Authentic , quick service, excellent value

Try some of their other dishes besides the Shashimi or Shushi. Excellent Tempura plate and noodle dishes are the best. They now have a second location that is a noodle only restaurant.

The place is small and dark. Came here by recommendation as one of the better places for Ramen. We had ask to slightly modify our ramen and was told NO. At the front is said they won't make any changes during peak hours. This was after the dinner rush, most tables were done and about to leave. There was only... More

I love going there just to eat Udon and Tempura, which is quite crispy without being oily. As am the daughter of Japanese, I can say it's the best udon. As for the other dishes I do not know, but my daughter loves Ramen.

Excellent soups and sushi. Call ahead or prepare to wait. The parking lot is often full to over-flowing.

These guys are fantastic. Fresh, fast, nothing too fancy, yet ever so satisfying. Nothing can beat their ramen on a cold Calgary day. If you've never eaten here, do yourself a favour, make a reservation and try everything on the menu: salmon fingers, sushi rolls, and of course, the RAMEN!!!

Shikiji was serving ENDANGERED SPECIES (bluefin tuna) as their sushi special tonight. My husband and I went to Shikiji tonight and received terrible customer service. The waiter came to our table and told us about their specials, including bluefin tuna sashimi. Since this was the species featured in the documentary about overfishing practices around the world, "The End of the... More

Best in Ramen in town. The last time I was there the Sushi was a bit on the disappointing side, but the ramen was fantastic.

The sushi, sashimi and tempura at Shikiji are the best we've found in Calgary to date. Always fresh and beautifully presented. Daily specials are excellent.

Anytime we go here the food and service is good. I especially love the salmon mango roll along with chicken soba soup. It is a small restaurant with a quaint atmosphere and gets very busy.

We ate there last night. Made a reservation and were seated right beside the bathroom. The table was under constant swarm of fruit flies! We finally asked to be reseated after killing several and seeing more show up. The new table was kitty corner to the fly table so we still had some guests but fewer, so win? The Ramen... More
