my fav ramen place in town

I'm a BIG fan of Japanese food. Despite having difficulty finding a quality sushi restaurant in Calgary, this place definitely met my ramen crave. Occasionally I will have the yakitori don for a change, which nvr fails either. only complains is how long the wait can be sometimes.. So try to... read more

Here is one restaurant that knows how to please everyone. Whether you're in the mood for Ramen or sushi your craving will be satisfied at Shikiji. They have been in Calgary for at least 15 years serving fresh food full of flavour. There are a few Vegetarian options with veggie gyoza, rolls and salads. We always order the chili goma... More

Go often for the lunch box. had to write a review. Price is reasonable for what you get, could lower the price by a dollar to bring it more in line with other businesses in the area. Food is tasty and brought out fast.

The price is reasonable and the flavor is delicious! My wife and I tried the BBQ Pork Ramen and Chili Goma Ramen. I would recommend Chili Goma Ramen over BBQ Pork Ramen. The BBQ Pork Ramen definitely has room for improvement. The service is excellent, very polite, and efficient!

My husband and I have been here several times for dinner. The sushi is excellent, and the prices are reasonable. Also, we have always had really good service. Make sure to make a reservation, as this restaurant is usually packed. Overall, I would highly recommend this spot.

My friend had heard how good the ramen was. Apparently, they only make a certain amount and when it's gone, gone for the day! We started with sharing an assorted tempura, shrimp and vegetables. It was very good, crunchy, not greasy.We can order bento boxes anytime so we both tried the Chilli Goma Ramen. It was great, spicy and very... More

Overall – Stopped here for lunch as I was craving a Bento Box and my usual place closed down. I thought the food was good but average and the price was above average (for a lunch), which usually is not a good combination. While I did like the Bento box combinations available for lunch, I would likely not return here... More

I came here twice with 4 people. Both times I got the Chili Goma Ramen and was super pumped. It's a bit salty but so tasty. The sushi was alright (our specialty roll around $14) and the other ramens ($14-$16) at the table were also alright. I would come here for the Chili Goma alone and maybe a roll. It's... More

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
