Decent sushi at a fair price...

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... read 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'.

We try to pop in every time we are in Banff. Our kids love the train the sushi is displayed on & being able to pick off a dish as it drives by is always enjoyed by our family. The sushi is made by the chef in the centre of the track & he takes requests off the menu as... More

Ordered take out..... which took a long time, but was worth the wait. The restaurant seemed to have only one sushi chef, which was a bit annoying. The quality of the food was excellent, fresh, and served beautifully.

The train runs it's rounds endlessly, while the chef fills the cargobay with sushi and other stuff which are made in front of you. The fish is fresh and of good quallity. To my liking the sushi is rolled a bit loosely, but the advantage of that is the rise-to-contents-ratio is very nice. Prices are mid-range, but it's worth for... More

Don't get me wrong quality food indeed, but wow is it expensive for the size and we all know that locals don't enjoy places whee the have to pay like a tourist. I've been quite a few times out of pure sushi cravings but always regret for much of a rip off it is. It also really needs a facelift... More

Sushi on a train. You sit, you grab, you stuff. You smile. Honestly; it was a nice relaxing lunch. Their spicy tuna was delicious; the salmon was lovely...pretty decent tuna. The staff was friendly and seemed to be enjoying themselves; and I mean that in a good way...very friendly vibe. The only thing I'd pick at is I'd have liked... More

I was always skeptical about sushi train places but it's quick and quite nice. I was surprised. Very limited seating though, might have to wait for a while.
