“Even if you don't like sushi!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 27, 2012

The service was very good. My wife loved the sushi and the hot plate do it your self meal was decent although it is quite expensive. A meal for 3 (1 child) cost about $140.00 including 2 beers.
I'd say it would be better for a couple sitting at the sushi bar as the restaurant itself is very plain.

“a little delight”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

This was a relaxed delight and a nice change in menu. Banff is heavy on steaks etc so some light sushi was just what we needed

“Not fancy but really great!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2012

The restaurant isn't beautiful but the quality of the fish is great. Everything is flown in fresh from Vancouver daily. Suki Yaki and Shabu Shabu are also a nice change.
