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

Very good sashimi and sushi. One of the few establishments that also serves soba noodles (in addition to udon). And they have ramen. A really good variety of different Japanese foods. Have eaten here several times and always a good choice!

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.
