Fresh and flavourful

Small, charming spot. We were seated quickly. I hadn't seen a plastic sheet before to check off my selections and didn't really like it but other than that, the service experience was fine. The food arrived quickly and the fish tasted super fresh and flavourful. Only quibble was our sticky rice... read more

I've been to this restaurant a couple times and I've never been disappointed. A large menu to choose from and always of the highest caliber. The salmon melted in my mouth. And I love the little gummy that props up each diner's chopsticks. Please enjoy!

Maybe, just maybe my expectations were high due to other reviews on TripAdvisor. But sadly I have nothing positive to say about this place. From the moment we waited too long to be seated things just went down hill. Services was terrible due to the lake of communication & even awareness for customers. The restaurant was not busy, however there... More

I like the Ramen (noodles), especially in a cold winter evening, which warms my heart and soul. Speedy service with friendly staff. The Asparagus roll is also unique.

I am a Sushi and Japanese restaurant snob and am very critical -- all I can say is that this place is superb! The sashimi is extremely fresh. The uni (sea urchin) terrific. The salmon eggs perfect. The house saki great. The small dishes and rolls well done! I loved this place and went back twice. Prices are very reasonable.... More

Went here for dinner on a Saturday night (after 7). Not a lot of customers, speedy service, and decent food. It was perfect after a busy day of touring around.

Always fresh, always fun and of course always great sushi. A small cozy location...worth waiting for a spot at the edge of the train ...select your favourite sushi from the train as it loops around the chef. Intriguing watching the sushi being created.

I've been living in Banff for the past 2 years and I used to love this place. The portion size is small but it's quite cheap and the flavor is good. Until,,, I recommended it to some people, who I needed to impress, and Sushi Bistro disappointed them. The customers ordered food, waited for 45 minutes, and asked the server... More

We have eaten here many times now and every single time the sushi is as fresh as can be, and we are talking sashimi, not just rolls. The tea is also the most toasty delicious rice greaan tea you ever drank. When we are in Banff we are almost always exerting ourselves somehow, whether hiking, biking, or skiing, and time... More

Went here for the first time last night and will definitely be back! The choice was very good and reasonably priced. The miso soup was delicious as were the spicy salmon rolls, gyoza and veg tempura. It also tells you how many calories you are eating which is actually quite interesting and made me think a little bit more on... More
