Great sushi in the mountains

We're from Seattle where we have lots of great sushi options. We weren't expecting sushi to be great in such a remote mountain location--but it was. They had wild salmon which was excellent. We chose this place because of the good Trip Advisor reviews and because they had a more extensive menu... read more

After a long day, we prefered to eat some sushi. By TP, I found this place. It was a bad decision. They can't make sushi properly. The sushirice felt off and there was no flavour in it. I recommend to go somewhere else. Eventhough, the price is not to high.

My wife and i just moved from vancouver island and this sushi is just as good if not better! There are lots of options and it is very affordable. We will keep going back because it was so delicious.

Always freshly made and reasonably quick service. The staff are very polite and food is excellent. We eat here often and have never been disappointed. The pricing is very reasonable.

There is a fair amount of options on the menu and the sushi is made fresh. The staff are always friendly and it's a great option for take out. The spicy salmon roll is very good.

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.

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.
