“good food but expensive”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2012

Located inside Banff fairmount, this Japanese restaurant served very good food, but expensive. Over $100 (US) for 2. They are closed on Tuesday/Wednesday. Place had many customers, and again food was very good. Would return

“Excellent restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2012

Had a great meal here one night when staying at the hotel. It is very small so booking would be recommended. The food was fresh and delicious. It was first rate Japanese food.

“Samurai Restaurant, Banff Springs”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2012

We were there with 2 other from our tour group for fine dining. It was quite disappointing for us because we are used to great Japanese food in Melbourne. The Sukiyaki was poor. No real Japanese atmosphere, just an old white waiter dressed like a Japanese.
We expected better food in a great Chateau.

“Cafeteria like environment”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 4, 2012

Sushi was goo, but the environment was surprisingly sterile. Very small room but excellent service.
