Good, fresh sushi

No real surprises here, which can definitely be a positive at a sushi spot. The waitresses are very nice, not too speedy and can barely speak English, but not a bad experience. Don't go if you are in a hurry -- the pace here is definitely relaxed.

One of the tragedies of being local to the area is knowing that everything is slightly overpriced in Banff and unfortunately this clouds my judgement. We were overdue for lunch and chose Sushi Bistro without looking at the menu, which was our fault. Everything is a la carte. There aren't any combos or meal specials. We were seated quickly and...

First, the staff here are lovely and the price of their food is very reasonable. They have many options apart from sushi also. We tried many different meals - sushi and otherwise. All were great.

Come and give a try. Located in Brewster Mountain Lodge. You will place your order on a card and then chef will bring it to you on a single plate. Really tasty sushi. Highly recommended.

The prices are very reasonable and the food was tasty and the fish was very fresh. The thing that made this a three and not higher was that much of the nigiri and some of the rolls fell apart and didn't hold when picked up. By the time we left we all had our soy dishes full of rice. Staff... More

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 wasn't holding together well with the sushi. They checked... 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.
