Dropped in in December on the way back from Cochrane. Place was full so we sat at the bar. You really need a reservation for this place. Had all our favourites and then headed out into the extreme cold. Where we were seated, away from the door, was good. Good to ask for a table away from the door when... More

Calgary has a lot of sushi restaurants but perhaps due to the distance from the Ocean a lot of them are so-so in terms of fish freshness, or they focus on the fancy looking, big sauce covered sushi rolls rather than the fish. Zipang however is excellent. It is particularly a place for Sashimi lovers. The fish is always fresh... More

I fell for Zipang sushi bar the first time I visit my calgarian son and daughter-in-law a few years ago. I was of course overjoyed that we went there for my belated birthday dinner. Zipang was packed and queued with diners of all ages. Luckily we had reserved a table but still had to wait for some minutes for those... More

I went for a dinner with friends/business. Food was good, staff were efficient and unobtrusive. The restaurant was well lit and neat. It's a small cozy place. Standard sushi fare and more. Try it, you'll like it.

I wen't here with my wife for a special occasion and left very satisfied. The sushi was very tasty and fresh, the service was extremely good and the prices were reasonable. My wife loved her Seasoned Deep Fried Squid but I found my prawn tempura rather tasteless, texture was really good but the flavour wasn't there. All in all I... More

I'm from Toronto and we have pretty good sushi bar, hence I rate this place with 3stars. This place is mediocre the least and very pricey for what you get. We ordered the black cod entree, spicy tuna, rainbow roll, california and large tempura. The black cod was supposed to be an entree as per the menu yet when we... More

It is very difficult to find a nice sushi place in Calgary. Most of sushi places are both overpriced and not to Vancouver standards. But here at least the quality is about the same as sushi places in Vancouver. At least you won't be disappointed.

I like trying out new sushi places around town (lunch and dinner). I thought this place was going to be crowded over lunch but there was enough space, we arrived at 12:19PM. The lunch special (teriyaki chicken and sushi) was great. The chicken came in large pieces and the sushi was very fresh. The service was attentive and fast. I... More

This is a fabulous spot with the freshest of fresh sushi, sashimi, rolls, and grilled fish. The cooked spinach with black sesame paste was delicious as an appetizer. The menu selection was large and varied. Don't miss this one!

Thank bwdw
