This is one of those place you want to keep for yourself. Small room so make a reso. Really mixed crowd from large groups to dates or families. Sushi always fresh and high quality and weekly features to introduce new or seasonal items. The Ramen and Udon bowls are very large but they are happy to pack up what you... More

This is the place to go for Ramen. We had the Chilli Ramen, and it was really good. I had the cold plum wine, which felt good on a summer day. For dessert we had a very sweet traditional - rice cakes in sweet red beans sauce, and a green tea ice cream.

We ordered different sushis and they were all very good. Service is attentive and quick. Price is ok. It can be very busy even at 8pm during the week.

Not sure why people love the ramen here so much. I have had better. The broth was good but the noodles were odd. I did however love the scallop roll. There was a sweetness to it that was very tasty! The dessert was great too!

I cannot say enough good things about the chili goma noodles at Shikiji. Comfort food on a cold day? Check. They also have a good selection of udon and donburi but the ramen is my favourite. Great sushi - definitely fresh and delicious! I always get a few pieces with my ramen order.

I've been going to Shikiji for years and the food has always been delicious and the service excellent. Shikiji gets pretty busy in the evenings, especially on the weekends, so it's always a good idea to make a reservation. The chili goma ramen is amazing, and the spicy tuna rolls and salmon tempura rolls are unbelievably good every time. Always... More

A good friend and I decided to try this restaurant based on the great reviews and to try something new! We were not disappointed! We loved the fruited Sake (Green apple and Lychee). Loved the Gyoza and Teriyaki Chicken Rice bowl. Didn't love the Udon...the noodles were very rubbery. But being new to Japanese food this could be normal. Our... More

We were visiting Calgary but had already been in Canada a few days. We wanted sushi and noticed this place coming back downtown Saturday night from Drumheller and the Badlands. Big mistake. First, our server took a long time to take our order. And when our 6yo asked for kid's chopsticks (chopsticks with a rubber band and a folded piece... More
