Owner Shigeo Kimura founded Ginko Japanese restaurant in 1982. Over the past 25 years Ginko has evolved to bring the finest Japan has to offer the Toronto area. The name Ginko is derived from the word \”Gingko\” an ancient oriental tree. The tree flourishes in season to produce a yellow fruit and unique, fan-shaped leaves, which turn a beautiful golden color in the fall. Held in high esteem by the Japanese as a symbol of prosperity, the \”Gingko\” tree only begins to grow it\”s golden seeds on it’s 20th year of maturity. The journey of the \”Gingko\” tree and Ginko are one in the same, a continual evolution of expression of nutritious, healthy and tasty food. Located inside DoubleTree Hotel near the airport, our staff strives to bring you, our guest, a traditional and modern Japanese cuisine that is sure to enlighten all taste buds.
Very authentic Japanese. This is a hidden gem and although the restaurant appearance may be lacking modern flare, the food sure makes up for it. Absolutely delicious sushi.
One of the best Japanese options near YYZ.
It’s funny how they only give you one mushroom cut into 4 on an entree, that’s a big stingy! When asked about the yelp checkin special which was a free green tea (valued at $1 according to the menu) they refused to honour it! It’s green tea! How stingy can you be?
Excellent as always, fantastic staff and bar none the best Sushi in Ontario!!!
An overall great experience. The service was wonderful. The food was great. The prices were very reasonable. I highly recommend Ginko’s.
Had dinner with my best friend to celebrate her birthday. Our server Alex was friendly and genuine. Food was delicious and portion was reasonable. Decor was old fashioned but seating was comfortable. We had a great time!
We were celebrating our son’s 46th birthday. On his recommendation we chose the Ginko restaurant. Close to our home and close to where he works so became a logical choice. Service was very good and the food choices for lunch were very adequate and flavourful. Overall a good choice and and easy place to recommend.
Consistently the best Japanese restaurant and one of the best restaurants near Pearson International. Pride in freshness, creation and service are apparent with every dish. Experience it for yourself.
We had ordered o toro sushi and they switched to aburi toro without telling us. I think the fish wasn’t of as good quality and they sneakily changed it.
High quality Sushi in a relaxing ad nice setting. Fish was very high quality and very fresh.
We came in on a busy night but found service to be accommodating but not particularly accurate. The restaurant had a very large party and several small tables that kept the staff moving. The lone sushi chef was struggling to keep up with the numerous orders but when food was sent out it was of good quality. Nothing here will have you writing home but it’s a cut above the typical strip mall sushi joints and much better than the nearby competitors on Dixon Road. We didn’t order anything from the kitchen and focused solely on the sushi on this visit.
