All aboard the Sushil train

Excellent sushi. There is limited seating to maybe ~ 20 people, and you sit at the sushi bar which has a train that circles where you can take off plates of sushi, fried chicken, and other items as you wish. You can also order off the menu. Definitely would eat here again the next time I am... read more

It's fun to watch the train and pick your sushi. I'm not a big sushi fan, but I really enjoyed deep fried shrimp roll and spring rolls (not greasy and very crispy) Price is between $3-5 a plate, so can be reasonable depending on how much you pick up.

We have often stopped here to take out sushi on our way to Calgary (eating in the car) and visited the restaurant on numerous occasions with our family and it has always been quite tasty. We always eat here when in town and the sushi bearing train has always proven popular with my children in the past. I recently took... More

My daughter and I have visited this place several times on our visits to Banff - it is small, friendly and she still very much likes the train which brings the sushi round. I have had better (the Samurai at the Fairmont is very good, but lots, lots more expensive), but for the price its good and the sushi chefs... More

Was so stuffed from our huge lunch earlier that day, so for dinner we wanted something quick and easy and wouldnt make us more bloated, sushi house was across the street and perfect. The right amount of food, cool little train that brings your sushi around (not the usual boat). you pick what you want off the train, and you... More

Neat experience! Small restaurant though, so be prepared to wait if you need to. Lots of menu choices and the prices were reasonable. They happily prepared anything we wanted that wasn't on the train too. Lots of cooked choices for those that don't do "raw", so don't be afraid, just try it!

This is a fast, OK place. The balance between rice and protein is a bit skewed in rice's favor, but the fish quality is good and one can ask for something other than what is on the train. I'd say it would never be competitive in a big city with a competitive sushi community, but by the standards of Banff... More

This restaurant doesn't pretend to be anything it's not. It's a family style, casual restaurant that offers good sushi at a great price. You may not have experienced sushi on a train since the 90's but they are bringing it back and it's fun.

I absolutely love sushi but this place not so much. When I visited this place I hadn't eaten almost all day, So I ordered a variety of things and everything I had was okay nothing special ...but my salmon roll was pretty warm and it didn't go down so well. Wouldn't recommend having sushi here though if it's your first... More

Great place to satisfy your sushi cravings while in Banff. We only ordered the cheaper plates but still had a delicious meal that didn't break the bank. Be sure to ask the chef to make up plates that are on the menu but don't appear on the 'train'.
