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.

We live in the neighbourhood, so it is ideal to do both. It is amongst the best if not the best sushi I have had in Calgary. Very fresh, and there is a great variety. You have to try the Unagi...my mouth is watering just thinking about it! The owner is great and very friendly, he always has a smile... More

The staff is always welcoming and attentive to us and our boys. The sushi/sashimi is always ultra fresh and at perfect temperature to the rice, I don't compromise quality, you get what you pay for here!. I appreciate the attention to detail all the staff demonstrate when we come in, which is never enough!

My boyfriend and I went for lunch - We both found the lunch menus to be of great valuel! The sushi is a little on the higher side ($$$) but well worth it! The sashimi literally melted in my mouth. Everything was so fresh and tasty! This place is now our favourite sushi place in Calgary!

Met for lunch at Zipang to try out somewhere new to us. Tables are crowded into this relatively small restaurant so privacy is out if that is what you are looking for. I would say that the service was pretty average... not overly attentive... it was a job. I was expecting excellent sushi from what I had heard and thought... More

Had lunch here this week for the first time. I have low expectations for prairie sushi at the best if times and my expectations were surpassed. Very good portions and fresh tasting bites. There is a heavy fishy smell in the room which is a bit of a put off, but hopefully some fabreze can resolve that. Certainly the best... More

I don't understand how this place has had strong reviews on other sites. If it smells that strong of fish how much old fish is in the room? The foods was not good and we woke up the next day VERY sick the service was also not good.

I went here for lunch with some friends and enjoyed high quality sashimi and rolls. The ambiance is pretty low key, but the fish is great. Service here is fast and friendly. I have no doubt this is among the better sushi places in Calgary, but I know a better one!
