“Train brings the sushi to you”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2014

It is fantastic that you can see sushi drive by on a train before you decide. You can also custom order more exotic sushi especially if someone past you along the route scoops up what you had your eye on. The deep-fried squid is the best. Some of the dishes are very authentic. I wish they would clean the sides of the train weekly. The dust is sort of demoralizing though the top looks clean.

“Sushi train all aboard ”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2014

This place is great . Can't count the number of times I've ate here . The sushi is good , and it's a fun place to sit down the chefs put out sushi on the train and it drives itself around the table , grab what you wish plates are priced $ according to colour . The other option is ask the chef for something specific and he'll make it for you . The green tea here rules too .

“a pleasant surprise”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2014

we don't usually go to conveyor belt sushi places but when we are tourists, we are more flexible. and I am glad we did. the sushi there were good and fresh. they also have some fried dishes. we esp. loved the scallop sushi and the fried calamari. tasty with reasonable price. it's not no cheap but the other Japanese ramen wasn't good at all and the other Canadian restaurants were too expensive. so this is a good one to enjoy some simple good sushi fast. we will definitely recommend this to our friends or will go back ourselves.

“Sushi House Banff - Train cars carry the sushi”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2014

We stopped in for lunch. Its a small square bar with a train that goes around and you pick what you want off the train cars and eat it at the bar. Nice to see the food before you decide. Food was good. The plates are colored so you tell the price off the menu. Our lunch for 2 was 24 bucks, we were in and out really fast, I think we ate 5-6 dishes with no drinks.
The place is a dated and far from trendy, but we will probably be back, it was a quick and easy lunch we both enjoyed. Took a while to pay the bill, the cashier lady was nowhere to be found.

“Sushi anyone ?”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2014

Best sushi in town. Made right in front of you. Small place but unforgettable:) all dishes travel around on the train so it's convenient to grab them as they come. Also chef is always ready to take your order if what you like is not on the train at the moment. Must see!!!!
