We tried this place a few times but could never get in. This time we made a reservation, only 5:00 oclock was available. If you want to eat here you have to plan ahead. We had the large tempura plate, some sushi, pork in ginger sauce and chicken with udon noodles. The tempura was very light and... read more

LOVE this restaurant! Good service and great food! Every time I've been here it's been crowded, and it's a small place so waiting is a bit awkward....but totally worth it! I always order rolls and nigiri, so not sure about hot items, but the sushi is really good.

We found this place on Trip Advisor and from the reviews it looked like a great choice. We were not disappointed as all the rolls we ordered were delicious & the Sashimi Salmon & Tuna on the Nigiri were both very fresh & tasty! The service was great as well, they were very quick and friendly. My only complaint was... More

Is it crowded ... yes and guess why? Best Sashimi/Sushi in town and I've tried most of them. Fresh and the specials are out of this world. Suggest strongly that you call for reservations (or ensure that space is available at the counter area) before you try to walk in. They also have a nice selection of other proteins if... More

So far out of all the places I have tried in Calgary this one is probably my favorite. It was a tad more expensive than your average sushi place. I normally find it difficult to get sashimi that I actually enjoy, however this place had some that I found to be very delicious and very fresh. I don't recall the... More

This restaurant is well run and always busy but very friendly. The best part is the food is absolutely amazing, Solid sashimi just melts in your mouth. Calgary's best Japanese restaurant.
