Japanese Goodness Close to Downtown

Shikiji has long been a favourite of mine, but admittedly I haven't been in a number of year. Craving ramen while I was downtown I was reminded of how close it is to the core. This is especially useful for tourists staying in the core. By cab it would be less than $10 and worth every penny... read more

I have been to Shikiji three times and each time the meal has been incredible. The chilli goma ramen is the best soup I have ever had and the appetizers/sashimi are also amazing. I will be back for more ramen soon!

I am a snob when it comes to Japanese food as I lived in Japan for 5 years. But the Chili Goma Ramen here at Shikiji is to die for! I dream of it everyday. Since I was introduced to it early October, I have been there 6 times and that was only 3 weeks ago! I really think Shikiji... More

Was here for late lunch on Sunday and this is now my new favourite place to get ramen in town! I totally agree with another reviewer - the Chili Goma Ramen is everything! We ordered the large Tempura, Gyoza, Tako Yaki, and a large Bento Box and of course the Chili Goma for each of us and the verdit was... More

Never have I ever encountered such abhorrent customer service in my life which has prompted me to post my first restaurant review. Firstly, I do have to say that the food is pretty good considering the lack of ramen and sushi options in Calgary and Edmonton. However, I will never step foot into this establishment again due to the utter... More

Best Sushi in Calgary. This is our favourite Japanese restaurant and we always go here when we are craving sushi or noodles. Excellent food and good service.

I don't know what to say other than everyone needs to try the chili goma. Since discovering this place about two years ago it has become a persistent and frequent craving. Spicy, tangy, crunchy, chewy, salty, everything ❤

I have had the Soy Ramen, the Shio Ramen, the Miso Ramen, and the Chili Goma Ramen at Shikiji and I have to say this is the best ramen place in Calgary by a long shot. Great texture to the noodles and amazing flavor in the broth. My favorite is the Soy Ramen or the BBQ Pork Ramen which is... More

Here is one restaurant that knows how to please everyone. Whether you're in the mood for Ramen or sushi your craving will be satisfied at Shikiji. They have been in Calgary for at least 15 years serving fresh food full of flavour. There are a few Vegetarian options with veggie gyoza, rolls and salads. We always order the chili goma... More
