Hit and miss

Miso and tempura are blah but the sashimi was fresh and nicely sized. Service is a little cold at times.

First we had trouble finding parking in downtown. We called Sakana Grill to let them know that we would be late and they neglected to tell us that they actually have free underground parking which we discovered as we walked up to the restaurant. When we entered the place we mentioned to them that they could've told us about the... More

Lunch with my colleagues. Food was alright and reasonable price but staffs were not nice. I prefer to see chef put the glove on when making sushi.

Have visited this resturant countless times and remains one of the better sushi places in the city. They have good quality and a great variety with reasonable prices. Parking is a little of a hassle but worth it

I've been here countless times over the past year and I've been happy everytime. The price is fair and the service is great! The servers are friendly and always pay attention to my needs. The food is really good as well especially the red+black ninja roll and the rainbow roll! I recommend those!

We often go to this location to share the Love boat as a family with a few sides to share. Granted we did go on New Years Eve and the restaurant was busy but this cannot be the full downfall in lack of attention and customer service. Most often we enjoy our stay at the DT location but the service... More

Sakana Grill offers reasonably good Japanese food in Calgary's Chinatown. Not the best in town but good sized portions of tasty fresh sushi and sashimi. Free house appetizers (California roll) started the meal at a recent lunch. Tempura shrimp were large, crunchy and hot - not all places offer that. Signature rolls offer added touches like mango and spicy sauces.... More
