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!

Went there few weeks ago with friends and I think this place is meh/decent. Not too expensive and the quality of the sushi was ok. The service was poor and I had to keep going up to the waitresses behind the bar and tell them to bring things. it is clean and it's probably nice to try once but I... More

Best sushi in the city, the sashimi is out of this world you can taste the quality. Make a reservation as it's hard to get a table any night of the week! The deep fried special rolls are a must try.

The food and service is quite good - the ingredients are fresh and you can tell everything is made carefully. It's a little pricey for sushi - but worth it. The restaurant is quite small, though and gets really busy during peak hours. We made a reservation and were seated right away.

Drove by downtown area, searched TripAdvisor for good restaurants, and found here. Very busy place, fresh sashimi and delicious sushi. Love it!

This was not a great place for a quick lunch. We were there before lunch and finally got our food by 12:45 am. We mostly had sashimi (soup too) .... It was busy on the inside though ... I blame the staff on this one. The food was better than average quality. The seating is tight, I heard both tables,... More

Selfishly hesitated to write this review because this place is tiny and I want to make sure I always get a seat. Reservations highly recommended. Best sushi I have ever had in Calgary. Staff is friendly, sushi is AMAZING. Walkable to Bridgeland residents. Introduced to the restaurant by a regular who was greeted warmly by staff. Price was very, very... More
