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

Unfortunately, I've been 3 times (never my initiative - always invited by friends) and I hope to never go back, mostly because the seats are extremely uncomfortable: hard wooden benches (without backs) that are way too deep (and I'm 6' 1")! The place is also dreary and the food isn't anything special. There are MANY other choices of sushi restaurants... More

It was delcious, the server (hannah) was extremely accomodating, at one point she even took a picture of the ingriedients of the wasabi for me to make sure it was communicated clearly (I have a soy allergy...). I also couldnt have the reg salad they serve, and she was able to bring me a... More
