I was first introduced to Kiri during a dinner meeting and was hesitant at trying another sushi place in Atlanta, since most have not been up to my standard in freshness or flavor. However, as I was open-minded and figured I had nothing to lose.
Kiri is located in the Trader Joe’s shopping center off of Monroe Dr. about 2 blocks away from Piedmont Park. There is a sufficient amount of parking in the complex unless it’s during peak times, like on a sunny Saturday afternoon or between 6pm-8pm on the weekends. It is tucked in the back corner behind the Starbucks and right next door to the UPS store. They have an small outside patio space with umbrellas for shade or you can enjoy the modern ambiance of inside the restaurant. The space is not large with only about 10-12 tables, but they present a bright, modern welcoming feel with white walls, green grass trim, straight lines and chrome accents.
