“Good Sushi! service so so! pirce high for quality”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2011

Me and my girlfriend been there a couple of times and we enjoy it, but I have to say my last experience was not the best! The service was pretty terrible and the wait for the food was really long.
I have to say the food was still really good, just waiting 15 min for a drink and then half an hour without getting anything food was not impressing!
The ambiance is ok, but really bright.

“Asian Fusion at it's best!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2011

What an amazing restaurant. I walked in sceptical that I would find good food and left feeling like I had eaten the best Asian Fusion meal ever! The fish was fresh and the tastes were amazing and subtle. The Sushi was out of this world and I didn't think that Tempura shrimp could taste that much better than everywhere else I had tried it, but it did. Hats off to the chefs, they really outdid themselves and left my husband and I wanting to go back and eat here every time we go back to Canmore.

“Our absolute favorite restaurant in Canmore!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2011

This place is a must if you're a sushi fan. The crunchy salmon rolls & the tempura shrimp rolls are amazing & presentation is fanastic. Nice atmosphere, very friendly service & fantastic martinis. Was just there last night & already craving the next visit! :)

“Delicious Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2011

We ate this restaurant since we were staying at the Silver Creek Lodge. We were not disappointed. The steak teriyaki, sushi and dumplings were sublime. In addition, the service was excellent and we had a view of the mountains. If the weather had been warmer, we could have sat outside on the deck. We wished we had had the opportunity to eat there again!
