Best sushi restaurant in the bow valley. All the locals know that. The only sushi place that doesn't charge everyone like a tourist. Large portions at a very good price! Once in awhile they will have all you can eat sushi too, how can anyone not like that for like 20 dollars!? Awesome people, super polite, very clean establishment and... More

Restaurant is Old but very comfy and homie. It is kinda open kitchen restaurant. As soon as you enter the restaurant all chefs will greet you at ones and say bye when you leave. We had Chef's blend Japanese tea to start our dinner. As server explained it was mix of brown rice and matcha tea leaves powder. I liked... More

Ate here late on a weekday evening, and ended up with the place to ourselves. Service was slow, but the fish was fresh and tasty.

We shared avocado rolls, edamame, teriyaki and fermented soy rolls. Perfect amount of food for two and the price was very reasonable. Very nice staff - attentive even though one was in training. Relaxed atmosphere. We were so glad to find this "jewel" in Canmore.

If you want sushi in the bow valley this is the place. Excellent food, I love the BBQ eel here. The calamari is some of the best I've ever had.

We had dinner one evening. The place is nice, the food is average but expensive, and the service was poor, although it was not so bussy.

Casual dining in a very small place. We found it very easily as we parked in the parking lot behind the main street. sushi was very good although not the best we have ever had. Very reasonably priced and a great option if sushi is what you are in the mood for.

This place is a staple for me. Friendly service and quality sushi. Dinner time can be busy but worth the wait. Its a little hard to find as well but make the effort ;)

This is a highly recommended restaurant from our friends but it was a challenge to find. It is in the alley behind the Bank of Montreal on the main street in Canmore. There is a free parking lot beside them that is huge. My friend had beef sukiyaki ( I hope I got that right!) which had incredible flavour. I... More
