner.
Outside can be noisy and ambience takes a hit, but then the weather was fabulous and we dealt with the noise.
Great food, great service.
Great portion size, flavours were on point and the staff was very attentive.
Wonderful atmosphere and food as always. We got the empanaditas, ceviche and Miami ribs. Everything was fresh and the citrusy ceviche definitely served as a great palette cleanser almost for the ribs. A definite must try if you’re in the area!
Best Peruvian food in Toronto. Everything was spectacular, from the service to the ambience. Couldn't have asked for a better meal and experience.
The food was delicious and the menu offerings were very good and interesting. Great place for friends and family gatherings. Service is good too.
Pretty good interesting food. Cerviche was very good. Tuna taco was great. Deep fried agave was bland with a bland sauce. Seafood and rice dish was excellent. Good value for money, except for drinks which were small and expensive.
The food was actually better than five stars. Highly recommended
The food and flavours of each dish were outstanding! Nice ambiance with the wooden panelling and bright windows. Service was not as impressive as you would expect from this caliber of restaurant; server was fine but small things were not done until asked, like refilling wine/water, and changing plates (tapas style, so many flavours/sauces get mixed); didn't recommend the approx. number of dishes we'd need or that we should consider ordering two orders of skewers for the number of people we were. All in all, the food and wine quality made up for the evening.
The food is not peruvian, all the flavours are different, ceviche poor, causa nothing to compare, aji de gallina too cheesy, anticuchos no flavour, lomo saltado not at all, chicha morada terrible. You can't have a cheff from another country cooking peruvian food. Prices too high for the quality.
Beautiful location, with a great vibe. I'd say all the dishes except for the mains were amazing. I am a bit disappointed with the fact that it wasn't made clear that the mains are huge enough for sharing. And overly salty...but still a great spot to catch some sharing bites
I went to Kay Pacha with my boyfriend and we both agreed it was some of the best food we had ever eaten in our entire lives! Not only was the food amazing but the service was so great and the ambiance of the restaurant is so cool! Love this place.
The $50 menu (person) is perfect to share between 8 people at least. Food was delicious and servers were very friendly
