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

I have been to this restaurant many times in the last few months and have enjoyed every time, excellant food, great service and atmosphere, moderately priced. By far this is not only the best sushi in Canmore but the best restaurant in Canmore. The only down fall that I have found is they don't have sunomuno salad on the menu... More

One of the best Japanese restaurants I've eaten at. My husband is not a sushi fan but that evening he succumbed to my charm. He had the salmon teriyaki sizzling skillet which he truly enjoyed.

As soon as you enter you feel welcome. They have the best Raman noodle dish at lunch I have ever tried, and their sushi is always fresh and delicious.
